Is staying at home making you feel more than a little antsy? Are the kids bouncing off the walls? Do you want a fun way to get up and move around a little?
YWCA Tri-County Area has an antidote for cabin fever: virtual YW CHAMPS fitness sessions, in your living room, each Tuesday and Thursday via Facebook and YouTube.
YW CHAMPS is YW’s fitness and nutrition program for preschool children; YW provides the program to 14 preschool classrooms in the Tri-County Area, supported by the Edna G. Kynett Memorial Foundation. YW C.H.A.M.P.S. or Children Health And Movement Program Series, consists of weekly nutrition education, stress reduction techniques, mindfulness and physical education programming.
While YW programming is suspended because of the COVID-19 shutdown, “Miss Kelly” Earnshaw of YW’s Youth Empowerment Program will present virtual live YW CHAMPS sessions at 10:30 a.m. each Tuesday and Thursday on YW’s Facebook page. YW CHAMPS mixes cardio, strength, stretching, balance, yoga, and breathing for a 30-minute session that will get you moving and will help you manage stress. Miss Kelly also will offer suggestions for healthy snacks.
Each YW CHAMPS session will be recorded and available for virtual viewing anytime on YW’s Facebook page and on YW’s YouTube channel. While the program is designed for preschool children, all ages will benefit from these fun exercise routines.
YW C.H.A.M.P.S. is a part of YWCA Tri-County Area’s Youth Empowerment Program, a multi-faceted initiative to help youth build the skills, habits, and knowledge needed for success in school and beyond.
