Derek is a member at the Farmington Valley YMCA. His story is just one of the many stories of individuals who have been impacted by the Membership for All program at the YMCA of Greater Hartford.

"Here’s a question for you: have you ever had the experience of walking up a single flight of stairs on a fair weather day and notice that you’re sweating before you have even reached the top? That’s where my story starts. I was a ten-year smoker and more than 50 pounds overweight. I lived a very sedentary life. Smoke, eat, and sit day in, day out. Yeah, the sweating before I reached the top of the steps thing? Not a big surprise.

People say they have their “aha” moments. For me, that one trip up the stairs made me think “Duh! Why am I doing this to myself?”

So I joined the Y. In 8 months, I have lost over 50 pounds. I’ve gone from a size 40 to a 34! The staff at the Y is very accessible and wants to help. Whether it’s Emily making it a point to see me and tell me what a great job I’m doing or Eugenia stopping me as I pass by the front desk to check in – even once printing out the picture they took of me when I joined to show how far I’ve come (yeah, you can burn that now)— everyone here has been very kind and supportive.

I am forever grateful to the Y for allowing me to access the tools and support I have needed to become a healthier individual. I am also grateful that the Y has a program for those who cannot afford the full membership rate to become members at a lower rate. This year, I opted to voluntarily increase my membership each month. I realize my small increase isn't much, but if it helps, even in a small way, give the Y a chance to let someone else have the same opportunities I have had, it is certainly worth it."
