SUMMIT, NJ – While nearly everyone has a New Year’s resolution, statistics indicate that less than a quarter of these resolutions are kept. The Summit Area YMCA will be helping residents buck that trend by hosting an Open House event January 10 designed to encourage individuals and families to make their resolutions a reality.
From 8 a.m. through 2 p.m. activities will include Tours, Family Swim, Barre Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Training Day, Guided Meditation, Les Mills launch of Sha'bam and Body Combat, Family Zumba, Face Painting, and Arts & Crafts for kids.
Creating personal change takes effort, and support. , YMCAs across the state have come together for the first time and agreed to hold an Open House event at their local facilities on January 10.
Kieltyka added, "We’re a health and wellness and community organization that supports individuals and families to reach their goals. This year, we’re taking things even further with a free, state-wide event hosted by dozens of YMCAs to promote healthy change at their individual locations. We welcome all.”
Because personal change can be difficult, the Summit YMCA has noted some important steps to help maintain a healthy fitness routine:
Write it Down
Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable
- Get outside your comfort zone: If change were easy, more people succeed.
Don’t Do it Alone
