YMCA holds open houses on Oahu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The YMCA of Honolulu is hosting an island-wide open house at seven branches on Oahu to show its renewed commitment to community-wide health. 

For people seeking a healthier lifestyle as part of their New Year's resolutions, the YMCA of Honolulu is offering a plan to help individuals achieve their health and wellness goals. 

Members who join the YMCA on January 8 will get a four-week Jumpstart Program, which includes four weeks with a certified personal wellness coach.

 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 15 to 20 percent of people stay with their exercise program long enough to see any health benefits.

The Jumpstart Program teaches exercisers how to stick with their health and wellness program by supporting their short and long-term goals, which may include nutrition, exercise, pain and stress management and overall healthy living.

The open house will offer group exercise classes and demonstrations, health-related vendors, family activities, prizes and a special Open House island-wide membership rate
