Exergaming, which combines exercise and video gaming, can be a beneficial addition to YMCA facilities for several reasons.  Exergaming encourages physical activity in a fun and engaging way. It appeals to individuals, especially children and teenagers, who may be reluctant to participate in traditional gym workouts or sports.

By offering exergaming, YMCAs can attract and engage a younger demographic that is more accustomed to technology and video games.  Here are some recent success stories of Exergaming and how it’s being used in YMCA’s across the USA.

YMCAs can charge additional fees for access to exergaming facilities or classes, which can help generate revenue to support the organization’s mission and services.  It also offers a social element that aligns with the YMCA’s focus on building strong community bonds and can help foster relationships among members.
