They say you are what you eat.

Seventy-five percent of your health comes from the foods you eat. Many people put hours of effort into their exercise regime while paying little attention to the foods they eat – you truly are what you eat.

Invest in yourself and let YMCA instructors help you achieve your health goals. At the Y, we believe that small steps lead to big changes. The first step to a healthier life may be at the dinner table and the choices made at the grocery store.

If you are looking for advice on how to help manage your weight, improve athletic performance, or establish healthy eating habits, seeing a Registered Dietitian (RD) might be just what you need!
