Corporate Membership – Encourage Your Employees To Be Active

Healthy, happy people are good employees. The Y is excited to offer corporate membership options.

An estimated 25-30% of companies’ medical costs/year were spent on employees with excess, often preventable, health risk. Other benefits that companies see include:
