Nestle Fitnesse to bring 14-day program in Metro Manila

MANILA, Philippines – In today’s fast-paced, highly-stressful work environment, health and fitness are often taken for granted. As employees struggle to beat deadlines, rush to meetings and accomplish all their tasks, priority for a healthy lifestyle often takes a backseat.

However, studies increasingly show that fit employees are less prone to stress and tend to be more productive. Combining proper diet and exercise will not only help employees look their best, but positively influence work productivity and job satisfaction as well.

In preparation for summer, NESTLÉ FITNESSE is set to help Metro Manila employees pursue a healthy lifestyle as it brings the NESTLÉ FITNESSE 14-Day Summer Challenge to 10 chosen offices.   “The NESTLÉ FITNESSE 14-Day Summer Challenge is part of Nestlé’s efforts to promote health and wellness among employees to help them eat right and be healthy,” said Joie Macatula, NESTLÉ FITNESSE Consumer Marketing Manager. “Being fit and healthy is integral to our well-being, and with the NESTLÉ FITNESSE 14-Day Program, we can help employees look and feel better.”

The NESTLÉ FITNESSE 14-Day Summer Challenge is open to all qualified employees of 10 selected offices, ages 18-50 years old, with BMI of 25 and above. They just have to go to the Summer Challenge Booth in their respective offices to sign up for the NESTLE FITNESSE 14-Day Program, which includes consultation with a nutritionist and initial weigh-in.

The NESTLÉ FITNESSE 14-Day Program is specially designed to help consumers manage their weight in just 14 days.  The good thing about the program is that consumers need not undergo a complete and drastic diet change. They just need to pair NESTLÉ FITNESSE with fruit plus their usual coffee or tea during breakfast, eat a healthy balanced meal for lunch, enjoy a piece of fruit or low-fat yogurt for snacks, eat one bowl of NESTLÉ FITNESSE for dinner and they are on their way to having a healthier and fitter self in just a matter of two weeks.

After 2 weeks, the participants must again visit the Summer Challenge Booth for their final weigh-in, to check their progress vs. their fitness goals. All finishers of the NESTLÉ FITNESSE 14-Day Summer Challenge will get a limited edition NESTLÉ FITNESSE running shirt plus a renewed confidence to rock that beach-ready body. Aside from these, the top 5 participants with the highest percentage of pounds lost will receive NESTLÉ FITNESSE gift packs, a lifestyle gift certificate worth P1,000 and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be featured in a magazine and be styled by fashion blogger and NESTLÉ FITNESSE coach Laureen Uy. Furthermore, one lucky finisher will win an ultimate summer getaway for 2 to Boracay.
