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. After completion of the program Fitness Warriors teach a weekly FUN, FREE fitness class in the community which is opened to all fitness levels and ages!
