Feel great with the Y and Apple Watch
Closing your Activity Rings with Apple Watch benefits your body and kids in our community. Using the YMCA MN mobile app and your Apple Watch makes it easy to enjoy the rewards of caring for yourself and young people in need.

SMART, WEARABLE FITNESS
The YMCA MN app for Apple Watch allows you to find your favorite classes, participate in challenges, track exercise in real time and so much more. Plus, at select Y locations you can connect your Apple Watch to cardio equipment for precise indoor workout tracking.
Together, we make a real impact
TRACK EFFORTS OVER TIME
You’ll see the direct impact your individual activity, the activity of your local Y, and the activity of all Ys in the area have on a monthly and annual basis. All you have to do is join a challenge, treat yourself to regular physical activity—and in return boost your wellbeing and help kids in need. Everyone wins!
Reward your health
JOIN MONTHLY CHALLENGES
Each month a new fitness challenge appears in the app that invites you to practice healthy habits like cardio and strength training. Challenges will have you focus on the Move, Exercise or Stand ring—and sometimes all three. The more Activity Rings you close on your Apple Watch, the more good you can do. Whether you’re at the Y, at home or on the road, your watch counts it all.
So much more than a gym
HELP LIVE THE Y MISSION
As a nonprofit, the YMCA strives to bring about meaningful change for individuals and communities. To achieve this, everything that we do is designed to focus on three areas—Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. Move for Good allows you to be a champion and a steward for yourself and our community.
Give to local kids
CHANGE A YOUNG PERSON’S LIFE
During a challenge, once a set number of Activity Rings are closed throughout the greater Twin Cities, young people are given free enrollment in programs like Swim Lessons, Camp, Sports and Youth in Government—all of which offer opportunities to learn lifelong skills and make meaningful friendships.
No Apple Watch?
YOU CAN STILL PARTICIPATE
Reward your health and give to local kids using the YMCA MN app on iPhone and Android devices. Challenges in the app offer ways that don’t require an Apple Watch to help give kids free Y program enrollment. If you’re interested in getting the Apple Watch, check the YMCA MN mobile app for buying options.
