YMCA Nutrition Solutions

When it comes to overall wellness, the 80-20 rule applies: 20% of your success depends on physical activity, and 80% comes from nutrition!

To make sure you’re getting the most from the foods you eat, the YMCA can help.
The Y offers nutrition solutions to help members optimize their health and achieve their fitness goals. (Not a member? Join here!)

Nutrition services are led by a certified nutrition specialist or registered dietitian and are provided at Y Wellness Centers throughout the metro area, including Downtown Denver, Glendale, Littleton, Southwest Denver, Arvada and University Hills.
