Your Post-Feast Fitness
Friday, November 28, 2014

Open to the Public!

We know it’s easy to over-eat and neglect our physical fitness this time of year. That’s why we're inviting you to our Annual Turkey Burn, where you shake off those Thanksgiving calories and get a healthy start to the holidays! Join us for one or more of the following classes - we'll also have healthy snacks and social time (in true Y fashion). Space is limited to please arrive on time!

10:30am - Special 90-Minute Spin Class
11:00am - Zumba
12:00pm - Yoga


The holiday season is a time for giving, and our annual Toy Drive brings joy to hundreds of local families. Please consider donating... your gift may be the only toy they receive this year. All you have to do is choose an Angel from the tree in the lobby and take it to the Member Service Desk, purchase a gift from the child’s wish list (valued at $20 to $35), and return your unwrapped gift to the Y by December 11th!

This Fall, your Y on Monroe Avenue will glow. We are thrilled to share that our pool and wellness floor have undergone extensive renovations. The wellness floor (re-opened Sept. 22) features a new layout and new equipment including Treadmills, Ellipticals and Adaptive Motion Trainers!

We will also be introducing the Cool Kids Club for kids ages 4-12 later this year. Construction began November 5th - get a glimpse to the right. Stay tuned for our Grand Opening Activities!

We hope these improvements help our Y grow with our community’s needs.
