LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA (January 15, 2021) – Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired in these COVID-19 times? The YMCA of Central Virginia invites all in the community to participate in a free six-week Reset challenge designed to help transform spirit, mind and body. “Now, more than ever before we need to recharge and refocus,” said YMCA of Central Virginia CEO Jay Parker. “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.”
Beginning in January 2021, you can opt-in to the free challenge by texting RESET to 313131. Follow the prompts to sign-up for the challenge that begins in February. You will receive three texts a week filled with motivation, challenges, workouts and more. Participating in the Reset challenge will also let you attend the Y for one day each week to enjoy swimming, working out and a variety of classes.
Additionally, those that participate in the challenge will also gain access to Virtual Y through March 2021 and workout wherever you are. Free YMCA live and On Demand classes will be available including Zumba, yoga, HIIT and many more. Programming is also available for children. The complete weekly schedule is available at stronglife.org/reset/ or by visiting ymcacva.org/reset.
You can also participate in a variety of outdoor activities like walking and hiking groups.
