YMCA’s 6-Week Health Fitness Program
The road to better health has many twists and turns, and often a pothole or two. Like many of us, you’ve probably been down the road before, but for one reason or another you were detoured from reaching your destination. Research indicates that participating in regular physical activity establishes a routine which will increase your rate of success to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Join our program today to get you ready to become a better and healthier you with our certified wellness coaches. This program is FREE for full YMCA members.
This is for you!

How do I get started?
