Y Member Spotlight: Aaron Monte

You’ll find Aaron out swimming laps every morning or participating in Aqua Fitness classes throughout the summer. Aaron found a love for swimming and it’s allowed him to lose weight and stay healthy at 76 years young! He credits the YMCA for this transformation and will tell you of the days when he was able to do only one lap before getting winded. Since then, he has swam over thousands of miles in our pool and completes over 33 laps per day. His consistency and happy go-lucky attitude is fun to watch and he’s a ray of sunshine even on a bright AZ day. When he’s not swimming it up in our pool, Aaron likes to watch basketball and cheer on his Warriors. He also likes traveling back to Hawaii to visit family and friends. We are grateful to see Aaron daily at our Y.
