Courts Jamaica has joined forces with nutrition health coach and Bodhi founder Meisha-Gay Mattis to offer what it describes as a more meaningful and fun guide to living a holistic lifestyle.

The workshop series, “Let’s Get It Done - Healthy Living”, kicked off at Courts Portmore last Saturday and will be held at different Courts locations every Saturday until March 17.

The workshops will be guided by Mattis and the national wellness programme, Jamaica Moves. It will offer comprehensive information on how to kick start weight loss, read nutritional labels, boosting your immune system and energy levels, and reduce stress, all of which reduces the probability of developing certain non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and even some cancers.

According to Katasha Thompson, Courts senior brand manager, “We offer our customers a great selection of fitness and wellness products that helps in maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle both in the kitchen and at home.

“Through ‘Healthy Living’ we are taking it a step further; by truly bringing value to our customers and their families not just with great offers, but where it matters most…their health.

She continued, “We’ve created a fun, family-friendly and holistic approach to workout sessions, juicing and blending! Together with the expertise of Meisha and Jamaica Moves we are giving customers more than just a great sale…We want to motivate persons to maintain a healthy lifestyle in 2018 and beyond”.

Mattis, meanwhile, noted that: “When you look at the number as it relates to non-communicable diseases and where we are today, I still feel like there is a lot more work to be done. This is why I was in total agreement this year when we decided to get the entire family involved because for the first time in living history today’s children are not expected to outlive their parents.

“I must applaud Courts for this initiative to bring to the forefront the importance in the prevention of lifestyle related diseases which are crippling our society,” said Mattis.

Courts has also sweetened the deal by offering special discounts. Free eye screening, blood pressure, and blood glucose tests for attendees will be done courtesy of Courts Optical. Attendees can enter for a chance to be a winner of a Go-Fit Package at the ten workshops or be the Workshop Champion and win a Orbitrek Elliptical and Nutribullet leading up to The Grand Prize of a Norditrack Treadmill PLUS a free two-month Health Coaching session from Bodhi.
