DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM

More than 84 million adults in the U.S. have prediabetes - that’s 1 out of every 3 Americans! Yet, 9 out of 10 people don't even know they have it. The YMCA can help. The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is part of the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program, which has proven that through healthier eating, increased physical activity, and a small amount of weight loss, it’s possible to prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 Diabetes by 58-71%.

Through this Y program, participants meet regularly with a certified lifestyle coach to learn about:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Overcoming stress
  • Staying motivated

Together, they get the resources and support they need to meet program goals:

  • Decrease body weight by 7%
  • Increase physical activity to 150 minutes per week
  • Improve wellness and reduce diabetes risk

Take action now to transform your health:

The one-year program is $429 and consists of 25 sessions (sessions 1-16 meet every week; sessions 17-19 meet every two weeks; sessions 20-25 meet every month). 

A one-year YMCA membership, Fitness Orientation, InBody Scans and one personal training session are included. Scholarships are available for those who qualify.

To be eligible for the Diabetes Prevention Program, you must be 18 years of age or older and have a:

  • Prediabetic blood value
  • Diagnosis of prediabetes or
  • High score on a CDC diabetes risk assessment 

If you don’t have a blood test result, take this risk assessment quiz to see if you’re eligible.
