The month of August is drawing to an end, marking the beginning of the second month (September) in the three month long Summer Bodies are made in Winter Campaign.
Last weekend the Summer Bodies team was invited to participate at the official launch of the National Fitness Day held by the Ministry of Youth Sports and Culture (MYSC) at Molepolole Stadium. Yours truly had the pleasure of joining the team and is glad to report, the event was officially launched.
The day started off in the wee hours of Saturday morning with a thirty minute commute to the tribal land of Bakwena and upon arrival, the real work began. The team and some of the attendants from various fitness teams in and around Molepolole were taken through their paces by fitness instructor James with Aerobics and some Cardio Training. Other instructors brought out the kick boxers in us with Cardio Step and Tone as well as the Zumba.
I must say, before last week, I had never done the Zumba, and neither had I seen it being done. For those wondering what Zumba is, well- it is basically an exercise where one busts out crazy dance moves. Yeah, it is full on, out of control dancing! The reason I am making so much reference to the dancing aspect of this latest fitness craze is because, well, I could never dance to save my life, not for lack of trying but because of my two left feet and lack of coordination (for some reason, I can never move both my feet and arms in a coordinated manner).
There I was, struggling during the routine and thinking to myself, “What have I gotten myself into? I am having a problem with aerobics as it is, by the time this is done, everyone will know how hopeless I am at dancing, I will never be invited to a party again, ever!” and as these thoughts were swirling through my head it also dawned on me that if I am to reserve residence on the fitness wagon, I have to stop being comfortable with the idea that I cannot do certain things. And as stated in last week’s entry, my body can take it.
This weekend we do not have outside activities and have used the entire week to prepare for the ultimate fitness challenge in our schedule of main events tours and visits- The 15 km Endurance Fun Walk from Molapo Crossing to Mokolodi Village. Until otherwise stated, my 25 push ups, crunches and press ups as well a 2km jog around the indoor track at the gym continues.
All this before a rigorous exercise formulated by James in the evenings comprising of either, cardio circuit training, aqua aerobics, body conditioning or cardio step and tone depending on the day. My daily Beauty and Slimming Spa treatments are also ongoing until the end of the program. Remember, forget your comfort zone and get out there and do it!
In May 2014, controversial pint sized musician, Odirile Sento married his longtime girlfriend, Kagiso Sento in a glamorous wedding, not knowing that eight years later, the two will be fighting until the very end of their holy union.
Mental health is one critical element in someone’s life but gloomily, it is often overlooked. Topics centered on mental health and depression dominate the public discourse. The national conversation surrounding mental wellness, both online and offline has aided in the stigma of suffering from depression being removed, slowly but surely.
