Our lifestyle change programs aimed at preventing and managing chronic disease are another way the Shasta Family YMCA is helping people live their healthiest and fullest lives.  The Shasta Family YMCA offers these programs in response to critical needs in the community.  Our evidence-based programs bridge the gap between clinical care and health promotion/disease prevention by providing programming in small group, supportive environments.  Our programs help individuals build a healthy spirit, mind and body, which makes for a healthier community for us all. 






This program helps clients discover how to fuel their bodies, live a healthy lifestyle, and become their healthiest, happiest version of themselves by finding what works for them. This takes place through small shifts and goals to move a person further along on their journey towards being their personal best.
