Youth Strength & Cardio Orientation

The Y’s goal is to create an atmosphere in which youth feel safe and confident while using our various fitness areas.

In order to achieve this, the Brainerd Family YMCA conducts a YOUTH STRENGTH & CARDIO ORIENTATION to instill confidence and understanding in youth as they strive to live an active and healthy life. These orientations are meant to teach kids safety, etiquette, and basic fitness guidelines, giving youth a sense of knowledge and belonging while using the YMCA fitness areas.

Once complete, participants age 7-9 may use the treadmills or indoor cycles with parent supervision and ages 10-12 may use Hammer Strength adjustable weight equipment and cardio machines independently.  Those who have completed the training will receive a colored wrist band to wear while working out.  

FREE for members / $25 for non-members
