Dash in the Bash 2016
The 2016 Dash in the Bash 5KRace will take place on Saturday, June 18, at 8:45 am located at the Wabash County YMCA. We will be running the same course as last year which includes a section of the scenic downtown Wabash and the Wabash City Park. Race participants also have a chance to win door prizes, with a Garmin running watch as our top prize!
We will be having the team competition again this year that will allow businesses, groups, and organizations to form teams. These teams can be competitive or they can be created just for fun. We encourage teams to create matching shirts to show their team unity and support.
Working out can be a challenge. Katie Fleshood can help you with that! She has had a successful beginning as our newest Personal Trainer at the Wabash County YMCA. Katie earned her Personal training degree from AFAA and coaches gymnastics as well. There are many reasons she enjoys being a trainer, but one of her favorites is watching her clients grow mentally and physically. Building relationships with her clients and being tough, yet making them feel comfortable along their journey to improvement, are goals she thrives to meet. Contact the YMCA for more details.
NEW CLASS! POUND WILL BE WEDNESDAY'S at 5:30 PM in the Blue Gym.
POUND- Pound is a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics and Isometric poses into a 45-minute series. Burn between 400 and 900+ calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles, and drum your way to a leaner, slimmer physique – all while rocking out to your favorite music.
