Personal Training

Outdoor Personal Training

Outdoor Personal Training is the opportunity to work with a Certified YMCA Personal Trainer while maintaining social distancing. You’ll receive expert guidance through coaching and instruction as your Personal Trainer works with you to build your own customized exercise routine. 

Indoor Personal Training is now available at Presidio, Stonestown, Marin, Peninsula and Chinatown*. Click here to learn more.
*Chinatown PT has limited hours 


In order to participate in Outdoor Personal Training and/or Pilates, you need to be an active Y of San Francisco facility member. You will also need to purchase a Personal Training or Pilates package.  

Semi-Private sessions are two clients working with one of our Certified Trainers. For Semi-Private sessions, you will find your own fellow participant who is also an active facility member. The recommendation for semi-private clients are to have similar goals, training capacity, and availability.  

How It Works

You’ll connect with a  Master Trainer for a free 20-minute Virtual Intake Session to discuss your exercise history and abilities, and review outdoor personal training process for ongoing sessions.  

The Master Trainer will pair you with one of our Certified Personal Trainers for on-going training sessions that works with your availability.

Participant Testimony

I am delighted at the smooth transition to virtual personal training! Susie’s skill and enthusiasm come across readily in a virtual environment, and I feel just as challenged and rewarded as I did previously in a gym setting. I enjoy the one-on-one attention to detail and feel the training is really tailored to what I need on any given day.

Bravo to the Y for making this possible. I am a convert!
