FITGO

A New Year’s Fitness Challenge That Shakes Up Your Wellness Routine and Has You Shouting, BINGO!

fitgo-card

Motivation can be a mysterious minx. One day, you can’t wait to climb a mountain on the Stairmaster, and the next you can’t muster the motivation to step inside the Y. Excuses creep up, inspiration fades and your fitness routine is officially a fond memory. But it doesn’t have to be so. Our FITGO New Year’s Challenge is the perfect way to harness inspiration for your perspiration. 

FITGO helps you explore all that the Y has to offer, kick off your 2023 goals and have some fun.

Just grab a FITGO card from a YMCA front desk or wellness desk. Start checking off squares. When you have a bingo (6 squares in a row in any direction), fill out a raffle ticket at the wellness desk at your YMCA, and you’ll be entered to win a prize from our weekly drawings, including a free personal training session, a free InBody Scan, super cool YMCA swag and more. Plus, when your FITGO card is completed — we call that a blackout — participants can turn in their cards to receive a T-shirt and entry into our grand prize. Best of all, you’ll have made new friends, tried new classes, had some fun and now feel at home at the Y.

Challenge begins Jan 15 and ends on Feb 28.

We are using the honor system. Participants do not need to get each box checked by staff due to the potential volume of participants. One shirt per person.

  • Ages: 15+
  • Free

You Are What You Eat

Nutrition goes hand-in-hand with an active lifestyle, and we’ve partnered with Natural Grocers to bring you nutritional advice and classes led by registered dietitians and nutrition coaches. Join the 21 Days to a Healthier You Challenge, check out our events page for upcoming Natural Grocers classes in the Y or sign up for your free nutrition consultation here.

Get a Baseline

Before you begin any fitness or nutrition program, it’s a great idea to get a feel for where you’re starting, so you can determine where you want to go!

InBody Scan

Our wellness staff can assist you in signing up for and completing your free InBody scan, which provides data on your current weight, body composition, body fat and more. After your free initial scan, regular InBody scans are available to members for $25 per scan and non-members for $35 per scan so that you can check your progress.

Heart Health

Your target heart rate represents an ideal heart rate range (beats per minute) that you should strive to maintain during aerobic activity, based on your age and activity level. Calculate your maximum heart rate and target heart rate using this calculator.

Know Your Macros

Calculate your ideal daily calorie intake for protein, carbohydrates and fat based on your current body weight and body composition goals with this helpful calculator and macro-nutrient ratio guide.
