Held every January, the open house serves as introduction and promotional tool for the YMCA, educating residents and YMCA members about the different programing and options available.
“We want to get a lot of people to come in and learn about the Y, that’s the goal,” YMCA Membership Director Jen Spettel said.
The open house will have representatives and information from the different programs available to answer questions and will offer free tours of the facility, informative meet-n-greets with trainers, complimentary blood pressure screenings, body composition analyses, free recipes and healthy snacks for children.
“This is a great opportunity for us to show off what we do,” Bryan Tucker, executive director at the YMCA said. “It’s the one-stop to gather information on everything, and get questions answered.”
Started more than 10 years ago, organizers expect to see a couple hundred people throughout the event, which will be held on two dates, Jan. 15 and Jan. 25.
“This is important for us because we want the community to be healthy,” Tucker said.
For residents like Randy Olson, being healthy is the reason he switched his membership to the YMCA nine years ago.
“I like everything, with the Y, I got a one-time monthly fee and got everything, never have to pay extra for things, like the MS class,” Olson said.
Open to all Arvada residents interested in the YMCA, the open house serves as part of a larger goal for the YMCA.
“We want people to be a part of something bigger, the more people we can touch the better our community will be,” Tucker said. “Whether you’re an infant, a family, a single parent, a senior, have special needs, fit or want to be fit, the Y is here for everybody.”
