Tacoma Center YMCA

Marquis has been a member of other gyms, but never quite felt that he fit in. Two years ago, Marquis decided to join the Y, and it has been a perfect fit ever since. 

"The Y has become my second family," said Marquis.

A familiar face with members and staff, Marquis's first goal in any visit is to workout, but he always has to stop by and chat with Welcome Center staff. 

You can find Marquis in the weight room either working towards his own health goals or motivating others toward their own goals. Marquis eventually sees himself sharing his fitness knowledge with youth at Teen Late Nite to empower their health and well-being goals.
