YMCA a great resource this time of year

By Staff
At the beginning of each new year, month or week, we welcome the opportunity to make a fresh start, develop better habits and correct our mistakes. There's something about a beginning that gives everyone a little more energy to put toward their own health, but maintaining that level of energy can be the tough part.
One advantage Brewton residents have is the Brewton Area YMCA. The YMCA offers facilities for many fitness activities in one friendly and accessible location. Members can work out, take classes and participate in sports, but the body is only one segment of a total mind-body-spirit wellness program.
Keeping a New Year's resolution to be healthier means taking care of all three, and the YMCA offers the tools to do that.
The benefits of regular exercise are countless, and the Y has both the equipment and expertise to guide members through a safe and effective fitness program.
Relieving stress is another important part of healthier living. Besides reducing stress with physical activity, YMCA members can take advantage of massage therapy, yoga classes or the sauna.
Making a resolution to be healthier in 2004 is fun and easy at first, with the excitement of starting a new project, but when resolve wears thin and motivation fades, we all need support to help us keep working toward a goal. The Brewton Area YMCA can provide that support, and Brewton is fortunate to have such a resource.
