Tracy's Reason Why

Monday, January 1, 2018

After having four children and abandoning  a once-healthy lifestyle, Tracy wasn't happy with her weight.  Determined to take back her health, her  love for dance led her to discover Zumba classes at the YMCA.  

“As a child, I was very active and participated in activities like cheerleading and marching band,” Tracy said. “I decided I could no longer allow my former active life to be a thing of the past.”;

Tracy joined Weight Watchers and the YMCA, where she took Zumba and other group fitness classes in pursuit of her goals. 

Her reason why 

“The Y inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things in pursuit of better health,” Tracy said. “I suddenly had so much willpower, I shredded 80 pounds." 

She  not only lost 80 pounds, she’s maintained a healthy weight by making health and wellness a lifestyle.

Tracy says the Y is the total package.

“It’s  a place for the whole family where everyone is welcome,” she said.  “My husband has joined me in the quest for fitness and we are working on our boys to join in, too.” 

Today Tracy is a licensed  Zumba instructor, helping others  realize  their reason why.
