When you choose to partner with the Y, you are choosing to support a non-profit, community organization that offers more health, more hope, and more opportunity to your organization.

Diabetes is a costly physical health condition for employers in both direct (such as hospitalizations, medical and outpatient care) and indirect costs (such as absenteeism, lost productivity at work, and short-term disability). As a leading voice dedicated to improving the nation’s health, the Y has become increasingly focused on confronting preventable chronic disease such as type 2 diabetes. Our Diabetes Prevention Program is based on the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program led by the National Institutes of Health and supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Diabetes Prevention Program has shown that with lifestyle changes and modest weight reduction, a person with pre-diabetes can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by 58%. Offering the Diabetes Prevention Program to employees as part of your wellness program helps employees take the important first step toward making the changes they need to prevent this chronic disease. The Diabetes Prevention Program is offered at no cost to participants.

Weight alone is not a clear indication of good health. Utilizing the InBody, Y fitness staff will conduct a 2-minute, non-invasive analysis that will tell your employees what they’re made of. They’ll receive a printed report of their data including body fat, lean mass and water, basal metabolic rate, and more. This quick, convenient test is an easy way to track progress and understand changes in total body composition beyond the number on the scale.
