Fitness enthusiasts and families will gather Saturday, April 14, from 10-11:30 a.m. at 4747 Kester Mill Road, just in time to tap into some free stress relief and to see their donations go toward helping others achieve their fitness, confidence, and safety goals. 

All activities this day are free and open to the public, with donations going directly toward the Arena Health and Fitness Scholarship Fund.  Due to safety, some restrictions may apply with regard to minors participating in some activities.

The morning-long event features opportunities to try out self-defense classes by Armored Team Building, functional fitness activities, and tour the Arena Health and Fitness facility.

“We are on a mission to foster confident members of our community.  We want people to feel they have tools to take care of themselves and their families.  We can’t wait to share our expertise in self-defense with the community,” said Travis Cook, a fifth-degree TKD black belt with over 20 years of Krav Maga instruction and a local reputation for his ability to guide learners of all ages to confidence in self-defense training. 

Ashley Birkedal, owner of AHA Fitness added, “Absolutely, we believe that the fun and supportive approach we bring to fitness creates an environment where function meets transformation.  We want the community to experience the confidence that our approach to fitness and self-defense brings to the area, all while giving back to a great cause!”

As a part of their partnership, Armored Team Building (a Winston-Salem-based team building and leadership development company that works with companies to build relationships through experiential self-defense training) and Arena Health and Fitness (a family-oriented functional fitness facility that focuses on carefully aligning fitness goals with whole person plans) believe in giving back to the community. 

The AHA Scholarship Fund was established to allow those without financial means to gain access to quality fitness assessment and training opportunities.  The scholarship is locally based and awarded through a competitive application process.  It offers a full year of membership at no monetary cost to the recipient.  The scholarship funds the membership, the recipient brings their passion, desire to better themselves, and drive to reach new levels of fitness.
