Bmobile: Major improvements in health, following 1st Summer Weight Loss Camp

There was a 95% overall improvement in blood pressure and glucose levels for children involved in the recently concluded Summer Weight Loss Camp in Trinidad.

The camp, which was funded by Bmobile, targeted children between the ages of 8 and 18 who were overweight and obese.

Throughout the camp’s duration, the children endured multiple physical, but fun exercises which ranged from zumba, aqua aerobics, kickboxing, a Boot Camp and other fitness games.

They were also actively involved in Self Esteem Coaching, Nutrition, Health Education as well as motivational talks led by various local heroes.

One of the major highlights arising out of the Summer Weight Loss Camp was the testimonial of 12-year old camper, Omari Bascombe who dropped a whopping 20 pounds during his six weeks of hard work and mental prowess.

Prior to the start of the camp, each child was weighed and had their blood pressure and blood glucose levels tested.

On the final day, they were once again tested and the results proved a resounding sounding success overall.
