Your Virtual Wellness Center
The Y has always been a place for people to connect and belong, in these strange times, we are learning new ways to do that. Regular exercise is one component of a healthy lifestyle that can help reduce stress and prevent illness. Even though you can’t visit the Y, we want you to stay healthy! We have a variety of at-home exercises, new workouts and healthy activities for you to try, maybe even with your family. Please keep checking back here. We plan to add new classes, programs and challenges every day.
Visit often and stay tuned as we share new ways to connect and more opportunities for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility in our communities.

Stay Healthy Y 600 Challenge Healthy living is an important part of our mission – and we want to keep that mission alive despite our current circumstances. It is important now, more than ever, that we come together as a Y movement to remain connected to each other and foster a sense of community. This challenge combines your Y community with Y-approved workouts – to help you stay active, connected, and motivated outside of the Ys doors. Oh, and to have a little fun and competition while doing so! And it’s Free! https://www.ytraak.org/stayhealthy/
