Fitness instructor thrills crowd

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, August 30, 2014

THOUSANDS of people were full of admiration for the country's youngest body builder when he took to the stage at the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North on Thursday Night.

Vodafone Fiji Foundation volunteer and mFitness co-ordinator Jekesoni Yanuyanudrua kept the crowd on their feet as they cheered him on for about 10 minutes while he put on a body building display.

Foundation executive Ambalika Kutty said the mFitness program aimed to improve the state and condition of being physically and mentally sound, especially as a result of exercise and proper nutrition suitable to the adaptation of Fiji's environment.

"The mFitness program aims to change eating behaviours that complements the training output and brings about holistic change in life, for example eating right that auger well with training," she said.

"It also aims to reflect wellness and how one feels about life as well as one's ability to function more effectively.

"Holistic fitness is about movement, being active, steering people away from fear that they cannot start the basic steps towards fitness.

"The program aspires to include weight training as in cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation or metabolic disease management programs."

The mFitness program can be accessed through dialling *797#.
