“I wasn’t one for exercise, but now I love coming and working out!”
Patty’s path that led her to us occurred after suffering a fall while camping with her son’s Cub Scout pack in 2016. Patty began her recovery process and realized she was overweight and wanted to make a change.
Shortly after, her son needed to pass a swim test at our Lansdale branch. Knowing she wanted to change her life and lose the weight, she inquired about membership. To her surprise, she found out that health insurance covers her membership. She immediately joined and got to work.
So far, Patty has lost over 20 pounds and is still determined to lose 5-10 more pounds. She credits the staff for being so friendly and helpful to keep her motivated on her journey, even admitting, “I wasn’t one for exercise, but now I love coming and working out!”
Patty describes the YMCA as her “happy place,” and loves coming to work out whenever she can. She still enjoys camping with the scouts, but now with greater energy and mobility!
