WORKOUT OF THE DAY
Week 4 (May 4-8)
Do you find that putting together your daily workouts is sometimes a barrier? Do you wish you could be given your workouts? Look no further, the Y’s app now has a Workout of the Day feature!
Every day there is a new workout provided for you that includes cardio and strength training. No equipment is necessary! The goal of this 5-day challenge is to complete the Workout of the Day every day. This challenge is open to Y members and community members.
DAILY WATER CHALLENGE
Week 5 (May 11-15)
The Y is medicine…and so is water! Drinking water provides us with many benefits like increasing energy, promoting weight loss, flushing out toxins, and boosting the immune system.
The goal for this challenge is to drink 8-glasses of water everyday for 5-days. After 5-days, we encourage you to make this a habit! This challenge is open to Y members and community members.
Week 6 (May 18-22)
Happy National Bike Month! Dust off your bike and hit the pavement to enjoy a beautiful scenic ride in the Coulee Region! The goal of this 5-day Biking Challenge is to bike at least 150 minutes (or 30 minutes every day).
As an extra challenge, we will provide a list of destinations for you to bike to. This list will be posted on the Facebook event page which is where we will also encourage you to share photos from your excursions! This challenge is open to Y members and community members.
SPRING INTO FITNESS
Week 1 (April 13-17)
Are you ready to spring into fitness with virtual fitness classes?
This is a 5-day challenge with a goal of completing 4 YMCA virtual fitness classes (or a minimum of 180 minutes).
We encourage you to “mix it up” by completing a variety of classes including Yoga, Strength Training, Cardio, etc. Remember to listen to your body, take breaks when you need it, and have fun!
Week 2 (April 20-24)
This 5-day challenge is meant to encourage us to take more steps every day. This can mean something different for everyone. Let’s work together as a Y team to reach 750,000 steps or 355 miles this week.
Daily Individual Goal:
Very active: 10,000 steps or 5 miles
Somewhat active: 6,000 steps or 3 miles
Not very active: 2,100 steps or 1 mile
Week 3 (April 27-May 1)
Discover a sense of calm and clarity with a daily dose of meditation this week.
There is a common misconception that meditation is about “not thinking.” And that’s just not possible! Instead, meditation is the intention of allowing thoughts and emotions to come, recognizing each, and then letting them go.
This 5-day challenge is meant to encourage you to practice just this. The goal is 5-days of 5-minute meditations.
