I’ve been a member of the Rye Y for five years. My personal trainer, George Lambrecht, suggested that I join when he began working here. I initially joined because of the convenience and the opportunity to train with George. Even though I could have joined other health clubs in the area, I decided to keep my membership at the Rye YMCA because I like it here.

I like the atmosphere and the environment. I come to the Y regularly and it’s great to be part of a community that is conducive to achieving my goals. It’s not competitive here and there is a strong support system. I value the Y’s culture. I appreciate all of the different personalities and characteristics of the members. I enjoy that I am able to work out and interact with so many interesting people at the same time.

Although it’s difficult for me to find time due to my busy schedule, I hope to get back into swimming once the weather warms up. I am also looking forward to enrolling my son in summer camp and having him involved in programs here at the Y.
