Keeping Communities Healthy

Dear Hobart Family YMCA Community,

Over the last week, you may have heard of the Coronavirus that is raising health concerns across the globe. According to Center for Disease Control (CDC), the general public in the U.S. is at low risk of contracting the 2019-nCoV.

As with any newly emerging infectious disease, knowledge evolves with time and recommendations are changing rapidly. We are closely monitoring information from public health officials and will follow their prevention guidelines to help keep our facilities clean and community safe.

Should this issue escalate in our community, the Y will take necessary precautions to ensure that our staff and community are safe. We’ve educated our staff and are practicing additional hygiene and cleaning practices to ensure that our facilities and program locations remain safe.

These general practices are also in place for YMCA staff and participants:

  • Frequent hand washing is encouraged and practiced with warm water and soap
  • Cough and sneeze etiquette is encouraged (cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash)
  • Common areas are frequently cleaned including frequent cleaning of door handles, fitness equipment, lockers, tables/countertops, phones and other common “high-touch” items in each Y facility.
  • Hand sanitizer is available in our facility.
  • YMCA staff, members and participants are asked to stay home when ill (and to remain home for 24 hours after symptoms have disappeared if the illness is flu-like or gastrointestinal)

If you would like more information on the Coronavirus, please refer to

Please be sure to check in on neighbors to ensure they are ok. In times like this social isolation is more common. A simple phone call can go a long way. Thank you for working with us to ensure our community is safe and welcoming.

Stress Management – Thursday, February 6th

We all have stress – it is inevitable. It is how we manage it that makes a difference. When you find that stress is making you crazy or causing health problems or perhaps it is impacting your work or home life or you are getting sick a lot, then it is time to put stress in its place. In this workshop, we will take a look at ways to reduce stress and manage stress better for a happier, more workable life. I promise you will find at least two new things to try that you have not thought of before. Each participant will complete a customized plan for addressing their unique stress situation.

Planning Meals for Optimal Health and Energy – Thursday, April 2nd

You’ve heard the statistics: we eat healthier and less expensively when we prepare meals at home. But with busy schedules, it is hard to find time to shop and cook every day. That’s where this workshop can help. It’s all about my favorite topic – FOOD. Our food is our body’s energy source. When we make good food choices we have more energy to get through the day. In this workshop you will get ideas and tools to plan healthy, delicious meals for whoever you cook for. We will discuss batch cooking, quick and easy sides, how to get more veggies into your life, cooking methods, and even healthy dessert ideas. You will leave with a plan for one week of meals AND easy recipes PLUS ideas and tools to make great food easily at home.

Note: This class is helpful for people of all cooking skill levels. Whether you are single, cooking for one, two or a large family, this class will help you plan, shop and get ideas for choosing healthy, easy foods to boost your energy.

Your Keys to a Great Night’s Sleep – Thursday, May 7th

Good sleep is vital for our overall health and when we are sleep deprived, there are many negative impacts on our health. Many factors can impact our sleep and each person’s experience is unique. In this workshop we will take a look at some of the main culprits that keep us from getting a restful night of sleep PLUS tools and ideas to help YOU get more sleep. We will discuss everything from caffeine to insomnia to stretching to meditation and even a couple home remedies that are safe and helpful to getting good sleep. You will leave with a customized plan of action to help you get more Zzzzzzzz’s.
