Lakewood Family YMCA
Tim found a LIVESTRONG group at the Lakewood Family YMCA. Over the course of the program, he lost 17 pounds, changed the way he ate, and started to exercise three times a week. Through LIVESTRONG, he got connected to a FitPath coach, who helped Tim form a new exercise habit.
“From the beginning, the Y supported the motivation I had to improve my health,” Tim said. “In fact, my FitPath coach asked me what my goal was. I said, ‘To stay motivated and keep coming.’ They were very encouraging, made it feel life a safe place to be, and I'm still coming.”
After completing the FitPath program, Tim wanted to help others improve their health and well-being and became a volunteer FitPath coach. You can find him upstairs helping other members reach their fitness goals.
