Are you looking for a place to work out as a family? The DeLand Family YMCA may be the right choice. Indoor and outdoor pools, amenities for kids, group classes, certified personal trainers and more. For more information, visit http://www.vfymca.org.
Maybe a gym full of weights and machines seems too intimidating to you. You might consider rock climbing or boxing as a way to break free from the typical workout.
DynoClimb (528 S. Woodland Blvd) has rock walls with walls ranging from 16 to 25 feet high. They accommodate multiple types of climbing. Co-Owner Britt Frankel says climbing is more than just a physical challenge of ascending a wall. Climbing paths are called “problems” and climbers must figure out their moves ahead of time to find the most efficient route up the wall. In addition to the rock climbing stations, DynoClimb offers yoga and fitness classes. For more information, check out their website at www.dynoclimb.com.
DeLand Boxing & Fitness says “You don’t have to be a boxer to train like one”. From kickboxing to Kids boxing, even an amateur boxing team, the schedule at DBF has options for all levels of boxers. Started by Trevor Cedar in 1998, DBF focuses on offering a full-body workout in an environment that isn’t intimidating like most boxing gyms.
