Trainers will work with participants to assess their ability and offer modification for exercises when needed, as well as show great ways to exercise at home. Participants must be mobile and able to exercise without assistance (including getting up and down off the ground). Aquatic sessions are available at other branches for those with limited mobility.

The Stokes Family YMCA will host six sessions for 25 people each on Mondays at 10:30 a.m. or 7:15 p.m., Wednesdays at 7 p.m., Thursdays at 6 a.m. or 7:15 p.m., or Saturdays at 8:30 a.m.

“TNT is a program that helps people transform themselves inside and out. At the Y, we can provide the support and motivation you need to become a healthier you,” shared Tiffany Boyles, wellness director of the Stokes Family YMCA. “We are committed to improving our community’s health and well-being. This program is just one of the ways we are working to make health accessible to all.”
