The numbers don't lie—1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes.

With a little exercise and a change in diet, it can be reversed. Let's face it, there are millions of reasons why we don't find the time to make healthy lifestyle choices. Kids, jobs, cat videos on the Internet - we're busy. But whatever your reason, prediabetes is real. So find out if you have prediabetes by taking the test now. You won't regret it.

Start your warm up before you even check in by parking further away from the Y.  You will leave more spaces available for our members with mobility difficulties and kick off your workout with a nice walk at the same time.

~Thank you for your consideration~
