LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – One local fitness instructor is donating his time and giving back to his community by providing free workout lessons.
D’Marcus Ingram is a certified personal trainer in North Little Rock. He says he played sports all his life, dedicating his life to health and fitness.
However, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit he saw people in his community struggling with their fitness goals.
Some of his former clients even complained about sudden weight gain.
With a few gyms still closed and several people struggling financially, Ingram says he felt it was important for him to find a way to help.
“Kind of my way just to give back. This is where I am from and I feel it’s the least I can do. One of my strengths in life period is being in physical condition and I just want to share my talents with my community,” said Ingram.
Ingram offers one hour outdoor workouts three days a week.
He asks that you bring a mask to respect social distancing practices. He is also following CDC guidelines by helping keep people spaced more than six feet apart during workout sessions.
