wellness 101 

To better serve you, the Akron Area YMCA and Summa Sports Medicine are working together to provide a 18-session, medically based, comprehensive level of expertise and wellness to members with Licensed Athletic Trainers [AT] who are available to you in the Y Fitness/Wellness Centers. This program was developed by Summa Health's athletic trainers and can be conducted by a fitness/wellness coach. 

This free program is designed with you in mind. Its goal is to help you become and stay healthy and active.

This program starts with an assessment to determine your readiness for exercise. 

The Wellness Assessment includes:

  • Consent to Exercise
  • Lifestyle Goals Questionnaire
  • Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire
  • Fitness Assessment
  •          Blood Pressure
  •          Body Fat%/Body Mass Index
  •          Weight & Height

The initial goal is for you to conclude 18 visits/workouts sessions and meet with your wellness coach two-four times to assess your exercise plan. 

After 18 visits, you will be rewarded with a special "I Got It Done With Wellness 101" gift.  See a wellness coach to set up your appointment.
