Encouraging Healthy Habits

2012-03-24_KSCY-1060_rgbBeing healthy means more than just being physically active.

The Y is a place where you and your family will be encouraged to work towards that balance – to try a new routine, make a new friend, to challenge yourself and to enjoy each other.  At the Y, we offer many programs for you and your family to develop healthy habits.
