400 join “Biggest Loser” trainer for workout

About 400 people jumped on the “Path to a Better 2016” Saturday morning at Fauquier High School.

They also stretched, crunched and ran in place.

Celebrity fitness trainer Dolvett Quince, of “The Biggest Loser” fame, led the group through a high-energy workout in the school gym. Mr. Quince then spoke at length about attitude and mental health.

“The strongest thing I have isn’t my abs, it’s my spirit . . . It’s my strength within,” Mr. Quince told the crowd. “How do you have the power to get up every morning and do what you do, because of that strength?

“That’s the the core. That’s the nucleus. That’s the source. That’s the sunlight. Be strong. Be better than yesterday. Give a little bit more than what you gave before.”

The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation booked Mr. Quince, who flew from California for the event that ended with participants lining up with him for on-stage photos.

“We wanted to do an event that we could get the entire community behind,” PATH President Christy Connolly said.

The foundation provides lots of financial and structural support for local non-profits. PATH leaders hope Saturday’s event will help individuals adopt healthier habits.

Participants shared personal goals on a big blackboard erected near the gym entrance.

Mr. Quince also drew these names for prizes from the foundation and supporting organizations:

• Suzanne Gerena, one-year membership at the WARF.

• Nicole Polster, one-year membership at the Fauquier Health Wellness Center.

• Nanette Robinson, a six-month Warrenton Yoga membership.

• Jayna Tumblin, a one-year membership at Old Town Athletic Club.

• Su Yankaitis, a sixth-month Parisi Speed School membership.

• Buffy Harris, $1,000 to Community Touch Inc.   

• Donna Keeney, $1,000 to the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter.

• Jennifer Turco, $1,000 to Families 4 Fauquier & Beyond Inc.
