Fitness 4 Fun

Saturday, September 17, 2011

from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 

at Tom Brown Park

As a local sports broadcasting program and as college students, the staff at Franchise Sports has had the opportunity to gain insight on the fitness and health aspects of athletes, particularly our local youth. What we have found is that although very talented, the majority of our youth have no real foundation in fitness and lacks the proper knowledge to lead healthy lives. Furthermore, these very vital aspects aren’t being displayed in their homes.
