Fitness enthusiasts turned out in droves for the UPP Fitness Jam on Thursday. The fun event brought the community together to focus on the importance of health and wellness. Participants from infants to octogenarians ventured on the five kilometre trek from Pensioners’ Beach to the Multipurpose Centre in Perry Bay, and back.

Most participants donned white Fitness Jam T-shirts as they stretched, strolled, jogged and jammed to the sounds of an impressive entertainment line-up that included King Menace, DJs Ruthless, Miguel and Snypa, all powered by Young Jugglaz Sounds. 

UPP Political Leader, Harold Lovell, said the event was a huge success.

“The UPP will ignite a fitness revolution to make health and wellness a national priority. The party will present a number of programmes that focus on personal health and wellbeing in its manifesto,” he said.

“A healthy nation leads to a stronger economy as healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have. Keeping people well and out of hospital will deliver benefits to not only individuals, but to our entire health system.” 

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

The Fitness Jam ended with a cool down and meditative bonfire session, followed by an after party at Barefoot Bar.
