NHF’s Work-It-Out Challenge Is Back

The National Health Fund (NHF) is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated comeback of its renowned fitness initiative, the Work-It-Out Challenge, in partnership with Wellness Expert, Kamila McDonald. 

Rather than a weight loss challenge, the 20th anniversary edition covers three components that promote overall wellness: fitness, healthy eating and mental health management, each area being supported by weekly sessions and workshops. 

Shermaine Robotham, director of health promotion, public relations and customer care says the Fund is committed to promoting healthy lifestyle in keeping with the Ministry of Health & Wellness mandate and  aims through this wellness challenge for hundreds of Jamaicans to improve and prioritise their overall health and wellness.

“It is the start of the year when several persons are goal-setting. We want to encourage persons to maximize this opportunity to get on the right track with their health for the rest of the year. We have partnered with the Regional Health Authorities as well as wellness experts and coaches from all over the island in an attempt to maximize reach and have as many persons as possible benefitting from this initiative that has changed the lives of many over the eleven years of its existence.”

“Through this initiative, she added, we’re promoting gradual, manageable and maintainable adjustments to an individual’s daily life. We want participants to see the importance and benefits of holistic health so that even after the challenge has ended the desire to pursue it will remain.”

To qualify, persons:

Ø  Must form groups of five with a designated captain

Ø  Must be 18 years or over; should not be pregnant or breastfeeding

Ø  Must give consent per our privacy notice

Persons are also able to enter individually. 

Prizes, including Fitbits, gym packages, cooking class memberships, and spa certificates, will be awarded to the top entrants based on participation and engagement.

Interested persons may visit the website at www.nhf.org.jm to sign up. Registration closes on January 31, 2024. The challenge officially begins on February 10, 2024.

The NHF remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting health, wellness, and community engagement.
