An action-packed summer and a busy back-to-school season can mean temporarily putting your fitness routine on hold. But, with only a little over three months left in 2019, the Greater Joliet Area YMCA has the perfect motivation for you to finish out the year strong: National Women’s Health and Fitness Day.
Set for Wednesday, September 25, National Women’s Health and Fitness Day aims to remind women of all ages to about the importance of embracing a healthy lifestyle.
Here are some great tips to help you focus on developing a healthy mind and body:
Try a New Group Exercise Class
At the Y, you’ll be sure to find many group exercise classes that are included with your YMCA membership. To celebrate National Women’s Health and Fitness Day, you may want to consider trying a new group fitness class. If you’ve been thinking about trying yoga, Zumba or other exciting classes, now’s the perfect time!
When planning your trip to the Y, make sure to use our online schedule to view all of the free group fitness classes available at your local branch.
Bring a Friend to the Y
At times, there is no better way to focus on yourself or relieve stress than heading to the gym solo. But, heading to the Y with a friend can be fun and it helps to shake-up your everyday fitness routine. The next time you head to the Y for a workout, consider bringing a friend along by using one of your complimentary guest passes.
Schedule a Health Checkup
If it’s been a while since you’ve seen your doctor, now’s a great time to make an appointment. Being healthy is more than just exercising your body. Balancing your health and physical fitness is key.
As a reminder, registration for fall programming is underway. Fall 2 will kick-off on Monday, October 2. Register online or in-person for your favorite fitness classes. If you have questions about our group exercise classes or personal fitness, be sure to speak with a member of our Wellness team during your next visit.
