Fitness Orientations

The YMCA of Niagara offers complementary orientations to allow members to get the most from their YMCA membership. These orientations are set up to help members achieve their health and fitness goals. Fitness Coaches will discuss goals and interests with a member and connect them to the YMCA programs and services that will work for them. Orientations are customized based on member’s interests and goals. Fitness orientations are a bridge to YMCA programs and services.  Speak to the membership desk for more information, or to book an orientation.

Contact us to book your orientation or visit the Membership Desk at your local YMCA branch. Explore some of our program offerings below:
