University Y Student Center

As a young adult working and attending school full time, Kathy was struggling to find accountability and consistent motivation with her fitness goals. She was excited when she learned of the partnership between the YMCA  and the University of Washington Tacoma, where she works as the front desk manager at the Center for Student Involvement. She knew this partnership would grant her an automatic Y membership and instant access to assistance in meeting her fitness goals.

"So far the experience has been great, and the facility is much needed on campus," Kathy explains. "University Y Student Center has created a new spot for students to gather, either before or after class."

Kathy says what she enjoys the most about the Y are the great fitness amenities included in her membership, specifically programs like FitPath appointments and ActivTrax programming. FitPath is a complimentary appointment designed specifically for members ages 10 and older who want to have a tailored, progressive fitness plan. YMCA Health and Well-being staff meet to discuss goals to create an individualized program.

Thanks to the Y, Kathy has developed many new relationships and is surrounding herself with people who will encourage her to see her fitness goals to fruition.
