Nehemiah Morille is a police officer by profession and encourages fitness and healthy lifestyles in many ways. Morille recently embarked on a journey to create a fitness programme, designed for anyone who wishes to participate.
The programme has since attracted a number of people from all walks of life. Boot Camp started on November 7, 2013 with a handful of participants and has grown throughout the months, with now over fifty consistent participants.
Morille is persistent and encourages Boot Campers to adopt the same characteristic and be disciplined both in exercise and diet.
Morille has many success stories. However, boot camper Lulu’s story stands out, as she has lost over 40 pounds. “When Lulu started she was a size 28, now she’s down to a size 19. She could not run now she can run for miles.” Morille said.
Boot Camp will be celebrating its first anniversary today, November 6, 2014 at the Gros-Islet Multipurpose Court -from 5:00 p.m. which promises to be exciting.
Blue Waters has sponsored the event and Boot Campers will be dressed in their group T-shirts and nurses will be at the event facilitating body mass index and blood pressure screening.
A surprise trainer will be on site to conduct one of the segments for today’s Boot Camp. Campers will also be treated to a healthy feast after workout.
Boot Camp takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. on the Gros-Islet Multipurpose Court.
Exercises include: intense workout, jogging the route to Pigeon Island/ Cap Estate, and aqua aerobics at the Aquatic Centre.
