A Fitness Program to Become Your Healthiest Self!

Berkeley, Oakland, and Richmond Parkway branches provide a fitness coaching program with our app, Y Training ID. The Y Training ID program and app are free and included with your membership!

The ID stands for individual design, and that's exactly what we'll do together.

Berkeley members can schedule their consultation appointment using the form at the bottom of the page. Oakland and Richmond Parkway members should email Jocelyn Leche at jleche@ymcaeastbay.org to get started.

Here's how it works:

STEP 1: Getting Started

Use the tool at the bottom of this page to sign up for a 90 minute initial consultation with one of our fitness coaches to discuss your goals and fitness habits. In this session your coach will also walk you through a few different assessments:

Body Assessment: the in-body assessment is a non-invasive body composition test that tells us about your body fat percentage, muscle symmetry, hydration, efficiency of your metabolism and more!

Move Assessment: in our movement assessment, you'll do a back scratch, squat, lunge, and plank, to understand strength, mobility, symmetry and balance.

Work Assessment: finally, we will have you perform a work test on either our Rogue Echo Bike or Rower to assess your endurance and aerobic capacity.

STEP 2: Design Your Plan

Using the results from your assessment, your coach will build you a fitness program that will be accessible through our new Y Training ID app!

All strength workouts will include our 6 foundational movement patterns: the squat, lunge, hinge, push, pull and core. Your coach will chose different variations of these movement patterns based on what they observed in your assessment.

Your coach will discuss daily activity levels, strength training, cardio, and more to help you develop a well-rounded fitness regimen and become the healthiest you! They can even discuss other Y programs that may fit your goals, such as group exercise classes or personal training.

Your individual workouts will be available to you on your phone, so whenever you visit the Y, you'll have your workout in hand, complete with videos and instructions. Log your workouts to track progress and stay accountable with the fitness staff here at the Y!

STEP 3: Keep Up the Good Work!

After your initial fitness coach consultation, members have access to three one-on-one follow-up appointments per year. Work with your fitness coach to reevaluate your fitness level and set new achievable goals throughout the year!
