Healthy Living

The FREE YMCA coaching service that helps you make healthy living a habit

personal training

Getting in shape can seem daunting and intimidating, but with your very own coach, it doesn’t have to be! The YMCA’s mYfitness services are designed to guide those who are totally new to an active lifestyle, or trying to get back on track. We’ll help you get started with a sustainable fitness routine, so you can enjoy the habit of healthy living, rather than enduring the fallout of quick fixes like yo-yo dieting.

What is mYfitness?

Physical fitness is deeply personal: what works for your best friend won’t necessarily work for you. We want everyone to find the fitness routine that suits them perfectly, which is why our mYfitness services are included in your membership. Our coaches help you set goals, determine which activities are best suited to your unique needs, and develop a plan to help you stay on track.

What are the perks?  

1. A coach who’s there for you every step of the way.

Your mYfitness coach will show you where to find spaces and equipment throughout your Y, introduce you to your group fitness instructors, and check in on a regular basis to recommend new classes or give you some motivating advice.

2. A routine tailored to your individual needs.

mYfitness coaches are available for 30-minute-long private consultations, where you can discuss your goals, health concerns, strengths, and struggles you’ve had in the past. Your mYfitness routine will be designed just for you, to help you overcome those difficulties, and get on the path towards a healthy lifestyle.

3. A place in the YMCA community.

The YMCA is so much more than just a gym. Our staff, volunteers, and members are right at the centre of their communities. Your mYfitness coach is here to make you feel at home: to make sure your questions are answered, provide you with the resources and motivation you need to stay on track, and connect you with the people you’ll see on your next visit.

Stop by the membership desk  at your local Y today to connect with your mYfitness coach and begin the journey towards a healthier, happier you!
