Y-MVP Teen Fitness Challenge

Get Fit. Make Friends. Have Fun.

The Y-MVP Teen Fitness Challenge class is a FREE program designed to engage teens in greater amounts of Moderate to Vigorous Physical activity.   

Over the course of eight-week sessions, fitness coaches lead weekly small group training classes at NYC YMCAs. Teens are guided through a progression of cardio, strength, cross training and flexibility missions and ultimately learn how to set and achieve personal goals. The program blends fun fitness activities with a dynamic mobile app that motivates, recognizes and rewards young people’s MVP levels while helping them to create life-long healthy habits. To learn more, contact us at ymvp@ymcanyc.org.

Why Y-MVP?

Y-MVP was designed to counteract the sharp decline in MVP activity that typically occurs among American teens during adolescence, a decline that is due in part to digital media and high levels of screen time. By employing the same technology that often keep kids glued to the couch, New York City’s YMCA developed an innovative program that promotes adolescent health and helps reverse the nation's obesity epidemic.
