About Activate Idaho Falls

Activate is a community-wide healthy living initiative, kicking off on January 14, 2023. Activate Idaho Falls is an Idaho Falls family YMCA program, and is free to all adults in the greater area. Thanks to the support of our sponsors Mountain View Hospital, Idaho Falls Community Hospital, Elevation Labs, and Idaho National Laboratory.

Activate is an eight-week comprehensive wellness program with a weight loss component during which participants will be able to privately view their results online. However not merely a weight loss program, Activate will also provide the structure, incentive, and support to begin a more active and healthy lifestyle journey.
