Rye Y Story Project: Lisneida

LisneidaI’ve just been a member of the Y for a little while. We chose the Y after looking at various health clubs and workout spaces. This was the third place we looked at. We chose the Rye Y because of the environment, and we also wanted a pool. People were very welcoming. You hear lots of foreign languages spoken and it’s a very diverse community. I love that you’ll see three generations of families coming here. There is no judgment here, and I feel comfortable.

I use the weight room and like doing my own exercises, which gives me flexibility. When I have questions, the staff is always very accommodating and shows me how to use the machines. It’s very relaxed which is rare thing to find. You don’t see that at a lot of places. Nobody is fighting over the weights like you see at sports clubs crowded with testosterone-filled men.

My partner and I found a gym where we belong.
