The Nicol family
Chances are, you’ve seen a member of the Nicol family at the Riverfront YMCA. Since attending a Family Fun Night, they’ve been regulars!
Mandy enjoys Zumba and Wild Card, and also joining husband Brian at the Wellness Center for some personal training. Their daughter, Daphne, attends a Y preschool program, participates in gymnastics, and loves going to Child Watch.
“It feels good walking in and thinking, ‘I belong.’ Everyone is so friendly and welcoming,” said Mandy, who has made friends with many members who support and encourage her.
“It is very much a ‘we,’ not a ‘me’ working out. It’s an ‘us’.”
The Riverfront YMCA offers the Nicol family the opportunity to be active, build relationships, and spend time together as a family.
Mandy says, “A family that plays together stays together.”
