My Y Story...

Christi

I am a self-proclaimed workaholic, but the irony is I was living an unhealthy lifestyle while promoting health and wellness in my job. As a full-time working mother of two teenage boys and hosting several foreign exchange students, I got caught up in taking care of everyone else’s needs and not focusing on my own. In January 2010, I joined the Y and that spring I was introduced to Press Play, a program through the Y which allowed me to experience a taste of all the different classes they offered. I immediately liked Zumba, but felt intimidated and out of place because of my weight and lack of coordination. With the encouragement, support and energy that each instructor & regular class member gave me, my confidence and ability to learn the steps started to grow. Soon I was moving up rows and started to not care what I looked like or what others thought. Now, I am usually in the front and sometimes I still get embarrassed, because I sweat so much. Since starting the Y I have lost over 90 pounds! My goal is to maintain an active workout lifestyle by continuing with Zumba, along with yoga and cardio sculpt classes. When people say they don’t have time to work out, I just think to myself…hmm that’s what I use to say. Take it from me, it is possible, you just need to dig down and find the passion for it. I have more energy and able to accomplish so much more than I ever realized was possible. Humble and grateful are the words to describe how I feel for the place I am at now in my life. I know it wouldn’t have been possible without the support, encouragement and love I received from the staff and members I have met through the Y. Christi
