Jessica and her family were looking for a gym that would promote an active lifestyle for the whole family. They joined The Sherwood Regional Family YMCA shortly after arriving in Sherwood in February 2018, and their lives were changed because of the programs and the community that The Y promotes.
Her children have participated in summer camps, birthday parties and sports leagues at The Y. As their comfort level has grown, this facility has become a second home to them.
When Jessica first joined the Y, she immediately met with a fitness coach to build goals and begin a work-out plan that was customized for her. As time progressed, she and her husband suffered a miscarriage, which is when she realized that she needed to take her workouts seriously in order to support a healthy pregnancy and overall lifestyle. Personal Training through the Y ended up being the best option for her, and her trainer, Tiffany MacDonald, has kept her accountable through tough workouts that motivate her to keep coming back.
Jessica expressed that every time she has walked through the front doors, the friendly staff and welcoming community have made her feel more comfortable to continue her involvement here. However, the reasons she loves the Y the most are the programs that promote quality time with her family, and the all-inclusive mission on which the Y bases its values. She and her family are grateful to have moved to Sherwood, and the Y has helped them grow as a family in the community.
