Nearly three months ago the Washington YMCA and Bodywrx Fitness in downtown Washington merged. Looking back, Director of the Washington YMCA Becky Harkema says things are going well. Harkema explains she sees members using both Washington facilities and an increase in use of the Wellman facility, as members are now able to use any of the three facilities. Also, enrollment in fitness classes has increased.
In addition to the merger, the YMCA managed the Steele Family Aquatic Center in Washington this summer on a one-year contract with the city. Harkema hopes the contract can be renewed for future years. For the full interview listen to today’s Washington Page.
