Sauna Thermostat woes…
We are in contact with the manufacturer of the heating unit and are currently installing a small fan under the heating unit as we believe we need more air flow going across the sauna’s high limit sensor. This fan is to run continuously. We’ll keep you posted with additional information.
Can’t We Kick at Half-Time?...
Safety is our primary concern for all during soccer time. The younger players and coaches often remain on the field during half time and to ensure their safety, we have ceased half-time goal kicking.
Going Above and Beyond...
Julie O’Neil, our Financial Officer, received a special thank you from the Executive Director of the Hill Y in Westminster, for her efforts to ensure that swimmers reached the Queen City Classic Meet on January 28. One of the visiting swimmers and family experienced car trouble and were stranded at the Downtown Y. Julie arranged transportation and checked back in with the family later in the day to ensure they were ok to get home. Thanks, Julie!
Join our new Enhance Fitness® class held at the Ridgely Community Center at 11:00am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. For more information on the class stop by the Welcome Center or visit our website (www.cumberlandymca.org).
ALL Instructors on deck...
Thanks for your feedback about our aquatic instructors teaching from deck policy. This policy is in place to enhance the safety and execution of your exercise class experience. Teaching from deck (or from the front of the room) allows all participants to have a clear visual of the technique/move and for the instructor to provide safe tips to help prevent participant injury. It is a standard of Group Fitness classes to have the instructor in a visible and accessible location.
Running a bit late?
Please be considerate of other members’ class experience. If you are running a bit late for a class, minimize the disruption to the class aura by entering quietly. Classes begin and end at a set time to optimize our workout time. Reap the benefits of the full workout and arrive a bit early to set up your space and equipment.
It feels TOO COLD in …
We appreciate your feedback about the indoor temperature ranges you experience in different parts of our facility. One area had a malfunctioning thermostat and we discovered that at times the weight room section of the wellness center was receiving 60 degree air. A replacement part and an adjustment of the programmable thermostat should put this problem behind us.
Although we have temperature variations in different parts of our facility, we try to keep our wellness center at a temperature which is comfortable for working out. With people exercising, we keep our settings in the upper sixties and that is lower than many non-active areas. Some individuals have found that wearing a top layer of clothing is helpful until their exercise routine warms them up.
Caution! Slippery When Wet.
Cleanliness and safety are priorities in the wellness center. Our wellness staff mops the weight room area early in the day and the cardio room area late in the day although this mopping schedule will adjust due to activity.
Let’s Play Together!
Thanks for the request for “Mommy & Me” classes. We do offer “Mommy & Me” time in the pool and are working to develop other classes.
Some like it hot….some like it HOT!!
Thanks for the feedback on the steam room temperature and condition. The temperature is at 105 which falls right in the middle of YMCA Steam Room Temperature standards (100 – 110 degrees).
