Ami's Story

Two years ago, I finally came around to joining the West Suburban YMCA. I did not realize it at the time just how many opportunities there were here. I had always been physically active before joining the Y, and I initially perceived the Y as just another area fitness center.

Ron's Story

After retiring, my wife’s patience was wearing thin with the amount of busy work I found myself getting into around the house. During that time, I was going to the Y once or twice a day, as I had been doing for years. Suddenly it dawned on me that since I spent a lot of time at the Y and enjoyed being there, working at the Y would be a great idea.

BollyX's Story

You have always been physically active, using the fitness center and running the track, but you’re looking for something new and exciting. On Wednesday nights, there is a class you discover called BollyX. Sounds interesting...
