BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A 30 degree day in Buffalo is no longer an excuse to skip the workout as the City introduces Winter Porch Sports. Winter Porch Sports brings outdoor exercise and fitness classes to different parts of the City by having exercise videos playing on a massive LED mobile billboard.

"Buffalo is a four season city," Oswaldo Mestre, Director of Citizen Services for the City of Buffalo said, "we don't take off in the winter, activity happens and everyone has been cooped up inside."

The truck will be at certain parks every Tuesday and Wednesday for about two hours. Twenty minute exercise classes will be played to allow anyone to come out and exercise.

"It's a great way to be active," Mestre said.

The program follows CDC guidelines to ensure proper social distancing and gathering protocols.
