Thanks To Sylvie Johnson At YMCA

Dear Editor,

I would like to give a shout out to the amazing and daring, Health & Wellness Director of the YMCA, Sylvie Johnson, who took on the difficult task of creating an outstanding six-week fitness/nutrition program for our Los Middle School students.

She and her staff made activities accessible to all students such as working with trainer Wolfgang Dworzak, during “middle school tailored” exercise classes ( Esther, Deniece, Ann, Lynn, Sarah), and cooking classes with Desaree Jimenez. Desaree and her staff catered to perhaps the kids who aren’t athletes and gave them guidance and direction to further their own personal health goals.

I can’t thank all of them enough for all the time and effort they put into this.

Beth Bathrick
