Bea B.

Lakewood Family YMCA

When Bea found herself eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for breakfast, she knew that she and her whole family needed to change their habits, so she and her family joined the Y.

"The Y has given our family a common interest, even though we all have different reasons for coming here," said Bea. "It has definitely helped us all bond!"

Bea started to attend a cycling class twice a week, which helped her stay motivated to reach her fitness goals. She started to lose weight, build strength, and actually started to enjoy working out. Not only did it help her take better care of herself, all of her family members felt the benefits.

"Before coming to the Y, our lives rarely intersected on common ground," said Bea. "Now, we all enjoy getting along more peacefully!"
