YMCA invites you to join a free challenge to reenergize spirit, mind and body during the ongoing coronavirus suppressions and restrictions. For all ages – We got this!
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 5, 2020) – We are all sick and tired of feeling sick and tired in these times of COVID-19. We can’t go to the gym, socialize, many of us are working from home without the interaction of our coworkers and friends.
Senior centers have closed, taking away important interaction, exercise and fellowship.
The YMCA of East Tennessee is offering a reprieve. A free six-week STRONG challenge to help reconnect, reenergize and transform your spirit, mind, and body. The program runs Oct. 19-Nov. 28.
“It’s the perfect time to take back our lives, reenergize, achieve goals, feel better and get stronger together, as individuals and as a community,” Dickson added.
The program runs Oct. 19-Nov. 28, so you have a few days left to enroll. Everyone in the community is invited to work out wherever you are, with free YMCA online classes; Boot Camp, Yoga and Barre. The challenge also encourages you to take advantage of local outdoor amenities, like the greenway system and Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness. But the Y’s STRONG challenge focuses on more than just physical activity, encouraging you to play, rest, connect with your support system, and serve your community.
Visit the website to learn more and to participate in the Y-STRONG free 6-week challenge. You can also enroll by texting STRONG to 855-717-9622; then follow the prompts to sign up. You will get three texts a week filled with motivation, challenges, workouts and more. The program runs Oct. 19-Nov. 28.
“Now, more than ever before, we need to recharge and refocus,” YMCA of East Tennessee President and CEO Jim Dickson said. “The COVID-19 pandemic has worn us down. It’s isolated us in so many ways. Let’s stop letting life go by and get back to living the life we’ve been given.”
