Photo feature: Fit for the Fight

What does it take to get fit and lose pounds in the process? It takes teamwork, and for a group of local women, it takes Team Fit Natchez.

Started by Ashley Sproulls, Team Fit Natchez is a group of local women relying on one another’s motivation and positive energy to adopt a healthy lifestyle and fight obesity.

At the top of the steps on the north end of the Natchez Trails, Team Fit Natchez goes through their regular exercise routine of jumping jacks and running up and down the steps several times.

Takeisha Owens, at top, makes the last flight of steps. The group has a Facebook page at facebook.com/teamfit.ntz.
