Luke Rhodes Workout Session
Our Fuel Up to Play 60 team hosted a school- wide morning workout with NFL player (Colts) Luke Rhodes and his local personal trainer. Luke graduated from Hollidaysburg a few years ago and gets back to town on occasion. Our FUTP 60 team advertised their arrival and workout session on the announcements and website a few weeks before the event. It was a blast and a huge success! The turnout was amazing. We had over a hundred students, staff and administrators attend. It was a great way to promote the importance of being healthy and fit. Luke also stuck around for autographs and pictures afterwards. It was definitely a morning filled with fun, music, sweat, and memories!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

All students and adults in attendance followed the personal trainer's workout activities. Luke Rhodes (Colts player) was a great role model by putting himself in the middle of the kids and working out with us. Our Fuel Up team all wore their tee-shirts and offered help to students who were struggling with certain exercises.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goal with good planning, teamwork, and promotion of the event.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

I originally wanted to have this event during school hours but was told that the kids could't be pulled out of classes due to another assembly that week. We then arranged for the program to take place before school in the morning.
