Exercise is Medicine

Add years to your life, one step at a time

Exercise is Medicine (EIM) is a 12-week program, designed to help incorporate physical activity as part of a healthier lifestyle in order to improve overall health and well-being.

In our Virtual EIM program you’ll gain access to not just one, but two programs that you can follow along with.

  • You’ll have access to our traditional EIM programming offered in a Y facility, as well as at home versions.
  • You’ll have access to your  personal EIM coach both through the app and through 30-minute virtual coaching appointments each week. These appointments are designed to support you on your journey whether you need to set new goals, get a quick boost, help with a complicated habit change or even a check in your form on a difficult movement.

Program cost – $249

Use our Physical Activity Vital Sign Tool to see if you qualify for the program.

What is your Physical Activity Vital Sign?

  1. On average, how many days per week do you engage in moderate to strenuous exercise (like a brisk walk)?
  2. On average, how many minutes do you engage in exercise at this level?
  3. Total minutes per week – multiply #1 by #2 to get your total.

Your Results

If you total is below 150 minutes, you qualify for the YMCA Exercise is Medicine program.

Ask your healthcare professional how you can benefit from EIM. In order to participate in the program, individuals MUST have an EIM referral form from a physician.

If your total minutes per week equals 150 minutes, congratulations, you meet the national physical activity recommendations.
