The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility." This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.

Learning happens on the court at Wynn Sports Academy. That's because the academy trades books for basketballs and volleyballs, instilling sports skills alongside life skills such as teamwork and discipline. Their basketball day camp pairs players ages 8?17 with high school and college coaches who teach techniques such as ball passing and shooting. The volleyball camp, which is helmed by the head coach of Curry College's women's volleyball team, challenges students with twice-daily games that boost their serving and volleying abilities alongside their self-confidence.

The team at Clubex Fitness & Nutrition believes that when it comes to diet and exercise, success is a team effort. Thankfully, the trainers host about 30 different group exercise classes every week, ranging from spinning, kickboxing, and Zumba to a Kick Your Butt boot camp. Those looking for a more specialized approach can work one-on-one with personal trainers that help clients design custom exercise plans. Of course, the facility also allows for clients to exercise on their own. Clubex makes solo workouts easy with its more than 75 pieces of cardio equipment, more than 100 pieces of strength equipment, and about 10 tons of free weights, which keep the gym from blowing away during storms. And if that lengthy list of equipment isn't enough, Clubex also offers boxing and karate rooms, basketball and racquetball courts, and even an outdoor obstacle course that doubles as an auto shop in case you need new tires. Onsite babysitting makes it even easier to enjoy a productive workout, and afterward clients can refuel at the facility's full-service juice bar.
