I would hope that since the Y is closed because of COVID19 and is still collecting membership dues, that it would continue to pay its staff through this shutdown.

Sometimes the biggest barrier at the gym is not knowing what to do when you walk in the door. This is one of the most impactful benefits of your Y membership; when you come to a group fitness class, knowledgable instructors do all the planning while you follow along. Personal training amplifies that benefit as your trainer plans a workout not just for a group of people, but specifically for you, helping you make progress to reach your goals.

If you're working out on your own, walk into the Y with a plan for your workout that day. Don't have a plan today? Try this Total Body 45-minute workout from Paige, a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor from our Downtown Y. Remember, modify each movement to your own fitness level and abilities when needed, but always push yourself for progress!


Set 1: Repeat 4x
5 - Jump Squats
10 - Thrusters
5 - Burpees
10 - Front Lunges w/ Bicep Curl each leg
50 - Speed Skaters

Set 2: Repeat 4x
5 - Push-ups
10 - Push Press
5 - Bear Crawls
10 - Single Arm Overhead Press
50 - Seal Jacks

Set 3: Repeat 3x
5 Leg Raises
10 Superman's
5 Fire Hydrants each leg
10 Single leg glute bridges (each leg)
50 Bicycle crunches

A little Friday Focus tip from our very own TC! Plus a reminder that you can order healthy, prepared, properly-portioned meals from our friends at Clean Eatz to support you in your fitness journey. You can even pick up your weekly meals every Monday right here at our Tennova Family YMCA!

"MINDSET: Training the body is one of the smallest aspects of any type of training, because a strong body doesn’t exist without a strong mind! If you tell yourself you are tired, or that something is too hard, you’ll be right 100% of the time. But if you tell yourself that you’re strong, you can do it, and that you’re powerful, then your chances for success increase dramatically.

It might take time, but stay focused & stay committed. Remember, if you’ve tried everything, then you haven’t tried consistency!"

- T.C. Willis, Personal Trainer, Tennova Family Y

Our kid classes take place on Monday and Thursday at 4:15 P.M, our teen classes take place Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 5:00 P.M, and our Ultimate Fit classes for adults are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 6:00 P.M and Saturday at 9:00 A.M.

Today’s Y Workout Tip comes from Gus, a certified personal trainer from our .

“Make sure that for every exercise you do, you have GREAT range of motion. Let your targeted muscle get a full stretch as well as a good contraction. With proper range of motion and an adequate set and rep range, these factors will help you stimulate growth in the desired muscle group. If you cannot perform a full range of motion, lower the weight and try again. DO NOT EGO LIFT, as ego lifting can get you hurt, and it will not allow you to get a full range of motion.”

To work with Gus or another personal trainer at the Y, visit ymcaknoxville.org/pt. Our trainers are here to plan tailored workouts just for you, motivate you along the way, protect you from injury, and help you see results toward your fitness goals.

Our Y Members: Nolan 06/13/2023

Nolan had both hips and both knees replaced over a 50-week period. For his mobility, he was encouraged to come to the Y. In just five months, he's lost 21 pounds of body fat and gained 4 pounds of muscle. More than that, he's found a community of support.

It’s Instructor Appreciation week! Come show some love to your favorite instructors who lead our large variety of group exercise classes. Here are just a few out of your 36 Amazing Instructors!!


Weekly Y Tip comes from Lori, a certified personal trainer at our Tennova Family Y: Consistency is Key to Success!

"Being consistent means to keep doing what you planned to do regularly. Consistent workouts and healthy food choices will pay off! Scheduling workouts at the same day and time will help establish a routine. Here are other some tips to stay consistent:

1. Set A Clear Goal: Be specific. Instead of having the goal, "I will exercise more," plan a specific goal to exercise three days a week for one hour to lower your blood pressure and have more energy.
2. Make A Commitment: That means showing up even when you don’t feel like it. Commit to working out for thirty days.
3. Be Accountable: Hire a trainer or get a buddy who will hold you accountable.
4. Put Your Workouts On Your Calendar: What isn’t scheduled often doesn’t get done.
5. Be Patient: Be patient with the process. Results take time and effort. Sometimes we expect results overnight.

Exercise CAN become a lifestyle and result in a healthier, more fit you!" - Lori

To work with Lori or another certified personal trainer at the Y, visit ymcaknoxville.org/pt. Our trainers are here to help you reach your goals!


One of the benefits of having a membership at the YMCA is also having a discount for our massages. Next time you’re at our location talk to the membership desk about spa info and they can give you a pamphlet with prices or as well for info call (865) 922-9622. Also as well even if you’re a nonmember you too can get a massage set up.


Please enjoy a safe holiday weekend with your friends and family!

Your Y Wellness Tip plus a Bonus Workout today come from Gina S. from our Pilot Family Y: Learn to Love Exercise.

Then, swipe to see this week's menu from our friends at Clean Eatz, so you can pair your healthy habits and Y workout routine with some good fuel!

"Learn to Love Exercise:
How can you learn to love exercise? Become an intrinsic exerciser!

Just like anything else we do, we must find meaning and value in it. When you shift your focus from external outcomes (such as exercising only to lose weight) and focus on positive internal experiences, you will begin to love exercise for its own sake! Here are a few tips on how to become an intrinsic exerciser:

- Find personal meaning in it. Use exercise to explore who you are - internally articulate why you are working out and what you hope to get from it.
- Mastery – monitor improvements of your performance. Challenge yourself and set personal goals, like lifting five more pounds or running a little faster or farther, etc.
- Find your flow or 'the zone.' Flow is all about staying in the moment. It’s not achieving an end point that’s important; it’s the process of achieving.

When you start working from the inside out and focus on the inner rewards of the activity itself, you will find yourself going to the gym because you want to, not because you have to.

Bonus Workout:

Here is one of my favorite workouts because I LOVE running and strength training; it’s challenging, and it can be used as a benchmark to set achievement goals.

Run 1 mile, then perform 20 rounds of:

5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats

Then, run 1 mile."


Congratulations to Rachel one of our Fitness Staff Employees for being apart of the class of 2023 at Halls High School!! We are proud of you and appreciate your hard work around the facility.
