Kingdom Fitness launches first Weight loss challenge in Savai’i

The Savai’i-based Kingdom Fitness launched the first weight loss challenge on the island with a 3.5km Fun Run towards Mount Valusia at Salelologa last Saturday. 

Coordinator, Tevita Tariu, said the programme is a wellness campaign to encourage physical activity, personal nutritional knowledge, community involvement, and healthy competition. 

Mr. Tariu was the first runner up in this year’s TV1 Fika Fou programme and believes that people can make better health choices if they can identify specific goals and start putting it into action. 

More than 30 participants of the 10 weeks challenge have been assessed by the National Kidney Foundation Samoa (N.K.F.). as part of its early detection and prevention programmes. 

N.K.F. offered their support with respect to advice and refer people to the appropriate services to manage their risk profiles. 

Kingdom Fitness will continue to brace their partnership with the Ministry of Health and other fitness service operators as they strive to strengthen and encourage people to make positive choices. 

Kingdom Fitness is operated at the Assemblies of God Fa’aevagelia Hall in Salelologa and is providing free of charge training from Monday to Friday. 

This include morning exercises at 5:30am and boot camps on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm. 

People seem to be motivated through group activities rather than taking an individual effort, according to Tevita, and Kingdom Fitness is dedicated to do just that. 

The current challenge ends on the 1st of December with a Prize Giving followed by the 2nd challenge that is due to start on the 17th of December for 12 weeks. The registration fee is $50 per person

Mr. Tariu expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the generous support of their sponsors and donors including the Samoa Commercial Bank, Federal Pacific Finance, Bluesky Samoa, Xin Fang Mart and the National Kidney Foundation.
