Torres Family

Lakewood Family YMCA

Bobby and Connie Torres knew they had to make a significant change to their lifestyle when their son Nick started having health issues. Based on their doctor’s recommendation, they signed up for the ACT! Actively Changing Together program at the Y. To support Nick, they decided to all commit to changing as a family.

“We realized that we weren’t alone,” said Bobby. “There are other families out there with the same issues we have.”

Through the ACT! Program, the Torres family learned about nutrition and exercise and built new healthy habits together.

“It was wonderful that we got a free membership during the program,” said Connie. “It gave us a chance to try the Y and see if it would be a good fit. As a family, we see the Y as a priority and an important part of our weekly routine.”
