Call it rolling recreation!  A “Workout On Wheels:  A Cross ‘Sit’ Experience” is approaching in Luzerne County. The event in Luzerne Borough at Venomous CrossFit is being held this Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Newswatch 16’s Ryan Leckey got a look at the fundraiser and workouts today on Newswatch 16 This Morning.

Just like the fitness craze known as "CrossFit," Saturday's "Cross 'Sit' Experience" will utilize many of the same workout movements such as pull-ups, rowing, and weighted wall balls. However, participants will do all of the workout movements from a wheelchair.

"Workout On Wheels" is raising money for "Individual Abilities In Motion" also known as "I AM." The non-profit based in Northeastern Pennsylvania is dedicated to helping people with spinal cord injuries in "discovering, developing and celebrating their abilities." The money raised helps the group give back to other members of "I AM" in their pursuit of healthy living and exercise.
