The Palisades-Malibu YMCA has expanded its hours for members, making machines and weights available from 7 to 11 a.m. and from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Circling the News visited the gym on Friday and there were several clients working out with weights and on the aerobic machines. One has to fill out a waiver and be temperature checked when entering the facility at 821 Via da la Paz.
Palisades Y Executive Director James Kirtley said, “Thank you to all of those who have supported Your Palisades Y. I often refer to the Palisades YMCA as ‘Your Pali Y’ because it truly is the community’s Y.
“We recently received feedback on the hours of Your Y through a survey,” he wrote to CTN on May 14. “We did our due-diligence and from that information made the appropriate adjustments to our operating hours. Your Y will be open Monday-Friday from 7 to 11 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m. Also, we are very grateful for the partnership with Palisades High School. I’m so excited for the Y to have the opportunity for Y’s members to swim again!”
There are lanes open for YMCA members on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, at either 5:45 or 6:45 a.m. in the small, warmer pool. If a member wants to swim (or take a fitness class in Simon Meadow), download the Y app and follow the instructions. If a member has a problem with the app, the helpful Y staff can assist at (310) 454-5591.
