My Y Story – Deneice
Deneice came back to the Y about a year ago after trying out other gyms in the area. She realized how much she loved the community environment of the YMCA. She started taking aquatics classes but after surviving cancer she decided to switch to the Silver Sneaker program because now she has to “wear her hair.” Deneice was impressed by the professional and caring YMCA instructors and how they deliver workouts that cater to seniors at all levels of fitness.
Not only does Deneice love the classes and instructors she has also enjoyed making new friends. She remarked that she has met many people on the wellness floor of all ages and likes the fact that age does not create barriers. Deneice recognizes that the YMCA is different than other gyms because she feels the Y really cares about relationships, quality programs, and helping the community.
