It's Practical!

The new gender shared locker room design is now the standard for new Y construction across the country. This innovative, space-saving concept minimizes the footprint of traditional locker rooms previously requiring double the space, reducing the percentage of the over-all facility and drastically cutting resources to maintain it. The new locker room features a state-of-the-art ventilation system providing better heating, cooling, and humidity control with a much higher energy efficient delivery system. In short, a smaller, more efficient space and fewer mechanical support systems ultimately means less operation costs.

This is a major step toward making necessary improvements and expansions in a facility that is experiencing a growing demand for more aquatics programming, says Peter Militzer, the Y's Director of Healthy Living and Membership.

With water exercise gaining traction for addressing arthritis, pregnancy and obesity, we're now able to better accommodate all who are looking for the benefits of water exercise.
