Meet the Y: Mozell

Congratulations to Mozell Stephen, one of our most recent Super Member All-Star Highlight (aka SMASHers) here at East Communities!

At 71 years old, Mozell says she is, “healthy and feeling amazing!”

She has been a Y member for 8 years, and she’s been doing BodyPump for 4 ½ years.

Mozell was nominated by instructor Lauren M. because of her dedication to a healthy lifestyle, and because she is one of the biggest cheerleaders in BodyPump. She is always ready to work hard and motivate others. She helps others set up and get ready to work. You’ll often find her chatting with other members before and after class. She’s a big part of what makes the class feel like a tight-knit community!

“I LOVE it, and wouldn’t change it for anything!” –Mozell

Congrats Mozell! We’ll see you in class!

SMASHers are nominated by staff or other members because they go above and beyond in their efforts & dedication. They are truly an important part of the fabric of our YMCA community, and they deserve some recognition! If you want to leave some encouragement for our SMASHers, stop by our branch and leave a sticky-note of encouragement on the SMASH boards where their bios are on display.
