"The YMCA has advantages that other health and wellness facilities do not," says Katie Beck, executive director at the Miller Y. "At the YMCA, you can lose weight, tone up, reduce stress, spend time with your family, make friends, provide value-based activities for your children and set healthy lifestyle goals for the New Year."
The free membership is for January 24 through 28. The Miller YMCA membership goes through January 30. On January 29, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the Conejo Valley YMCA will host local health and wellness professionals who will discuss their services. YMCA staff will also be on hand to provide tours of the facility. “Joining the Y can be the greatest value for your family's health and well-being,”
The Ys are offering special fitness and nutrition programs to start the New Year. "People tend to exercise less and eat more during winter," says Patrick Yarrow, Conejo Valley YMCA associate executive director. "January is the best time to go against that trend and begin healthy habits."
To sign up for a free, one-week membership or arrange a facility tour, contact the YMCA in your area: Conejo Valley YMCA (4031 N. Moorpark Rd., Thousand Oaks, 805-523-7613)
