Door County YMCA CEO Tom Beernsten agrees with the World Health Organization that more people need a simple exercise regimen to keep healthy. A recent WHO study finds that a third of women and a quarter of men worldwide face increased odds of developing heart disease, diabetes and cancer. It recommends 150 minutes week of moderate exercise. Beerntsen says that can be done easily at the Y any time of the year.
Beerntsen says the Y also offers programs to help people learn to avert diabetes through moderate exercise and healthy eating.
