Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon to The National Capital Region YMCA-YWCA, with seven locations throughout Ottawa, Clarence-Rockland, Kanata, Nepean, and Orleans. Choose from the following options:
- For $52, you get 10 day-passes (up to a $130 value, including HST).
- For $35, you get a one-month core membership (up to a $70 value, including administration fee and HST).
- For $80, you get a two-month family core membership (up to a $160 value, including HST).
For more than 140 years, the YMCA-YWCA has enhanced the physical and mental well-being of its guests through diverse programming at its expansive facilities. Peruse drop-in group fitness classes such as cardio kickboxing and boot camp, or firm up in cycle-fit classes and low-impact Jello-molding classes. Further amenities include full use of the facilities' strength and conditioning centres equipped with free weights and cardio machines as well as pool access at four locations. A family membership welcomes two adults and their children under 18 years of age to the same benefits while unlocking a host of kid-friendly activities, including the youth zones at the Taggart and Rudy Family Ys, which unbridle creativity among indoor jungle gyms, ball pits, and slides. Those who opt for 10 day-passes can use each flexibly: for personal admission to any participating Y, as gifts to others, or to bring along a clone to feel twice the burn in half the time.
Groupon holders re-pledged to personal fitness after their trial can opt to upgrade to a permanent membership and the YMCA-YWCA will waive the joining fee.
YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region
A community presence in Ottawa for more than 140 years, YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region remains true to its mission of physical and social enrichment for men, women, and kids of all ages across all seven of its facilities. Staff members uphold the YMCA’s core values of honesty, acceptance, and fairness as they invest in their community’s children and strengthen family bonds critically weakened by overzealous games of Monopoly. They pump up adult fitness regimens with aquatic fitness and boot-camp classes, personal training, and full gymnasiums outfitted with equipment for basketball, soccer, and rope skipping. They’ve also filled their fitness centres with free weights, cardio equipment, and weight machines. When they’re not helping adults trim down waistlines during yoga, boxing, and salsa-dance classes, staff members are getting back in touch with their inner children. They stimulate imagination, mental development, and growth as they lead children’s day camps, after-school programs, birthday parties, and outdoor education.
These YMCA-YWCA outposts are dedicated to helping all members of the community. They provide those in need with emergency and youth housing, employment services, and domestic-violence support programs. They further strengthen and unite the Ottawa community through the YActive Assist program, which adjusts membership rates to help families that can’t afford the full cost of any of YMCA’s progressive programs.
