CRYSTAL LAKE, IL – Although it was a hot summer, that didn’t stop members from having fun and staying fit at the Sage YMCA.
We had over 300 people sign up for our Summer Fit 2012 Program. Of those participants, 181 earned a special Y T-shirt for working out 30 times in 60 days.
To show team spirit, members wore their hard-earned shirts on Monday, Sept. 10.
The idea of challenging oneself motivated the members of the Sage Y. They found it to be an exciting challenge to see if they could hit their goal of 30 times in 60 days.
More than 60% of the Sage members who participated met their goal! It was a great kickoff to the fall and season and motivated members to continue challenging their fitness goals.
To keep the momentum going, the Sage Y is here to help and is offering personal training this fall. When talking to a personal trainer at the Y, patrons will find someone who is genuinely interested in their health.
A personal trainer can help members define their goals and also create a plan with them to reach that goal. The trainers hold members accountable and keep them motivated through different workout routines that will help them reach and maintain a healthy body.
Seventy-five percent of people who exercise are not getting the results they want, but of the 25 percent who are succeeding, 90 percent of them are working with a personal trainer, according to the International Health and Fitness Association.
The diverse group of people trained at Sage sets the Y apart from other fitness facilities. The personal trainers work with people of all ages and backgrounds. They stay up to date on health education and the latest trends to serve the diverse needs of the members.
