Once again the Quincy Family YMCA is having their Fit Start Challenge to get your 2019 started right.

Motivation to get to the gym has never been a strong suit for me. I want to go, but then I never seem to get motivated enough to go. Well, the Quincy Family YMCA wants to help with that motivation.

They will be kicking off their annual Fit Start Challenge January 7, and you can take the challenge as an individual or as a team. This is a contest with prizes at the end, good prizes too. How does a FREE YMCA membership & cash awarded to the top two teams and individual with the highest percentage of weight lost.

You will not be alone in getting to your goal. the YMCA will help you as much as they can. With the challenge you will get daily challenges to accomplish, access to the private Facebook page, free 30 minute personal training sessions (which are great if you can't make it to the gym), and special offers and discounts when you complete the challenge. There will also be weekly weigh-ins to see how well you are doing with getting to your goal. Weigh-ins will be held every other week on Mondays at 7 am - 8:30 am, 11 am - 1 pm, and 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm.

The Fit Start Challenge is available to members ($25) and non-members ($50), and if you would like to sign up contact the YMCA for more information at 222-9622 or quincyymca.net.
