Jorge Llopis' physician told him he was prediabetic.
Diabetes runs in his family. "When the doctor warned me that if I did not make changes in eating and exercise, I could get diabetes and heart disease. I wanted to make changes in my life."
Jorge had never been physically active. "I had no idea where to start. When I learned the Wellness Works program gave me a structured exercise routine, I knew it would help me continue to exercise."
After months of work, his blood sugar and cholesterol levels normalized. "I also feel like my workouts have gotten better, and it is easier to exercise."
A membership at the Y can be life-changing, as Jorge shows. No one is denied membership at the Y because of financial hardship. You can support a life-change by helping sponsor a membership giving to the YMCA of Greenville Annual Campaign.
