Jail Fitness Program
The Jail Fitness Program is one of the new and innovative ways Rapture is contributing not only to the fitness community but more importantly the jail community. The Jail Fitness Program was created to help build a healthy, positive culture of fitness for inmates. One of our owners, having first-hand experience in jail facilities, saw the need for the instruction of proper exercising. Inmates are constantly looking for ways to stay in shape, utilizing anything they can get their hands on. Instead of using unconventional items, we figured why not give them the proper “equipment’ to use to help attain their goals safely.Program Design- The program is designed to focus on body weight exercises using plyometrics and calisthenics as means of building strength, stamina and endurance. We can utilize any space that our client has to offer us. We create a specific program that fits your facilities needs, detailing things such as how many days a week and the time you need us in your facility.Restorative Justice- We ultimately created the Jail Fitness Program to help create change in not only the inmates, but change in our criminal justice system. By using the framework of restorative practices in everything that we do, we create a safe space to build perspective, understanding and community through physical training and engagement.
