Health & Wellness
Our Y-Weight Challenge is a 12 week program where you work out three times per week with a personal trainer in a small group training format of 4-5 people per group. Weekly weigh-ins and small group size give a person support to begin their weight loss goals. The next 12 Y-Weight Challenge will begin June 7 and go through both Summer 1 and 2 session. This allows teachers an opportunity to finish school and participate in the program.
Summer Shape Up
Our Summer Shape Up program will be held in the Summer session for 6 weeks, June 3 - July 14th. It is called Summer Shape Up because the program will help prepare you for summer activities. If your goal is to

The Fitness Center
If you are looking for a total body work out, a health and wellness consultation, or a high energy cardio kick class, you’ve come to the right place! The Carondelet Park Rec Complex offers many classes and programs to enhance muscle strength, endurance and flexibility. There are also programs for those who are new to working out. The fitness center features Precor cardiovascular equipment with integrated Cardio Theatre, Precor C-Line strength equipment and a wide array of free weights and benches.
Health and Wellness Consultation
If you are new to the Carondelet Park Rec Complex or just new to working out this is your FIRST STOP. Set up an appointment with one of our Nationally Certified Personal Trainers to discuss your goals and determine a program that best fits your needs. Our staff can also provide an equipment orientation. Call 314-768-9622 or stop by the service center or fitness center desk to book your appointment today.
Group Personal Training
Statistics have proven that working out in a group produces longer lasting results than working out on your own. Sessions are designed to give you a high calorie burning workout based on all the movements you learned in Fundamentals Group Training or Y Weight. Experience the motivation of other people with similar goals using each other to accomplish workouts never thought possible. Our Group PT classes are taught by a nationally certified personal trainer and are designed to get you results.
Can't find a Group PT class on our Personal Training Schedule at a convenient time for you? We can do a Group PT class any time you want. Call Paula, our Health and Wellness Coordinator at 314-685-3800 x225 for more information regarding on demand classes.
Striving for optimal health can be a full time job. Our personal training programs take the guesswork out of health and fitness. Personalized 60 minute fitness sessions with a nationally certified trainer are a safe and effective way to help you reach your goals. This program encompasses cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, and stretching to increase flexibility, strength, and overall health in an individualized goal-oriented program. Since we feel a fitness program should be built on a strong foundation, all of our personal training programs include a health and wellness consultation.
