Rediscovering the YMCA

yChange is good. I keep telling myself that, but I’ve found when starting to make those changes to make myself healthier and happier I have to accept that I am not Superwoman. I am a mere mortal who has flaws which I prefer to think is the better part of me. Perfect is boring and honestly not natural. No, that is not an excuse. It is Ann.

So Ann has found a very nice way to help those angry joint days a little better at the South Tampa YMCA. If you’ve stopped in lately you have to just love their renovations. I happen to love the warm water workout pool. Whether it’s in a class or just me stretching, walking and enjoying my new water shoes and glove 2nd-annual-goody-goody-turkey-gobble-5k-67paddles it’s a treat that’s a workout. And that is a good thing. The Tampa YMCA is also a proud supporter of the Goody Goody Turkey Gobble 5K that’s coming up Thanksgiving morning. I’ll be hosting this year, and am so proud to know 100% of the proceeds raised from the 5K will support the Tampa YMCA’s LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA cancer wellness programs.

If you’ve been looking for a nice, friendly place that’s perfect for the family as well as those active adults the Y has it for you. Why not stop in at any of the 14 Y locations across Tampa and give yourself the gift of good health and fun. I grew up with the Y and will always have those memories. It’s just so nice to have these new ones.
