FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- It seems nearly everyone has a “New Year’s resolution,” but statistics indicate that less than a quarter of these resolutions are kept.

To encourage individuals and families in our community to make their resolutions a reality and to promote healthy living, the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA will host a TRY THE Y WEEK from January 1-6, 2018. Individuals are invited to experience the Y (or try something new) for free and take an adult or special sampler fitness class or try our youth programming. Advanced registration is encouraged. For a complete listing of TRY THE Y WEEK activities, visit or stop by the Y’s Member Service Desk.

Individuals who join as a member during TRY THE Y WEEK will have the joiner's fee waived. Plus, new members and existing members who scan in that week will be entered to win a free 3-month membership.

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. For information on membership or programs, or to request a schedule of classes, please call the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA at (908) 889-8880 or visit the Y’s website at  Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
