EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Several studies have shown that mental health and exercise are intertwined, and for one gym in Horizon City -- each Saturday they gather for a free spin class working out both together.
Xtreme Core Fitness has been offering these classes for years, starting each Saturday at 8 a.m. ABC-7's Be Mindful correspondent Avery Martinez joined the class to see how it works, and gives us an insight into how the classes work.
You can find more information on the free program on the Xtreme Core Fitness website. The gym is located at 125 N Kenazo Ave. in Horizon City.
Avery Martinez covers mental health in the Borderland as part of ABC-7’s Be Mindful initiative. He is also a Report for America corps member. RFA places talented, emerging journalists in newsrooms like ABC-7’s to report on under-covered issues and communities. Report for America is an initiative of The GroundTruth Project, an award-winning nonprofit journalism organization dedicated to rebuilding journalism from the ground up.
