NYC Fitness Gurus Offer Free Workout in Byrd Park

Join New York fitness gurus Lisa and Priest Priestly of WholeLifeStyles Inc. for a free workout in Byrd Park beside Fountain Lake on Saturday, Aug. 4, at 9 a.m.  The city’s Healthy Richmond Campaign and the Metropolitan Junior Baseball League are partnering to host this event for fans and the public during the Inner City Classic youth baseball tournament, July 31 through August 5.
     Lisa Priestly and Roderick “Priest” Priestly, two of New York City’s top fitness trainers and co-owners of WholeLifeStyles Inc., will lead the workout that is designed for all fitness levels. After the workout, pick up some personal tips and take advantage of the free health and fitness information.
     “We are pleased to have these two fitness ‘stars’ in Richmond to lead this free workout,” said Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Director Dr. Norman Merrifield. “Both the Classic youth baseball tournament and this workout opportunity complement the Mayor’s Healthy Richmond Campaign in promoting healthy lifestyle choices that have a physical and economic impact on the well-being of the entire community.”
     Lisa and Priest take a holistic approach to fitness that incorporates physical fitness, nutritional awareness and mental focus to achieve optimal health. Their integrated approach comes from Lisa’s experiences in personal communications work, Yoga, holistic lifestyle coaching, and Ayurveda along with multiple fitness certifications, and Priest’s focus and discipline gained through martial arts and results-oriented fitness goals.
