I enjoy the morning classes. One suggestion :. The floors in the group ex rooms could use some sweeping daily if they aren't already. I have seen lots of dust bunnies in there and we do spend time on the floor. Other than that, I love the Kilmarnock Y.
My daughter is a safe, healthy environment that she enjoys everyday after school. Being a single mom, I have to work full-time, and knowing that my children are taken care of until I can get there to pick them up each day is a blessing to me. My daughter gets a healthy snack and finishes her homework every afternoon before I get there, which gives us more time to spend together before bedtime each night.
I look forward to my training sessions with Traci Ford. She listens to your fitness goals and knows how to develop a plan to help you move towards those goals. Best of all, she assesses how you are at each session and will tailor/modify the day's plan based on that assessment. This is training that doesn't make you fit the plan, but fits the plan to you!
Many on staff are very cordial, knowledgeable, and eager to be help and/or share information. Ms. Barbara, Heidi, and Shell at the front desk, and John who works evenings in the weight room are always so welcoming and helpful. Also, there are adequate machines so there is rarely a delay in carrying on with my workout because I need to wait. I also very much appreciate a return to the high standards of cleanliness in the locker rooms and bathrooms to which we had previously been accustomed.
I am at the Y on average 6 days a week. Four of those days are in the pool with the Masters Swim program and the other two are in the gym, working out on my own. The Y facility is incredible, especially considering that this one is located in a rural area. The variety of programs and classes is diverse and appropriate for our community and the staff is friendly and caring. As a swimmer, I am really excited about the new pool facility which will open in a few short weeks. As an athlete, I appreciate the opportunity to work out in a great facility. In general, I appreciate the sense of community that the Y facilitates.
