Health & Well-Being and Personal Training
We're here to help you reach your goals...see page 13, 14 in the Winter/Spring Program Guide.
Choosing a healthy lifestyle is challenge. With access to affordable and convenient meal options, the distraction of technology at every turn, and putting in long hours, it’s easy to get lost in the hustle bustle of today’s to-do list.
At the Y, we want everyone to get back to the core of healthy living and feel empowered to make better, healthier choices. Whether it is choosing to exercise a few times per week, giving up fast food meals, or education themselves on nutrition, fitness, or diseases like diabetes, the Y encourages individuals to choose a healthy lifestyle.
A sample of what we offer:
- Learn how to combat Type II (adult onset) Diabetes in the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program.
- Discover the fun of exercise through our fitness facilities, including gymnasiums, fitness studios, a running track, swimming and more.
- Burn calories in fun classes like Zumba, Body Pump and many more- all led by certified and experienced instructors.
- Come together and build new relationships and friendships surrounding common interests and life experiences.
We want you to be successful at the YMCA!
