Our Center

I miss the YMCA because ever since starting my journey back in August 2016. I initially went there to try lose some weight since I’ve been overweight from the age of 15. I dropped 80 lbs within the first 1.5 years just working out on the machines and walking outside on the trail every day. I fell in love with exercising and thought I would try a group class, even though I didn’t know what to expect I tried a class and the instructor made me feel welcome and I kept going back and figured I would try a different group class, and eventually fell in love with taking all the group classes and getting in the best shape of my life. I signed up for personal training to try and build some muscle and was able to get stronger as well. I finally decided to payback the Y for changing me, and I now work at my local YMCA, and have also signed up for Les Mills BodyAttack training as it’s my favorite exercise class, and I would live to help others achieve the success that I have received.
