Once they start, “body pumpers,” as they call themselves, become loyal followers coming to the YMCA approximately 3 times a week for the workouts.
Everyone can attend the open house and try the program for free. Raffle prizes will also be given away, including Gym Bag, Les Mills Yoga Mat, 1 Free Hour of Personal Training, 1 Free Month of Fit Plus Exercise Upgrade.
