YMCA offers many ways to join or reconnect this fall – Journal Gazette and Times-Courier

Fall is a great time to join or reconnect with the Mattoon Area Family YMCA. Besides the return of many seasonal programs, September is a chance to join the Y without paying a Joining Fee. To give back to our community, we will offer a Membership Special Sept. 5 through Sept. 30. This is up to a $75 savings for a family joining the Y. At the Mattoon Y you will also find that you never sign a contract to have a membership and there are no hidden fees with a Y membership.

Why join now? The Mattoon YMCA recently collaborated with Sarah Bush Lincolns Center for Healthy Living to offer more opportunities to our community. When signing up for a Mattoon Y membership, you now have an option to also workout within the Center for Healthy Living located on the campus of Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospital. This new option for Y members adds convenience for potential members who live east of Mattoon or in Charleston.

Another great reason to join the Y is the Wellness Incentive programs offered to keep members engaged in healthy living. Only at the Y will you find Healthy Start. Programs such as Healthy Start offer an opportunity to learn more about nutrition, proper exercise technique, reading food labels, stress management and sleep habits. Over the eight weeks of the program, a certified personal trainer will meet with members in a small group setting twice a week. Other upcoming Wellness Incentive Programs: the NEW Total-Y Wellness which will include emotional, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual strength. Another popular Wellness Program is Hold Your Weight which will help hold you accountable over the holidays. Visit with Y staff to learn more about these programs.

Only at the Y will you find something for everyone and this includes the youth. Seasonal programs such as Hang Time and Dance 101 return in September and are included in the price of a membership. Hang Time offers a fun activity for youth in K-6th grades four nights a week within the YMCA. This program allows parents time to enjoy their own workout while the kids are entertained and involved in a healthy activity, which may include small group activities, crafts, games and gym time.

Only at the Y will you find Membership for All. The staff at the YMCA believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to belong.
