January Community Captain of the Month Bridgit Arnold

Active SWV would like to introduce you to our January Community Captain of the Month, Bridgit Arnold!

Tell us about yourself, where are you from?

I was born in Newark, New Jersey. I have lived in Beckley, WV for 28 years now. I am a Program Manager at Region 1 Workforce Development Board. I recently received my Personal Trainer certification through ISSA. I am currently working on my Corrective Exercise Specialist certification. I am very passionate about health and wellness.

What motivated you to volunteer/participate with Active SWV in your community?

I had some health issues back in 2019 which I overcame through the help of our Workplace Wellness Program initiatives at my job and through Active SWV. This program helped me so much. I wanted to volunteer with Active SWV as a way to giveback and encourage physical activity in the community.

How do you stay motivated?

I feel good and I have amazing energy by being active. That’s what keeps me motivated. I want to maintain a healthier lifestyle so being active is a priority for me.

Why do you think someone should join an Active SWV free program?

It’s free! It’s a way to become healthier, stay active, and meet wonderful people.

Do you have any words of encouragement for people (thinking of becoming a Community Captain/participating in a program) that may be interested in committing to becoming more physically active?

Try something new. Active SWV has so many programs that you can benefit from. I guaranteed you will enjoy it and feel so much better. Take care of you!
