He was inspired to join by his 91-year-old aunt and 90-year-old uncle who are longtime members of the Y.

Victor enjoys the Jump Start room because it is a safe space where he feels comfortable to do his workouts.
His No. 1 fitness goal is prevention and said: “I am 71-year-old and since I have been working out at the Y, I have the energy of a 50-year-old!”

He also said, “It is not how long you live it is how you feel while you are living.”

When asked what makes the Y different, Victor said, “The people; everyone is friendly, encouraging and welcoming. It feels like you are at home.”

Victor has made several great friends at the Y and knows the social aspect contributes to his feelings of well-being.
