Asheville, N.C., Oct. 5, 2020 – Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired in these COVID-19 times? The YMCA of Western North Carolina invites you to participate in a free six-week STRONG Challenge designed to help transform spirit, mind and body.

Refresh and recharge your life by moving 20 minutes a day, five days a week for six weeks! Every movement counts – walking, running, strength training, cycling, an in-person or virtual group fitness class. What matters is getting active. Name your goals, track your successes, and celebrate your victories. Make your health a priority and reset your life with the STRONG Challenge!

Opt-in to the free challenge on the YMCA of WNC’s mobile app (download here). From there, create an app account if you don’t already have one, then click the Challenges tile. Once you’ve signed up, we’ll send you regular motivation, challenges, workouts and more, so be sure to turn on your app notifications to stay connected.

Everyone in the community is invited to participate in the STRONG Challenge. Y membership is not required. Nonmembers who sign up are eligible for a free seven-day trial to the Y to enjoy swimming, working out and a variety of classes.
