BPD Photo of the Day: Officers Participate In Road To The Right Track Fitness Program In Brighton

Boston Police officers from District D-14 in Brighton give some fitness instruction to local youth as part of the Road to the Right Track (RTT) program.  RTT is a track program for youth in Allston-Brighton. Every Saturday, youth between the ages of 10-18 meet to work out on some of the college and university tracks in the Allston-Brighton Area. The practices consist of proper stretching along with dynamic warm-ups as well as distance work-outs and sprint work-outs. The Saturday work-outs are year round and are only one hour per week. The main purpose of these sessions is to encourage proper work-out habits.

Along with the weekly work-outs, the group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month for a Team Meeting. The Team Meetings have a different speaker with a different topic each month. Each topic is chosen to assist members of the team in making good life choices.
