Health Lifestyle Programmes

Supporting our communities through specialised fitness and wellbeing programmes

‘We build strong kids, strong families, strong communities.’ Our vision is at the heart of everything we do at YMCA Auckland, and we go about fulfilling it in a variety of ways. For some members of the community, learning how to stay healthy and fit can be a challenge.

We have two highly successful, targeted programmes available for our community, and we’re very proud of them. Jumpstart is our highly regarded lifestyle programme for people with diabetes, and Y-Gold is a fitness programme for over 60s.

We believe that better health and wellbeing is a goal that everyone can work towards – and through our programmes encouraging a healthy lifestyle, we have a means by which to support community members who need it the most.
