The YMCA aims to better Denver-area minds and bodies with fitness classes, sports leagues, and exercise facilities for users of all ages. Membership (an $84 value) grants full access for two adults, their dependent children, and as many imaginary friends they can think up. Members enjoy use of top-notch amenities that vary by location, ranging from free-weight and resistance-machine workout rooms to swimming pools and basketball courts. Outgoing endurance-testers come together during athletic classes to create a calorie-consuming hive mind unattainable to solo toners. New members in need of assistance achieving fitness goals plan out nutritional and exercise routines in their two wellness sessions (a $100 value). Personal-wellness coaches develop a distinct program for each client to help prospective workout warriors evaluate their overall health, identify specific places to improve, and build muscles regardless of superfluous zoning restrictions.
