YMCA of Metro Atlanta waiving new member fees in February
From Special Reports
The YMCA of Metro Atlanta announced on Friday it’s removing joining fees for new members through February. In addition, the organization is allowing members to bring up to two guests per day for a complimentary visit at the Y. Each guest receives one free visit to the Y per year.
This offer includes the Summit Family YMCA location here in Coweta County. The announcement also kicks off a free wellness challenge for members and nonmembers which begins today (Feb. 7). The Summit Family YMCA is located at 1765 Highway 34 East in Newnan.
YMCA membership includes access to 19 metro Atlanta YMCA locations, world-class pools, exercise classes, state-of-the-art equipment and 1-on-1 wellness coaching. Additionally, members gain access to YMCA360, an on-demand video platform offering group exercise classes, youth sports training, well-being classes and more.
“Now more than ever, we want to encourage the community to prioritize their health and wellness,” said Lauren Koontz, president and CEO of YMCA of Metro Atlanta. “We created this membership offer and interactive options to provide members with opportunities to learn, grow and thrive. The Y is dedicated to building healthy, confident, secure and connected communities.”
To motivate Y members and nonmembers to get active, the Y is offering a free wellness challenge. The RESET Challenge, a 21-day event, begins February 7 and is designed to help participants build healthy habits. Members and nonmembers interested in participating can sign up by texting the keyword RESET to 844-889-6222. Participants can track their weekly progress on a bingo card, which will be texted to registrants and available at Y locations. Once individuals complete five consecutive activities, they can text BINGO to 844-889-6222 to enter for an opportunity to win a weekly prize.
