Are you stuck in a diet or fitness rut, and need something to kickstart your health goals? Our Y is pairing up with Lose It!, boston.com/getmoving and YMCAs from across the region to bring our community a four-week total wellness challenge.

In September, we’re helping our neighbors change or improve their diet and exercise habits - and earn points for participating. The town with the most points will earn the crown of the healthiest town in Eastern Massachusetts. Help your town and YMCA win the Showdown by logging your exercise and healthy meals to contribute to your Y or community’s total! Win hundreds of prizes from brands like New Balance, Oster, HealthoMeter, Fitbit and more. If you already eat well and exercise regularly, join the challenge, log and earn points to help your Y or town win the crown.

We are also hosting free community fitness and nutrition events, in each of our six locations throughout the North Shore to keep you motivated and having fun getting fit!

Visit our website for more details and a 3-day pass to try the North Shore YMCA for free if you aren’t already a member. Register for the challenge today! 

Here’s How It Works:

  • Sign up for the challenge at boston.com/getmoving
  • Fill in your profile, choose your hometown team and your local YMCA.
  • Log your meals, snacks, and exercise on the Lose It!: Showdown app or website throughout the 4-week challenge. Your points are combined with your teammates’ to help your community compete for the healthiest title.
