Getting Active as a Family with the Y

26 April 2013


Stacy was looking for a way to get active with her three young daughters. The family had been members of the Y for some time, but it wasn’t until they learned of the Y-Change Family program that they stepped up their involvement. In the beginning, they weren’t sure they could walk a mile together, but they are now jogging on the treadmills, doing resistance training on the FitQuest circuit and continually looking for ways to fit more exercise into their busy lives. When Stacy wants to add to her individual workout routine, the girls go to the Interactive Zone and burn off more energy.

With the help of their Y-Change coach, Christine, they have learned of new ways to get active together, make healthy choices in the planning of meals, and they even all help with the grocery shopping. The family’s experience with the Y has not just been a win-win situation - it’s been a win-win-win-win!
