Well...we finally did it. My family joined the YMCA and i gotta tell ya, WE LOVE IT! My wife and i decided that working out at home, just wasn't cutting it. We were worried though about joining a club, intimidated by "Muscle Heads" and then not using it. We did some research and realized quickly that The Y was our best option. Our youngest children Danny & Lauren are still at home. What would we do with them while were at the gym working out? Solution...AGAIN The Y.
While Tammy & i are workin out on some of the best equipment in the industry, the kids just LOVE swimming in the pool, playing in the gym AND they're absolutely thrilled about the idea of going to Summer Camp, taking arts & crafts classes, karate, I couldn't possibly list all the things the kids can be involved in at The Y. Once you're a member, You get to use ANY YMCA facility. Tammy & I just spent 5 days at Country USA in Oshkosh and were allowed to use the Y there to shower & sit in the hot tub. WONDERFUL!
Even cooler, Tammy & i realized right from the get go, there is no intimidation factor. Not only is the entire staff extremely helpful with getting us to get to know the facility, equipment, etc...but the members are just as helpful! We're getting to know more people everytime we go in, which is just about every day.
Trust me, this is no sales pitch. If you're looking to join a gym, especially if you have kids, there's no better facility than your YMCA. The money you'll spend on a membership, truly is an incredible investment in your family's health, recreation, family time, not to mention...FUN!
I hope we see YOU at The YMCA.
