We had just moved to South Amboy this past winter and it was a hectic move, but all I kept thinking wasPicture1 as soon as the last box was unpacked I was joining that beautiful YMCA facility.  The YMCA of South Amboy is the heart of the town.  Not only is it where I work off those extra pounds on a daily basis, but it’s where I meet new neighbors both young and old alike. I hadn’t been in any fitness program prior to my joining the Y and while consulting with my personal trainer, Mark during the orientation he asked when was the last time that I had been to the gym.  My answer was short and to my embarrassment brutally honest, “Senior High 36 years ago.”  Thank goodness for me that the YMCA of South Amboy is friendly, fun, and forgiving.- A South Amboy Y Member

  • Pat's Story

    On Saturday, September 22nd, Pat completed her first ever 5K at the Janice Garbolino Memorial 5K Run/Walk.  Pat is a graduate of the 12 week LiveSTRONG program from the South Amboy Branch YMCA.  She was very interested in being involved in the 5K and proudly wore her “I am a survivor” tag on her shirt on race day.  She told me she was unsure if she would be able to do the entire walk, but would go at a slower pace and if she felt she could not handle it, she would turn around.  After realizing how long of a walk it would be if she turned around and went against all the other walkers, she decided to fight her way through to the end of the race.  When she came around the corner to the finish line, she had the biggest smile on her face.  Once again. she had overcome an obstacle and faced her fears.  As she walked to the finish line she crossed and said “I did it” with her arms out proud.  Hopefully this will be the first 5K of many!

    As told by LiveSTRONG Personal Trainer Whitney
