06 July 2016, 12:00AM

Nobesity Samoa (N.S.) is forging ahead with their annual program and are already activating the initiative to once again push for a healthy lifestyle for families in Samoa. 

They are now in the process of registration and weighing-in of people for the third round of the successful program, now in its second year. 

The 1Touch Bootcamp and Nobesity Samoa Kids program promise a life-changing experience that will ensure adults and children improve on their eating habits and change to improve family health.

A holistic approach by Nobesity Samoa to offer trainings both physically and mentally, to guide members as they transition to a healthy lifestyle.  At the point of registration, children and adults are weighed-in so they will see where they are with their weight, then are invited to a special Nutritional seminar led by Pastor Lenny Solomona where they will discuss the theory of health information and some important insight on health do’s and don’ts.  “Weight loss is just a number on the scale, transformation is when the body lets go of the bad stuff and keeps the good stuff,” says Pastor Lenny during the session.

At the completion of the second round, Nobesity Samoa has attracted some prominent figures in Samoa and abroad. 

U.S. Ambassador, Mark Gilbert, Dr. Salote Vaai and Samoa Sevens legend Uale Mai to name a few, were all guest speakers during some of the key school visits and cooking sessions by Nobesity Samoa. 

School visits to St Mary’s Primary School and Ah Mu Academy were proven successful as many parents are now pushing their children to join the program for an early development in healthy eating and quality living through a healthy lifestyle.

The program is proudly sponsored by Business Systems Limited (B.S.L.) who have long supported health awareness initiatives and programs in Samoa. For B.S.L., it solidifies their niche marketing that they are serious about healthy living for children and also adults, and part of their marketing campaigns is their commitment to developing sports particularly at grass-root level in Samoa.

Visceta Meredith, who has been one of the backbone of the program development said: 

 “The program has become a beacon of hope for Samoa as obesity is a major problem in the Pacific that has led to increased levels of illness, including diabetes and heart diseases. The Kids Program is designed to become a prevention program at early age development while the Bootcamp is for adults to find solutions to their health problems.”

The 1Touch bootcamp challenge and Nobesity Samoa Kids Program will go on for 10 weeks, starting on Monday, 11th July. Final day of registration is today at T.A.T.T.E. building at 5pm, people can also register at the B.S.L. store at Taufusi and also J.M. Gardens Lotopa.
