What is EGYM?

The new app will work seamlessly with our new EGYM Equipment located at our Waukee and Walnut Creek locations.

EGYM is a personalized, full-body strength training experience that uses the latest RFID technology to make working out fun, fast and effective for everyone. In Central Iowa, it’s available exclusively for YMCA members as part of your membership.

BioAge is a comprehensive fitness and health indicator that combines a wide range of measurements into an easy-to-understand age that can be compared to your physical age.

Your BioAge can be determined through various measurements within each analysis category listed above. To calculate your BioAge, this measurement data can be entered in manually or automatically though our EGYM equipment offered at Waukee and Walnut Creek Branches. Please setup an onboarding appointment with one of our trained Wellness Coaches to help guide you through this process. Make an appointment today.
