Free Health Assessments for New Members
There are many wellness options at YMCA facilities; during the series of SMART Start meetings,
a wellness expert will acquaint a new member with these options, including the various group exercise classes,
the cardio, weight rooms, pool, and other available amenities. The new member will also be introduced to
YMCA staff and members. The wellness expert discusses the new member’s wellness and fitness goals and
uses this information to recommend appropriate facility options.
SMART Start- Helping you get the results you want!
SMART Start appointments are designed to:
• help new members become better acquainted with the YMCA facility
• allow new members to meet individually with a wellness expert in order
to set wellness goals.
SMART Start is a free consultation offered to all new members that starts with a goal-setting conversation
and ends with a plan to integrate members into the YMCA. SMART Start helps begin each member on their YMCA journey.
Stop by the Service Desk at the Ottawa YMCA to sign up for your free SMART Start assessment.
