Free Community Wellness Challenge Hits the Reset Button

Erie, PA –  It’s time to hit the reset button and re(invigorate) our health routine. What better way to do that than with the Y and literally thousands of people across the US!

The YMCA of Greater Erie invites all in the community to participate in a free six-week RESET challenge designed to help transform spirit, mind and body. The Erie community joins with over 125 YMCA communities nationwide in launching RESET on Feb.1.

“What happens when your body’s hardware is burdened, slow, and endlessly spinning? When your mind, body, and soul are stuck in strange patterns; patterns that are unhealthy and glitch,” asks Gerry Vandemerwe, YMCA of Greater Erie CEO. “RESET will help you fix your glitches. It will give you tools to power you ‘off’ and turn you back on to help restore and reset your hardware.”

According to Vandemerwe, Challenge participants can expect weekly workout suggestions, on-demand and live stream classes, nutrition tips, motivation and connection.

All in the community can opt-in to the free challenge by texting #RESET to 22300 or register at Follow the prompts to sign-up and participants will receive three texts and/or emails a week filled with motivation, challenges, workouts and more.

“Participate on your own time where you’re most comfortable – at home or at the Y- or a combo of both. While an active Y membership is NOT required for RESET participation, it is required if you intend on using the Y. There is plenty of support either way,” said Vandemerwe.

The Y is making available a RESET website, free on-demand and live stream classes, a virtual facebook closed group community and inspirational resource videos.

“It’s the perfect time to take back our lives, reenergize, achieve goals, feel better and stronger,” added Vandemerwe.
