Keith has been a member for just over a year. He came to the Y because he was getting increasingly worried about being unhealthy and overweight. As a volunteer for the Special Olympics Swim Team, he was bothered by the fact that he was not modeling good healthy and fitness for the team.
Keith starting coming to the Y and exercising regularly for a few months when he started to notice real change in his weight. Well, that led to a decision to start eating better – which included cooking more of his own meals. Keith admits changing his exercise habits were the hardest, but that led him down a much healthier path. Now, he’s 90lbs lighter and a whole lot healthier. He’s also made new friends at the Y- including staff- which motivates him to keep coming back. Once he set his routine, fitness became a part of his life. Good job Keith! We are so glad you are part of our Y.
