23

The UPP is on a mission to improve the personal health habits of Antiguans and Barbudans’ through education, prevention and early intervention programs for all ages.

The Fitness Jam is a fun, cultural experience that will bring the community together to focus on personal health and wellness.

This is a part of the UPP’s health intelligence strategy, designed to bring greater awareness about how to manage the rise in certain chronic diseases, as well as the needs of an aging population.

This initiative will provide an opportunity to increase knowledge, planning and evaluation of one’s personal health.

The Fitness Jam will be held on Thursday December 8th at 4pm. Participants can stretch, stroll, jog or jam to the sounds of an impressive entertainment line-up that includes: King Menace, DJs Ruthless, Miguel and Snypa, all powered by Young Jugglaz Sounds. Several UPP Candidates will also be featured as fitness instructors and motivators. This team includes:

– Harold Lovell – St. John’s City East

– Hon. Jamale Pringle – All Saints East and St. Luke

– Gladys Potter – St. John’s Rural South

– Kelvin Simon – St. Mary’s South

– Tevaughn Harriette – St. Peter

– Anthony Smith Jr. – All Saints West

“The UPP is proposing a number of programs that will focus on personal health and wellbeing.  We believe that good health boosts productivity and that a healthy nation leads to a stronger economy. Keeping people well and out of hospital will deliver benefits to not only individuals, but to our entire health system,” said UPP Political Leader, Harold Lovell.

Lovell believes that wellness is a personal and professional responsibility and he encourages his team to incorporate more wellness activities into their daily routines, as the Party enters the homestretch of the election campaign.

“It is so important to keep the body, mind and soul healthy, because this leads to a winning attitude and mindset.  The Fitness Jam will highlight how a connected community can be motivated to make better health-related decisions and take actions towards an improved lifestyle,” said Kelvin Simon, former national athlete and UPP Candidate for St. Mary’s South.

      Dear Shugy

      My Family and I attended the town meeting in Urlings . We were happy to see you in the meeting. I saw you sat in the meeting and were very nervous and afraid to ask even one question. This bothers Us. If in this small forum you cannot handle this situation what will happen when the ABLP roll out the BIG RED machine. This shows that you are NOT ready for prime time. Your heart is not in the race.I will suggest that you smarten up very soon. So far you have let Us down. Hope to see you in person to express the same sentiment.

  1. @ Smh

    What another innovative idea.
    UPP is full of excellent ideas like the Pull Up, MOMs programme etcetera.
    What a way to encourage the nation to keep healthy.

    All the ABLP does is COG, COG, COG
    They CANNOT GOG this one though because the following OLD or FAT representatives CANNOT and WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP UP:
    UPP full a young blood and bones and ready to take over the reigns of government:
    WESTON, CERTAINLY NOOOOOOO
    ROBIN,NO
    MARY CLARE, NO
    LIONEL, NO
    SAMANTHA, ESPECIALLY, NO
    CUTIE, DEFINITELY, NO
    MOLWYN, DEFINITELY NOOOO
    MELFORD, NEVER

  2. Shame & disgrace in the UPP family. Was Shuggy lost for words at the town hall meeting….? Is this the type of representation UPP can produce? UPP need to raise their standard & raise it bodly and answer when duty calls

    • @Bluddy Bloke. APOSTLE SHUGY SIMON can only read from a script prepared by the 💄 🐖 🐷 🐽

      APOSTLE SHUGY SIMON – lastnight was the first time he kept on his shirt in public. He weak wobbly legs🦵 need to squat and tap hand-stand.

  3. Great initiative. A healthy nation is a wealthy nation. Gaston should great big gut Weston, Cutie, Melford, Samantha, Robin and others to do a fitness test.

    • And if they announced before you would still ask why they didn’t announce it before? Don’t they first have to evaluate it to see how it works first? Why don’t you ask when we will get some damn water in our pipes?
      Nothing but haters!!!

    • @Irate
      The UPP has been having an event every weekend for the past 3 months, going through each constituency to help Small Businesses. You have some nerve asking why now? Why NOT now? Why announce something and then they can’t execute? Then you would say that they are bluffers. Just say good initiative and keep it moving.

  4. WOW! The UPP IS A A PARTY THAT BRINGS FRESH INITIATIVES TO THE CAMPAIGN.
    I HAVE NOT HEARD OF ONE ABLP INITIATIVE. ALL I HAVE SEEN IS THE OBSCENE BILLBOARDS
