Dear Abby

Why isn't the Training Studio included in my monthly dues? What is that room all about?


Dear Abby, I just recently joined the Y and have been hearing a lot of people talk about the new Training Studio. What exactly is the Training Studio? Is this included in my membership fee? How are these classes different than the group exercise classes that you offer? Thanks for your help! Susan

Hi Susan –

So glad you asked about our new Training Studio. As you have noticed, there has been a lot of hype around this new state-of-the-art training facility but there is still some confusion as to how a member actually gets to train in the studio.

First, you must be a member of the Y in order to use the Training Studio. This studio is a member enhancement and we want our members to be the ones experiencing the classes first and foremost.

Second, the Training Studio is an additional fee per month. Pricing can vary depending on the frequency of the class and the length of time. For example, we offer a Morning Grind class focusing on Full Body Circuit Training that meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 6:00a-6:45a for $80 per month and also on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00a-6:30a for $40 per month. The difference in the price is because the M, W, F class meets 3x per week for 45 minutes while the Tu, Th class meets 2x per week for 30 minutes. The MOST you’ll pay per month for a Training Studio class is $80 per month. In fact, the average price per class is $6.11!

All of the Training Studio classes are led by Certified Personal Trainers utilizing their skill sets to come up with the most effective workout during your time in the class. There is a maximum capacity for the classes (which is around 10 people per class), so you’ll be able to get more one-on-one with the trainer and a reserved spot in the class.

We’re offering 9 different classes focusing on various areas of the body. There’s really a class for everyone. Busy parent, older adult, working professional, and youth - we’ve got just the class.

If you’re still curious, we are doing FREE demonstrations now until October 31st. Classes officially begin November 1st.

Happy Training!
