Honestly I’m brand new to the program and I’m only there one day a week so I’m not sure I’m the best one to answer this. I like the people

There are so many classes for all types of levels. I appreciate that! I often recommend them. I also feel the swim lessons tier that was created has been beneficial. I see improvements in the staff and the concern with monitoring strokes, etc. Kudos!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Bear-Glasgow YMCA!!! I appreciate the fact that is a full-service center catering to ENTIRE family. As a "senior citizen", I participate in the gym, yoga classes, classes designed to appeal to seniors and I'm planning on taking swimming lessons soon. I have only been a member since September 2018, but I have enjoyed every minute of my time there. Only thing is, I would love to see a full page layout of the schedule that you provide in printed version at the Y. ALSO, I'm sure there is a good reason why ALL of the yoga classes are free now, as more people are taking classes and are exposed to the practice. However since that is the case now, some of the 9:15 weekday classes become EXTREMELY crowded. (To the point, where I question the safety of the overcrowded room) I actually feel uncomfortable with the number of bodies in the room. Perhaps you can (1) limit the number of people who can fill the room and/or (2) offer MORE classes at different times so that people have more options.

The variety of classes that center on seniors. The instructors vary the exercises so we don't get bored. Some days we focus on one or two parts of the body, and it might be switched to other parts of the body in the next class. The instructors are watchful of people who might be having difficulty.

I am a single older gentleman I do not take advantage of the programs or activities. However, your Fitness areas and locker room are always neat clean and modern. Also your staff is always welcoming and approachable. I use the YMCA 5 days a week I don't know what I would do without it. I have rheumatoid arthritis which can get pretty bad sometimes and having a consistent exercise regiment keeps me limber and relatively pain-free. Dan [LAST NAME REMOVED]

The swim coaches are very patient with our very talkative four-year-old. She is a negotiator, and the coaches do an amazing job rearing her back to her swim lesson focus.

I like mostly everything at the Y, before & after the recent changes. I'm a bit surprised we don't really have enough treadmills at times. I really think the Y people do their best to make the Y bigger and better all the time. Keep up the good work! [NAME REMOVED]

I was previously a director at a YMCA in another state and I have to tell you that the Bear Glasgow YMCA really has it together. You have an employee Mark which is unbelievable! He is great with members and teaches an off the charts, fantastic H.I.I.T. class on Sunday morning. Keep up the great work!

They are "handy" for my use although I have had medical restrictions since joining. I plan to get into a more full program next week. Love that there is an instructor to guide thru the use of the exercise machine. I plan to use that also.
