Love the aquatic classes, especially Jenn's. Disappointed that they stopped the class "Walk It Off". Miss Michael's Monday class , "Functional Fitness". His knowledge that he shared with us was amazing. Wish he would come back and teach more classes. I use what he taught everyday.

Bear-Glasgow Y has such a great variety of group exercise classes, it's hard to choose! We love the instructors, who always keep you motivated and actually make fitness fun! The social atmosphere is inviting and contributes to your well-being. Our favorite classes are Flex and Flow with Maura, spinning with Amy and Pamela, core challenge with Pamela, and body pump with Jackie, Chelsea, Bianca, Nicole, and other rotating instructors. We plan to take a small group training class during the Winter session. We exercise 6 days/week, splitting our time between Middletown and Bear branches. I highly recommend Bear-Glasgow Y to people of all ages for a fun and healthy fitness journey!

I love that Alexis Drew is qualified and available to work with me with a harness and treadmill. I really like that it doesn't cost any extra money for her services. Also that I qualified for financial aid. She is very friendly, helpful, well informed and she is very flexible with her time with me. A lot of time I have to adjust my days to make my Dr. appointments.

There seems to be programs for most people although announcements for new activities and programs could be sent out via email? That would help spread the word. Also, when the Y in Middletown expands, please consider a locker room to change clothing from work attire to workout clothes as well as increase the number of restrooms. Thank you.

I go to the Y because of health problems I have. I go to the MS class in the pool. Diane is the instructor and keep us moving. My Doctor said if I don't do this, at least 3 times a week, I will not be able to move at all. I'm glad the Y cares about the people and what we need. I've told several people about how nice all the people who work there are, clean place to be, and so many classes, as well as free time to be in the pool or work out on your own. I'm very glad I get to go there. I've made a lot of friends too.

I like diversity. However, some feel that the active older adults have been put On the "back burner".

I like the senior- friendly aerobic classes and water aerobics classes. I don’t want anything to do with the Hindu related exercise program ie yoga or yoga influenced programs. I know that it is so prevalent and widely-accepted now, that no one thinks twice. Especially since it actually gives the feeling of wellnesss and overall well-being that comes from (what some believe is) the preternatural influence of the pagan religion. Psalm 95:5. “All the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.” Douay-Rheims Version
