What is Smart Start

Smart Start is a series of three personalized appointments, that are 30 to 60 minutes long, and designed to support you in pursuit of your health and wellness goals. 

A Health & Wellness staff member will meet with you to discuss your needs, goals, and interests and, together, you will develop a plan for success.

What it's NOT

Your appointments are not a series of cookie-cutter workouts or a one-size-fits-all program; it is customized to meet your needs. It is not Personal Training.

Who should attend?

Everyone! Whether you’re new to exercise, have dabbled in it your whole life, or are comfortable in your regular program, we will help you make the most of your Y membership. The Smart Start experience is an opportunity for us to work together to create your personalized road map for success. 

Why it's important

Members who attend their first Smart Start appointment within the first two weeks of joining the Y are six times more likely to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. Let’s ensure you’re one of them!
