Ricky Martin has worked in the fitness industry for more than 30 years. He co-created Fitness Warriors through Sportsbackers, a program that offers free group fitness classes to underserved communities in Richmond.
Now, Martin has founded a new nonprofit, Fit2Give, which provides in-home personal training to help those who were extremely isolated during the pandemic stay mentally and physically healthy.
Certified through the University of Virginia and the CDC, Fit2Give has also launched a diabetes prevention program to level the playing field around health disparities in Central Virginia’s low income populations.
