As a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y seeks to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has an opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. If you haven't visited the Y yet, or if you're ready to re-start on a journey toward health, come visit the Y on January 6th at their Open House. The Open House is free and open to everyone from 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Tours will be going on all day. New members joining that day will get an opportunity to enter to win a free 6 month membership. They'll also have the opportunity to earn back their joiner's fee by coming in 2 times a week for 12 weeks in a row. The first 25 new members will be gifted with a "Welcome to the Y" duffle bag, water bottle, lock and earbuds. New members have access to an adult fitness orientation and an Engagement Coach if they need help getting started.
There will also be a sampler of our group exercise classes so that current Y members and potential members can see what will be offered in the Winter session that starts January 8. They'll be offering 4 hours of cycling from 7:30 a.m.-11:15 a.m.- you don't have to bike that whole time! And they will offer group exercise classes starting with PiYo 8:30-9:15 a.m., CoreBar 9:30-10:00 a.m., Zumba Strong 10:15-10:45 a.m., Zumba 11:00-11:45 a.m. and Piloxing 12:00-12:45 p.m. See www.kcymca.org for class descriptions.
Mentally (the Y) has impacted me, because I have seen people who have disabilities. . . that still go into the YMCA with a positive attitude. Which just goes to prove that with will-power you can excel in anything, even with slight setbacks.
