Teen Fitness and Membership OpportunitiesThe Lincoln YMCA has programs developed for teens to help them incorporate fitness into their everyday lives. The Cooper YMCA has added a youth gym. All three of the branches have a "quick fit" studio which allows teens a time to get a good introduction to working out, as well as offer Youth Weight training classes to help get teens started with their future workouts by teaching them the correct mechanics, weight room etiquette, safe technique, and how to create a balanced workout routine.
The Lincoln Y also offers a youth membership just for kids under age 18. Its a perfect way to enjoy the pool, stay in shape, and train during the off season for your favorite sport!
