Health & Well-being

At Emilson, we're dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our kids and teens.  Every generation has the opportunity to exercise at the Y and build a healthy, active lifestyle together.  In addition to our sports and aquatic programs, we offer youth fitness programs for children ages 7 to 12 years. These programs teach youth and teens safe strength training and exercise techniques.

Strength & Cardiovascular Training

This free program for kids ages 7 to 12 teaches how to safely and properly use exercise equipment, including the treadmill, bike, and rower, as well as specific pieces of strength equipment.  At the end of the five-session program, they are allowed to work out independently at the Y.  The Health & Well-being Center is not a supervised area. Even when they are fully-trained, youth ages 7-9 need a parent to accompany them while they use the equipment.

Youth strength training appointments are free and are offered weeknights and weekends.  For more information and/or to get your youth started in this popular program, please attend one of our Youth Strength & Cardio Training Orientations held every:
