Health & Wellness

Lifelong Approach to Healthy Living

At the Y, being healthy means more than being physically fit. It’s also about maintaining a healthy balance between Spirit, Mind and Body. And while good health can begin with exercise, it’s also about prevention, nutrition  and adopting lifelong healthy habits to combat chronic disease ─ things like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke.

At the Y, we empower people of all ages and abilities to change their lives for the better ─ and we do it through a personalized approach that meets every person’s individualized needs and goals.


Virtual YMCA Wellness Center

We want to ensure you take care of your spirit, mind, and body whether you’re in our family center or in your own home. We have resources for individuals and families that include workout videos, enrichment activities, a link to our YMCA Prayer Wall, and more!


The 8 Colors of Fitness

The 8 Colors of Fitness is a program that was developed to help you understand the ways your mind and body respond to exercising! Start by taking a quiz to learn your color. After you’ve learned about your fitness personality, you can choose the specific workouts, interactions, and environments that are suited to your needs.


Healthy Living Recipes

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Browse our selection of healthy tips and recipes created by our very own Chef Gary! Whether you are looking for meals, sides or snacks, we have something for you! Our recipes are easy to follow and designed for the whole family to enjoy.


Virtual Chef

As part of your YMCA of Central Florida membership, Chef Gary is available to help you and your family live better at home. Because the Y is here for you in Spirit, Mind and Body, we want to help you reach your wellness goals not just on the wellness floor—but in the kitchen, too.


Christian Initiatives

At the Y, we have a clear mission: to improve the lives of all in Central Florida by connecting individuals, families and communities with opportunities based on Christian values that strengthen Spirit, Mind and Body. Learn more about our initiatives!
