Start your fitness journey or stay active this fall at the JCC. There are so many classes and programs to choose from to help members stay on track and reach their goals.

Here’s a highlight of the JCC’s fitness offerings:

Personal Training

The JCC’s personal trainers work to design unique workout plans that are tailored to the needs and goals of each client. Those interested in personal training can choose 30- or 60-minute one-on-one sessions, or sign up for group sessions. Personal training offerings now also include Pilates reformer sessions — a mind body exercise program that develops core strength, posture, and mobility.
