Around the World in 90 Days

Fitness Challenge

Starting January 22

Lace your kicks up tight because it’s time for a fitness expedition unlike any other: The Y’s Around the World in 90 Days Fitness Challenge. This 90-day program will challenge you to complete various exercises throughout the YMCA and earn enough miles to travel around the globe along the way.

Participants will log each of their workouts using a tracking sheet and rack up miles for each minute completed. The goal of the challenge is to complete a total of 24,901 miles, or approximately 1,915 miles per week. The longer you exercise, the more miles you will travel! Hint: If you plan accordingly, you can reach the goal by exercising between 3 and 3.5 hours per week.


  • Wellness Center – Earn 5 Miles Per Minute
    • i.e. 30 Minutes on Treadmill = 150 Miles
  • Track or Pool – Earn 10 Miles Per Minute
    • i.e. 25 Minutes of Swimming = 250 Miles
  • Group Fitness Classes – Earn 10 Miles Per Minute
    • i.e. 30 Minute Class = 300 Miles

Prizes will be awarded to the individual who finishes first and the individual that completes the most miles. All finishers will receive the T-shirt pictured and be entered into a drawing for additional prizes.

Phase 2 of Expansion Now Underway

Phase 2 of the C.W. Avery Family YMCA renovation project, which includes the expansion of the Wellness Center, is now underway. In addition to significantly increasing the square-footage of the Wellness Center, the Y will be adding new group exercise space and increasing the number of cardio and strength machines available to members. This new space will provide health seekers with limitless opportunities to train smarter and more effectively.

We appreciate your continued patience during the construction period and apologize for the inconvenience. For more information on our Wellness Center expansion, please visit our online headquarters.

Try The Y’s Swim Lesson Selector

To accompany its new swim lesson curriculum, the Y is happy to introduce it’s Swim Lesson Selector. Available online today, this tool is a must-try for parents who are interested in enrolling their children in YMCA swimming lessons.

By answering short “yes-or-no” questions—and in some cases, by watching a short video—the Swim Lesson Selector can help you quickly identify which swim stage is right for your child.
