With the smooth, long strokes of a serious and experienced swimmer, Willy swims laps two or three times a week at the Kandiyohi County Area YMCA. His wife, Linda, also enjoys the water and participates in water aerobics classes offered at the Y. Willy first joined a YMCA at the age of 17, and over the years, he has shared his passion for water and swimming by teaching swimming lessons and lifeguarding at various Y's where he's lived. Willy moved to Willmar area around the time that the Y building opened in 2002, so joining a Y again made sense. Plus, no other local fitness centers have a pool! Running is no longer of interest, so Willy enjoys "swimming with the guys" to stay fit.


So why does Willy Y?

“For the pool!”
