Pricing & Information
Meet one on one with personal trainer for your assessment and then our personal trainer will design a workout plan for you and connect over the next 4 weeks via email. At the end of the 4 weeks you and your trainer meet again for a follow-up assessment to see progress. You will not meet face to face on a weekly basis (like with our regular personal training); as all communication/check ins are done through email. If assistance is needed, the Personal Trainer will decide to meet face to face for help on exercises as you progress through the workouts.
Cost: $100/4 weeks

Amanda joined the YMCA staff team in October 2017.

Amanda was loving the results but wanted to build more muscle mass so she began body building. She loves putting in hard work and seeing results. Amanda’s passion for fitness comes from wanting to help people. It took her a long time to learn the things she has about fitness, and she wanted to pass that along. She wants to help people gain back their self-confidence, just as she did. She wants to encourage people through the tough stuff and celebrate the results with them.
