Some of our winners included Maureen Dipasqual and Lily Loui.
Maureen and her husband Dennis are regulars at The Y. In fact, all three leaders you will find at The Y more times than not, especially when a group fitness class is going on. Maureen has been a member for over 30 years all at The Tempe Family YMCA. Maureen’s favorite thing to do is take group fitness classes, her favorite class is Active Together with Lynette! Maureen comes to the Y to keep healthy, and even put her daughter through programs growing up. She loves the convenience of the Y as it is close to her home! Maureen & Dennis moved to Arizona from the Northeast, New York area, where they grew up. Fun Fact: Maureen didn’t know how to ski until she moved to AZ!
You might remember Lily from a previous member spotlight when the entire spotlight was on her for the All-In Challenge. Lily has been a member of the Tempe YMCA for 3 1/2 years. She expresses that going to classes is “her time”. She feels that going to classes has helped her balance and core strength. Lily also believes it has helped her health and lifestyle. As an example, when she walks her dog they go down by a lake and the dog will get excited and jump for fish which throws her off guard. Our strength and conditioning classes help her keep in control and keep balanced. Some of Lily’s favorite classes include; Defend Together, Healthy Back Yoga and Core Focus Together. She enjoys Yin Yoga because it helps culminate her week with relaxation on a Friday Night. She really enjoys the people and instructors in the classes. Lily said once she came in late and one of the participants immediately started putting her station together for her.
