Into my fourth week (ever) of membership at the YMCA and so far, I'm loving it. For three weeks I went three times a week to swim. This week I'm taking time off from laps to try out the pool classes - arthritis, silver splash, and aqua exercise. I've been studying the class schedule for yoga, pilates, and cycle lite, which I may try next week along with swimming.
The Y is a nice facility and convenient to our new house/neighborhood. But the best part has been the people I've met in the three classes I've been to so far. Really nice, welcoming folk who want me to enjoy exercising with them and come back. The staff have all been nice and helpful too.
