As a response to Doctors of BC’s urgent recommendations to limit movement and physical interactions as much as possible to help stop the spread of COVID-19, Vancouver Whitecaps FC implemented team at-home fitness sessions with trainers and players at the start of this week.

Today's workout at 9:45 a.m. PT will be co-led by the club's head of physical preparation Jon Poli and co-owner Steve Nash. Nash, a two-time NBA MVP, will also be live throughout the workout on the 'Caps Instagram account @WhitecapsFC.

The video conference workout sessions are overseen by performance strategy, research, & innovation director Dr. Ben Sporer, Poli, and assistant physical preparation coach Max Stanton, with the recommendation of chief medical officer Dr. Jim Bovard.
