Become Your Best Self
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is designed to help those at a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating healthier and increasing activity and losing a modest amount of weight in to reduce the chances of developing the disease.
Blood Pressure Self Monitoring
If you are living with high blood pressure, taking action to keep it well-controlled will minimize your risk for complications like stroke, heart attack and even death. The YMCA’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring program is an evidence-based program that offers personalized support as individuals develop the habit of routinely self-monitoring their blood pressure. Research shows that the process of recording blood pressure at least twice a month over a period of four months can lower blood pressure in many people with high blood pressure.

Cancer knows no boundaries, but we believe in the strength of community and that every survivor deserves unconditional support, a chance to belong and an opportunity to feel “normal” as they regain their strength.
