MATTHEWS – The Brace Family YMCA completed its $1.75 million, two-year facility renovation in October.
The third phase of the renovation included upgrades to the adult locker rooms, sauna and steam rooms and a refreshed Mindbody studio with new programmatic offerings like hot yoga.
Prior phases included a new lobby and community area, expanded fitness spaces, new equipment, functional training space and cycle studio.
The branch, which opened in 1998, serves at least 21,000 people annually.
“The Brace Family YMCA brings together a diverse group of people every day in search of physical, mental and spiritual health,” Executive Director Ben Pinegar said. “We take seriously our role as the community’s hub of activity and wellness, and this renovation represents our unwavering commitment to providing the best for our community.”
