United We Sweat …Let’s get moving Lorain County 

United We Sweat was formed to promote healthy living in Greater Lorain County by raising awareness on the types of fitness and nutrition options available. The collaboration aims to ensure that everyone in Lorain County has access to quality physical activities no matter their location, age or skill level.

If you want to get fit, but are not quite sure what activity is best for you, this September is the time to start moving! You deserve to live healthy. Make it happen this September.

All classes and events are free and open to the public! However, to support United Way of Greater Lorain County donations will be graciously accepted at all class locations.

United We Sweat is brought to Lorain County by the United Way of Greater Lorain County in partnership with The Center For Health & Fitness at the UH Avon Health Center, French Creek YMCA, Lorain County Community College, Lorain County General Health District, Lorain County MetroParksMercy Health & Recreation Center, and the Vermilion Family YMCA.
