The Muskegon Family YMCA serves its community with fitness facilities and classes open to youngsters and adults alike. Facilities include workout rooms, indoor courts, and outdoor playing fields along with a fully equipped locker room featuring saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs. In workout studios, instructors lead many adult- and youth-fitness classes throughout the week, and swim coaches captain lessons, swim-team practices, and exercise sessions in the indoor pool. When parents work out, experts keep a close eye on their kids in the nursery, ensuring they won't don fake beards to run off and join a gang of lumberjacks.
A sprawling, mirrored studio envelops Gym Bumz guests in confines fit for an array of cardio, strength, and stretch-centric group fitness classes. Classic spin sessions place cyclists atop stationary bikes to chart a course chock-full of sprints and hills, and Zumba promotes a festive atmosphere as participants engage in simple dancercise moves that come choreographed to Latin rhythms and conjugations. To build extra bulk, BodyPump equips participants with barbells for a 60-minute squat, press, lift, and curl regimen timed to the beat of energizing tunes. Round out any intense session with a relaxing yoga class, which pairs deep breathing with lengthening pose-work to calm the mind, chisel the core, and tame the spirit animal.
Moonlight pools in the gym’s entryway as the nighttime visitor stops to fumble for her keycard. It’s 3 a.m. She worked the night shift again and wants to work off some tension. Her fingers grasp the small plastic card and with a quick swipe, she’s inside. Immediately enveloped by the warm glow of Snap Fitness, she joins the other late-night exercisers in pounding on the treadmill and lifting weights before the sun rises.
