Latest YMCA enrollment numbers suggest gym-goers are sticking to resolutions

Posted: Updated:

It looks like several people are sticking to their exercise resolutions for the start of the new least for now.
The latest numbers for membership enrollment at the Scottsbluff Family YMCA are in.

During the first eight days of January, the YMCA has received 44 new memberships and has added 88 new members.

In December 103 memberships were created adding 188 new members. November showed higher numbers - 144 memberships and 191 new members.

Membership Director Stacia Allen says numbers were higher in November than in December because typically less people sign-up late into the holiday season but will start again for the new year.

Fitness Director Lola Gonzales says besides New Year's resolutions affecting enrollment numbers, memberships have also increased because several people want to try the new fitness classes which have started this week.

Welcome Center Staff Member Nick Quevedo says it's been hectic at the front desk signing up new members but it's great seeing new faces at the Y.
"Within the past couple of days there's been a couple hundred of people I haven't even seen before here. It's kinda awesome to get to know those people and see what they're wanting to workout and get their goals through the year. I mean it's a busy place this time of year." Said Quevedo.

The Scottsbluff Family YMCA is opened during the winter Mondays through Fridays from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sundays 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
