health and wellness

The Wellness staff at the Benbrook Community Center/ YMCA is here to assist you in improving your total health and wellness.


LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a program for cancer survivors and those currently undergoing treatment, focuses on you- the whole person- not the disease. The free 12-week program meets twice a week for 90 minutes, using traditional exercise methods to ease you back into fitness and help you maintain a healthy weight. You'll also learn about wellness, stress reduction and how to continue healthy habits after the program has ended. We encourage a warm spirit of community and provide a place for you to build friendships with others affected by cancer and an opportunity to share stories and inspiration.

Next Sessions:

February 24 - May 14: Mondays & Tuesdays, 12 - 1:30 pm

February 25 - May 15: Tuesdays & Thursdays 7:15 - 8:45 pm

Body Gem

Body Gem is a metabolic testing device that enables individuals to successfully manage nutrition, weight and fitness by simply measuring the calories burned at rest each day. The device is a portable meter that scientifically measures a person’s resting metabolic rate. Resting metabolism accounts for up to 75 percent of the calories people use each day, creating a personalized caloric benchmark for losing, maintaining or gaining weight. Historically, estimation equations have been used to determine metabolism, but have proven to be accurate for only 20% of the population. So, knowing your unique metabolism can be the key to success. $50 per session
