Newswise — Baltimore, MD, May 20, 2017– The Joel Gamble Foundation (TJGF) is launching an exciting partnership with LifeBridge Health & Fitness and the Baltimore City Police Department designed to show inner city youth how to improve their athletic performance, their life skills and their self-confidence. The new initiative is part of TJGF’s established Health and Wellness Program, which was created to teach young men how to make healthy choices through exercise, nutrition and health care.
As part of the program, a group of young men will attend the Parisi Speed School at LifeBridge Health & Fitness in Pikesville every Tuesday evening for eight weeks beginning at the end of June. Certified trainers will work with these student athletes for 90 minute sessions on their speed, agility, power and confidence by using a sprinting track, dumbbells, performance treadmills and plyometric boxes.
Additionally, officers from the Baltimore City Police Department will join this group of high school students in their training at the Parisi School, in an effort to build lasting bonds and communication that will continue throughout the school year and beyond.
Healthy meals, served after each workout, will be catered by Debbie’s Cuisine Catering, LLC.
