100 Days of Summer Fitness Challenge

May 31, 2020 to September 7, 2020

The JCC Association’s 100 Days of Summer Fitness Challenge is back!

Let’s win another one for Pittsburgh!

Now, more than ever, it’s critical to stay connected. During these unprecedented times, we need to exercise to help us stay strong and healthy—physically and mentally. Go head-to-head with JCC participants across the continent in your favorite form of exercise. Whether you’re into strength training, running, group exercise, swimming, or something else, you’ll have a chance to test your mettle.

Register and log your workouts HERE

Questions? Email Bill Herman 

The #JCCSummerFitChallenge begins on May 31, and ends on Labor Day, September 7. Make sure you’re part of the action. Anyone 13 years old or older can compete; each participant, however, must have a unique email address.

New for 2020 — Family Division!

Families will be encouraged to track their activity time each day. One family member (who also can compete as an individual using the same email address) will enter the family’s total daily activity time.

Sample Day

  • Parent and child swim class – 30 minutes (virtual or in person)
  • Family bike ride – 60 minutes
  • Parent and child gardening – 45 minutes
  • Total daily activity time for that family – 135 minutes

This program is based entirely on the honor system.

Log miles/yards/classes attended for the following:

  • Running (indoor and outdoor)
  • Walking (indoor and outdoor)
  • Cycling (indoor and outdoor)
  • Swimming (enter score by yards, whether it’s at your JCC, in your backyard, or in open water)
  • Using cardio equipment (ellipticals, rowers, steppers, etc.)
  • Participating in group fitness classes (any type of class—virtual or in-person)
  • Participating in strength training activities
  • Working with a personal training (virtual or in-person)
  • Exercising together as a family (enter score in minutes)

Each workout must be recorded within seven (7) days, after which the data will not be accepted.

JCC Association will present awards to:

  • The top three JCCs (for each JCC size group) in each of the nine fitness categories (108 total team awards)
  • The top three individual champions in each of the nine fitness categories (27 total individual awards)
  • The top three JCC staff in each of the nine fitness categories (27 total individuals)

Activities individuals do at home, at the JCC, on vacation, or elsewhere should all be recorded.

The 100 Days of Summer Fitness Challenge is a signature program of the JCC Association.
