Saturday was the annual WOW Fitness Boot Camp at FedEx Field as plenty of women were able to get a sweat on with certified trainers and Redskins players.
The Women of the Washington Redskins (WOW) partnered with celebrity Nike trainer Deanna Robinson Saturday to hold the annual Fitness Boot Camp at a warm FedExField.
Members of WOW participated in a series of drills and team exercises throughout the stadium as Robinson, her team of certified trainers and Redskins players Jonathan Allen and Fabian Moreau were on hand to get the best out of the ladies.
Following an energized group warm up that featured music from DJ P Knock, the women were split up into groups that participated in four different stations. The stations included a variety of drills with Robinson at the Bud Light Party Pavilion, partner exercises on the concourse, stair drills in the lower seating level of the FedEx Field and abdominal conditioning in the locker room.
Needless to say, those in attendance went through a pretty tough work out.
“It is awesome,” Robinson said. “It’s amazing, the ladies love it, I love it. I love bringing the ladies out here. Often times as women, it’s hard for us to make ourselves a priority because we are always thinking about our families and thinking about the people we love first and so it’s amazing to have these ladies out here and they are actually taking their time out for themselves to make themselves a priority.
With the NFL season still a few months away from starting, Fuller and Moreau were excited for the ability to interact with the fans.
“Really just being able to get out here especially being at the stadium. Just coming out here to support them, all the support that they give us during the year,” Fuller said. “Just being able to come out here during the off-season to support them, it means a lot because they all know how much stuff we could be doing and things like that. So just seeing us be able to come out to these events, come out to the community, just shows how much we care.”
Those in attendance were also entered into a raffle following the workout. The winners, including a very excited winner of a Ryan Kerrigan autographed football, were understandably thrilled.
Above all, Robinson wanted to make sure there were smiles on the faces of those in attendance, and there were plenty of happy women at FedExField Saturday.
“Even during the warm up, I told the ladies that my number one rule is that you have fun,” Robinson said. “So if you have an injury, we can give you modified versions of the exercises. I just want them to come out here and make themselves a priority, focus on health and fitness and have a lot of fun.”
