Fitness Warriors: Here We Grow Again!

By: Candace Benn

The Fitness Warriors program provides active living opportunities in our local communities on a daily basis through free quality fitness classes. The program continues to grow with the recent recruitment of Warrior Recruit 5th Class–and the addition of more Fitness Warriors brings an increase in classes in our communities that need them most!

On January 13th, a group of 16 excited individuals joined us for their first day as Fitness Warrior Recruits! Since then, these motivated Recruits have created a bond that has allowed them to learn and laugh together during Phase I of their Fitness Warrior training program. As the month of March comes to an end, these 16 Recruits have settled into the program by accepting the charge to be change agents! They have proven they have what it takes to be effective group fitness instructors and are now moving onto Phase II of their training. They have participated in various outreach events and are teaching free fitness classes in their local community.
