Joan's Story

Joan attends Aqua Jog and loves it! She has gone from walking with a cane to walking with confidence at the Y within four months.

Before Joan was a member at the Y, she was hurt and had several surgeries. She struggled walking into the facility and needed a cane to support her. Joan was so tired; she had to rest between walking in and taking a group fitness class. To help her build her strength back up, she started attending Aqua Jog at the Wolf Creek YMCA and within four months, she could walk without a cane.

“I feel so much better now at 70 than I did at 65!” said Joan.

Even though she may have some bad days, Joan finds coming to the Y and participating in the class helpful and enjoyable. Not only does she feel healthier and stronger, but she has also made some long-lasting friends along the way.

Like Joan, our members find the support and motivation they need to live a healthier lifestyle through access to group fitness classes, personal trainers, and knowledgeable staff. Everyone belongs at the Y, and we want you to join us!
