"When I first came to the YMCA, I was a committee volunteer. I became more involved with the Y and volunteered for the YMCAs World's Largest Run on June 2. After the run, I drove to the YMCA West Program Center and joined. I wanted a place to fine tune my swimming skills for my first triathlon in July. I knew the YMCA was a great place from my volunteer involvement, but I am totally impressed from my new point of view...as a member. The staff is always friendly, caring and helpful. The pool is great and I can't say enough about the quality of my private lesson instructor, Stephanie. I will continue to swim at the Y, but am looking forward to finding a new challenge, perhaps the assisted chin - dip machine in the lifestyle center."
