Your YMCA Spring Update

Well things may have slowed down a little outside with the nasty weather we've had, but they certainly didn't slow down inside our facility.  We've been busy in all areas from childcare to youth programming to fitness!!  Our Health and Wellness numbers have stayed pretty even throughout the course of the winter at about 850 - 900 members.  Our new Studio has been quite busy with the wide variety of fitness classes we're offering.  The feedback on the floor has been all positive.  In our Cross Training Center we've added a couple new treadmills and ellipticals, not to mention an assisted dip machine!!  Our new stretching area has been getting positive feedback because of it's size and the privacy they feel when back there.  And given that our new Studio is adjacent to the Cross Training Center, members have been availing of the quiet times out there, as well, to stretch and relax.

We have been seeing quite an increase in our past regular members returning to take in our many fitness classes and newly expanded Cross Training Center.   Welcome back!!!

We are very excited to announce the recent development of our Barrier Free Fitness (BFF) Program which targets populations lacking fitness/social programs.  One area of this program is called the Jumpstart YMCA Kid's Play program which targets children from the ages of 1 - 6 (all inclusive).  The Kid's Play program will run from April 5 - May 31, 2014 and will focus on structured and unstructured play that encourages socializing and body and sensory awareness. Parents and guardians will participate and enjoy an hour of quality, focused playtime with their child(ren).   Another area of the BFF Program will focus individuals who suffer from social anxieties and have behaviour/social issues.  Individuals in this group have been participating in modified Zumba Fitness classes in the past but it is our intention to add some social functions, such as movie days, boccia ball and cooking sessions, just to name a few.  This will allow them to reduce their social anxieties and develop a social network and some long lasting friendships.  Other areas of the BFF Program are currently being explored and an update will be forthcoming as soon as they are finalized.

Our morning babysitting numbers have remained quite high over the past few months. There's nothing sweeter than to see their excited, sweet little faces coming through the door every morning so they can enjoy playing while their mommies, daddies and grandparents attend class or go to the Cross Training Centre.  Their morning ritual is to run straight to the kitchen, gather around the table and enjoy their morning snack with each other.  It's almost like those little tykes have their very own breakfast club!!!

Our Playing to Learn Program and After School Programs, operating at various locations throughout the city, are quite busy and are almost filled to capacity.  Our staff are continuously improving the quality of programs and services provided to children.

During our annual Strong Kids Campaign in February, we are pleased to advise that we raised nearly $1800 through our Zumba Fitness fundraiser.  This money will help us continue assisting individuals and families who are unable to afford the cost of a full fitness membership and the cost of childcare in our programs.  There is no greater feeling than being able to help someone when they're going through a rough time and breaking down those financial barriers.

Our Community Youth Network continues to remain busy with lots of activities for our youth.  It's great to see our young dropping by to connect with their peers in a safe and fun environment.

We hope this gives you a little snapshot of some of the many great things we do here at the YMCA.  Stay tuned for our next update this summer.  

We look forward to seeing you soon.
