Last week, 1st Sgt. David Worthy, who is the AFA Drill Team and Honor Guard coach at Farragut, received word that the City of St. Petersburg would become a marketing partner with the gym he and his wife, Janeice, started in March. The gym is called St. Pete Burn Boot Camp and it has quickly risen to the ranks as one of the most popular workout programs in the area.
“It’s been incredible,” 1st Sgt. Worthy said. “We’ve had a great response. Some of the Farragut teachers have joined and the program keeps getting more and more popular. It’s a workout program that is both fun and intense.”
The gym’s main facility is located near Farragut at 9699 Bay Pines Blvd. Each day is devoted to doing different exercises. Recently, Worthy decided to hold a free workout at Walter Fuller Park, which caught the eye of a few officials from the St. Petersburg Parks and Recreation Department.
“They saw us out there working out and approached us and told us that they had been trying to get someone to do the free workouts on Saturday mornings,” 1st Sgt. Worthy said. “One thing led to another and they gave us the second Saturday of every month.”
This Saturday, May 14, begins the first official workout. For those interested, the FREE workouts start sharply at 8:00 a.m.and last for one hour. Participants are advised to bring a towel, a water bottle and “a great attitude.” The location is at the northwest corner of Walter Fuller Park 80th Street North and 34th Avenue North.
