MY Y is…

Welcoming!

The first day I stepped inside the doors of  the Parry Sound YMCA, I was welcomed by the staff in the office as though they were long-time friends. It was as if I was anticipated as they asked all the right questions and said all the right things.

I was given a tour that was, it seemed, done especially for me.

I knew that I had come to the right place as I came from rehabilitation from a stroke.

On my first session I was introduced to a young trainer who guided me expertly through the fitness training room in exercises that were appropriate for me. I continued these for a number of weeks and then was introduced to the ON THE MOVE-50 PLUS classes.

The three times weekly sessions have been good for me and I have seen the classes grow over the last couple of years.

The classes are not only good for physical development, but I and others also see them as social development as well. We have made new acquaintances  and a healthy camaraderie has developed.
