Technician Body Transformation and Monarch Lifeguard and Emergency will host a free boot camp fitness and wellness event titled ‘Fitnation’ on 28 January, at Dunes Mall in Walvis Bay.

The first-of-its-kind boot camp by the two Walvis Bay - based organisations, will commence between 6:00 and 7:30. According to Martin Muyenga, owner of Monarch Lifeguard, the event is being hosted with the aim of introducing fitness to the nation. “The goal of a fitness boot camp is to provide a whole body workout that builds strength and aerobic endurance. Boot camp workouts attract a lot of people as it offers a challenging, varied and fun workout.”

He explained that being physically fit can improve your brain health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease, and strengthen bones and muscles. "Attendees will be exposed to Tabata workouts, power cardio, and general fitness to name a few.”

Healthier nation

He added that the idea will be extended to different towns across the country in order to help the nation recover and boost fitness levels following the Covid-19 pandemic. Boot camps, according to Muyenga, are important as they help encourage people to work on their fitness, which is good for their health. “Boot camp is a group exercise that motivates and helps build teams in the community,” he said, adding that a healthy nation is a strong nation.

Muyenga also extended a word of encouragement to those interested in joining the boot camp. “People must come in numbers, especially those who are looking to work on their fitness and wellness. This is the key that will unlock the door to a personal healthy lifestyle, excellent body workout and body shape.”[email protected]
