“At the encouragement of my medical provider, I began
attending Enhance®Fitness classes at the YMCA. I needed
something close to home that would keep me coming back
week after week. Since starting I have seen improvements
in my strength, mobility, and agility, and my blood pressure
has even improved! I am inspired to keep attending by the
competence and friendliness of the instructor. My favorite
thing about the Y is the variety the class offers and getting
to know my friendly class mates and staff at the Y.”
