Former NFL stars Ernie and Anthony Thompson took over Terre Haute North High School Saturday morning.
They teamed up with the Vigo County School Corporation for a fitness summit.
The day started heath screenings to check blood sugar, blood pressure, oxygen levels and pulse, then you could hit the gym to get some one-on-one exercise instruction.
Those involved say getting some real football stars, and Terre Haute natives, involved can get a lot of people excited about fitness.
"It wakes people up to see that there are ways that you can eat healthy, with our healthy lunch I goes on, and that fitness should be a big part of everyone's life. Obesity has been a really big problem in we want the community to come together and get a grip on everything," said Jaci Pabst of Blast Inc. Fitness.
Ernie Thompson's Blast Inc. Fitness group meets three mornings and evening a week at the Terre Haute South weight room.
