Jumpstart is a lifestyle programme that takes a holistic approach to diabetes self-management through active movement, nutritional guidance, health education, family involvement and community.

JumpStart is suitable for people from the age of 15 years, who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes or who might have pre diabetes.

The programme is free for all our new and existing members and if for some strange reason you are not a member of the YMCA its just $80 for 10 weeks of:

  • Complete access to the gym and all our facilities - including spin
  • Group support
  • 10 health and wellness seminars covering:
    • nutrition
    • exercise
    • sleep
    • rest and recovery
    • goal setting
    • shopping
    • feet, teeth and eye care
    • reading food labels

We are an all inclusive gym and believe health and fitness should be affordable to everyone. So if finances are what is stopping you from joining this programme ask about sponsorship.

YMCA Invercargill has had great results since launching Jumpstart in February 2017, read about Maureen’s journey here.
