YMCA Launches the Strong Challenge

The YMCA invites you to join a free challenge to reenergize your spirit, mind and body. Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired in these COVID-19 times?  The YMCA of Rock River Valley invites all in the community to participate in a free five-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 Rock River Valley CEO Brent Pentenburg. “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.”

The challenge is simple – commit to 20 minutes of movement, five days a week for five weeks. It starts October 19 and runs through November 22. We will share ideas each week along with providing motivation and accountability. There is also a private Facebook group for participants to share and engage online.

Everyone in the community is invited to workout wherever you are. You don’t have to be a Y member or visit the Y to participate. Click here to join the free challenge online. Workouts will be tracked on the Y app. Go to your app store and search for YMCA of Rock River Valley.  

“It’s the perfect time to take back our lives, reenergize, achieve goals, and feel better,” added Pentenburg. “We are stronger together.”
