New Year Health Commitment

jan-hh-new-habitCOMMIT TO BE FIT IN 2016!

It is human nature to perform your best when you are personally challenged and when you share your goals with others. So the Y is challenging all of our members to take a pledge to be more active and eat healthier in 2016.

During January, 2016, find a commit card in the Y lobby or Wellness Center and make a promise to yourself and/or family to be a happier and healthier you. All cards will be displayed as a reminder of the commitment you made to live a healthier lifestyle.
