  3. Take the Online Quiz (Must get an 18 or higher to continue.)
  4. Schedule a session with one of our trainers to be introduced to the weight room and receive your YMCA wristband. This training session will be 30 minutes and cover any questions, comments or concerns from the previous steps, as well as provide an overview of training in the weight room. An individual session can be purchased for $25, or the Teen Jumpstart package can be purchased for $100. The Teen Jumpstart packet includes four sessions with a personal trainer.

A Youth Waiver must be signed by the parent/legal guardian and kept on file at the Service Deck. Upon passing the exam and completing one session with a personal trainer, the youth member will be given a bracelet to wear, allowing access to all of the weight rooms.
