Weight Loss Programs Español

Did you know that the current obesity rate in greater Los Angeles is 24.5%? That means one in every four people in our city is obese – and that includes children. Our programs and resources are designed to help improve physical activity and overall health and wellness, so together we can start to bring that statistic down.

“Because of our new Y, the community is now thinking more about their health – not just for themselves but for their children. I’m happy to report that we are now no longer the most obese city among children in the southeast.” - Mayor Oscar Magana, City of Maywood

Maybe you watch programs like “The Biggest Loser,” thinking how great it is that the contestants receive personal training, coaching and nutritional help to achieve big goals.

Maybe you just have a few pounds to lose, and need some extra motivation. Wherever you are on the spectrum, we’re here to help and support you. We know losing weight isn’t just a physical journey, but it’s a mental and emotional one too. Take a look at what we offer, and if you have any questions, just give us a call and we’ll sign you up for the weight loss program that’s right for you.

Healthy bodies, healthy minds, happy lives.

MEND Program
Children who are overweight or obese now have access to a free 10-week, after-school weight management course where they and their families learn how to develop behaviors that support healthy lifestyles. It’s all part of our local efforts to fight childhood obesity through the MEND Program (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do it!).

This exercise/nutrition program attacks the childhood obesity epidemic in a refreshing way-with fun. The success of this program is due to the uncompromising parent involvement. Families learn about what their bodies need to sustain energy and how exercise doesn’t have to feel like a chore.
