My family has a history of heart problems. With that concern in mind, I became a charter member when the local YMCA opened. I spend from 1 to 4 hours a day at the Y. I enjoy the variety of Group Exercise classes and the benefits I have experienced. I am happy to say that my heart is much stronger, joint mobility has increased and joint pain has decreased! Having been a cheerleader and very active in my youth, I really missed being fit and having so much energy! It feels great to have improved stamina and move more freely! As I age, I'm so glad the YMCA opened here and my joints thank you!
