Don’t let your new years resolutions run away from you just yet.
The YMCA is giving Vancouverites the opportunity to stick with your fitness goals without heading too far out of your comfort zone.
Unlike typical fitness centres, the YMCA focuses on a community approach, bringing Health and Fitness programs for people of all ages and levels of fitness. There’s no pressure to be the best out of everyone – just the best you can be.
To prove it, the YMCA is waiving their joiner fee for all of January, which means you’ll get all the benefits of getting fit without some of the cost. The deal is even better for one lucky Daily Hive reader – the YMCA is giving away a free six month membership so you can stay fit well into the new year.
