In a quest to increase Jamaica’s capacity to stem the threat of CNCDs (chronic non-communicable diseases) and their debilitating effects on the Jamaican economy, two of Jamaica’s top fitness entities have joined forces to formally create a curriculum with a primary focus to train & develop new & current fitness professionals in Jamaica.
“To truly improve our capacity of combatting the threat of reduced productivity at family, community, organization & national scales, due to diseases that are lifestyle related (Obesity, Hypertension, Diabetes, etc.) we have to increase the numbers of our population engaged in exercise at the community level, across Jamaica; Increasing the number of fitness professionals, accessible in communities across the island is one such method.”
(Oshane Bryant-O’Shane Bryant Fitness).
Combined, both entities boast over 35 years of workable experience in Fitness & Martial Arts; and are the producers of some of the top fitness professionals that work in the fitness industry locally (Jamaica), regionally (Caribbean), and across sections of the world.
“To truly combat the threat of CNCDs on our economy (Jamaican), and our public health, we need to have serious professionals who are serious about their work, knowledgeable, and likeable.”
(Master Bryan Campbell-KUKIBO Martial Arts & Fitness Association).
