In April of 2016, the Y’s healthy living staff developed a 12-week transformation program for members that included an initial weigh-in and a consultation to set goals for diet and exercise. The program also included an invitation to members to weigh in with a fitness staff person once a week over the 12-week period to evaluate progress and offer encouragement.
The Y promoted the program to members on social media and through internal communications and the response was huge! Over 250 members responded that they were interested in signing up! Y staff had to close registration early to keep the program manageable, but were thrilled to know that this was something that members found valuable.
