Gyms may be closed but there is one way some Detroiters are staying in shape in their own backyards.

They are getting their own gyms installed in an effort to raise money to help provide kids with a musical experience.

“Your body weight is an excellent way to exercise. By being able to either lift your weight or push your body weight up. It stays longer with you than weights,” said Ron Johnson, owner of Spin Inc.. Johnson is building the backyard gym to raise money for the students in his non-profit. Spin Inc. is a DJ and music production program that exposes children to music.

Johnson said, “My goal is to build 50-100 stations and do something for the children.”
