Did You Know?
Group X Challenge
February 12 - March 25
Heat things up this winter by participating in our Group X Challenge! This is an 8-week challenge where you'll get more energy, more strength and more endurance all while building relationships and forming habits.  Plus, we'll be giving away weekly prizes!

HOW DOES IT WORK?                                    
1.) Pick up a Group X Challenge Tracker Card at the Welcome Desk or Group Exercise rooms. Whenever you attend a class, ask the instructor to initial a box on the card. You get one point per workout and you can earn up to FIVE [5] bonus points for working out each week. Turn in your card each week and pick up another.

2.) It's Better Together, so we'll be providing you with Group X Guest Passes during the challenge to earn extra points. Your guest will be allowed to experience the class for free and you will earn [1] bonus point for each guest you bring. Earn FIVE [5] bonus points if your guest becomes a member. Make sure to return completed Guest Passes to the Welcome Desk so you get full credit!

3.) Every Week there is a prize drawing. Turn in your Challenge Tracker Card or Group X Guest Pass for points that week and your name will be entered in the drawing for a weekly prize. Our prizes get bigger with each week, and as long as you keep participating, you can win a weekly prize!

4.) The grand prize is awarded to the member with the highest number of total points at the end of the Group X Challenge. Must be a member of the YMCA of Virginia's Blue Ridge to win.
