Saddletowne YMCA Fall Family Extravaganza

What is an extravaganza you ask?  Merriam-Webster defines an extravaganza as “a very large and exciting show or event.”  We couldn’t think of a better word to describe our upcoming Fall Family event!

Celebrate the changing of the seasons at the YMCA Saddletowne Saturday, October 5th from 3:00-5:00 PM.  Bring the whole family to participate in a fitness obstacle course, a preschool drop-in gym, arts and crafts, a water safety relay race, face painting and more!

This exciting event is free for members; non-members pay only $20 per family.

We’ll see you then!

Ongoing Program Registration at the Saddletowne YMCA

It is never too late to get a healthy start!

I attended my first Resistance Bootcamp last Friday afternoon.  In the space of that single one hour class I felt as if I accomplished half a dozen self-directed work out sessions (and my muscles felt it too!).   I’ve always enjoyed jogging, exersizing at home and swimming.   Family and work responsibilities can get in the way however, and self-directed excersize can get bumped down the to-do-list of daily life.

Registering in a class is making an investment in yourself, in your health.  I feel commited and excited about my health journey, and can’t wait for the next class.  Spaces are still available in many of our Fall Adult, Youth and Preschool classes; click here to view our fantastic new calendar.  Prices are always pro-rated to reflect remaining classes.

If you have any questions about our classes please don’t hesitate to give me a call!
