Murrieta Family YMCA celebrates first 2 years

Opening in July 2015, the Murrieta Family YMCA is celebrating two years of operation in Riverside County.

The facility will host free group classes for the public, July 28 from 8 a.m. to noon. The celebration entails a variety of free adult fitness classes, youth classes, KidZone fun activities and free health and wellness assessments. The complimentary fitness classes will feature some of their 60 on-site classes from Pilates to spin classes, mind and body classes to general strength training and cardiovascular classes.

Murrieta Family YMCA invites everyone in the community to take part in their birthday celebration. Children ages 6 to 12 can check out the KidZone activities, and teens can try a taste of fitness with boot camp, yoga and Zumba classes.

The facility has three studios. The body pump, Zumba, boot camp and Silversneakers classes are in Studio A; spin class is held in Studio B and Pilates, yoga, barre and youth classes are in Studio C. Visitors will also have access to the weight room and general cardiovascular room.

Visitors and regular members can have two free hours of KidZone activities with every visit. The Y’s latest record is serving 300 children in one day, according to Executive Director Mark Barriere.

“Family is our bread and butter of what we do,” Barriere said. “84 percent of our members, a little over 3,000 people, are family members,” meaning that most members are a part of a family group, but the YMCA also offers membership to individuals and couples.

The nonprofit association hopes to give back to the community and thank them for their support for the last two years. The organization is constantly focusing on providing quality fitness training by running coat and food drives.

According to Barriere, the Murrieta Family YMCA has provided $20,000 in financial aid for members of the surrounding communities who cannot otherwise afford a health club. The program covers at least 50 percent of the membership fee and covers the enrollment fee if they qualify.

Join the Murrieta Family YMCA, July 28, for free fitness classes and a look into the family first facility.
