YMCA Helps Individuals and Families Succeed this Year with Creative New Year’s Resolutions

In the coming weeks, millions of Americans will tackle the annual ritual of making New Year’s resolutions. Eat better, exercise more, lose weight, quit smoking—these are among the perennial favorites. Some will succeed, some will stumble and others, come March, will join the ranks of those vowing to try again next year. What is the secret to New Year’s resolution success? Not going it alone!

This year, the YMCA of the USA is encouraging families to put a new twist on the old custom and make resolutions for 2012 together as a family. We have worked for more than 150 years to build strong families, and see first hand, the power of a supportive community and family in achieving goals.

If you are looking for help achieving your goals, the Y is a great place to start.

  • Schedule a free visit to try the Y
  • Check out classes for every member of the family from parent/child classes for infants/toddlers to specialty classes for youth, adults and seniors
  • Meet with a trainer and get a fitness assessment
  • Enjoy family “together time” by swimming or playing basketball
  • Check out a variety of volunteer opportunities
  • Take advantage of safe, affordable and quality pre-school and school-age child care from the nation’s largest child care provider
  • Learn about financial aid opportunities that help all families participate in Y programs

Winter classes begin on January 2, 2012. Registration is now open. Visit our website at for a complete listing of classes and programs or stop invto sign up for a class or take a tour of the facility. Find out today why the Y isn’t just a place to join, it’s a place to belong.

The YMCA of Darke County is a non-profit membership association of over 4,000 members with facilities in Greenville and Versailles. The mission of the YMCA of Darke County is to develop the whole person – spirit, mind and body – through character development programs that reinforce Christian principles and that build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.
