Fitness orientations are designed to help new members become familiar with the fitness facilities and equipment at the facility. The orientation typically includes a tour of the fitness areas and an introduction to the various types of equipment, such as treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight machines. During the orientation, a staff member or coach may provide instruction on how to use the equipment safely and effectively and may offer tips and guidance on developing a fitness plan. Fitness orientations are typically provided to new members to help them get started on their fitness journey and to ensure that they feel comfortable and confident using the Y's facilities.
