Designated Blue Zones Project Work-Site

IMG_0645The Mason City Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a Designated Blue Zones Project Work Site!
The work site pledge provides resources, expertise, and collateral to help complete the pledge items along with detailed information on the research behind each pledge action item.  We encourage your work site to join the movement and become a designated work site.
Throughout the designation, the Chamber has implemented several wellness related items such as offering personality assessments to employees, creating walking routes throughout the Commerce Center, micro walking breaks, and a step tracking program.

The Mason City Family YMCA is dedicated to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

As a proud Blue Zones Designated Worksite, we believe we can better achieve our mission through partnering with the Blue Zones Project.  Making healthy choices easier is important for everyone to truly enjoy a strong community.

As a partner with the Blue Zones Project, we have championed :

  • Healthy snacks for our After School Program
  • Walking Moais
  • Blue Zones recipes with our staff and members
  • Growing fresh vegetables in our own garden
  • And the YMCA is a proud member of the Mason City Volunteer Center

The Mason City Family YMCA is a place to belong for everyone.  Our supportive environment is a great place to meet all of your goals : whether you want to move naturally, spend more time with loved ones or connect more deeply with your community.

For the last 124 years, the Y has always been more than just a gym.  Together with the Blue Zones Project, we are committed to making Mason City better.

For a better you.  For a better community.  For a better us.
