Who needs Joe Wicks (AKA The Body Coach) when we have our very own East Dallas teacher helping kids stay active while schools are closed because of the coronavirus.

Neighbor Troy Haugen may not have Wicks’ enticing British accent, but the P.E. teacher at Zion Lutheran School at Lovers Lane and Skillman Street seems to have the Avengers on speed dial.

Each week on Marvel Monday, a superhero leads the kids through exercises like superhero jumps, superhero strength pushes, power kicks and other exercises to help kids capture evil villains lurking in their neighborhoods.

The 30-minutes online classes are perfect for kids and adults, in case their crime-fighting kids need a sidekick.

The first Avenger to lead the workout was none other than the undisputed leader, Captain America. Tune in next Monday to see which superhero will help you get a physique that rivals the Hulk.
