Rye Y Story Project: Evelyn S.

EvelynI’ve been coming to the Rye Y for about five or six years now. I started coming for the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program and Peter was our instructor. After I finished the program, I decided to join the Y because I liked it here.

When they had Weight Watchers here, I attended that as well. I had a lot of medical stuff in the past few years so I was not coming as much, but now I’m back and I am healthy! I decided that I needed to continue with private instruction because I didn’t know what I needed to do that would be good for me. Now I’m training with George Lambrecht. I needed someone to push me and George does!

The people here are fabulous. I equate it to my Cheers! It’s a beautiful facility and I love that there are SO many classes! I started doing Pickleball here, and it is a brand new thing to me. Tatum is such a good instructor. She tells us when were good and when we’re bad (just joking). There are only four of us in the group and I’m enjoying it very much. It’s a close knit group.

That’s basically my story. I love it here. Everyone is very friendly but also professional. I love coming!
