Wellness Challenges & Workshops

At the YMCA, we know that not every person is motivated by the same things. We also know that having a supportive group of like-minded friends can help you achieve goals you never thought were possible! Our wellness challenges and workshops are held throughout the year. They focus on different areas of strength, different types of workouts and nutrition.
