The new Houston Texans YMCA is now open. It's the first ever Y to be named after a professional sports team. The new facility is at the intersection of Griggs and MLK in Houston's Third Ward. It includes a gymnasium, fitness center and outdoor swimming pool. The director of the new Y says he hopes the partnership with the Texans will inspire more young people to live healthy, active lives.
