Fernandinas Address Weight Issues Through Zumba [ Thursday, 26th of July 2018 | 3 months ago ]

The City Government of San Fernando, through its Nutrition Council, aims to help Fernandinas solve their underweight and obesity problems through the annual Inter-Barangay Zumbaers Biggest Loser competition.

Now on its 3rd season, 12 groups from different barangays in the City have participated in Zumba showdown anchored with the theme "Ugaliing Magtanim, Sapat na Nutrisyon Aanihin." This was held on July 25 at Robinsons Starmills in line with the celebration of Nutrition Month 2018. Aside from the performance rate, the weight change in the participants also served as a criterion for judging. "One week bago ang contest tinimbang na namin sila, yung iba dapat mag-lose ng weight tapos yung iba naman dapat mag-gain. Ang points kada grupo ay depende sa kung gaano karami yung mga members nila na may positive changes sa kanilang timbang," explained Gender and Development Focal Person and Nutrition Council Member Amalia Catacutan. This year's winners were the groups from Northville as Champion, Brgy. San Pedro Cutud as 2nd Placer and Sta. Teresita as 3rd Placer. Most Energetic awards were given to Nicaela Luste of Brgy. Sto. Niño, Mary Grace Basilio and Sharlene David of Brgy. Del Pilar, Joan Dimatulac of Brgy. Dela Paz Norte and Jackielyn Zapanta of Northville. Meanwhile, selected participants also tested their wits in the 'Pautakan' inter-cluster challenge wherein facts about food and nutrition were asked. In an interview, Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago lauded the participants for their efforts to achieve their desired weight thus become physically healthy. "The City of San Fernando will continue to advocate health and wellness programs for every Fernandino of all ages because we believe that healthy people are the key to a wealthy community," he added.
