Adults 18+

Did you know that more than 20% of Canadian adults live with one of the top four chronic diseases: cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases and four out of five Canadians are at risk? There’s good news—you can delay or even prevent the development of many chronic conditions by making lifestyle changes, such as increasing your physical activity level!

Delivered in collaboration with Vancouver Coastal Health's Healthy Living Program, Make Your Move is a new pilot program designed for adults at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and other chronic health challenges, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Delivered at the Langara Family YMCA in South Vancouver, Make Your Move aims to help those new to physical activity find suitable options that meet their interests and their needs.

With the support of a kinesiologist, participants create a personalized fitness program that includes aerobic and strength training. Supervised sessions take place twice per week in a group-based setting at the Y. As a program participant you will have the opportunity to: 

  • Build an individualized fitness program with the help of a kinesiologist 
  • Meet others, gain new skills, and support each other while getting active!
  • Take advantage of a 12-week YMCA membership included in program fees
