Learn How! Free

The San Antonio YMCA offers a free program that includes personal support and encouragements.

You participate in a small group to explore healthier eating and more physical activity.

Avoiding diabetes is far less expensive than eating and stagnating into the disease.

Trained Lifestyle Coaches meet you in a classroom over a full year (12 moths). This includes 16 sessions, plus a month of maintenance.

This takes effort and determination…but you are worth it.
