ymca1Red Bank’s Community YMCA Health and Wellness Center on Maple Avenue hosts an Open House event on January 10, part of a statewide initiative to promote positive personal change and good health.

Press release from The Community YMCA

It seems nearly everyone has a “New Year’s resolution,” but statistics indicate that less than a quarter of these resolutions are kept.

Creating personal change takes effort, and support. To encourage individuals and families to make their resolutions a reality, YMCAs across the state have come together to host an Open House event at their local facilities on January 10 — including the Health and Wellness Center of the Red Bank-based Community YMCA.

Families and individuals of all ages are invited to the January 10 event, going on between 9 am and 3 pm. Tours of the facility will be available, and for those who decide to sign up for a membership during the open house, the Y is offering the month of January for free.
