Your trainer will provide education about strength training, cardio endurance and basic nutrition while keeping you motivated and accountable to reach your goals.
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.

OVER $108,000 RAISED
Proving once again that Kankakee County is the most caring, generous community in the region, we want to thank the 370 donors who helped the 2013 Strong Kids Campaign exceed its goal of $100,000. "Thanks to an incredible outpouring of generosity, this year's campaign reached new heights," said 2013 Campaign Chair Bobbi Kinkade. "But the true measure of our success will be seen in the number of lives transformed by the Y's life-changing programs."
Through the Y's commitment to Social Responsibility, more than 2,000 people benefit from the volunteer-led fundraising effort, which ensures that no one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay.
The Y appreciates the 50 volunteers who dedicated their time to the Campaign. They worked tirelessly to make the gift of the YMCA a reality for those who are less fortunate. A special thanks goes to our Strong Kids Campaign chair, Bobbi Kinkade, whose leadership and tireless efforts truly made a difference!
