WHAT THE Y CAN DO FOR YOU...
"It's easy to become part of the Y-Family. I have found this to be especially the case at the East County Family YMCA. I have always exercised; it is part of who I am. I choose to exercise and belong to the East County Family YMCA because the benefits go far beyond the physical benefits of exercise. Yes, exercise is good for the body; but getting exercise at the Y is also good for the mind and the soul. That is the extra benefit that the East County Family YMCA provides. The people, members and staff are always there to listen, support and guide; not only in ways related to ones workout, but ones life!"
