SaraI started coming to the Y when I moved here from Brazil about three years ago. I was already doing triathlons and events like that in Brazil, so I wanted to find a way to continue that here. That’s what brought me and my family to the Y initially, and it is also where I made some great friends here in Rye.

I take Denise’s Power Cycling class. Denise is a great instructor! I always look forwards to her class, one of the best parts of the week! More than that, the members in that class are loads of fun and we have become pretty good friends.

I did my first Ironman over the summer and the Y became my second home as it is where I did most of my indoor training.

My family also enjoys the Y. My husband is currently training for his first half ironman, but even before that, he was an active user of the fitness center and pool. My kids are teenagers so they tend to come more often in the winter time to exercise or to use the game room. This winter, I may even get them involved in the swim program.

The Y has been a great way to keep our whole family active, move into the Rye community and meet new people.
