Why the Y

  • Y Ninja Fit—It’s a Hit!

    Friday afternoons at 4:30 p.m. are a blast for 13 boys enrolled in Y Ninja Fit for Teens at the Madison Area YMCA. The Gymnastics Center is abuzz with the boys running, climbing and jumping over and under obstacles. (Where are you, girls? This is open to you too!)

    Teens experience the best of both worlds in this one-hour combination class of obstacle course training and fitness training. The first 30 minutes takes teens through a classic Y Ninja class—climbing towers of mats, scaling the warped wall, dropping down to hit the ground running to race through courses that build coordination and motor control, test physical strength, instill discipline and push agility to new heights. In the second half hour, teens hit the circuits and learn fitness skills that enhance their Ninja skills and start them on the path to life-long healthy living. 

    “I like Y Ninja Fit because it's fun and I get to hang out with my friends,” says Dylan Gregory, 13, of Madison. The equipment is really cool—the foam pit is my favorite—and the teachers are really nice.”
