Bob Temple North Side YMCA


I would hope that since the Y is closed because of COVID19 and is still collecting membership dues, that it would continue to pay its staff through this shutdown.

Congratulations to our own lifeguard, Keaton, for being recognized tonight at the Chris Newsom Tournament Opening Ceremony as one of the scholarship recipients! What an amazing honor! ☺️
Missed Rhonda this morning but Jess was great! Wish she had a regular class in the morning like today's.
Can you post your monthly calendar on here please? It is not always available at the center. Since I live 30 miles away, I need to know when you are closed.
What a fun, fabulous crew for my last Friday class!!! Thanks for all the shimmying, shaking and happy sweating over the years. Those of you who were summer-ing and couldn’t attend were missed. Y’all also missed a yummy cake, so there! 😉

Workout Tips from Y Trainer, Jess Johnston:

If your workout is heavy on the cardio side of things, it may be time to change your routine up a bit. Many times, people forget how important weight training can be to your overall workout routine. With cardio you are typically burning more calories during the workout; however, with weight training you continue to burn calories after the workout due to your metabolism most often staying elevated for a longer period of time. If you feel like you are in a rut with your weight loss as well, try adding a bit more weight training to your workout to help build lean muscle. If you are ready to jump into strength training this month, below are a few tips:

- Quality over quantity. With weights it’s important to ensure you are using proper form. Without the proper form, you are wasting your time and more than likely going to end up with an injury. Ask a Personal Training if you need help ensuring you have the right form.
- Weight machines are a great way to get started and become comfortable. Once you get the hang of it, free weights will be an extra challenge. You use more muscle lifting and stabilizing your body with free weights; including engaging your core.
- Remember to breathe! Never hold your breath when lifting. Exhale as you lift and inhale when you release.
- Find an area with mirrors…this is a perfect way to check your form.

Stay positive and be patient with yourself. Remember, we are all individuals and keep in mind: don’t measure your progress using someone else’s ruler!

Our Y Members: Tish

Tish is an active volunteer in our community, but some unhealthy habits led her to the point that she couldn't fully enjoy the things she had always loved doing, like scuba-diving at the aquarium and volunteering at the zoo. With encouragement from her new Y friends and her personal trainer, Monk, she's found her strength at the Y.

"For the first time since before COVID, I've been able to stand up with my (scuba) gear on...the encouragement by the instructors, by the staff here, by other people that come here, is just truly inspirational."

Find your strength. Find your Y.

Yesterday may have been the first day of school, but today is DAY 1 of YMCA After School Programs in 17 Knox County Schools! WE'RE READY!

FREEEEEEEEEE Lifeguard Certification Course!

Pools all across the country are at a critical need for lifeguards, and we don't want the cost of certification to keep you from becoming a lifeguard. We're offering a FREE lifeguard certification course for future or current YMCA of East Tennessee employees. Complete the course and begin your lifeguarding career at the Y! Once you've worked 100 hours or 6 months at a local Y (whichever comes first), your American Red Cross certification is yours to take anywhere to work as a trained rescuer! Spots are limited, so register today at

- In-Water Swimming Test: August 26th
- Lifeguard Course: September 9th-11th
- Location: Davis Family Y, 12133 S. Northshore Dr.*
*This lifeguard training course will be held at our Davis Y, but you will NOT be required to work at the Davis Y for the cost of your certification to be covered. Lifeguard employment opportunities are available in North Knoxville, West Knoxville, Downtown, and East Knoxville.
- Registration: Register for the pre-test to reserve your spot in the course. Upon successful completion of the swimming pre-test, you'll be registered for the full course.

REMINDER: this course is reserved for those intending to work for the YMCA of East Tennessee.

QUESTIONS: Email Thomas McCurry at [email protected] or call the Davis Y at 865-777-9622.

Trainer Tip from Dustin at our Downtown Y: Simplicity & Consistency

Start with simple movements: squat, press, and hip hinge. Don’t feel confident in your form for a back squat? Start with split squats, then progress to air squats, then work up to the bar. Don’t feel confident in chest press? Start with push-ups. If you need to simplify a push-up, start on your knees or press off of a box.

For more from Dustin, check your inbox for your weekly trainer tip. To work with one of our certified personal trainers, visit


Plan ahead! Our 5 YMCA locations will be closed on July 4th, but our West Side Y's Outdoor Pool will be open from 10:30am-4:30pm. Happy Independence Day from your Y!


At the Y, we believe in creating a safe, welcoming community FOR ALL.

To all the dads and father figures in our lives, THANK YOU for being you!

Did you know? The nation's first Father's Day celebration took place on June 19, 1910 at the Spokane YMCA.


Today is Juneteenth — a day of both celebration and reflection in our country.

Though the Emancipation Proclamation was signed on January 1, 1863, it took two and a half years for slaves in the state of Texas to be told of their freedom. Juneteenth is the celebration of the day in the United States when all enslaved individuals became aware of their freedom.


Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Family Fun Day and Car Wash fundraiser on Saturday, June 18th have been cancelled. Thank you for understanding!


With rising temps this week, stay cool by moving your cardio training indoors!

We’ve got:
- Treadmills
- Ellipticals
- Arc Trainer
- Rowers
- Recumbent Bikes
- Spin Bikes
- Nu-Steps
- AMTs
- Assault Bike
…all waiting for YOU at our !
