Rye Y Story Project: David L.

David-LI come here instead of physical therapy. After a major back surgery, the Y helps me stay in good physical condition. Coming here keeps my body from falling apart. I exercise here every other day and use the fitness machines to keep my body moving.

Everyone on the staff is especially helpful. My wife learned to swim here – Julianne performed miracles for her. Now she swims laps. We both enjoy coming here and so do our children and grandchildren.

The staff upstairs is excellent. I’m not a physical fitness nut but I know I have to do it. I’m full of arthritis and I come here to fight it. I won’t give in. That’s my old Army mantra.
