Diabetes Prevention Program

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps overweight adults at risk for type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of developing the disease by taking steps that will improve their overall health and well-being. The program provides a supportive environment where participants work together to achieve the program goals of reducing individual weight by 7% and building up to 150 minutes of moderate (the equivalent of brisk walking) physical activity per week for the purpose of reducing their risk of developing diabetes. The program is delivered over a 12-month period in a classroom setting and can be offered in any community location to participants who meet qualification criteria putting them at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

Please inquire at the wellness desk for more details.

LIVESTRONGⓇ at the YMCA is an evidence based physical activity and improved quality of life initiative that helps individuals affected by cancer reach their personal health goals. “Research shows exercise is the simplest way for cancer survivors to reduce fatigue, improve their mood and bounce back from the debilitating effects of cancer treatment more quickly,” said Greg Lee, President and CEO of the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Each class is led by a YMCA-certified trainer and will consist of cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises.
