ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - The Battle at Bristol fever extended to the Star City, with people taking part in a game-day inspired workout.

Ferguson Fitness hosted a special Virginia Tech versus Tennessee exercise session. The workout kicked off at 9 a.m.

As the names of the starters on both teams were read aloud, participants did exercises based on their jersey number.

Co-owner Anthony Ferguson said "I think exercise is something that has to be challenging, but also it needs to be fun. It needs to create more of a community and involve people. And I think things like this, friendly rivalries, getting people excited to do something a little different."

The day ended with a round of flag football.
