Delong Middle School students "Jam the Gym"

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) Kids at an area middle school got a free fitness lesson Monday thanks to one of their students.

Sixth graders at Delong Middle School "Jammed the Gym" with Jeff Rogers, a local trainer from Rogcity Fitness.

Kids got the lesson thanks to Parker Abtsm, a special needs student at the school who has been working out with Rogers for the past several months.

"It's so great what Parker's doing, he brought me here, and its really fun to have all his friends and classmates see him do this and see what he gets to do 3 or 4 times a week," says Rogers.

Nearly 100 kids teachers and the principal all took part in the workout.
