At each of our Down East Family YMCA locations, we have a lot of enthusiastic and knowledgable people who are passionate about improving the lives of members of our community.
Meet Samantha: Wiggins Fitness Instructor
I started at the Y as a member several years ago. I had dabbled with fitness on and off throughout the years and fell in love with the early morning classes. They just fit in my life the best.
A couple years ago the Y was looking for someone to substitute for instructors when someone was sick or had an appointment. I was going in to workout every morning anyway so I decided, why not?
I loved filling in and teaching whenever I could, and as soon as I was asked, if I wanted to instruct my own class, I jumped at the opportunity. I obtained my instruction certificate online and have been teaching my own class since April. Every Tuesday we are either in the gym or TRX room at 5:45am. All levels are welcome to join us!
You will still see me filling in whenever I can, volunteering for races and occasionally participating in the races. I am excited to be part of the Y family!
