Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health (FRESH) is collaborating with Old Town Athletic Club and the Warrenton Police Department to create virtual clubs designed for county students ages 11 and up.
Two virtual clubs, Hip Hop and Boot Camp, will allow students to dance and work out from home. Beginning March 2nd, new videos will be released on the FRESH YouTube Channel every Tuesday and Thursday at 4:00pm. Look for new Hip Hop videos on Tuesdays and Boot Camp on Thursdays. Once released, the videos will be archived for on-demand viewing.
In partnering with FRESH, Officer Chai Fuller, Public Information and Community Engagement Officer for the Warrenton Police Department sees an opportunity for the department to do something fun in the interest of children. She is excited to “engage with school-aged kids on a fun fitness level that doesn’t revolve around the police department or cruisers or equipment. The virtual clubs allow the Department to become more involved with the young members of our community.”
The classes are FREE. There is no need to sign up in advance and no special equipment is necessary for these classes. Easy-to-follow instructors will have students and families breaking a sweat and having fun together in no time. Kim Forsten, co-owner of the Old Town Athletic Club, is eager to collaborate with Fauquier FRESH.
“The pandemic has heightened our awareness for the need of increased community support and for the development of creative and innovative programs that can enhance the overall health and wellness and confidence in our youth. There is nothing more important.”
Join in each week to see special guests from Fauquier County Public Schools and the Warrenton Police Department. For more information on the release and use of the Virtual Clubs, see the FRESH website at https://fauquierfresh.org/videos/or email Kristen McAuliffe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
