From Our Editors
With a long-standing commitment to women, children, minorities, and social-justice issues, the YWCA is more than just a workout facility. The history of the organization is peppered with groundbreaking programs to bolster race relations, achieve women's empowerment through business ventures, and promote children's health by providing access to physical activity. Other fitness initiatives take place in the YWCA's gyms, where instructors put to use training in Zumba, yoga, and other disciplines. Staff members further the organization's vision with dedication to school-age programs for health and fitness efforts and initiatives to help unemployed community members locate jobs in the area.
