It’s Time to Get Back on Track

September 14-October 25

Does everything about 2020 have you feeling out of whack? Feeling disconnected from your own wellbeing? Ready to get back on track? The YMCA Back on Track Challenge will help you make space in your life for you — and your physical, mental and emotional health. To help you get back on track, we are challenging you to accomplish 6 goals in 6 different areas of your wellbeing over 6 weeks.

  • Get social 6 times: Connect with friends and family, write letters, connect digitally, play games or enjoy a family dinner.
  • Do 5 cardio workouts: Take a cardio-centric class, such as boot camp, cycle, Zumba, group water fitness, etc. Or you can work out independently on a treadmill, elliptical, bike or other cardio equipment. 
  • Lift weights 4 times: Take a class like Les Mills Bodypump, kettlebell boot camp or muscle mix. Or you can lift independently using body weight, free weights or pin select equipment.
  • Get aligned and restored 3 times: Enjoy classes designed to align and restore, such as yoga, Pilates Reformer, mat Pilates, align and restore and foam rolling. Or stretch, roll and do some core exercises on your own for 30 minutes.
  • Challenge your brain 2 times: Snap out of the COVID brain fog with simple games to engage your mind. All classes the week of Oct 12 will feature cognitive enhancing components. Or train your brain on your own by working through puzzles, games or learning a new complex skill or task.
  • Get outdoors at least 1 time: Take a block of time to get a generous dose of Mother Nature. Join us for a Royal Arch Hike on Oct 24. Or organize your own hike, day of gardening, fishing trip, horse-back ride, run, bike ride or enjoy any other favorite outdoor activity. For the Royal Arch hike, we will meet at the NCAR trailhead at 8am on Oct 24. Registration required.

Due to the fires and poor air quality, the Royal Arch hike has been canceled.

Our expert health and fitness staff at the Y will support your efforts by including up to three InBody Scans throughout the 6-week period as well as a goal tracker card. Complete all 6 goals before Oct 25, and you will earn yourself a YMCA T-shirt. 

  • Value: $125 (3 InBody Scans $75, t-shirt $25, Hike $25)
  • Cost: Donate if you can

We know this year has been difficult for many of our members and we know so many of our members stood with us during our closure, so we developed this program to support and thank you all. With that said, if you can donate to the Y to help us continue to provide programs and assistance for your neighbors who need extra support, childcare or membership, we would greatly appreciate it.
