T2- Diabetes Prevention Program:
The NCK Wellness Center is currently taking applications for participation in the next Diabetes Prevention Program. The next class will be scheduled based on need.
The Diabetes Prevention Program is a one-year program for individuals with pre-diabetes. Program participants will work with a trained lifestyle coach and other participants to learn the skills needed to make lasting lifestyle changes. They will learn to eat healthier, be more physically active, manage stress, stay motivated and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy lifestyles.
The group meets on a weekly to bi-weekly basis for the first 6-months, then once a month for the following 6 weeks to help maintain healthy lifestyle changes. The overarching goal of the program is to assist participants in losing 5-7% of their bodyweight which can significantly lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The Wallyball net is available just outside the racquetball court. If you’d like to play, contact the front desk to schedule a time. Wallyball is played just like Volleyball but you can use the walls to get the ball over the net. It is lot’s of fun with 2 or 3 people on a team and a great cardio workout. You can find videos of Wallyball online or you can ask at the front desk for a rules book to explain the game to you. Be sure to reserve the room for free if you’d like to give it a shot!
