Fitness Warriors

Fitness Warriors

With support from the Richmond City Health District, the Sports Backers’ Fitness Warriors program trains area residents who have talent, passion, and potential to be professional fitness instructors for Richmond’s communities with the highest rates of chronic disease.  Fitness Warriors are selected for their skills and leadership, and we train them up to be certified group exercise teachers. Throughout the program, Warriors meet as a class 1-2 times/month on the weekends and get dedicated training and support from our Warrior Captains.


If being active is something you love, then there is no better way to give back to your community than to help inspire others to be active.


Our goal of becoming the most active city in the country simply won’t happen unless folks like you help support programs like Fitness Warriors.
