This weekend, New Yorkers in all five boroughs will get the opportunity to kickstart their fitness journeys.
Fitness expert and founder of Trifecta Strong Paul Bamba is hosting the formal launch of the “5 Borough Challenge” in New York City this Saturday on National Make a Difference Day.
The event will take place in each borough over the course of one day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bamba will execute a social distancing-compliant fitness session in each location at no cost, where he will provide attendees with multi-level combat fitness training techniques as well as tips for maintaining their fitness goals at home during the fall and winter months.
“I am so excited to be bringing an initiative of this magnitude to New York City,” Bamba said. “Fitness and philanthropy are both passions of mine and being able to intertwine them into one cohesive event is something I have always dreamed of doing to impact the lives of the people of our community.”
