One of the very best things you can do for your health is completely free."

If you follow your favorite celebrities on social media, chances are you’ve seen them endorse the hottest new waist trainer, teatox or superfood system. But here at the Y, we believe that you don’t have to spend Hollywood money to feel and look your best. In fact, one of the very best things you can do for your health is completely free.

We’re talking about volunteering. While community enrichment requires taking time away from your already busy life, just a few hours per month could give you years back in the long run. Step away from the juicer and check out the facts:

Next time you head to the Y for a training session, stop by the member experience desk to find out how you can contribute to the programs you and your family love. More than 65 percent of our youth sport coaches are Y members, and a total of 5,747 individuals volunteered their time to Metro programs in 2014.
