ST Medical Monday: It's All About Health, Exercise, and Fitness at the Tandy Family YMCA

Mar 27, 2017

On this edition of ST Medical Monday, we learn about the newly renovated Tandy Family YMCA (at 5005 S. Darlington Avenue). This impressive new facility, per the YMCA of Greater Tulsa website, "is a YMCA for the next generation. More than 110,000 square feet dedicated to the pursuit of healthy living and community-building [comprise] this state-of-the-art facility...[which was] built on the grounds of the 50-year-old Thornton Family YMCA, one of the anchors of midtown Tulsa. In collaboration with the OU Physicians Center for Exercise and Sports Medicine, and with OU Physical Therapy, the Tandy Family YMCA features Studio A -- The Mind and Body Yoga Studio; a brand-new Play & Learn, with separate areas for infants and older children; the Healthy Table, a hands-on nutrition-education kitchen for classes and demonstrations with five cooking stations; the Y Family Room, for our members' families of all ages; new Classrooms D (for programs like Iron Girls) and E (for Dance and Enhance Fitness classes); and an enormous Strength and Conditioning area, with brand-new equipment and more than 4,000 square feet of space." Our guests on the show today elaborate on all of the above; we are joined by Susan Plank, the CEO of the YMCA of Greater Tulsa, and Dr. Monty Cavanagh, the Director of the Center for Exercise and Sports Medicine at OU Physicians-Tulsa, which is now based at the Tandy Family YMCA.
