The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program focuses on small measurable, reasonable goals to give participants confidence

they can make the necessary changes to reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes and live healthier lives. In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will facilitate a small group of

participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavioral changes over 25 sessions. Program developed in partnership with Granite YMCA.

Support Group

Livestrong
 

A FREE 12-week small group program for adult cancer survivors, family members, and caregivers. The program meets twice a week for 75 minutes. We support cancer survivors in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the time of feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to return to their normal life.

 

Our staff are trained exercise specialists. They understand participant needs and help each individual address them safely while everyone works at their own pace. Instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise, and supportive cancer care. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA instructors come from varied backgrounds and have particular expertise in group exercise and personal training. Staff work with each participant to fit the program to their individual needs so participants can practice a healthy lifestyle, not only as part of the recovery process, but as a way of life.
