Reach Your Wellness Goals with Us

Y Weight Loss is designed to help adults 18 years and older seeking a healthier weight achieve their goals by making small, modest changes to daily behaviors and forming sustainable healthy habits. This program is not intended for individuals with specialized needs due to chronic disease or the onset of chronic disease.

Because weight loss is unique to each person, this program focuses on helping individuals identify ways to make small, modest changes to their behavior within the context of their own life and in support of their weight loss goals. The tools provided during this program, along with the knowledge and support of the group, are used by participants to develop their own nutrition and exercise plans that work for them.

•Provides tools, knowledge and group support to help you develop a nutrition and exercise plan that works for you

Here’s What We’re Hearing from Members:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I learned strategies to help me stay on track to meet my goals for physical wellness. Erika was an excellent group leader. She was compassionate, empathetic, and encouraging. I look forward to coming to the YMCA to further my journey toward physical fitness!” -Meredith

“I’m so much more aware of accountability…to myself! Erika made it all about me, and not anyone else’s standard of what I should weigh, what I should look like, or who I should be. And I lost weight without even trying!” – Shauna

“The Y Weight Loss Program gives you tools needed to be able to live your life, eat the foods you like, but be smart about it. Learning to plan, and learning not to think of food as being bad or good are other ways of helping people to stop being caught up in the circle of overeating. I would recommend the program to others.” -Kim

This program will introduce participants to behaviors that have been shown to lead to sustained weight loss, and help participants develop those behaviors in ways that fit into their personal lifestyle.

Will I receive a personalized nutrition or exercise plan in this program?

Will anyone see my weight during weekly weigh-ins?
