FREE Fitness Center Orientations and/or Consults

As a member of the Kennebec Valley YMCA, we encourage you to take advantage of a complimentary equipment orientation to our Fitness Centers so you can feel confident that you will be using the cardio and strength training machines safely and effectively. We provide charts for seat measurements, recommended starting weights and/or reminders on proper form are provided for a safe and effective total body training program with each consultation.

Our fitness staff is also available to consult with you by appointment to determine the best combination of activities to pursue at the Kennebec Valley YMCA depending on your goals and your health history. Your Y offers two pools and more than 70 FREE group exercise classes each week. This can be overwhelming at first, and we would like to spend some time with you to help you sort out what would be best for you and your schedule. Please see our friendly staff at the Membership Services Desk, or call (207) 622-9622 to schedule an appointment today!


Why do I need a personal trainer?

What is remote training? Just like when you work with a personal trainer in the gym, remote training is a great opportunity to receive one-on-one attention from a qualified fitness professional. You will have a 30 or 55 minute video call with your trainer where he or she will be able to demonstrate exercises, evaluate your exercise form, and offer corrections, advice, and motivation.
Our trainers are able to implement strategies that help you get the most efficient and effective workouts from the safety of your own home. Our trainers can even come up with substitutions for equipment you might use in the gym, but don't have at home. Let them do the problem-solving for you, so you can focus on all the other important things in your life - like suddenly homeschooling your children or figuring out how to get your work done from home.

During your session your trainer will take you through a health and lifestyle questionnaire and movement assessments to give you personalized solutions to help you meet your health and wellness goals. We are currently offering these sessions in person at our Augusta or Manchester locations as well as via Zoom.
