I have been a member at the South Y for many years now - it’s been so long I can’t even remember when I joined at this point! I just wanted to say for the first couple years of my membership I worked out and got healthier but never really lost weight. That was my fault because even though I was exercising there, I was not eating right at home and it was counterproductive to my exercising.

In 2009 I decided to change my diet to a healthier lifestyle and that first year I lost 80+ pounds! By early 2010 I had lost 100 pounds and I have kept it off with the combination of my eating, lifestyle, and exercising. I love coming to the Y and working out! My daughters have played sports and have taken advantage of the activities there. I have adopted a low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet into my exercise and it works great for me. I became an Atkins success story in 2010 and a couple months ago I won an Atkins all star competition! I just wanted to share my results.

Thanks and I look forward to continuing to being a member of the South Y.

I first joined the YMCA to stay in shape and found that in addition to the fitness element, I met a lot of nice people. These people became great friends and one even became my lovely wife, Velma. We married two years ago.

The YMCA has been a great addition to my life. I look forward to working out on a regular basis. The Y is one of the best kept secrets in the area. The staff is always friendly and courteous and often go out of their way to accommodate a member’s request.

The YMCA has not only given us the opportunity to improve our health, but has allowed us to gain many friendships over the years. We are still good friends with a family we met back in 2008 with the Gym & Swim program.

I enjoy walking the track and working out at my own pace in the fitness room. My husband and I watch our daughter at swim lessons, she truly enjoys those and is now at the Fish level. Mark enjoys the fitness room and we all enjoy the game room. Cheyenne has even joined the Kid Fit classes and is now able to join us in the fitness area.

The YMCA gives us alone or family time, depending on our needs, as well as the chance to learn from others. There are so many things to learn and plenty of helpful staff around if you have questions. It gives us a place to unwind and focus on our health. We can exercise and workout without fear of embarrassment—everyone is different and works out in their own way and ability. We are comfortable at the Y and feel better when we make time to go.

Our family benefits from the scholarship provided by the Annual Campaign, especially our daughter and her swim lessons. She sees two specialists at Children’s Hospital for various health reasons. They want her to swim for the fitness benefit and the scholarship helps us to afford the lessons for her. We are grateful for the assistance. Without the help, our family could not continue our membership.

The teachers provide an education, along with a caring environment. They are essentially the secondary caregivers for our kids, while we work during the day to provide for our family.

Financially, the scholarship allows us to continue to work and care for our kids, we couldn’t afford the child care otherwise. We do our best to attend all the Y events and support the YMCA, they’ve given us peace of mind. We know our kids are being cared for and learning skills that will help them once they are ready for school.

The Y always has been a place we can go to let go of the day’s stresses or even to get our days started out right. I know it’s been a positive place for my family and I am grateful. The Y has impacted our lives in so many ways. Swim lessons have allowed my children to build their confidence and social levels, not to mention my confidence in knowing they are learning life-building skills.

At one time things were really difficult for us and our well pump at home broke. Knowing we were able to come to the YMCA to take a shower with clean water until the pump was fixed was a huge comfort.

Our family benefits from the scholarship provided by the Annual Campaign, we take part in swim lessons, youth basketball, fitness classes and more. We are grateful for the assistance. Without the help, our family would not be able to continue our membership.

Our family benefits greatly from the YMCA. From my lifestyle transformation and knowledge learned from the Y trainers to my son’s new friends he has made through swim lessons, tae-kwon-do, and youth baseball, our family is excited to go to the Y.

We are SO THANKFUL for the Annual Campaign scholarship. With my husband finishing school and trying to secure a full-time position, we needed the extra help to maintain our YMCA membership. Without the help and our membership, I would not have been as successful in my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Jack would not have been able to take swim lessons or youth sports. Also, my youngest son enjoys the nursery when I NEED a break for a ‘me-time’ workout.
