My Y Story...

Terri

Several years ago, I was diagnosed with an illness that required life-changing choices. As is typical, I was unable to make those changes on my own, which brought me to the Y…and it changed my life. This was the piece I was missing on my journey to becoming healthy! When I first started, I was nervous about working with people and unsure of myself. The staff helped me feel comfortable taking classes, and guided me to open up and start meeting my goals. I began making friends and today we continue helping each other work toward our individual goals. The Y staff have become part of my family! After a hard day, I walk into the Y and it feels like I’m coming home. Over the past few years I lost 50 pounds and have kept it off! Through daily Y classes, including group exercise, yoga, and swimming, I reached my goals and have become more active, resulting in energy to take classes that spills into the rest of my life. Recently I started biking and hiking, things I had not done before and have climbed mountains… something I would never have dreamed of doing! - Terri Wagner
