Welcome to Week Five!

It's All About Balance

This week is all about incorporating balance into your healthy lifestyle! A life without balance is not sustainable. This week we will explore how we can create a balanced approach to a healthy plate that also allows us to eat foods simply because they taste good. The materials this week will also discuss how we can get strategic with our food and activity choices with a focus on balanced lifestyle choices.

Join Sonya and Katrina as they share ways you can let go of the all or nothing approach and include more balance into your life.

Personalized Wellness Plan

Wellness is personal and the path to it is different for everyone. At the Y, we offer a complimentary Personalized Wellness Plan to members each year to help you establish your path and stick to it!

Programs for Health

As a community-facing organization, the Y’s mission has long focused on helping people to live their healthiest lives and reach their full potential in mind, body, and spirit. We acknowledge that individual “health” is influenced by a range of environmental, social, and biological factors, many of which cannot be adequately addressed in the clinic.
