Wellness for Life
Create lasting change and learn sustainable ways to eat healthier, move more, and manage weight.
The Y’s approach is smart, effective, and sustainable. No gimmicks, restrictive approaches, or quick fixes – just encouragement, a supportive community, and the tools you need to reach your goals. We’ll help you tailor a path for your unique needs that leads to ongoing success.
The Wellness for Life (formerly Lose to Win) program helps you reach your goals by establishing accountability, planning, and problem-solving measures, all while receiving group and coach support.
Wellness for Life is all about working with your body and mind, not against it. Through our holistic approach to getting active and encouraging yourself and others, participants see long-term changes to their health.
Knowing where to start with nutrition is tough! The Y helps you discover the foods that satisfy and support your healthy diet.
Energy is everything. Get back in your groove with the energy you need to enjoy all aspects of your life like playing with your kids or grandkids, focusing at work, and much more.
Getting enough physical activity isn't just about hitting the weight room, it's about finding what your body likes to do and encouraging it to do more. Over time, increase your physical activity without burning yourself out!
Weight isn't indicative of health, but managing weight can help you to feel more energetic, happier, and help manage chronic conditions like pain and diabetes.
Wellness for Life is a 16-week program where participants meet for 60 minutes each week.

This program provides helpful strategies to incorporate nutrition and physical activity into your lifestyle, while addressing motivation, obstacles, and pitfalls that make losing weight and keeping it off such a challenge. The benefits of participating in Wellness for Life long outlast the program.
"The program is a positive environment that can give you the tools you need to get through struggles that make you want to quit." - Program participant
You are not in this alone. You’ll be joined by a small group of others just like you, who will support and motivate you to reach your goals, encourage you through challenges, and celebrate successes along the way! Making change can be hard to do alone. Groups provide accountability and support. Build awareness about what works for you while in a supportive community.
“Meeting weekly with incredibly supportive, like-minded people helped me achieve my goal and learn a lot about myself. Once I started seeing results, it was easy to stick with.” - Program participant
