Our Director, David Walwyn, Interviewed About Our Upcoming National Weight Loss Campaign

Article by Nevis Pages:


David Walwyn of the Fit Wellness Center on Nevis, in a recent interview, explained that the National Weight loss campaign will be officially launched at the Fit Park, on the 26th of January.


This follows an official media launch late last year, which basically introduced the proposed program to the general public.


The major health related project is a collaborative effort between the Fit Wellness Center and the Ministry of Health, under the leadership of the Hon. Hazel Brandy Williams, the Minister responsible for that significant Ministry.


Walwyn explained that the main goal of the upcoming campaign is to ensure drastic weight loss in as many affected individuals across the island, as it is a well-known fact that an alarming number of persons on the island are obese and grossly overweight.


Hence the resulting huge numbers of hospital admissions and resulting deaths from the various non communicable diseases and related complications such as hypertension, diabetes; kidney failure etc.


The Hon. Hazel Brandy Williams has purposed in her heart to break this vicious cycle and has teamed up her Ministry with the FIT Wellness Center, to seek to break this scourge and the two main areas of concern in the program, will be PROPER NUTRITION, which will seek to break the habit of the American styled diet, as persons locally are eating too much processed foods and EXERCISE, which will seek to break the trend of inactivity, among many of the residents on the island.


In so doing, a collective figure of the number of pounds to be lost during the campaign, will be set as an initial target.


Hon. Hazel Brandy Williams will be leading by example and has already REGISTERED FOR THE PROGRAM and her progress will be closely monitored on social media, to the point where her private life will not be so private anymore, as her exercise program and eating habits will be closely monitored and her weight loss progress will be closely monitored and publicized.
Minister Brandy Williams is hoping that many persons on the island will follow suit, as the national campaign is absolute FREE OF COST and involves quite a number of medical professionals who will be there to assist and assess persons on the program, giving free advice and counselling as regards exercise and diet and even psychological counselling where necessary.


Interested persons can register on line here


The program will involve lecture session; exercise programs and a host of fun activities and persons will be continually monitored and assessed as regards their general progress and an official assessment will be conducted at the end of the first six months.


Interested persons are urged to use the opportunity to register quickly as this may be the difference between a life of pain and misery and a healthy lifestyle.

We Had A Great Time At Our End of Year Member Appreciation Party

On Friday 28th December, we hosted our annual end of year member appreciation party and had a blast. Our members were treated to delicious food, great drinks, fantastic music and some good clean fun and camaraderie.


We also used this opportunity to recognise members who have made great progress in 2018 with awards given to our MVP members Troy Hanley, Juliet O’loughlin, Tesson Clarke, Shannecia Demming  and Kurvin Wallace.


Additionally, special awards were given to Juliet O’loughlin for the most check-ins, an amazing 682 times for 2018 (WOW!) and Petronella Hanley for being our LONGEST member (12 years!).  Petronella was the first member to register back in July 2006 when the gym opened. We are very grateful for her loyalty and would like to say congratulations to Petronella and all the night’s awardees.


During the night we  launched our new website (the one you’re on right now!). Please do take some time to look around the site and give us any feedback that you may have.


All that’s left to say is a big thank you to all our members for a fantastic year and to everyone who was able to attend our party. It was great to see you and we look forward to continuing to support you with your health and fitness journey in 2019. Happy New Year!!
