What is the Fit Family Challenge?
Nashville Parent’s Fit Family Challenge is a healthy lifestyle program for Nashville metro families. We’re motivating families to get moving and create healthier lifestyles. To participate, register online and track activities for a chance to earn points and win prizes. The Fit Family Challenge is in partnership with Coca-Cola and is sponsored by The YMCA of Middle Tennessee.

How much does it cost?
It’s FREE. There is no cost for Registration or the online Fit Family Challenge Activity Tracker.

Is it too late to join the Challenge?
No, it is never too late to get started. The last day to earn points online is June 10, 2013.

How do you define family?
A family is at least one child under age 18 and one adult in the same household, including grandparents caring for children. Participants under 18 years old must be included in a ‘family’ registration account with at least one adult participant.

How do we qualify for prizes?
To qualify for prizes you must be registered! Register online to begin. To qualify for the Grand Prize drawing, you must also earn at least 100 points by logging your activities in our online Activity Tracker. The more you participate and track your activities online, the more chances you have to win. An additional entry in the drawing is contributed for every 100 points earned. (i.e. the Jones Family earned 325 points = 3 Jones’ family entries in Grand Prize drawing.)

What can we win? 
The 2013 Grand Prize is a family trip to Universal Orlando Resort. Other prizes include bicycles, a YMCA family membership, fitness equipment, Coca-Cola products and Harris Teeter gift cards.

How do I track my activities?
Register online and begin entering your activities in our Activity Tracker. Each time you log an activity, you earn points towards the grand prize drawing.

Once registered, how do I earn points?
It’s easy to earn points! On April 15, you can log into your account at Do any or all of these activities and mark them completed online:

1) Exercise or get active for at least 150 minutes per week [100 points]

2) Practice healthy habits daily/weekly [10 points/habit]
        Healthy habits are defined in the Online Activity Tracker, available April 15.

3) Attend special events and classes [100 points/class or event]
        Stay tuned for our class schedule! There is no limit to how many classes you can attend. Each family the registers online gets a free one day pass to their local YMCA of Middle Tennessee.

Families are considered one unit. Family points are combined and entries are added for each 100 points earned as a family, or individual, to the Grand Prize drawing in June.

If we win a weekly or monthly prize, are we still eligible for the grand prize?
Yes! Weekly and monthly prize -winners are still eligible for the grand prize drawing if they qualified. (To qualify families must earn at least 100 points. )

Do I have to attend Fitness Classes to win?
No. But we encourage your family to attend as many fitness classes and special events as possible. Prizes will be given away at each special event. Plus, each fitness class earns you 100 points.

How do we maintain our healthy lifestyle after the Fit Family Challenge?
The Fit Family Challenge will teach you a lot about fitness and good nutrition. You can keep it up throughout the year. Also, you can pick up Nashville Parent magazine each month for regular tips on healthy living.

We’re confident, that if you follow the challenge and get active for at least one month, you’ll be on your way to adopting a healthier lifestyle for your child(ren), yourself and your entire family!
