YMCAs across Canada and ParticipACTION have teamed up again in 2022 to help give all Canadians a mood boost by getting them active no matter where they are in their physical activity journey. This partnership features two new video series scheduled for release throughout the winter.
The first video series focuses on low-intensity workouts created to be fun yet still beneficial and varies from low-intensity strength workouts to stretch sessions. The new series is also a collaborative effort in French and English!
All videos from the first series are currently available for free on:
YGym is a free, at-home, virtual physical activity option for children and youth aged 5-15.
Bonus: a weekly YGym contest is available to encourage young people to remain active during school closures. Each week, students can enter into a draw to win a $25 Sport Check gift card. YGym is designed to support e-learning and physical activity curriculum and is available for free in both English and French.
