We can help you start and stick with your fitness routine.

We all need the advice of an expert sometimes, which is why—at no extra cost—Y members have access to a health coach. Whether you’re just starting your wellness journey or have been active for years, YMCA health coaching can help you reach your goals—inside and outside the gym!

Health coaching is perfect for someone who needs a complete workout plan. Members can meet with a Y Health Coach on an ongoing basis for a one-on-one fitness coaching program. Our coaches use evidence-based methods to help you develop sustainable behavioural change.
