How I gained a new life. A member of the YMCA Wellmont Center recently told me she ran .5 a mile on the treadmill, and I literally gasped. I cannot imagine running for 10 seconds on a treadmill, let alone half a mile, but I know we’re all different. Give me a handful of good friends, and I can run for hours outside, but the thought of running alone on a treadmill sends images into my head of a frustrated hamster on a wheel. That being said, I can’t remember the last time I have done any exercise solo. Group Exercise has been the key in both my weight loss journey, as well as my career path with the Y.

November Celebrates the Kingsport YMCA's 30th Birthday! Birthdays are for celebrating and at the Y we’re looking forward to more of our own and want you to celebrate yours as well! This month the YMCA in Kingsport is celebrating 30 years of serving our community and are so thankful for the healthy years we’ve had to impact kids, adults and families through Afterschool and Day Camp programs, activities and programs for kids with special needs, and health and wellness initiatives for all ages.
