The Role of a Fitness Ambassador was established during the first year of the Fitness in the Golden Age program. The 30 initial participants who enrolled when the program first began were trained to be role models for the program. These trainings enabled them to act as peer mentors and guide new participants during their training sessions, thus given the title of Fitness Ambassadors.
As Fitness Ambassadors, the participants are mentoring new incoming participants on a one on one or a whole group basis. They also take on the task of being active in their community as a recruiter for the program and promoting physical activity.
