11 Jul Member Spotlight – McPherson Family YMCA
If you are wanting to get into shape, maybe find activities or sports for your kids to get involved with, or you’re thinking of doing some cross fit training – then McPherson Family YMCA is the place for you! They literally have something for ALL ages!
If you go to the McPherson Family YMCA website you will find a detailed list of activities, sports opportunities, and classes for every person in your family!
Some of those activities include ones you would expect, like swimming lessons and weightlifting, the seasonal sports like baseball, golf, soccer, and basketball. BUT were you aware that they have racquetball, handball, AND pickleball available? You can take yoga classes, join the Y-Spin class or take advantage of the Group Ride class (a 60-minute cycling experience over a variety of terrain). Cardio Dance is another option (we’re talking exercising that actually sounds like fun!) You might want to look at the Group Centergy class. It incorporates yoga and Pilates fundamentals with athletic training for strength, balance, mobility, and flexibility. These are just a few of the opportunities you will find at the McPherson Family YMCA. And NEW at the Y is the Functional Fitness Area. It includes cross training as well as alternative ways to traditional weightlifting. Instructions in the usage of the equipment is available in the Functional Fitness Area and members also have the option to go to the video playlist available on the Y’s Facebook page to also help with instruction.
There is so much happening at the McPherson Family YMCA and lots of opportunities for all of your family. McPherson Family YMCA is located at 220 N. Walnut. Their hours are Monday-Friday 5 a.m.-8:30 p.m. On Saturday they are open 7 a.m.-1 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 p.m.-4 p.m., making it much easier for folks to make time to fit exercise into a busy family schedule. Check out the Y Facebook page for updates on activities and you won’t want to miss checking out these photos from Chamber Connections hosted by McPherson Family YMCA to get a taste of some of the services their facility offers.
