The Weekley Family YMCA is hosting a neighborhood open house on Jan. 14.
The YMCA recognizes how hard it can be to make a healthy lifestyle change at the start of the New Year and they want to support the whole community in this effort.
“The key to helping those resolutions stick is making exercise and healthy living a habit,” said Dawn Dunn, Weekley Family YMCA Healthy Living Senior Director. “Research shows that a behavior change such as regular exercise takes at least six months to establish. Too many people focus on guilt after indulging during the holidays, but that is an ineffective way to inspire change.”
The Weekley Family YMCA is one of more than 30 YMCAs participating in this city-wide open house.
The YMCA Open House will feature many activities including a Polar Bear Plunge, fitness demonstrations and activities for children.
The open house is Saturday, Jan. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Weekley Family YMCA, 7101 Stella Link.
