Doctors Orders: Visit the Y

Doctor's Orders: Visit the Y

Dr. Art Grossman has been a YMCA member and local family practitioner for more than three decades. When the Y added an indoor cycling program, Art offered his knowledge of cycling training, becoming an instructor for indoor cycling classes.

“Preparing for cycling class is quite a bit of work,” Art says. His class includes a variety of levels of cyclers, many of whom credit Art’s expertise and assistance for getting them to where they need to be for big rides. Both at the Y and his medical practice, he enjoys helping people reach their fitness goals. His prescription for his patients: their local Y.

“For more than 35 years the Y has enhanced my life, and I encourage others to come here as well. The Y makes an effort to create lasting relationships with their members and provide a friendly environment. That is what draws me here and keeps me coming back.”


At the Y, we exist to strengthen community. Together with people like you, we nurture the potential of kids, help people understand and improve their health, and provide opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.
