Fitness and Fun Jumpstart New West Virginia Activity Plan at the Capitol
The challenge of achieving healthy lifestyles and physical fitness was extended to West Virginians today with the start of a new program called the West Virginia Physical Activity Plan. Athletes, dancers, and promoters of health and wellness from all over the state convened at the Capitol today to offer free advice and live demonstrations as to how West Virginians can get in on the action. The West Virginia Physical Activity Plan has one main objective: address the importance of physical wellness, support healthy lifestyles, and better the quality of life for the citizens of our state.

Attending the program's launch today were several West Virginia citizens, as well as former NBA star and Hall of Famer, Dominique Wilkins, and "America's Got Talent" winner, Landau Eugene Murphy, Junior. Avid supporter of the program, Senator Ron Stollings, introduced Wilkins and Murphy, who spoke briefly on the subject of health and wellness. Murphy stressed the importance of encouraging the children of West Virginia to be healthy and strive for physically fitness.

Other participants in today's activities included Zumba Instructors and dancers who showed constituents and lawmakers alike how easy it can be to maintain a healthy lifestyle through high intensity dance aerobics. Fitness Instructor, Cathy Capps-Amburgey led the group during several routines and offered free one day passes to anyone who would like to join the fun at the Kanawha Valley YMCA.
