Cole Center Family YMCA offers health and wellness programs

The Cole Center Family YMCA will begin offering a wide range of health and wellness programs at the EMS building on Townline Road in LaGrange beginning Monday, Sept. 16. The expansion of group exercise courses has been made possible through a partnership between Parkview LaGrange Hospital and the Cole Center Family YMCA.

Classes offered in LaGrange will include a toning course entitled “Muscle Works,” group cycling, body shop and a course for seniors, “Active Older Adults.” “We are starting with a strong foundation, but are hoping to expand the offerings as the demand increases and we get to know the needs of the community,” according to Cole Center Family YMCA Health and Wellness Director Ryan Ferguson. “We are always looking for great instructors who can bring unique skills to this project.”

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to serve the LaGrange community and help individuals pursue a healthy lifestyle,” said Casey Weimer, CEO of the Cole Center Family YMCA. “We are fortunate to have partnered with Parkview LaGrange to make this happen. The Parkview LaGrange Foundation was able to secure grant support from the LaGrange County Community Foundation, LaGrange County REMC, South Milford Lions Club, United Fund of LaGrange County, Howe Lions Club, LaGrange Rotary, and LaGrange Delta Theta Tau Sorority. Their support has helped to make this vision a reality.”

Those interested in participating can register in person at the Y in Kendallville, during the first week of classes immediately prior to each class, or online at
