What is Family BEfit?

The Y makes strengthening communities our cause. We do this through programs that help families and individuals learn, grow and thrive. The Family BEfit program is designed to give families the tools they need to build healthy habits and promote healthy living. The Y understands that to bring about meaningful change, families need ongoing encouragement and a safe environment for success.

Family BEfit is equal parts fitness, nutrition and fun. A program designed to encourage families to work together at  being healthier and meeting their goals, Family BEfit includes the support of personal train- ers, nutrition specialists and the Y service team.
