Wellness

Health goals are achieved every day at the YMCA

  • Are you new to exercise or have been inactive for a long time?
  • Do you have a chronic health condition and have been told you should exercise?
  • Are you struggling with healthy habits like eating well and maintaining a healthy weight?
  • Are you not sure how to get started and looking for support?

Wellness programs are designed to support anyone who is inactive and/or managing a chronic health condition. Exercise instruction is customized to each participant.  Health talks are provided that focus on nutrition, exercise guidelines and health management.  Support from YMCA instructors, volunteers and other program participants provide a safe and positive environment to get started with exercise and healthy living.

**Seniors 65+ years can participate in wellness programs for FREE at the Chaplin Family YMCA, between September – December, 2018.**
