Read how working at the Y isn't just a job for Karen:
I was a grad student in the early 2000’s that wanted to stay healthy and exercise but could barely afford tuition, rent and gas. The Mission Viejo YMCA in Southern California gave me financial assistance on top of the student rates so I could have a place to work-out while I was in school. Funny … since I usually had my late mornings free, I typically ended up taking the silver sneakers group classes when I wanted to do a class! Lots of fun.
