New gym for FBC staff

THERE is a new gym in town.

However, it's only for the staff of the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC).

FBC chief executive Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the gym was their way of joining the fight against Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs).

"This is something we have been working on for about six months," he said.

"Apart from the gym, we have a recreational area and kids' corner for staff that have kids.

"Sometime, children come and wait for their parents to finish work and now they have a proper space to play, watch TV and read books."

The gym was opened by Minister for Health Dr Neil Sharma last week and he hopes other organisations would take up the same initiative and join the fight against NCDs.

"The concept of health is very important and this is a good move by FBC," he said.

"NCDs is a huge problem not only in Fiji but other places and it is very important that we watch our lifestyle."

Sayed-Khaiyum added they would also start yoga classes from August.
