Keep Fit sports Club Marks end of year


Honours distinguished members


KEEP Fit Sports Club, Saturday, marked her end of the year in grand style.The event, which took place at Cihcotel Hotel, Awka, had the theme, ‘2020 Survivor’.


  The club’s captain and  MD/CEO of Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation, publisher of National Light, Ka O Di Taa and SportslightXTRA newspapers, Sir Chuka Nnabuife, in his opening remarks reminisced on the challenges that the club had faced individually and as a group within the year.


 He highlighted COVID-19 pandemic as one of the cataclysms the club faced but was grateful that it was managed and none of the members were affected. He also pointed out on the importance of exercising and stressed the need to reach out to other sports clubs in upcoming events.


He disclosed that the club will also recognise and create a special event in recognition of the past leaders of the club.


Sir Nnabuife also stressed that the members should still watch their weight this festive season as one could get distracted and be tempted to eat and drink without control.


Fitness coach and guest speaker of the event, Izuchukwu Ojemeni lectured on nutrition and different exercises for different bodies. He explained that individuals get it wrong when it comes to exercising. “Someone who wants to get rid of belly fats should not be exercising like someone who wants to get muscle”.


While he encouraged people to exercise, he also stated that the part most people ignore is dieting. “Most people have complained to me that they exercise a lot but don’t see result  in body shape or body weight, and I convince them to check their diet. The food you eat and the time you eat matters a lot in body transformation”.


Different awards on different categories were giving to different individuals.Princess Uju Nwafo-Orizu bagged the Improved Female Award, Professor Clement Atuanya and Bruno Ibekilo bagged the Improved Male Award, Ubaka Chineze bagged the Jolly Good Fellow of the Year Award, while the principal award for the day, ‘Survivor of the Year Award’ was presented to Paul C Obiako.


The club celebrated the birthdays of the members who were born in November and December, including their matron, Senator Uche Ekwenife who just turned 50 this year.


One of the members, Chief Damian Okeke Ogene, president of the Ohaneze Ndigbo, Anambra State, stated that the award will serve as an encouragement to members of the club and promote a healthy competition that will improve fitness and healthy lifestyle.


 Another member, Chief Mrs Ify Ezeokana charged them to continue their fitness program individually. “We are marking end of the year program as a club not our individual fitness so we should continue our routine in our different homes.”
