Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) The misconception of what healthy looks like. Play the video to hear from fitness trainer Lindsay Fletcher from the Cheyenne YMCA. Some of her talking points are below.

-There is no mold for what a healthy man or woman looks like

-Skinny does not mean healthy

The Y welcomes all body types

There are those who can walk into a gym and know what they are doing and feel comfortable but there are those who need a little help, and that is what we are here for.

We are not here to focus on just losing weight or building muscle, but we are here to help you have more energy to play with your kids, or to keep your mobility longer, or to build endurance and strength to keep up with the demands of your every day life. We want to encourage life focused goals.

The Y instructors are real people

We have real life experiences and real life struggles

We are focused on helping you achieve your goals because we know your struggles

We represent all body types because we do not believe that Healthy looks the same on everyone

We are here because we truly believe in helping people achieve a healthier life through a community of people
