Occoquan Bay Performance Gym has been working with members of Prince William County Boys & Girls Clubs on health and fitness.
The gym, located at 1235 Featherstone Road in Woodbridge, has been working with the children on their strength and endurance.
“We partner with the Boys & Girls Club to provide an afterschool opportunity for youth in the area – from middle school to high school age kids – so they can have access to group fitness classes, mentorship, and leadership,” said CEO Nick Mann.
During their workouts, Mann has been teaching the students how to safely and properly complete different workout moves.
“We’ve seen drastic improvements, just in body awareness, as well as in moving some weight, and being able to add muscle and strength to their bodies. It really plays over into how they move on a daily basis,” said Mann.
Mann has been working with the students for more than three months.
“What I’m most proud of is seeing their attitude adjustment and their dealing with each other,” said Mann.
