Wintervention Challenge

February 1 - March 6, 2021

5 weeks. 20 minutes a day. 100s of teammates. 1 better you. 2020 was a year focused on change, innovation, and supporting our families. We believe 2021 should be the year to focus on ourselves. The Y is here to help you do just that.


About Wintervention

Starting February 1, join us for Wintervention - a five week program designed to support your journey towards a better you. Throughout Wintervention, we as a community will be encouraged to 'move' for 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week. To keep things interesting and to encourage a whole better you, each week has been given a theme. The Y will provide motivation, ideas, and activities based on each weekly theme to keep you going. Challenge yourself, have some fun, and give yourself a good Wintervention.


How to Participate

Although registration is closed, you may still join in on Wintervention and access each week's activities on our website. We have also created a private Wintervention Facebook group for all challenge participants to join. This group is for us to come together as a community, post our wellness journeys, and to encourage others as they work to complete the challenge. For those who wish to participate offline, printed copies of the 5 week calendar will be available at each of our Wellness Centers starting Monday, February 1 or you may print your own copy below.


Calendar of Activities

Let's get to the fun part: THE CHALLENGES! Throughout the duration of the challenge, we will be releasing new activities each Friday for you to participate in. We encourage you to participate in any or all of our suggested activities, but feel free to come up with your own! The goal is for you to stay active for at least 20 minutes a day for 5 days each week. The path you choose to take is completely up to you.

Wintervention participants are welcome to join any of our virtual wellness classes for free throughout the challenge!

Week 4: Be Energized (2/22 - 2/28)

Can you believe it? We're more than half way through the Wintervention Challenge! This week is all about energy. During week 4, we're asking all participants to BE ENERGIZED with activities such as:

  • Hitting the gym or join a group exercise class
  • Going for a run or walk inside or out
  • Having an outdoor walking meeting (rather than sitting at your desk)
  • Dancing around the house to your favorite music
  • Playing an active videogame like just dance or beat saber
  • Turning housework or chores into exercise
  • Going on a scavenger hunt at Camp Foss or Camp Mi-Te-Na (Friday, 2/26)
  • Building a snow fort or snowman
  • Swimming at an indoor pool (like at the YMCA)
  • Going snowtubing or cross-country skiing

Many of you have already been posting pictures of these activities, so we know you're going to do great this week! Don't forget, all challenge participants may join our virtual wellness classes for free throughout the challenge. That's an easy way to check off your 20 minutes of activity for the day!

Be sure to mark your activities on your challenge calendar and to share your experiences with all of your accountabilabuddies in the Facebook group.


Week 3: Be Generous (2/15 - 2/21)

Now we're onto week three: BE GENEROUS! Along with our usual 20 minutes of daily physical activity, we are going to tie generosity and kindness into our actions. Ideas include:


Week 2: Be Courageous (2/8 - 2/14)

This week, we encourage you to be courageous and to try something new. Maybe it's something you've always wanted to do or even something that takes you out of your comfort zone. Here are some ideas to get started:


Week 1: Be Adventurous (2/1 - 2/7)

A lot of people choose to hibernate through the winter months, but not us! This week, we are going on an adventure. Choose an adventure below or come up with your own! Click the provided links to learn more about each activity.
