Steve's Y Story

My wife Julie and I love the Copple Family YMCA. I’ve enjoyed working out my whole life. I had a full gym in my house for over 20 years so it was always easy to find the time to work out. We moved back to Lincoln 2 years ago and bought a townhouse so the gym had to go.

When we were looking to buy our townhouse, we were informed they were opening a new YMCA just blocks away. We joined months before it opened and couldn’t wait. I went to work out the first day it was open and was so pleased with the thought that went into it. The place is a palace and the equipment is state-of-the-art. There is so much open space and even at its busiest times, you can still get a good workout in. My wife loves both of the pools and we spent a lot of time at the outdoor pool last summer.

The biggest bonus is the staff. It starts at the top with Chris and Heather. They are always so friendly and helpful. Then you have the dream team (Jen and Suzanne) in the morning to make you feel welcomed. All the Front Desk staff makes me feel like family when I come in. I have developed a team of workout buddies who keep me motivated in the mornings. It’s great to come in and have a bunch of friends all striving for the same goals. We started doing yoga at the beginning of the year and the instructors are top-notch. They teach to your level and are so encouraging.

To sum it all up, it comes down to the people, and whenever I work out at the Copple Family YMCA, everybody is so nice from the staff to the people working out. Keep rocking!
