Health and Lifestyle Programmes Onehunga

It’s never too late to make positive lifestyle changes, meet new people and learn new things

At The Y (formerly known as YMCA) Sir William Jordan Recreation Centre, we want to make it easy for people to lead a healthy lifestyle, so we offer two very special lifestyle programmes that will help get you on track and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

We have a Jumpstart programme for those who are pre-diabetic, or diabetic. The programme offers group sessions and education seminars working with experienced and passionate trainers. We organise fun activities suitable for all ages and abilities and you will receive ongoing advice and support in maintaining a more active lifestyle.

The Y-Gold programme is designed for those over 65 and it’s here to prove that it’s never too late to take up physical activity and take more control over your health and wellbeing. Sessions consist of group activities/ classes to choose from, exercise to music and gym sessions. All guided by experienced trainers and of course a cup of tea and a chat with the group after each session.


Designed for people with or at risk of Diabetes, Jumpstart is a fun, holistic programme focussing on nutrition, active lifestyles, wellness and community. Ten week programmes start regularly.



Y-Gold is a targeted gym based programme for over 65 designed to support independent lifestyles. Based on functional movement, the programme offers modified sports, social activities and outdoor challenges.
