fitALANYC was introduced as a part of the new Mind Body and Soul vision, viewing our members holistically and addressing their educational, emotional, philanthropic and physical needs.

fitALANYC encompasses the physical, psychological and nutritional well-being of our members. It offers opportunities for exercise and yoga, mental health awareness and training, nutrition workshops, and wellness training.

fitALANYC enhances the learning and member experience by providing programs and services that promote healthy lifestyles, mindfulness training, build community by fostering member engagement and chapter success.

We hope you will be inspired to take advantage of this new program that was created just for you!


Recent Events

Second Annual ALANYC 10,000 Step Challenge
For the second year, we presented the ALANYC 10,000 Step Challenge, a collaboration between the ALANYC Sustainability & fitALANYC teams. The challenge was held from June 6 – June 9. We established six teams and winners were announced at the ALANYC Summer Party on June 12.

This year’s theme for the United Nation’s World Environment Day (June 5) was air pollution. Addressing air pollution and improving air quality promotes good health and the environment. During this week, we asked participants to keep in mind their eco footprint and choose to walk in lieu of using other forms of transportation. We also asked them to take note of the beauty all around you by taking photos that relate to air quality. Challenge participants took many wonderful photos showing how important clean air is in all the things we do.  YOU VOTED for your favorites.  The photo that received the most votes is the one below which was taken by Audrey Serban. Congratulations to Audrey!  Perfectly titled: CO2 to O2.
