If you were at last year’s Huntington Games, you probably remember the feeling of victory…or the gut-wrenching agony of defeat. If you missed it, you now have an opportunity to experience this high-intensity competition for yourself. So, round up your team, strap on your sneakers, and take your training up a notch, because round 2 is here: Huntington Games 2018.
Step up to this intra-industry wellness and team building competition where your employees will compete against fellow real estate industry colleagues for the coveted Huntington Cup.
Continuing in the footsteps of last year’s tournament, your sponsorship of Huntington Games 2018 supports America’s First Y - the Huntington Avenue YMCA - which promotes youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility to over 10,000 Bostonians each year.
This year, your sponsorship supports transformational programs like “Teen Achievers” which help Boston teens discover and pursue higher education and career goals by equipping them with the skills and community role models they need. Your contribution also funds the YMCA’s Summer Camp programs which keep 100 kids per week safe, engaged, healthy and learning.
Join us on Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 1:30pm - 5:00pm for a great time and a great workout that will make a great difference in the lives of the members of our community who need it most.
There will be five stations set up throughout the Huntington Avenue YMCA. Each team will participate in all five stations with a different challenge at each station.
Points will be awarded for the following events:
Points will be awarded to each of the top 5 spinners according to the highest RPM reading on their stationary bike.
Each participant will take a mini yoga class followed by 3 tests: Tree Pose for Balance, Warrior 3 for Strength, and Forward Fold for Flexibility.
Each participant will complete 3 strength/cardio circuits within the allotted 20 minutes. Points will be awarded according to the number of rounds performed.
Challenges include sack races, dizzy bat races, basketball shots and relay races.
Groups will be split into 2 teams at this station. Points will be awarded to everyone on the winning team of each game within the allotted time frame.
Opportunities for additional team points include CEO participation, additional employees attending as “pep squad”, volunteerism, and attending reception.
