Her YMCA experience began in the gymnastics program and has grown since then. As a kid, Stettler loved the atmosphere and the community of the YMCA.

A few months ago, she relocated to Arizona for work and needed to find a place to continue her fitness routine. Although she tried other gyms, Stettler ended up right back where she felt at home: the YMCA.

Since becoming a member of our community at the Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Family Y, she has made friends in the morning crowd and has even taken up the cycling class. While the classes and equipment are great, that is not what keeps her coming back.

“Everyone is great. They’re nice; they’re welcoming,” Stettler says. “I feel like my day doesn’t really get started unless I work out.”

Thank you, Ashley! We’re excited to have you as our Member of the Month.
