Veronica: We have been members of the Y for about 4 years. We joined the Y as a family because of all of the help that the Y provides and because of all of the different programs that the Y offers that the whole family can participate in. We love the cardio equipment, taking classes, and the Amazing Kids department. As a family, we take all of the different classes, like Zumba, Group Power, and Cycling. Our kids love spending time in Amazing Kids and also love spending time in the swimming pool.
The Y has helped us lose weight and get in better shape as a family. We love coming to the Y in our free time because it allows us to spend time together and also focus on our health. In the summer, on Saturdays and Sundays , our whole family comes to swim in the pool. Coming to the Y has allowed me and my husband to lose weight and get healthy for our family. My husband likes to relax in the sauna and steam room, and I like to take group fitness classes with my daughter.
We are always recommending this YMCA to our friends. We have been to other facilities and we feel that the Lincoln Family Downtown Y is where we belong. We love the staff and the people that work out here. There is a family oriented feel to this facility and we love feeling like we belong to the community at the Lincoln Family Y. The kids like coming to the Y because the Amazing Kids staff plays games with them and does art projects with them. The Amazing Kids staff knows each of them by name. Even though we live further away from the Downtown Y than other gyms, we will always choose the Y. We are willing to travel the distance to come to “our” gym.
Oscar: I like coming to the gym to exercise then relax in the steam room and sauna. I am a wrestler so I spend 5-6 months of the year wrestling and 5-6 months of the year training at the Y.
Maria (Daughter): I used to be shy and afraid. With my mom’s help, I started coming to the Y and taking classes and exercising with her. I learned that I can be brave by coming to the Y.
Veronica: One fun fact about our family? We are expecting a baby!
