WYOMING HEALTH & WELLNESS
Do More, Be More.
Meet one-on-one with the YMCA Wellness Staff to discuss your individualized health and well-being goals. During your Wellness Orientation, the trainer will work with you to show you how to use the equipment. Free for members, please see the front desk to schedule your appointment.
Physical fitness can be measured, improved and guided to an enhanced feeling of well-being, leading you to a better life. For members looking to track their health and well-being progress, consider baseline and follow-up fitness assessments. YMCA staff can perform an evaluation that will provide you with current fitness levels that can establish a starting point and/or identifying training needs. Follow-up assessments can evaluate the success of the program in achieving your objectives.
Contact the Member Service Desk to schedule your free Fitness Assessment.
The Y is committed to not only having programs that strenthen adults, but also for kids and families. Below are some programs and classes that help Youth become more active and healthier.
Gwen Dewar, Ph.D (2008) states that the brains of physically fit kids showed evidence of more extensive processing during tasks. Fit kids also have a faster reaction time than sedentary kids Neurotransmitters in the brain boost happiness and build confidence.
Youth Fitness Class is a course designed to prepare 12-14 year olds in the proper way to use the Wellness Center. The class teaches youth about basic anatomy and physiology, the importance of all segments of working out (warm-up, stretching, cardiovascular and strength training and cool down), how to use the Wellness Center equipment, other ideas for working out.
In order for the child to visit the Wellness Center by him or herself, they must attend all classes in the session and demonstrate a proficiency in the use of all equipment. Classes are available by appointment.
