YSS Partners with Athletic Club of Ames

YSS has partnered with the Athletic Club of Ames (ACA) to provide wellness programming for its youth participants and staff. The partnership comes as the ACA celebrates the opening of its new facility.

The Athletic Club of Ames offers weekly fitness services for YSS youth participants. The opportunity for weekly fitness reduces stress, builds confidence, and increases motivation, which helps the youth on their road to recovery.

“We’re so grateful for our partnership with ACA as it is huge for our organization. Days at the gym with their staff are some of the best days for YSS kids and have created a huge boost in confidence,” said Andrew Allen, YSS President and CEO.

With the partnership between YSS and the Athletic Club of Ames, YSS staff are also eligible for free membership as part of a new wellness program, with free 24/7 access to the gym and its facilities.

The new ACA location, which can be found at 300 South 17th Street Ames, Iowa, features state of the art facilities for all members. With multiple levels, this 24-hour access gym offers health coaches, personal trainers, group fitness instructors, and an in-house physical therapy clinic operated by Home Team Physical Therapy.

“We are excited to have a new location inside the Athletic Club who shares a similar vision and mission to provide a multi-dimensional wellness environment for active people wanting to live and move without limitations or pain,” said Dr. Megan Burt, physical therapist and co-owner of Home Team.

YSS appreciates its partnerships within the community, such as the ACA, that support our mission and promote the well-being of our youth.
