WELCOME  TO THE STEVENS POINT AREA YMCA!

The Stevens Point Area YMCA has been learning and growing with area families for many years. We understand the trials that today’s families face, we are aware of their hurdles and obstacles, and we embrace their dreams. We believe that families — regardless of culture, ethnicity, or even socio-economic background — have at least one common hope. Parents want an improved life for their kids, a life with fewer struggles and greater rewards. Our goal at the YMCA is to help parents and families realize that dream by nurturing the full potential of children and teen, by improving the health and well-being of those we touch and by motivating people to support their neighbors and the larger community. The Y is about changing lives for the better.

  HEALTH & WELLNESS

HEALTH COACHING   Ages 10 years old & up
You’ve probably started down the road to better health, but due to everyday challenges, you couldn’t quite reach your destination. These challenges may relate to not feeling like you have enough time, emotional insecurities such as not feeling motivated, or simply you lack the necessary support.  If you are tired of not sustaining changes and need extra guidance and accountability to get your through that process, try our Health Coaching Program.

During a 6-week period, you will schedule a minimum of four 60 minute meetings with your health coach. You will receive guided support and encouragement to help break through barriers that are impeding your health and wellness goals. We also introduce you to Y programs and services that can help you stay motivated beyond the six weeks.

Working with a health coach will help you develop and maintain a physically active lifestyle and help you become self-motivated to meet not only your physical needs but emotional needs, and most importantly, your goals you have set for yourself. By appointment. Wellness Center. Y Member Free
