RED BANK, NJ – The newly re-named Red Bank Family YMCA, located at 166 Maple Avenue, certainly lived up to its name on Saturday with their Open House.
Laurie Goganzer, President and CEO, said, “We renamed this branch the Red Bank Family YMCA because we want folks to know that we’re for families. We’re inclusive, no one is turned away. We raise money every year so we can say “Yes” to people who need the Y services the most.”
And they came by the hundreds with many taking a personalized guided tour of the facility where they saw a first-class organization offering two weight rooms, steam/sauna rooms, a 6-lane lap swimming and warm therapeutic pool and whirlpool spa.
Tired of the treadmill? Cruise around their upper-deck indoor running/walking track, overlooking the full gymnasium with SportWall, where you can watch your kids and parents play.
Included with their very reasonable fees are unrivaled adult locker rooms with amenities that includes towel service.
Like to mix up your exercise routine? They Y offers over 100 free interchangeable group cycling, mind/body, aquatic & land fitness classes.
Wait, there’s more! They’ve expanded their exercise studios, have a dedicated wellness space for workshops, a welcoming lobby with coffee bar and Wi-Fi, and a spacious, always-supervised Child Watch Center – where they just don’t watch your kids, but interact with them.

“The Y is more than just a gym, and that’s what really makes us different. There’s a lot of places that the community can go to, but I believe that by joining the YMCA you’re going to be doing more that helping yourself physically get fit. We’re also here for the spiritual, mental and social side of your life", said Goganzer.”
New programs offered at the Y are: Monthly Parents Night Out, free weekly group fitness classes including Family Zumba, and Pound; a music and a movement program for the whole family.
The Y has a swim team that is nationally ranked first place last year. To watch a video of a swim meet, click HERE.
Goganzer passionately and succinctly summarized her feelings: “By joining the Y you’re helping the community be stronger. We’re about building friendships and finding a place to feel a sense of belonging. When families are stronger, the communities are stronger.”
Get off the couch, turn off the TV and get your kids noses out of their smartphones. Experience a 145-year-old institution that offers something for everyone in your family.
