KAY BEYER Kay is new to the world of Personal Training, but not new to personal fitness. After raising four kids and working full-time in the corporate world for 20 plus years, she has stayed healthy through it all! She understands that juggling priorities and making the choice to be fit is not easy, and has adopted a philosophy of BALANCE. “Adding exercise to your routine, no matter how little or much, will improve other areas of your life. It’s not what you see in the mirror, but what you FEEL inside that makes daily exercise worth it. Our society emphasizes physical beauty, but a healthy body glows no matter what shape you are.” Kay specializes in Yoga, Pilates and Core strength training. Whether it’s your first step, or your 501st, Kay is excited to share it with you! Together, you might just find the joy in fitness.

Y INSTALLS NEW POOL UV SYSTEM
The Kankakee Area YMCA has installed three ProMinent Ultraviolet (UV) Systems into its pool water treatment process. UV systems are a powerful tool in the fight against algae, germs, bacteria, and microscopic parasites (i.e. Cryptosporidium and Giardia). When used in conjunction with sand filters it keeps pool water healthy and sparkling! In addition, the treatment of swimming pool water by means of a UV system effectively reduces the level of chloramines, the chemical smells that we associate with indoor swimming pools. Our new UV systems provide the cleanest, safest and most comfortable pools in the area!
To learn more about UV systems, checkout the attached video report from Medford, Oregon.
