Even before YMCAs were known worldwide as the easiest organization to spell with your arms, they were known for their original mission of fostering a sense of community through youth development, healthy living, and social-responsibility programs for people of all ages and income levels. The Michiana Family YMCA promotes wellness programs with a full-service gymnasium filled with an arsenal of modern Cybex strength machines, cardio machines, and free weights. Athletes can also stretch muscles within on-site racquetball courts, swim laps inside a 25-yard, six-lane indoor pool, and film re-creations of the 1996 Olympics on the 1/16th-mile outdoor track. The Y organizes youth programs such as summer camps and leadership opportunities and keeps younger tots occupied with childcare services.
