A supportive place for Rhashida's family

30 August 2013


Rhashida, wife, mother, homeschool teacher, family manager, and now role model of health and fitness for her children, feels all of her family’s needs are met with the Y—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Visits to the Y are part of the family’s daily schedule, and since May, she and Scott have collectively lost 45 pounds. Upon arrival, Rhashida and Scott check the children into the Interactive Zone and Stay & Play, then warm up together. Recently their oldest daughter has been joining them in the wellness center. Scott then goes to the weight room, while Rhashida prefers resistance training. But when the workout is complete, the whole family gathers for their favorite activity—basketball in the gym! They are now participating in Y-Change Family with swim lessons next on the agenda.
According to Rhashida, “When you choose the Y, you’re choosing to be part of an even bigger family. And what better way to get healthy than with your family?”
