Healthy Tips for the month  

Do not forget to “break” fast. The metabolism will “turn on” with a morning meal Whole grains like barley, quinoa, millet, and oatmeal are very nutritional and cost-effective. They fill you up because of their wholeness and have high fiber content. You should not limit your choices to rice and pasta should when it comes to making a list for cost-effective grocery shopping. Drastically reduce the consumption of packaged juice, soda, and alcohol. These beverages are filled with empty calories. Instead, consider fresh juices and green tea. Green tea is filled with anti-oxidants and has negligible sugar content. Avoid pre-packaged foods as much as possible. Most of the pre-packaged foods are loaded with preservatives and they lack the high-quality nutrition our body needs. Instead of pre-packaged foods, consider slow-cooker recipes. Sit upright on the sofa or chair. If you read or watch TV in the sitting position rather than lying down, you will burn 5% more calories.

The Transformation Success Story - Andy speaks... Andy Grant, Activities Coordinator at LaSource shares his own success story. He remembers to add his on style of touch to the classes, he provides, the most popular ones being Aquacise and Stretch Class. I am a Grenadian, born on the 9th of July, 1978. As a young man, I started running and fitness training with some friends in my neighbourhood, in St Andrews. I would take part in any sport I could; basketball, football, cricket but I wanted to go further. So I began training with the Grenada Amateur Boxing Association in St George‟s and soon became Grenada‟s heavyweight boxer, representing Grenada at regional and international games from 1998 to 2003. I saw the opportunity for me to excel and come back to help young people here. But I realized that my achievements were not recognized and there was no support for me to help others in Grenada. In 2004, I created a boxing fitness project „Let’s Dance Revolution’ as a volunteer, with a youth skills centre working with 25 disadvantaged youths. I tried to get funding to develop this as it was a great success but I was not successful in getting support for it in Grenada. I then visited the US and took up the opportunity of fashion modelling. Palmero Models trained me and I built up a portfolio and returned to the Caribbean to further this new career. In Trinidad in a few months, I had participated in top fashion shows and became the new „Top Role Model’ . But, I did not like the

jealousy and favouritism in this industry for my future. I had found a job at a Fitness Centre gym and also trained with the Trinidad Boxing Association to gain a coaching certificate. At the gym I offered boxercise classes and Grenadian Caribbean Dance classes. I was also glad to receive fitness training in stretches, core, abs and Bosu techniques, and worked as a personal trainer. I kept trying to get funding for my project „Let’s Dance Revolution’ and UNICEF funded it for one year in Tobago. In 2007 in Tobago, I worked with students who were „trouble makers‟ and out-of school youth on the block, using dance, boxing and fitness techniques with music to create performances. The Red Cross Society certified me as a Community Team Leader and I trained and received a Sports Administration certificate from a UNICEF/TTSAPE Australian Sports Outreach Program (ASOP). My project, Let’s Dance Revolution, worked well for anger management, self discipline and motivation. We created videos, I became a mentor, building up self-esteem and the

group went on to continuing performances and getting further funding. I returned to Grenada and continued personal fitness training with a local gym. I kept looking for ways to build my fitness career and came across this great opportunity at LaSource, to work as an Activity Coordinator. I was introduced to aquacise, pool and beach volleyball, fencing, archery and other land sports. Master Trainers, brought to LaSource, have helped me to build my skills and improve what I do. I was also introduced to guest relations - hosting and orientation, and I have come to love this part of my job too because I meet people from everywhere and we exchange knowledge. In this job I am able to help people to have fun and feel better about themselves through fitness and sport, as well as help guests to enjoy my country. I love being a part of the social, health and well-being atmosphere at the best all -inclusive resort in Grenada.
