"This is a really great programme. It really is. This is my third time coming out and each week it's always something different, fun, exciting and a really good workout," Ann Marie Thompson shared with The Gleaner after Saturday morning's Fit 4 Life event at the Police Officers Club in St Andrew.

"Thanks to this Fit 4 Life programme, I'm learning a lot about keeping fit and eating healthier, and I'm exercising more. I'm glad I'm a part of it and I will continue to come out as often as I can."

It was indeed a gruelling boot camp, as The Gleaner's Fit 4 Life team joined the Sweet Energy Fitness Club and Fitness Revolution Club for the early-morning session that featured three circuits - weight training with core, upper body and lower body workout; four-set obstacle course; and aerobics.

Personal trainers Anthony Kepple, Junior Endevarous, Robert 'Astro' Whyte, #livewire MC Sheena-Kay, Shavarr McFarlane, Oneil 'FitRev' Randall, Lorenzo McIntosh and Marvin Gordon worked the full turnout of Fit 4 Lifers, ensuring that everyone got a complete, full body workout.

Fit 4 Lifers enjoyed power shakes from sponsor Chas E Ramson made with Foska Oats and Blue Diamond Almond Milk, as well as delicious treats from partner GraceKennedy's Caribbean Choice; a variety of natural teas from Shavuot International; refreshing beverage from Grace Aloe; and Catherine's Peak water.


Medical checks


Sponsor Medical Associates gave free medical checks to ensure everyone was fit and ready.

Three teams took part in the Obstacle Race Challenge - Monster Crew, Phoenix and Dun Dem.

Dun Dem came out on top, followed by Monster Crew, while Phoenix finished third.

No one went home empty-handed, as each team member got prizes such as teas from Shavuot International; gift baskets from sponsor Chas E Ramson; and gift baskets from GraceKennedy; one month membership with Sweet Energy Fitness Club; and one-month membership with Life Fit Training Centre; Fit 4 Life gift bags, t-shirts and water bottles.

Time is running out. It's week eight this Saturday, August 11, as The Gleaner's Fit 4 Life team joins fitness guru Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn at the Life Fit Training Centre, 15 3/4 Red Hills Road, St Andrew (upstairs Dunn's Electrical), at 6:30 a.m.

Everyone is invited to come out to each of the Saturday morning boot camps, free of cost, as the Fit 4 Life team journeys with Jamaica to a healthy, fitter life.
