We understand it can be intimidating to begin a new exercise program and make healthy lifestyle changes. We are there with the support, guidance and encouragement you need to make the leap. Our Health Coaches are certified personal trainers who will help you get connected and stay engaged to help you achieve your wellness goals.

During your first personal training session, your trainer will conduct a fitness assessment and then design an exercise program with your specific abilities and goals in mind.

Your trainer will help you perform the exercises correctly, safely and efficiently. During each subsequent session, your progress will be monitored and changes will be made to maximize the effectiveness of your program.



Because we want you to be successful in safely meeting your fitness goals the Berwick Area YMCA takes staff training and certifications very seriously. All YMCA fitness staff have undergone extensive training for the fitness areas in which they work. These qualified staff are available to assist you with the information and programs you need to accomplish your fitness goals.

YMCA Personal and Group Exercise Trainers are certified through national YMCA programs. All have current CPR, First Aid and AED certification for the highest degree of safety.


"Working with my personal trainer has had such a positive impact upon my life, both physically and mentally. The built-in accountability factor is an obvious plus, but there are many others. Mindful use of time and practicing intelligent nutritional choices seem to become automatic.
My Trainer provides me with challenges, yet realizes my limitations. This brings a sense of accomplishment, not failure, and encourages me along our journey. There are no negative aspects for me and I plan to stay with our (training) plan forever. Fortunate to have this opportunity, I would recommend it to anyone that values their overall health. Never would you regret this positive life-altering and affirming decision." -Mary, May 2018
