As we all know, people tend to gain weight around the holidays. To encourage YWCA staff to stay healthy this season, the YWCA Wellness Committee is holding a “Holiday Challenge.” Here are the details of the Challenge:
“Pack your gym bag and get your sneakers ready to burn some calories, improve your heart rate, and get stronger!
The challenge is:
1. 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week.
2. To try a new exercise once a week. This could be trying a Yoga class or going for a hike in a new location – any new activity counts.
Record when you exercise in the black book at the front desk.
Each week in December someone from the Wellness Committee will record who met the challenge requirements. Each week those names will be put in a hat for a raffle. Each week we will draw two winners from the names and award prizes. Some of the prizes are $50 gift certificates to restaurants or tickets to plays.”
We encourage other companies to implement a similar program!
