I’ve been a member at Stoney Creek Express YMCA for more than five years. My motivation stems from the friends that I’ve made, the helpful and courteous staff and management and the simple fact that fitness keeps you healthy. If I were to recommend this Y to a friend, I would say: go to the Y. You need to stay healthy and once you start, don’t quit. Set up a schedule and stick with it. In the time that I have been a member, I have already reached my goal of picking a machine and setting a goal number of reps and sets.
