The Y—with 19 branches in the Charlotte area, including the Sara’s YMCA branch that opened in Ballantyne in February—uses fitness to bring us together. On a Wednesday night at the Johnston Y in NoDa, adults of all ages and skin tones swim laps next to kids learning the breaststroke, with hip hop blaring on the radio and moms and dads checking their cell phones on the bleachers. Upstairs, yogis breathe deeply and cyclists sweat in a spin class. Everyone is in this together, at least for an hour or two.
