Member Highlight: Sean

When Sean first joined the Watertown Area YMCA in 2015, he had a great first impression. Now he’ll tell you he has an even more elevated impression that “stemmed from participating in fitness classes which I didn’t know I needed or wanted when I had initially joined. More specifically, the trainers and instructors – they are dynamite!”

In 2023, Sean had emergency back surgery after suffering severe pain since an injury as a teen. He had to relearn how to walk, taking daily walks around his property to get stronger. As soon as he could, he came to the weight room, not to work out yet, but to see his Y friends, who had been concerned about him.

He is back now on a regular basis, with lifting restrictions of 20 pounds, which is teaching him patience, to say the least! He has been known to have conversations with members about the Packers and once had to do 50 push ups because he lost a bet.

He says “I value how much is added to my day each time I go to the Y. I look forward to seeing the friends that I have there and the equipment itself – I love it!”

Sean enjoys weightlifting, cardio, Moi Cycle, Les Mills BodyPump, Core and BodyBalance as well as making sure he stretches when he is done with his workouts.

We’d love to hear your Y story!
