A Paso Robles police officer is offering up free help in staying healthy while sheltering at home.

Dustin Virgil is a student resource officer with the Paso Robles Unified School District.

Virgil says he is a health and fitness enthusiast. Recently, he began offering free weekly workouts and nutritional guidance to city employees.

Now the father of two wants to give back and bring these workouts to students and their families online.

"We can all get stir crazy and what I don't want to happen is to increase screen time and boredom lead to obesity or a full array of other issues," Virgil said. "And so what I am offering is weekly workouts that can be done in the comfort of their own home. Parents, adults can get involved, this can be a family thing that can add positivity."

The workouts are 10 to 15 minutes long.

Virgil includes YouTube videos that demonstrate the movements.

WEEK 1 Workouts!

"This is truly for everyone. At best, we are faced with some challenging days," Virgil said. "This is just an opportunity to come together. At the end of the day, we just have each other. This would be a missed opportunity not to be layering on this education aspect of increasing our level of fitness and our health during these times as it is a hedge against sickness."
