An exciting workout and weight loss challenge is available at the Oil City YMCA. Members and Non-members can take the challenge and slim down, with a payout for those that lose the specified amount of weight.  Registration is ongoing through Saturday, October 5 at 12:00 p.m.

This fun challenge was developed by Katie Port, Oil City YMCA Wellness Director, to add fun, excitement and goal setting to member workouts.  You don’t need to be a YMCA Member to participate. Non-members are welcome to join the fun.

How Does the Challenge Work?

– Members pay $25.00; Non-members pay $35.00 for the challenge.
