If your plan to get fitter and healthier in 2021 didn’t work out, why wait until 2022? 

By Krystal McKenzie 

Here we are in November with the holidays right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but since March 2020, I haven’t exactly kept up the fitness routine. Now, with the calorie intake seemingly ever increasing, and the physical activity not keeping pace, there is much to consider. 

It’s time to get fit – again. As getting healthier is the best way to fight the plethora of issues plaguing our island, this is the best defence, and you can look and feel better simultaneously. It’s a win-win and there are many choices. 

Betty Doyling @B-Active For Life 

Classes with Betty Doyling are right on time to fall into fitness. Designed to increase overall mobility, stability and strength while working at your own pace, you will participate in a variety of strength training, core conditioning and cardiovascular exercises.

Health Infusion Bermuda 

A great step on the way to better health is Intramuscular shots. They are popular with regulars and new patients alike and have many health benefits. 

Did you know that vitamin B12 is required for the development, myelination and function of the central nervous system, healthy red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis? Intramuscular injections are a safe, quick, and efficient option for correcting vitamin B12 levels. 

Did you know that a significant portion of Bermudians have suboptimal levels of vitamin D? 

Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium, one of the main building blocks for strong bones. Your muscles need it to move and your nerves need it to carry messages between your brain and your body. Your immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses. Intramuscular injections of vitamin D are another option for improving vitamin D status. 

Did you know that people who experience longstanding stress are prone to reduced immunity, poor sleep, fatigue, and increased risk of various health conditions? Intramuscular injections of “adrenal support” can assist those in need of a ‘pick me up’.

Fuelled Bermuda 

You’ve heard the saying “Abs are made in the kitchen,” right? Well at Fuelled Bermuda, your options for getting fitter will ensure you’re getting into that kitchen. Services include one-on-one Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching sessions, hiring their private health food chef, booking a healthy cooking masterclass and registering for a virtual or in-person optimal nutrition workshop. 

Taking a ‘food as medicine’ approach, the founders have spent over 40 years thinking about how they can deliver food that will actually benefit those who eat it, that will FUEL their bodies. That’s Food Unleashing Energy for Life! 

They are set on helping you claim your nutritional advantage in life in as delicious and fun a way as possible. 

If you’re looking at starting one-on-one Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching sessions, you can expect Coach Agathe Holowatinc to help you in your personal levelling-up journey. She is passionate about nutrition, holistic approaches to health and communicating big ideas in a simple way. She believes that optimal health is your birth right and is convinced you deserve to claim it. 

In each 60-minute session, Coach Agathe provides customised guidance, undivided attention, accountability, inspirational energy, and outside-the-box approaches to overcoming challenges so that you reach your goals. This is great if you want to learn how to eat healthy, shed excess weight, change old habits, prevent chronic diseases, increase your energy levels, get off the couch and start ‘fuelling’ your body for optimal health. 

If you’ve ever wanted a private chef to whip up all of your healthy and delicious meals so that you don’t have to, that’s a service Fuelled offers too. And it could be the start of your culinary journey to health food heaven. 

But, if you’re more interested in cracking their recipes and creating the meals yourself, Fuelled’s ‘Healthy Doesn’t Have To Be Hard’ Healthy Cooking Masterclasses are definitely for you. These are an unforgettable, immersive experience. 

You get to chop, slice, roll, blend, mix and measure your way to delicious dishes with the guidance of their skilled instructor. You’ll learn valuable culinary skills and new recipes, enjoy a fun and social activity, and get inspired to expand your taste buds and discover that ‘real food’ can be really good and really easy to make. It’s a fun cooking adventure and the best part is that you’ll get to eat everything you make. Afterwards, you will receive a recipe and instructions handout so that you can make the same magic again at home. Healthy homemade pizza anyone? 

Finally, you can register for one of their virtual or in-person Fuelled Optimal Nutrition Workshops, which currently include ‘Ayurveda: Optimal Nutrition & Disease Prevention’, a half day health retreat and workshop, ‘Crush Cravings!’ and ‘I Quit Sugar!’
