The Richmond County Family YMCA believes that its building renovation and fitnasium construction is essential to the health of the community. This principle has inspired it to continue moving forward with the project throughout the pandemic.

Center executive, Shonna Sargent, says, “We are looking forward to opening the new facility in mid-to-late summer. I am very excited about welcoming our members back into the new and improved center. This will be a wonderful resource and allow the YMCA to boost its ongoing service to the community.”

The YMCA is appreciative of architect Randall Kipp for his excellent design and Joe Heyman of the Allen Group for continuing to work on this important project during the crisis. 

As shown in these photos, since the groundbreaking event on March 11, steady progress is being made toward refurbishing current space and creating new fitness areas.

From left to right. Week one saw the installation of new rubber flooring in the wellness center. During week two, the old group exercise walls came down to make way for week three’s installation of the new fitness room. In week four, the new lobby area and the welcome area appeared. And in week five, fresh flooring and carpeting were installed to join the cardio and fitness areas to the new Fitnasium.
