Finding balance at the Y

30 August 2012

Nicole has been a YMCA member for five years. In that time, she has come to rely on the people and services at the Y. Five children between the ages of 1 and 7 require a nurturing environment, and that’s what the Y can provide for her and her family. She told us, “It’s like an extended family. Everyone here knows and loves my kids.”

While the children have fun with in Stay & Play, the Interactive Zone and HYPE (a PE class geared toward homeschoolers), Nicole enjoys some time to herself in high-intensity group exercise classes like Boot Camp and Tabata. The whole family also takes advantage of time spent together having fun in the pools. But mom and dad are also big fans of the Y’s complimentary babysitting during Parents Night Out!

We wanted to share Nicole’s story, because it’s just one of the ways that the Y is helping our community grow stronger, by giving families a place to belong and ways to live healthy. If you haven’t already become a part of the Y, click here to learn more about membership.
