12 Days of Fitness Challenge


Played pickleball? Brought a friend to class? Tried a new exercise? Stood on one foot as long as you can? Thanked a lifeguard for being on duty? The YMCA of Broome County’s 12 Days of Fitness Challenge has stirred up almost as much as excitement as the clatter of 8 reindeer prancing on a roof. The fun challenge, which started on December 11th and runs through December 22, provides a menu of 33 activities (like the ones above), in 4 different categories. Participants need only complete 8 activities, at least one from each category (Wellness Center, Pool, Land Group Exercise and Sports, Outdoors & More), to earn an ornament for their “tree.” Participants can may only earn one ornament per category per day. Completed trees will receive a star sticker and be entered in a drawing for three $50 YMCA gift cards!! Two additional winners who complete the challenge with 4 stickers from one category will also be drawn.


Winners will be announced on December 28th!


Wellness Coordinator, Leanne, says the YMCA of Broome hopes as members visit each of the 4 Wellness Departments that they discover the “so much more” the YMCA of Broome County offers. Steve, from the Wellness Center, says some members seeing the center for the first time, are surprised by all the machines and equipment available for their use. Community Health and Fitness Director, RoQue hopes this challenge will build community in the YMCA by providing options that allow members in every level of fitness to participate!


He added, “You can still complete the 12 Days of Fitness Challenge even if you begin on December 21st! (But, why wait until then?) Stop at Wellness Center or the Front Desk today for more details and your activity tree!               IMG_3444
