The app can be used independently of the in-person class to develop custom fitness routines by creating workout Playlists from more than 150 different activities.
Y-MVP app users can also challenge themselves by taking on Playlists created by certified NYC YMCA Fitness Coaches, and stay motivated by trying out new Playlists added to the Community by other Y-MVP users. Users can train at their own pace, and all of the fitness activities have on-screen instructions and include a variety of intensity and duration levels. Each activity type includes exercises that can be done with an array of equipment, as part of a class or just using ones own bodyweight.
The Y-MVP app is part of our deep commitment to providing New York City youth with the tools they need to lead healthy and fulfilling lives, said Lori Rose Benson, Vice President of Healthy Lifestyles at the YMCA of Greater New York. Childhood obesity is a critical issue and we continue to invest in and explore new ways to make exercise fun and approachable for youth and New Yorkers of all ages. By employing the same game mechanics that often keep kids glued to the couch, Y-MVP aims to moves sedentary, first-time teen exercisers along a clear path to setting and achieving personal fitness goals.
