I am a senior and am thrilled that YMCA is senior friendly as well as other age groups. It's exciting to meet new people. I really appreciate the Diabetes Prevention Program and even the new people I've met there. The "Y" is a good way to increase your fitness levels while being social at the same time.

I love the Y. I usually go to Bear because it’s closer and has many more classes, but Middletown will get there with the new facility. I like to do Bodypump at Middletown to see my friends. Looking forward to being more active there when the new facility is built.

Zumba and Grit and Body Pump and access to the pool

Newark, DE
In my opinion, Dover is the best Y in Delaware (and I've visited them all). Everyone is super friendly and goes out of their way to answer questions and help out. I also really enjoy the 8-lane pool, which is never crowded when I come, and, unlike Bear-Glasgow, always has 8 lanes open during lap swim. Thanks to all for doing a great job!
