My ‘Y’ – where do I start? Well, let’s start at the end and the beginning. My wife and I moved to the Parry Sound area just over three years ago. We had come from the town of Carleton Place twenty kilometres west of Ottawa. We gave up our membership at a local private, modern fitness centre in the town. On one of our visits here prior to moving we checked out places where we could work out, including the ‘Y,’ as this had become an important part of our lifestyle.
Once settled into our new home, it was an easy decision to make – My Y – from the moment we passed through the front door and were greeted in a very friendly way by Peter, who gave us a tour and all the information we needed, to over time meeting all the instructors and personnel connected with the Parry Sound facility.
To sum up, it has become our home for exercise, personal fitness instruction and in general a place to meet many of the other people that use the ‘Y.’ There is nothing impersonal about the Parry Sound ‘Y’ – a friendly place for all.
