Wellness Programs


Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. Your body is a complex structure made of different components such as water, fat and muscle. To thoroughly learn about your body and its condition, take the InBody test. In less than 30 seconds, the InBody will reveal your body fat percentage, muscle distribution, and body water balance. Watch the improvements from exercise and diet and do not let your hard work go to waste.
Please call about specific steps that should be followed prior to your test.

Medical Adult Scholarships are a way for doctors to encourage preventative health care and provide pa¬tients with the skills they need to enhance their own health and recovery. Those who would like to receive a scholarship must bring in a doctor’s referral. The referred individual will be asked to come to an orientation meeting and will receive a 7-visit punch card pass to the YMCA. During this time the referred individual will meet with a qualified wellness staff person who will help create an exercise program that works within their limitations and medical concerns.

Note: To qualify for this program you must show financial need and a willingness to take part in utilizing the YMCA facility to assist you in achieving your health goals. Access to the facility will be monitored and a lack of utilization will result in the termination of the scholarship.
