Richmond Main Street Initiative - Fitness Classes

We have been able to provide these classes free of cost for participants thanks to support from grants through various funders. The funding amount and availability is dependent on many factors, and is therefore not guaranteed indefinitely. However, we make every effort to seek continued funding and form partnerships that ensure the classes’ continued availability.


Richmond Main Street is dedicated to revitalizing Downtown Richmond…and we know that creating access to healthy foods and exercise activities is an important component to improving our business district and the community.

How the funding for Main Street Fitness Classes works:


In March 2012, we launched free Zumba classes through funding from West County HEAL…and they were a huge success! We are excited to continue to offer these high-energy fitness classes in Downtown with Zumba instructor, Willa ‘Bontle’ Willis, free of cost to all participants. We’re also very excited to continue our fitness class for adults and children: Martial Arts with Master Taylor.

Due to funding constraints, all fitness classes will be on hiatus until further notice. We hope to secure additional funding and resume the classes as soon as possible. Please keep an eye out for updates via email (sign up here), Facebook, and Twitter.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Effective January 6, 2016
