Prof. Ryan Martin (Psychology) is helping the local YMCAs inspire others to make healthy lifestyle choices. Martin’s video about emotions and anger, and refocusing your anger (politics, covid, general unrest) for good, was part of the program launch and is now on YouTube.
“RESET” is a free, six-week transformation challenge. You don’t have to be a Y member, you don’t need to transform inside the Y, it can all be done virtually or on your own with a walk, or workout of the day.
Sign-up for the RESET Challenge and the YMCA will deliver emails, inspiring video content and help participants to support each other through social media. The end goal… move at minimum of 30 minutes/day, 5 days/week. Each of the six weeks has a theme RESET, REFRESH, RECONNECT, REPLAY, REINVEST, RESTORE. It’s about more than physical fitness, but movement is the base component.
The end goal is to engage 2,000 people in the six-week challenge that begins Feb. 1, 2021. Across the country there will be 10s of thousands of people doing the same challenge during the same time.
