Healthy Lifestyles

At the Y, we believe healthy living is about more than just physical health. That's why we offer programs to support healthy lifestyle changes in spirit, mind, and body. From chronic disease prevention initiatives like the Diabetes Prevention Program to support for cancer survivors like the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program to resources for navigating life's challenges in our Life University small group classes, the Y is your partner in healthy living.
