“We are thrilled to open the much-anticipated Functional Training Center, which helps solidify our leadership in the fitness industry,” said Marty White, Senior Health and Wellness director for the YMCA of Delaware. “We take fitness seriously while making it fun and rewarding. We want our members to be engaged and challenged so they train to the best of their ability. The studio provides our members with one-stop shopping for their fitness regimen.”

Those looking to change up their workouts to see results now have an alternative to joining a specialized training studio, plus they receive the added benefit of our indoor and outdoor pools, state-of-the-art fitness center, a weight room, over 150 water and land fitness classes, child care, and so much more—all under one roof.

If you join the Y between June 5-30, 2019, the Bear-Glasgow Y will waive the joiner’s fee for all new members who register for a small group training class.

“We look to continually upgrade and expand our offerings as a way to provide a health and wellness facility that exceeds all expectations. Our new Functional Training Center including our popular Training Alley is a major capital improvement to our facility that wouldn’t be possible without the support of our members,” said Terry Mullan, Group Vice-President.
