IT’S OFFICIAL: GROUP FITNESS CLASSES ARE BETTER FOR REDUCING STRESS THAN SWEATING ON YOUR OWN! AND CLASSES ARE INCLUDED IN YOUR YMCA MEMBERSHIP: https://www.wellandgood.com/good-sweat/group-fitness-classes-best-for-stress-relief/

    It's official: Group fitness classes are better for reducing stress than sweating on your own
    When your body and mind aren't on the same page, it's helpful to have a workout buddy who makes showing up to HIIT class more enticing or encourages you to beat your personal record. And if the communal effects of social sweating seem just a little more effective than your solo gym time, it turns out science agrees with you.

Reaching Out to Little Friends

Philadelphia has one of the greatest park systems in the U.S., and yet many of our residents are either unaware of or disconnected from our public green spaces. In response to this problem, FOW is launching a pilot program, Little Friends of the Wissahickon, to introduce Philadelphia’s public school kindergartners and first graders to Wissahickon Valley Park and inspire them to explore and experience the wilderness in their own city.
