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.

Every month there will be new fitness classes and events to get us moving in Lorain County! So check back often to discover upcoming ways to get fit. You deserve to live healthy—let’s get moving together! 

All classes and events are free and open to the public!  Discover a session near you with our interactive map.

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 Public Health, Lorain County MetroParks, and the Vermilion Family YMCA.

  •  Everyone knows someone with high blood pressure, but how many of us actually know what blood pressure is? Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the artery (big blood vessel) walls as the heart beats. It’s normal for blood pressure to go up and down throughout the day, but if it stays consistently high for a long time, it can damage the heart.

  • Social connectedness is strongly linked to a person's overall health. To better connect older adults to the community, Lorain County Public Health has launched the Buddy Connect Program. The program pairs volunteers* with people who are 55+ -- participants receive two phone calls per month from their buddy volunteer. Once a month home visits are also available.
