GREATER WICHITA YMCA 

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

The Greater Wichita YMCA is committed to healthy living and empowering our community through education and information - as much as our better-known branch locations and youth sports. Each year, thousands of our neighbors - including members and community participants - participate in our health and wellness programs and initiatives that are designed for kids, adults, and seniors - for those pursuing fitness goals and those managing diseases. We work with corporate partners on employee wellness, established community partners on education and support programs, and individual partners on personal health. 

The following is an overview of our Health and Wellness programs - organized by type. If you, or someone you know, is interested in or needing support in a way you don't see here - please us our CONTACT US form to submit an inquiry. If we don't offer the right program - we'll help you find someone who does.

INBODY SCAN / ANALYSIS

InBody Scans are a basic assessment of your body's composition as relates to pursuit of personal fitness. A scan will analyze:

  • Weight and Composition (Fat / Muscle percentages)
  • Hydration level (water retained)
  • Basal metabolic rate (calories burned)
  • Notable imbalances (areas for potential improvement)

InBody Scans are included in our Personal Training, Nutrition Coaching, and other offerings and are also available upon request for a small fee. Ask our Fitness Staff for details.
