Healthy Living

Health & Wellness programs offer opportunities for friendship and community, a sense of well-being, self-confidence and improved mental abilities, not to mention the obvious health benefits of healthy heart, lungs, bones, and muscles. At the Ohio Valley YMCA you can focus on Healthy Living by joining a group fitness class, working with a personal trainer, or learning how to exercise on your own with proper form.

Wellness Center Orientation

Joining a gym or starting a new health and fitness journey can be intimidating, but it doesn't have to be! Wellness Center orientations provide members an opportunity for a hands on education on how to operate cardio and strength training equipment properly and safely. 


Teen Strength Certification

Teen Strength Certification is designed to introduce YMCA members ages 12 to 15 to basic strength training principles and techniques. Teen Strength Certification must be successfully completed before teen members are allowed to utilize the YMCA Wellness Center. Once the certifications completed, a guardian must accompany the teen member while they use the Wellness Center. Teen Strength Certified members are subject to restricted hours for Wellness Center use.
