NORWICH – The Norwich Family YMCA is initiating a 12-week wellness program, aptly titled the “Better You Challenge.”
This program is designed to challenge individuals to achieve a higher level of fitness, a healthy body weight, and to add new activities into their lives. The program awards participants “activity points” for completing a fitness class, participating in a sports activity, keeping a weekly food journal, staying consistent with their workouts, losing a pound, and ultimately become better, fitter people.
At the end of every week, points will be tallied and awards given. Points will also be tallied at the end of every month, and bigger prizes will be awarded. Finally, at the end of the 12 weeks, the YMCA will award a participant a one-year free membership valued at approximately $400.
