Is your tween ready to hit the weights and exercise equipment? Then Tween Orientation is for your them!
Tween Orientation allows 11– to 12-year-olds early entrance to designated weight room and strength line equipment labeled tween friendly. All it takes is setting up an orientation time with one of our certified staff members and passing a test following the orientation.
The “Tween” Fitness Program teaches proper use of fitness equipment, etiquette in the cardio center and the importance of cardio exercise. Once tweens have completed orientation, they must pass a test to be granted early entrance. They can then use equipment with a "Tween Friendly" label during the hours on the Tween Fitness Schedule while parents are on Joplin Family YMCA premises.
Each tween must check-in at the front desk to receive a tween identification badge.
For more information or to set up an appointment with a certified staff member, please call our Fitness and Aquatics Director at 417 781 YMCA.
Tween equipment is available.
