SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – You don’t have to train hard to prepare yourself for a better future at one of the area’s most inspiring gyms.

WTOC took a look at how the Community Champions at Performance Initiatives are helping kids in several ways. They are lifting a lot of weight – and a lot of lives.

“My training has been excellent. I came in, I was kind of chubby, but now I’m tall, skinny, muscular,” said Keontay Price.

Price is one of hundreds of young people who has transformed his body and his direction through Kerri Goodrich’s after-school Olympic weightlifting program that is scoring high points across the board.
