Fit Families Challenge

To participate, families – parents, grandparents, children, colleagues or friends – should register at, exercise at least 15 times for 15 minutes each between March 1-31, and log workouts to be entered to win a variety of prizes. Grand prize items, generously donated by area businesses, include a one-year Centre County YMCA family membership; guided fly fishing trip for two, courtesy of American Fly Fishing Company; to $50 Hoss’s Steak & Sea House gift cards; fitness kit courtesy of Community Engagement Office State College; one-month membership to Kinetik Fitness; four $25 gift certificates to Get Air; and more! Plus, those registered for Fit Families Challenge can sign up for a Centre County YMCA “Be Our Guest” pass for the month of March.

This year Centre Moves is partnering with MoveSpring to make the Fit Families Challenge entirely electronic. With MoveSpring, participants will be able to create a team group (i.e. your family), compete in mini challenges against others, set new goals and watch progress over time. Participants can download the MoveSpring app to connect smartphones, smartwatches, wearable devices to automatically track activity. Tracking can also be manually entered online.
