It’s time for a tie-breaker, Tampa Bay! Having both previously won the Treadmill Tuesday title, the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA and YMCA of Florida’s First Coast are going head-to-head in the 2018 Treadmill Tuesday Tie-Breaker – a competition between the Tampa Bay and Northeast Florida communities for the greatest distance traveled on a treadmill.
This free friendly competition takes place Tuesday, March 27 from 6:30am-6:30pm and is open to YMCA members and nonmembers across the entire Tampa Bay and Northeast Florida areas, encouraging physical activity and healthy living among community members.
All Tampa Bay area community members are invited to participate in Treadmill Tuesday by completing a 30-minute treadmill workout at any Tampa YMCA location or by posting on social media. At Tampa Y facilities, staff will record the distance each participant walks, jogs or runs on a treadmill for 30 minutes. To join from home or other locations via Twitter or Facebook, participants should post a post-workout photo of the treadmill dashboard displaying the total distance. Social media participants should use #TreadmillTuesday tagging @TampaYMCA.
In honor of Diabetes Alert Day, certified Tampa YMCA trainers will offer free diabetes risk assessments to Treadmill Tuesday participants and those who qualify will be entered to win a free Y Diabetes Prevention Program class. There will also be free giveaways and chance-drawings at each Tampa Y location throughout the event.
