With the start of the New Year, the Harrison Family YMCA is offering local residents the opportunity to re-invent themselves.
This January, people can join the Y within the first 14 days and pay nothing. This means no joining fees or monthly fees for the month of January. This will be a great way to get in gear with those New Year resolutions. Along with this great deal, is their brand new equipment. In December, the Y received brand new strength line and cardio equipment to its wellness floor.
To help members stay on track, the Y is now offering a Coach Approach Program for all new members. Once a person joins, they can sign up for this brand new program, which allows them to become comfortable with the facility, programs, equipment and staff. It is free to all new members or rejoining members and lasts for six weeks, with a 30-minute session per week. During these sessions, people can learn all the dos and don’ts for a perfect workout plan. Coaches will motivate people and help keep them going even when they think they can’t. After completion of the program, they will be given a discount for the personal training program as well.
Last but not least is the January New You Health Fair hosted by the Y from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 21. This is also free and open to the public. There will be different health vendors present, offering freebies, informational material and free health screenings. This is a great chance for people to get their health checked out and possibly win some free giveaways.
