New Equipment Coming!

Santa is coming early to the Wilkes Family YMCA! We are replacing seven Precor treadmills with updated models in the Wellness Room. Plus, we are adding three new Concept 2 rowers and two Assault Air Bikes to the Training Center. Stay tuned for more details!

 


Weight Loss Program

Are you looking for support in achieving your weight loss goals? These one-hour classroom sessions will be offered once per week for 12 weeks and will focus on: weekly goal setting, food/activity tracking, an introduction to physical activity offerings at the Y, and weekly weigh-ins. Let us support and assist you on your weight-loss journey starting with small, modest improvements in healthy behaviors with a goal of making lasting changes and replacing negative habits with positive ones!

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

Change Today For A Healthier Future

An estimated one of every three U.S. adults has prediabetes, yet just 7% of those with prediabetes know they have it.

Are you or someone you know at risk? Take the quiz now to find out.

You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living. If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where you can work with others in a small group setting to learn how to adopt healthy habits to reduce your chances of developing the disease.

The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. You will learn strategies for eating healthier, increasing your physical activity and making other changes that will improve your overall health and well-being. National Institutes of Health research has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by almost 60%.
