Has anyone tried joining the YMCA? - Updated
I'm thinking about joining the YMCA to help with my sanity. We took a tour of the facility this afternoon. The tour guide told me that they have an inclusion specialist that works in the childcare rooms and that they have another non-verbal toddler that attends. They said that we can have up to 2 hours per day of childcare with our membership and that for an extra fee ($15) we're allowed to leave the building for 3 hours. They also have "date night" once per month.
I'm not really a "fitness" type of person, but I might be willing to work out if it means I get a break from my son. I love him to death, but I really really need some "me" time. They have a hot tub and a pool, and I guess I could take an art class or something if I wanted to. I think that my son would enjoy going in the pool. He's a year and a half, by the way.
I was also thinking that my husband and I could try to find something to do together at the facility during the week, like *attempt* to play basketball or something. Agan, we're not really the athletic type, but we're getting a little desperate here.
Has anyone joined the YMCA (or anything like it)? What was your experience like?
