The Rotary Club of Ipoh organised a healthy lifestyle seminar named, ‘Fitness for Purpose’ for secondary school students recently. It was held at ACS Ipoh. Students from six secondary schools in Ipoh participated.
The objective was to empower the children through a sound knowledge of nutrition and exercise so that they can take control of their bodies and to improve themselves physically, as they see fit.
Students were taught how good nutrition and exercise would benefit them in their studies and other aspects, such as self-esteem, confidence, increasing willpower, determination, tools which will benefit them in their adulthood.
Students were introduced and instructed on the basics of exercise and good nutrition by FISAF certified group fitness instructor, Eu Yeok Fay and senior dietician from Pantai Hospital Ipoh, Rachel Lee Ling Wooi.
According to Gavin Tang, President of Rotary Club Ipoh, the goal of the programme was to educate the children to learn from a very young age how to regulate their lifestyle and the importance of keeping fit and healthy.
At the end of the seminar, students were encouraged to participate in the 12-Week Transformation Challenge where they would apply the knowledge that they had acquired to successfully transform their bodies and their lives for good.
