Build More Than Muscle

Program Guide Cover Spring 1 2017 WebBeing healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.

The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself or your child to learn a new skill or how to swim.  We foster connections with friends through our wellness programs. We bring your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.

At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Learn more about the Y Programs in our Spring I 2017 Program Guide.  The Spring 1 Session begins on April 24 and runs through June 18. Program Registration starts on Monday, April 3 for Members; on Monday, April 10 for Community. Register at the Y in person or by calling; on-line via the web or our mobile app.
