Black Excellence at RIO 2016

I’ve been watching the Olympics my whole life probably since Seoul1988 (I was 3) but  Sydney 2000 has stuck with me with Cathy Freeman making history by being the first Aborigine to win gold in 400 metres in her home country.  This being Women’s month I would love to celebrate the Women breaking down the sporting barriers. 

I’ve watched #RIO2016 with same excitement as always and seen once again significant history been made. I yelled at the screen, celebrated when my own country Zimbabwe ‘s Mighty Warriors scored their first ever goal at the Olympics against Germany. This was the first time any Zimbabwean soccer team had made to the Olympics (men or women).

well i am’srevolutionary approach to online wellness means formal before-and-after assessments (in comparison to the usual do-it-yourself style), and it does not conflict with any existing fitness challenges – online or other. This is great to hear as I am currently doing the #Sleekgeek100. well i am supports whatever fitness journey you are on with a unique and motivational online support system to get you closer to your goals.

They believe in incentives, and when you register you have options which include a Bosch Appliance, Biogen products to the value of R 250, 50% off all Reebok apparel online, and your custom-made, bespoke Health Box packed with extras and valued at over R 300. Certified dietitians and fitness experts have also supplied you with comprehensive eating plans and training programmes, absolutely free. Like  challenges, you’ll have a detailed Dis-Chem Health screening at the start and end of your journey.

This brand new online platform is loaded with video demonstrations, motivational snippets and daily tips from our experts, and allows you to upload and share your own pictures and experiences. SA wellness experts and personalities will also be holding live online forums for contestants to participate in. The well i am approach to wellness is community-heavy, and sharing experiences, challenges, successes and support is an important part of the 100 healthy days.

Corporates can also register their staff for the well i am challenge as it stands, or motivate them with additional in-house incentives. There is a whopping R 120 000 worth of prizes up for grabs, with individual cash prizes of up to R 20 000. Bosch, Reebok and Serta will all be contributing to the impressive grand prizes. I love incentives even though just doing the challenge will benefit me greatly.
