YFIT with Palmetto Health Tuomey
In January 2018, the Sumter Family YMCA partnered with Palmetto Health Tuomey and The Toumey Foundation to promote better health and well-being for 133 of their employees. Over the period of 12 weeks, the employees spent 1 hour each week learning new strategies and approaches to improve health behaviors and overall quality of life while juggling hectic schedules and life’s demands.
YFIT Clinical Trial
Earlier in 2015, the Sumter Family YMCA partnered with Sumter Family Health Center to conduct a pilot study to validate the effectiveness of the YMCA’s YFIT programs. In its fourth year, the nutrition and fitness education programs are designed to empower individuals with the knowledge and tools to make healthier choices that improve quality of life and reduce risk of chronic disease. The results of the pilot study are attached below, along with information on how to become a YFIT trainer.
