Previously a dedicated runner, Tony had no need for working out in a gym setting, but over time he had to give up the pavement and turn to a new form of fitness to stay active and healthy. He joked, “I liked the sound of having a trainer.” Tony was quickly connected with Y Trainer, Andrea Hallowell and Y Trainer Casey Clark-Kelley joined in, each seeing him once a week, helping him continuously improve his fitness while keeping the impact off his joints.
In all earnestness, Tony states, “My informed, vigilant personal trainers, Casey and Andrea, with their determination and willingness to provide professional direction, constant encouragement instill in me the confidence that my goals are achievable. Otherwise, I’d be wasting my time.”

If you pull into the Central Lincoln County YMCA parking lot on a clear Tuesday or Thursday morning, you’re likely to notice a beautiful 1956 Austin Healey 100M roadster in Old English White and Lobelia Blue that belongs to Y member, Tony Correa.
You are just as likely to see Tony himself if you head into the Fitness Center, because there’s a good chance he will notice you and say hello. An avid storyteller, Tony will undoubtedly find a piece of information in his quick-thinking style that will relate to you in some way.
Although Tony has only been coming to the Y for about six months, one would think he has been a regular here for years.
He is well-known to staff and members alike for his lively and inquisitive presence. Founder and owner of A.G.A Correa & Son, a renowned jewelry company established in 1969, Tony believes building relationships in a family focused environment is key to success in life.
So if you need an extra boost to focus on your health, be sure to look for the guy with the nice car who will encourage you to keep coming back to the Y.
