Sabina G.

Lakewood Family YMCA

Growing up in Italy, Sabina always struggled with her weight. She moved to Washington when her husband was stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and registered her daughter for a swim class at the Y, but never thought to join the Y herself. Everything changed when she stepped on a scale and realized that she weighed over 200 pounds. She decided something needed to be done, so she started taking group exercise classes and found the push she needed to turn her life around.

"It's been an amazing journey to be part of this amazing family," said Sabina. "Seeing people that go through what I have been through and struggled with all my life and come out as winners makes me happy."
