Sen. Rivera Launches Free Exercise Classes at Poe Park
Senator Gustavo Rivera (D,WF-Bronx) launched Free Exercise Classes at Poe Park (East 192nd Street at Grand Concourse) as part of the Bronx CAN Health Initiative. These weekly exercise 6:30PM classes will allow members of the community to come out and exercise at no cost throughout the month of September. The next two classes will feature Capoeira (a mixed martial art dance) from ABADA - Capoeria NY.
The Free Exercise Classes are part of the Bronx CAN Health Initiative, which Senator Rivera launched in conjunction with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Bronx community organizations in June. The weekly exercise classes will be held every Monday for the month of September. The Bronx CAN Health Initiative is focused on preventative medicine and access to affordable healthcarea for the month of September.
