The Training Center

The Darien YMCA invites you to visit our Training Center, an expansive and open space on our lower level dedicated to the serious fitness fanatic, personal training, and functional training modalities. Of course, all are welcome! This area features traditional weight equipment such as squat racks, cable machines, bench presses, dumbbells up to 100lbs, plus pre-set barbells. In addition, we have all the old-school tools of trade, like kettlebells, (from 10lbs to 100lbs), battle ropes, medicine balls, specialized cardio pieces and so much more – all the equipment you need to get the best workout possible.

In order for everyone to thoroughly enjoy the Training Center, we ask for all of our members to be courteous to others and to follow these basic guidelines:

Training Center Etiquette

  • Thank you for leaving cell phone conversations outside the Training Center.
  • Your comfort is important. Please wear workout clothing that covers your chest and back.
  • Please wear closed-toed, athletic shoes with non-marking soles.
  • Personal items must be placed in designated areas.
  • This is a spill-safe zone. Please use water bottles made of non-breakable material.
  • Your health matters. Please wipe off equipment after each use. Equipment wipes are available.
  • Your safety matters. Ask for a spot when necessary and remember to put all weights away after use.
  • Please be mindful of others waiting by not idling on your machine in between sets.
  • We love a clean facility. Please refrain from using CHALK in the training center.

Whether you’d like a tour of our fitness facilities, have questions about our group fitness classes, or are interested in working with a personal trainer, we’re here to help!
