HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Members of the Boys and Girls Club scaled walls, battled gladiators and pulled sandbags at a Spartan Race Fitness clinic held at the Spalding Clubhouse on Wednesday.
The event was hosted by organizers of the Spartan Race Hawaii, a physical fitness challenge that will occur later on this month.
"We want to be able to encourage children to continue to move, get off the couch, be part of the lifestyles that many of us grew up in say the 80's or 90's, before the xbox came along," certified Spartan Race trainer J.J. Blue said.
The goal of the workout was to encourage kids to develop a passion for fitness at an early age. Participants included elementary and middle school aged keiki.
