Life can become so hectic that it’s hard to find a good balance. Between juggling work, family, and finances, sometimes your physical and emotional well-being are the last things on your mind. However, including fitness in your daily schedule can become much easier if you make health and wellness a family activity. By becoming a member of the YMCA, you and your family can enjoy all the benefits we have to offer in a fun, safe environment. There are many FREE activities that can help bring your family closer together and build a healthy lifestyle.
Family Fun Nights
Family fun nights are a great way to spend quality time with each other and stay busy, happy, and healthy. Our regularly scheduled family events throughout the year include movies, games, dinners, inflatables, bonfires, roller skating, and much more! Days, times, and activities may vary by location, so be sure to check the calendars for our Downtown and 18th Street locations.
Staying in shape doesn’t have to be boring, and it shouldn’t feel like a chore. At the Y, we offer a variety of free Group Fitness classes with flexible times to fit your schedule and your needs. You’ll also get the encouragement and support you need to stay motivated. With fun classes — like Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, Water Aerobics, and Strength Training — it’s easy to find the perfect group activity that you and your family can enjoy. When you make health and wellness a family effort, the journey to a better you can be much more enjoyable and long lasting.
Other fun activities include Youth Sports, Swim Lessons, and Adult Leagues. If you have smaller children, we also offer child watch services and youth development programs. Both parents and children can enjoy various recreational activities that promote a healthier, happier lifestyle.
There is always more joy in giving than there is in receiving, and your Lafayette Family YMCA volunteers can attest to that. Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the community and give back. Doing so as a family is another way to spend time together while, at the same time, taking an active role in strengthening our community. Sharing in a volunteer work that provides the resources and support to men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds teaches a valuable lesson in unity, love, and support. There are various ways you and your family can help support our mission to give back to our community and neighbors in the Greater Lafayette area. Contact us to find out more!
As a member, you’ll not only enjoy the opportunities described above, you’ll also benefit from the perks of being a part of a community that values honesty, respect, responsibility, and compassion. For example, you and your family will have access to state-of-the-art health and wellness equipment, fully-trained and caring staff, free open swim and gym time, and personal trainers. Most importantly, when you and your family become members of the YMCA, you’ll be joining an even bigger family in which we build and encourage one another to do more, be more, and live healthier. And there’s nothing more encouraging than that! Better yet, there are now various membership tiers, allowing you to pick the one that is affordable and a best fit for your family.
