16-PaulGenoveseI joined the Rye Y about eight years ago after being encouraged to do so by my son who was a lifeguard here at the time. He said, “Dad, give it a shot … it’s a great place.”

Prior to becoming a member, I primarily exercised at my workplace facility and home gym. The Rye Y has a great deal more equipment and, along with the helpful trainers, I now complete better workouts. I utilize the Elliptical, AMT, stacked and free weights, and sit-up bench. My goal is to stay in shape and the Rye Y enables me to do exactly that. It’s a great affordable alternative to other more elaborate, socially focused fitness facilities.

My wife is also a member and enjoys the exercise classes, especially Zumba, and utilizes the Fitness Center as well. We both appreciate the friendly atmosphere here and the positive attitude of the staff. The Y is an important part of our community and we are committed to support it.
