Monroe NY YMCA to expand

I have found that during the winter months, the Monroe NY YMCA is a great place to get exercise, especially when the shoulders of the roads become too icy to run on.

 

The gym has all sorts of exercise classes, including cycling, Pilates, Boot Camp, Zumba, yoga, and much more. 

 

In addition, they have the typical assortment of cardiovascular related machines: bikes, treadmills, steppers, and of course, various weight-lifting/muscle-toning options.

 

To make the gym even better, I recently read in the Times Herald-Record that the YMCA will be expanded at some point in the future. They plan to add a swimming pool, a full-size gymnasium and more locker rooms. I am not sure of the timeframe, but once this upgrade happens, the Monroe NY YMCA will be "the" place to work out, all year round.

 

The YMCA is located at the 45 Gilbert St Ext in Monroe NY, right next to the Heritage Trail. Check it out!

The YMCA was a life saver for me growing up in a very small and tuff touwn. It was a great refuge. I leaned to swim there, play basketball and had great mentors for my life.

Good morning Kat. Nice job sharing the information about the expansion of your local WMCA. Unfortunately the one near my office does not do very well, there is a lot of competition.

Hi Kat, that is great that the Monroe NY YMCA is going to expand. Our workout room in our resident's center is already inadequate.

I'm a big fan of the YMCA facilities around our country. While I love our gym, if there was a Y around, we'd likely be members. D Nice Localism.

YMCA and YWCA in our area have many many programs to benefit us, including supporting a woman's abuse center.

Hi Kat.  Our local Y has a gym and pool and much more.  And, it is one of the more popular places to go for fitness.

First of all, you know I'm an exercise enthusiast so this is a great shout out for the local YMCA. Secondly, the fact that it's on Gilbert St. makes it the place to be!

Alan - Now THAT's a shout-out!

Mark - I'm looking forward to that pool.

Joe - There are quite a few gyms in the area also, but the Y seems to hold its own.

Sybil - Luckily I can usually go off-busy hours so it's rare that it's too crowded. I do get disappointed when I can't use "my" machines.

Debb - Thanks for your comment!

Evelyn - They sound very involved in the community - that's a great thing.

Endre - Haha, those pots and pans don't take much effort to lift!

Gabe - I am glad it's one of our choices.

Nicole - I didn't even pick up on that, but of course you wouldn't miss it!

Hi Kat,

I belong to my local YMCA and love the pool there, so that will be a great addition to the Monroe NY YMCA in the near future!
