Welcome to the Y!
Congrats! You've signed up your membership and you're ready to get back in the gym...so the question is "Now What?"
Join us at our new monthly seminar series called "You're Here Now What". Lead by one of the YMCA's certified Personal Trainers, this hour-long seminar will cover topics that will help you get accustomed, or re-accustomed, to a gym setting and to a new workout routine. We hope to answer some of your "Why?" questions (Why Strength Training?) and "How Often?" questions (How often should I do cardio?) as well as help you make a plan to reaching your health and wellness goals.
March's seminar is lead by Jen -
Jen's Bio:My husband Brad and I have two children, Slade and Shayley. I love being his wife and their mom! I was born and raised in Wilmington. My passion is people! It is a privilege for me to part of a person's personal health journey. Helping people achieve their fitness goals, whether it be for health benefits or simply to be able to do their activities of daily living, is my personal goal as an instructor and trainer. I started working for the Y when the Express Y opened in August, 2015. I love the warm and welcoming atmosphere at the Y and I am proud to be part of this organization. In my personal training career, so far, I have primarily worked with the aging population to help with building strength, endurance, dealing with rheumatoid arthritis, De Quervain's contracture, and maintaining their ability to perform activities of daily living. As a trainer and instructor, it is a privilege to work with anyone who needs encouragement and motivation to start, continue, or maintain their health and fitness goals. Education & Certifications:
