Recently complete! Groom was excited to be back at The Lynch Van Otterloo YMCA to complete the Y's vision of a more modern, contemporary and welcoming facility. Alterations to the lobby included a smaller, circular front desk, sound baffling, a solutions suite where members can meet in private with staff, and a secure gated entry system. One of the major tasks of this renovation was removing the existing two story rock wall to create the new Kids Club on the first floor - parceled off into appropriate learning zones; infant, science and math, teen and creative space zones. A brand new Functional Training area on the second floor was created to include a 50 x 40-foot turf (think tire flipping and sled pulling), TRX and the latest state-of-the-art training equipment. While sad for climbers to let go of the rock, the freed space now offers so much more and elevated the YMCA as a family friendly industry leader in the health and wellness sector.
