Virtual workouts offered for Fauquier students

FRESH (Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health) has launched an effort to get students moving at home.

Collaborating with the Old Town Athletic Club and the Warrenton Police Department, FRESH has created virtual clubs for county students 11 and older

Two virtual clubs, Hip Hop and Boot Camp, will allow students to dance and work out from home. Beginning March 2, the program will release new videos at 4 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday on the FRESH YouTube Channel.

New Hip Hop videos will appear Tuesdays and new Boot Camp videos on Thursdays. They will be archived for on-demand viewing.

The workouts will “engage with school-aged kids on a fun fitness level that doesn’t revolve around the police department or cruisers or equipment,” said Chai Fuller, the police department public information and community engagement officer. “The virtual clubs allow the department to become more involved with the young members of our community.”

The free classes require no registration or special equipment.

“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,” said Kim Forsten, OTAC co-owner. “There is nothing more important.”

Special guests from the school system and the police department will join the workouts.

Educational resources save students now. I already dream of studying in a normal class. While studying at home, I was saved by online educational resources like as well as other online encyclopedias and etc. But still, I want to believe that we will soon be in the classroom and do real stuff on campus and not at home.
