Obesity levels all over the world are increasing at an
alarming rate, and South Africa only this year was stated as the country with
the fastest growing percentage of this silent killer. In fact, according to
some grim statistics, our Rainbow Nation is slowly eating itself to death.
According to the drug and healthcare company,
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), 61% of South Africans are overweight, obese or morbidly
obese. In light of these facts, Lifestyle and Wellness expert, Lisa Raleigh is
asking the country to take on the challenge of a lifetime with the well i am Challenge 2013.
The well I am challenge not only incentivises South Africans
to achieve their desired weight goals but it is designed to assist them in
viewing the challenge as a permanent lifestyle change. Running from the 15th of
February through to the 31st of March, the well
i am challenge supports all fitness journeys with a unique, reward-driven
support system to get contestants closer to their targets.
An online library of resources will be made available to
assist contestants to reach their goals. These include certified eating plans
and training programmes from experts, video demonstrations, motivational
snippets and daily tips.
Entry into the challenge secures participants a well i am
goodie box containing a voucher for a free blender or Juicer, a detailed health
screening at the start and finish of the challenge, a R500 voucher to redeem
for a pair of trainers from a reputable sports brand, a custom-made Health Box
valued at over R400 (visit www.healthboxSA.mobi for details) which contains a well i am starter kit – a unique pack of
extras from well i am and their
sponsors. In short, contestants are awarded over R3000’s worth of products for
committing to the well i am challenge.
The well I am challenge is not only open to individuals,
businesses are also encouraged to sign up employees for a corporate well i am challenge too, either as it
stands or motivating them with additional in-house incentives. Through being
more active, staff become more productive, healthier and the competitive nature
of the challenge will boost office morale.

support, incentives, rewards, tips and tools to not only get contestants closer
to winning but revolutionising their lifestyles too.
