I’ve been coming to the Rye YMCA for thirty years. This is the place I go. My kids go. My wife goes. I went before I had any kids and now they’re 26, 24 and 21.

Most of the time I go swimming but I do free weights and machine weights, too. I’ve always been athletic, I played three different sports in college and after that I played tennis and I ran marathons.

Now I’m 62 and I need to stay in shape because I do mission trips to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. You have to stay in shape to do that kind of work. It’s like a marathon. I go about five times a year so I’m constantly working out to stay in shape for the next trip.
