Meet Pat

Pat Artus remembers coming to YWCA New Britain for step aerobic fitness and swimming classes 25 years ago when her children were young.  She said there was a group of mothers who had a babysitting co-op and would take turns watching the children while mothers went to exercise.  “Everyone was so friendly and encouraging, it was nice to bring my kids,” said Pat.

But, being a small business owner, Pat rarely had time for herself.  With so many projects going on at once, her fitness routine fell to the wayside.

Then on a trip to Maui, Hawaii, Pat took a yoga class with her sister-in-law. She liked the class a lot and was curious if the YWCA back home offered anything similar.  She was excited to learn that we did, and re-joined again a couple years ago.  Read more.
