Le Mars YMCA Can Assist With New Year’s Resolutions


(Le Mars) — At the start of each new year, many people make resolutions.  Among the more popular resolutions are to lose weight and perhaps get more exercise.  The Le Mars Community Wellness Center and YMCA assists local people with achieving those resolutions.  Joyce Feuerhelm is the Membership and Marketing Manager with the local YMCA.  She says the Y generally does see an increase in membership during January.

Feurerhelm says once spring arrives, YMCA membership usually sees a slight decline as people tend to walk outside and do more outside activities.

The YMCA official says while many members enjoy exercising on their own, others prefer to work out in a group setting.

Despite being shut down for a few months due to the COVID-19 virus, Feurerhelm says membership is trending upward over past years.

Feurerhelm says the local YMCA membership is over 500 units.

Feurerhelm tells of the many and varied fitness programs that are offered at the Le Mars YMCA.

Feurerhelm says the Community Wellness Center offers programs for all ages and interests.
