Allen Mendell

I have been a Y member since moving to Northbrook in 1980. I have brought my sons and their friends for swimming and open gym while they were growing up. They also went to the great summer camps. I love the YMCA for the family atmosphere and diversity of people and all the different age groups from young children to seniors like me. The people that work there are always cheerful and helpful. I have been in the Workout Buddy program for a year now and really had enjoyed it. My hobbies are working out, gardening, walking my dogs, handball, and going to our farm in Jo Davies county.

Joe Giorango 

Joe started BODYPUMP in May of 2017 and continues to attend the classes three to four times a week. 

"I must say I was a little apprehensive about the class because, to be honest, I didn't think I was in very good shape. After my first few classes, I realized the class is geared toward everyone no matter what skill levels and you get to work at your own pace. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and show a real interest in helping everyone succeed and obtain their goals."

Joe has begun taking GRIT classes and finds the classes to be very helpful in attaining good health.

"Both BODYPUMP and GRIT classes are really for everyone. I guarantee anyone taking the classes will feel better about themselves and will continue to notice an improvement in their health and well-being. I hope the BODYPUMP and GRIT classes will continue to remain an important part of the workout and conditioning programs of the YMCA."

 Sheedy Family 

The North Suburban YMCA is a huge part of our family’s life. Our daughters, who are 9 and 7, have been attending NSYMCA’s summer camps and after-school Y-Time program since they were in kindergarten and pre-kindergarten.  Caitlin and Arianna have literally grown up in the North Suburban YMCA.  They have participated in gymnastics, ballet, jazz dance, piano, tap, computer, magic and cooking classes at NSYMCA.  But more than the many activities and learning opportunities and fun that we have all had at NSYMCA, our daughters have had wonderful counselors, teachers, and caregivers who have been great role models and inspirations to our girls.  And, through all of these years, our daughters simply think that they are having fun growing up in a great community of people. But, we know that they are learning life lessons and creating friendships that will be important for the years to come.

I love the Y because I keep losing weight. I like doing my own routine. 

I really like working out with my Y Buddy!

 

George T Karkazis

I have been a member of the North Suburban YMCA for a period exceeding 25 years, and I make every attempt to be present six days per week, and more often than not, I arrive prior to the opening of the building.

The facility is first rate with modern equipment and machines It has everything that an up to date health club wants or needs. It is always spotlessly cleanand staff is always present if an emergency arises. The staff is friendly and accommodating and my fellow members are solid citizens and amongst my finest friends.

The relationships that I have developed with my fellow members these past 25 years would be extremely difficult to duplicate in any other environment. The goodwill atmosphere of the club and members promotes lasting friendships of the highest quality.

It was, indeed, my good fortune on that very first day when I walked into the North Suburban YMCA Building in Northbrook, Illinois.

   QUOTE: “The YMCA has always been there for my familyand for my community.  “

We moved to Northbrook in the late 1970s and immediately began to look for a place for our kids to play and learn.  The YMCA filled that need – whether it was     gymnastics or soccer, ballet or swimming.  Actually, it was all about the         swimming! My kids learned to swim at the Y; then they learned how to compete.       And when it was time to find a Swim Club and a Trainer, I reached out to the         YMCA and they stepped up, putting together a Parent run program and finding            someone who would coach and mentor not just my children but all the others who wanted the same thing.

Today, I still use the Y as do my grandchildren.  Northbrook just wouldn’t be the same if the YMCA wasn’t right where it is. The YMCA has always been there for my family and for my community.  It looks for the need and then fills it.  The Y doesn’t hesitate; they just do it.

ABOUT OUR SPECIAL OLYMPICS SWIM TEAM

The North Suburban YMCA’s “Flying Turtles” Swim Team achieved outstanding success in the Special Olympics District Swim Meet, held in Lake Forest, Illinois on March 19. By the end of the event, the team had collected a total of 21 medals, and nine team members had qualified to compete in the Special Olympics Illinois State Games in June. Just as importantly, every swimmer experienced the satisfaction and excitement of facing challenges and surpassing expectations.

Now in its third year at the North Suburban YMCA, the Flying Turtles Swim Team currently includes almost 30 swimmers. Coached by Tom March, the Y’s lead instructor for special needs services, the team brought home 13 gold medals, four silvers, and four bronzes from the March 19 meet. Nine of the swimmers qualified for the State Games, which will be held on June 10. Each participant gained the confidence and accomplishment of competing at a major meet with 20 other teams and enjoyed celebrating the team’s success together. A video created by March shows the pride felt by the team and their families.

“Every swimmer did an amazing job,” notes March. “Whether they were awarded with a first place medal or a participant ribbon, you could just see how they all beamed with their accomplishments. This year was the biggest showing that the North Suburban Y has ever had at the District meet, and we have a record number of swimmers going on to the Special Olympics State Games. I couldn’t be prouder of these swimmers and all they’ve achieved.”
