Rex Edwards, Head Trainer at Fit for Life Health Club, has warned that the three-week 2014 Fitness Revolution programme will be “rampant” and will stimulate the bodies of all the participants who will be engaging in the programme.

Scheduled to run from July 14 until July 31, the programme will involve hundreds of adults engaging in a 90-minute intense cardio exercise programme on the grounds of the Morne Rouge playing field by various trainers attached to the gym.

Though it’s an initiative of the gym, it is sponsored by a number of corporate bodies who distribute or promote products aimed at encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Edwards noted that during the period, two new initiatives will also be launched, aimed at rewarding persons who are losing weight and attending regularly.

He said that persons who lose weight will be receiving food vouchers while other partners in the initiative will be providing different incentives, which include cash prizes, free phone credit and samples of various products.

Described as the official warm-up for Carnival, because of the heavy involvement of local music, the participants usually involve a significant number of Carnival Mas band members who are using the occasion as a last-minute opportunity to get their bodies in shape for the road.

The initiative commenced in 2012 and during the first year, Fitness Revolution was held for only two weeks and because of the demands from participants, it was held for three weeks in the second year. Officials at the gym said that they are confident that the three weeks are sufficient for the participants to understand and start experiencing the rewards of engaging in a healthy lifestyle practice.
