Steve R.

Bremerton Family YMCA

Before Steve stared at the YMCA his resting heart rate was pretty high. Steve wanted to change this situation and find a place to be active and healthy.

Now that he comes to the YMCA almost every day, his heart rate has gone from 75 BPM to 57 BPM. He has lost 70 pounds and his blood pressure has normalized to a rate not seen in years. The YMCA has become his home away from home. He loves the staff, saying "they are very friendly and helpful, without them, I could not make these changes."

His day at the Y usually starts in the early mornings shooting baskets so he can get a good warm up prior to heading back to the weight room to toss some weights around. Ending most days, Steve usually takes a relaxing sit in the hot tub to rest his muscles, prior to saying his goodbye to staff and leaving for the rest of his day knowing he got off to a great "Y start."
