Club W: The YWCA Health & Fitness Center, was voted “#1 Place to Work Out” in the Mountain Xpress “Best of WNC” poll. To celebrate this honor, we have been offering free enrollment to Club W. This special ends today, so come on in before 9 pm tonight to join!
What is so special about Club W? Here is what the Xpress had to say:
“To many of the YWCA’s members, the fitness center is one of Asheville’s best-kept secrets. YW folks want to tell you how great it is to be a member, but then maybe they don’t, fearing that their beautiful little exercise bubble will be popped if too many folks discover its charms. You might be familiar with the YWCA’s mission, “to eliminate racism and empower women.” You may have even heard about some of its green practices: the 30 solar panels on the roof heat the showers and pool. But why is it WNC’s best place to work out? Here are five things that you may not know about Club Dub: 1. The “W” actually stands for Welcome Everyone. Okay, I made that up, but it could be true. 2. Really, everyone. Men and women, black and white, young and old, the fitter than thou and the “happy to be here.” You’ll see them all in the workout room. 3. You get a discount if you agree to arrive at the YW by foot, bike or bus. 4. A free triathlon-training group comes with your membership. 5. I teach spin class there and it’s awesomely fun. — B.U.”
