‘Take 5 at the Y’ This Summer: 5 Free Visits!

‘Take 5 at the Y’ This Summer: 5 Free Visits!
What kind of health & wellness program at the Westport Weston Family Y will work for you -- and your family? From May 27 until July 31, the Family Y is making it easy to find out. We're giving you and your kids 5 FREE visits to our Y's facility in downtown Westport, so everyone can find their fit at our Y. Plus, here's what we'll give you during your 5 free visits:

* One Wellness Assessment by a Y Certified Personal Trainer for each adult;

* One Swimming Assessment by a Y Certified Swim Instructor for each child.
Founded in 1923, the Y is a charitable, nonprofit membership organization that welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, abilities and financial circumstances. Our current membership of 5,300 represents nearly 15 percent of our community and 25 percent of all local youth.

The Family Y is building a modern new facility at its 32-acre Mahackeno campus that will allow us to serve our members and entire community in exciting new ways. Construction began in February 2013; our new home is expected to be open early this fall.

The new Westport Weston Family Y will begin as a 54,000 sq. ft. building that will include a 10-lane, 25-yard lap pool, with Aquatic Climbing Wall; adjacent warm-water family/teaching/therapeutic pool; Health & Wellness Center with expansive views of the Saugatuck River; multi-purpose Gymnasium; three group-fitness studios; an innovative Kids’ Club child watch area; five locker rooms, including one for those with dependent care; and other amenities of a fully equipped, family-oriented Y facility.

“Our Family Y is dedicated to being the premier family center in Westport and Weston,” says Brian Marazzi, Membership & Marketing Director. “And though we’re all excited about our modern new home opening this fall, we know the real benefit to being a Y member is in the atmosphere we create, the support we give and the connections we facilitate. That happens every day at our Y, and that’s why we’re inviting local families to ‘ take 5 at the Family Y’ this summer to stay fit and enjoy quality time together.”

To get started, simply stop by our Member Services Desk, near our Church Lane entrance. To find out about all the benefits of belonging to the Y, please contact Brian Marazzi, Membership & Marketing Director, at 203-226-8981, or bmarazzi@westporty.org.
