Y-Change | YMCA of South Hampton Roads
Help Desk Software

We know that change isn’t easy and living healthy is a choice you have to make each and every day. We’ve designed the Y-Change healthy lifestyle program to help guide and support you every step of the way. Y-Change will provide you with coaching, knowledge, resources and group support to help you make small physical activity and nutritional changes that add up to a healthier lifestyle. Y-Change is included in membership!

What to expect in Y-Change

  • You'll meet 2–3 times per week for six weeks with your Y-Change Coach and a small group of members working toward living healthier.
  • As a group, you'll try new classes and activities at the Y and you'll track your physical activity.
  • Learn about healthy eating and track the food you eat.
  • You'll support and motivate others in your group, and they'll do the same for you.
