"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." (Attributed to Aristotle)

You’ve heard the statistics – some studies claim it takes 21 days to break or form a habit, while others show it takes six weeks.

At the Y, we know that Healthy Living means more than working out 3-5 days a week. We believe that your family's health and well-being also depends on having the proper nutrition. When we give our bodies the right fuel, we are better prepared to learn, grow and thrive.


More than 1300 girls competed at the YMCA Gymnastics National Meet June 29-July 1, 2012, at Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Among them were several members of the JOYS gymnastics team from South Bend.

Alexis Mitschelen finished 10 in the Level 8 All-Around finals with 70.225 points. She placed third in her Floor Exercise (9.08), fourth in Uneven Parallel Bars (8.65), fifth on the Beam (9.45) and fifth in Vault (8.7).


A heat advisory has been issued for St Joseph County for June 28. The National Weather Service says temperatures will continue to rise into the mid-90s Thursday. They advise that we all take extra precautions when working our spending time outdoors. Try to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.

A good idea would be to review the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, wear light weight and loose-fitting clothing if possible, and drink plenty of WATER.


The Y is committed to providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
