The instructors are genuinely interested in providing effective, safe classes, and make a point of getting to know the participants.
My husband and I have been members of a Y for virtually all of our adult lives, for the past ten years in Warsaw.
I participate in Step Challenge and Body Sculpt classes, as well as using the fitness center. When scheduling conflicts arise and I have to skip the Y, I really do miss it! I started a weight loss journey last summer, and the Y has been an important part of my success. Besides being a great place to burn calories, I have gotten a lot of encouragement and support.
In addition to doing my own thing, my children have sampled a lot of the youth offerings over the years: soccer, t-ball, flag football, ballet, and gymnastics to name a few. Now they are old enough to use the fitness center as well. My family and I also helped with the Togetherhood project at the new homeless shelter, and look forward to joining in more projects as they come up.
One of the best things about Warsaw is that even as it grows, it maintains the good qualities of a small town. The new Y is a great example of this. It is amazing and feels huge, but is still a good place to run into people I know, make new friends, and catch up on community news. We are blessed as a community of this size to have a facility of this caliber. Besides the facilities themselves, the instructors are genuinely interested in providing effective, safe classes, and make a point of getting to know the participants.
I can honestly say I have never walked out of the Y after class and felt like I wasted my time! And as much as I enjoy the Y, I especially enjoy the feeling of walking out of the Y, sweaty, tired, and DONE!
