Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired in these COVID-19 times? The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati invites all in the community to participate in a free six-week STRONG challenge designed to help transform spirit, mind and body. “Now, more than ever before we need to recharge and refocus,” said YMCA of Greater Cincinnati President and CEO Jorge Perez. “The COVID-19 pandemic has worn us down. It’s isolated us in so many ways. This challenge provides an opportunity to get active and healthier by yourself or as a Strong family.”
Opt-in to the free challenge by texting STRONG to 844.889.6222. Follow the prompts to sign-up and you will receive three texts a week filled with motivation, challenges, workouts and more. You will also be able to attend the Y for one day each week to enjoy swimming, working out and a variety of classes.
Everyone in the community is also invited to workout wherever you are, taking free YMCA live Zoom online classes like Zumba, yoga and HIIT. The complete weekly schedule is available at MyY.org/live. You can also participate in a variety of outdoor activities, like pop-up classes and nature walks. Visit the website MyY.org and learn more about the STRONG challenge and all of the free community activities.
“It’s the perfect time to take back our lives, reenergize, achieve goals, feel better and stronger,” added Perez.
