“My Y helped me become healthy”

My Y is a place that you can find an activity that you will love and that’s tailored for you. Whether swimming, strength training, or one of the other many activities the Y offers, you will find the support you need to continue on your journey for whatever your goal is. Before I started at the Y I was 340 lbs, I was morbidly obese, my liver was full of fat, my blood pressure was uncontrolled and I needed to get off the couch. The Y welcomed me with opened arms and showed me everything they had to offer. I started with swimming and since have lost 152 lbs, my blood pressure medication, I feel strong and I have found friendships and support from staff at Y.

My Y isn’t one class, one social group or economic group. My Y is everyone. My Y is inclusive to everyone. My Y is going to be part of my life for the rest of my life.

My name is Anne Dittmar and this is MyY.
