Since 1857, the YMCA started adding “physical work” to its programs in the belief that “bodily health” is intimately connected with mental and spiritual activity and development. The Akron Area YMCA offers the latest and greatest in fitness, from swimming, walking, running, and sports to one-on-one training, power cycling and Tech Gym.

Receive assistance from a personal trainer who will design an exercise program tailored specifically toward achieving your individual goals. Teenagers will learn the safe and effective way to use fitness equipment. Boys and girls of any skill and ability level are encouraged to participate.

The Personal Fitness Program is designed for members who are new to exercise or for those having a difficult time committing to exercise. Participants make a 30-day commitment to exercise a minimum of 3 days per week using a program set up by a fitness trainer.

YMCA Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
