"I feel that every new JCC administration has been better than its predecessors have. That is true of the JCC as a whole and particularly true of the Health and Fitness Department. New classes and new instructors have contributed to an outstanding operation. I am very pleased with my own experience with the balance lessons I am taking under your guidance. I feel that I am making considerable progress and hope to become even more proficient. Thank you for your expert help." - David Sims (age 94)
"The JCC is not just a place I love to take my favorite kickboxing class, workout in the gym, or swim in the indoor pool. It's not just the place I go to be with my very best of friends. It's not just a place I go to get the latest books at the Book fair or see a recent movie at the Jewish Film festival, To me, it is all those things and so much more. I love being at The J and getting involved to bring our Jewish community together! "
"Twenty-five years ago, when I joined the JCCNV I enrolled in a small exercise class where I met a group of women who I now call my "best friends". We have been together for many birthday celebrations, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and now weddings and funerals. We still meet together 2 -3 times a week for a hard workout of kickboxing, spinning, weights, swimming and coffee. My day or my body would not be complete without my morning at the J with the girls. These friendships and the J are my life.."
"Since I retired five years ago I have attended fitness classes daily at the J and I can't say enough about what they have done for me. The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable, instructive, caring, warm and friendly. I look forward to starting my day with a good workout in a positive, accepting environment that continues to challenge my fitness level while interacting with friends from the community." -Esther Levitan
"The 'J' has become a fixture in my life and highlight of my days I spend there. After a "triple bypass" I had let my physical side slip. Shorty after becoming a JCC member I enrolled in "one on one" training with Matt in your gym facility. Thanks to the twice a week work-outs with Matt and my regular attendance of at least 5 days a week to the center my physical and mental abilities have improved 80%. My physical strength, stamina and well being has greatly improved. I credit my improvement to Matt's understanding, his patience and caring with myself and my needs. He does not just do this with me but with each person that he comes into contact with." -Earl Perry
“At a routine check, my Cardiologist practically jumped in the air, clicked his heels, and turned somersaults, he was so elated with my 110/68 blood pressure reading today. He just said it's going to make such a difference over the long-term if I keep up my exercise. He was also very pleased because I have made changes. Most of his patients in their 60's and 70's don't, he said. So, thank you, for a life-giving plan.” —Anne A., 71
“I have been working with a personal trainer at the J for the last 5 years and have had incredible results! I’ve increased my muscle mass, endurance, and bone density! I’m sleeping better, eating healthier, have more energy, and I’m able to maintain my active lifestyle thanks to my strength and core training routine!” —Mary C., 70
“My trainer at the J encourages all levels of fitness and has contagious enthusiasm. Her gentle way of offering alternatives shows an understanding of the mature body, while preserving one’s pride.” —Myrna B., 68
