Steve  has been a part of the Y family since January 2015.  When at The Y, Steve enjoys his time in the Wellness Center and Pool.  When asked why he became involved with The Y, he responded, “I wanted to improve my health and physical fitness.  I had gained a lot of weight over the last few years, and I wanted to start feeling better.  I wanted to get back down to my high school football playing weight, and I definitely did, losing 80 pounds in just under 6 months.  I also wanted to challenge myself physically and mentally, which has been excellent over the last 6 months.” 

Steve shared that his favorite Y story is “when I came to the pool to swim 3 continuous miles.  I was able to do it in a reasonable amount of time and I am proud of that accomplishment.  I really enjoyed the support of the lifeguards and other members.  The whole experience was really gratifying.”   He shared that his favorite thing  about the Y is “that it is community-oriented, and is filled with great people.  The staff are great and very responsible.  I have
also built some great friendships of several generations and backgrounds.”

In addition to being an active Member at the Y,  Steve  enjoys riding his longboard on the trails at Sterling State Park.  He also enjoys golfing, spending time with friends and family and focusing on his career.
