I love the variety of group exercise classes available especially the aquatics. The instructors are friendly and engaging, the facility is clean and the staff and members are awesome! I have met so many nice people and made some great friends here. The fitness center is filled with brand new equipment and the pool and sauna are so relaxing. But what is most important to me right now is the Livestrong program for cancer survivors. I was diagnosed with and treated for endometrial cancer and this program has helped me and others in my group ease back into fitness in a very caring and compassionate atmosphere. I feel grateful for the opportunity to participate in this wonderful program!

I especially like swimming year round. The shower/locker rooms are accommodating with one male one female and one family. Privacy is available for the shy and there are hair dryers available lots of hair dryers. The staff is friendly and helps whenever you need it. The life guards are always looking at the water and notice quickly if someone needs attention. The Y at Glasgow Bear is clean and smells fresh, it's a pleasure to be a member there.

I’m in the LiveStrong program and it is amazing. Everyone I’ve met at the Y has been kind and supportive. Even my husband has started to comes to exercise too and he hasn’t been to a gum since his military days in the 70’s! The daytime classes are perfect for everyone! Everyone goes at their own speed. I’m going to keep going!

I only ever go to the Fitness Center at the BrY. I've not taken any classes in the past 20+ years, and those were taken at the Western Y. The primary reason for my continued membership at the Delaware YMCA is the ability to take my son Ben, who has Autism, for a swim every Sunday afternoon all year long. It's one of the highlights of his week, and certainly of mine, too. He can be extremely difficult to work with and the YMCA community is full of understanding and encouraging people who help me get through what's often a 5-6 hour long process just to swim 30-40 lengths with Ben. Spending an hour waiting on Ben in the men's room, another hour waiting at the water fountain, and again in the shower can seem like an eternity in purgatory, but a kind word from some YMCA acquaintance can go a very long way to restoring my patience and making the afternoon less of an ordeal. If not for the pool, it's likely I'd go with a much lower cost option for exercise machines like Retro Fitness or LA Fitness.

I do not participate in the Dover YMCA programs and activities. We do use the fitness equipment on a regular basis and appreciate its availability. The staff at the Dover Y is good and strong and I am always happy to see them and say hi! I do wish Restorative Yoga was offered as a program.
