At each of YMCA of East Tennessee’s five locations, guests can hop onto cardio and weight equipment, plunge into a pool, or join group exercise classes such as Zumba, spin, and Pilates. All locations also have an ActivTrax kiosk, where members can log in to print out a customized and detailed workout plan. After the workout, they can return to the kiosk to log what they accomplished, and the program will customize their next workout accordingly. The program treats bodies to a variety of workouts, and users can also log in on their own computers for a nutritious meal plan tailored to their preferences.<p>
YMCA of East Tennessee
YMCA of East Tennessee holds fast to its three-fold mission: to encourage healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility. Each of their five locations brims with cardio and weight equipment, as well as digital ActivTrax kiosks, which print out customized workout plans based on each guests' information. Instructors lead group fitness classes for adults and stacks of trench-coat-clad babies disguised as adults, offering sessions that range from kickboxing to water aerobics. In addition to specialized sessions for seniors, they also lead sports programs for kids, such as swimming, basketball, and karate.
The folks at YMCA of East Tennessee offer memberships to military families and host programs for kids who have dropped out of school or who have been suspended. Their scholarship program helps families send their kids to the YMCA's fun, safe, character-developing programs no matter their financial circumstances.
