Show Notes

Our guest on this episode of the On the Move podcast is Tiffany Copeland, Director of the Fitness Warriors program for Sports Backers. Tiffany gives us a detailed overview of the Fitness Warriors, the innovative program that is addressing health disparities through active living in communities throughout central Virginia. The program has become a national model for creating fitness opportunities, and Tiffany shared more details on a recent trip to take part in a White House conference on building healthy and active communities.

We also discussed Tiffany’s own personal fitness journey and how that led her to the Fitness Warriors, plus she shared updates on the program and how community members can get involved in the next class of Warriors.

Applications for the next class of the Fitness Warriors are open until October 31 and can be found online at www.sportsbackers.org/program/fitness-warriors/ and you can also learn more on social media @RVAFitnessWarriors.
