EATING a well-balanced diet and living an active lifestyle is just the motivation you need to live your best life!

Two Saturdays ago, Courts Jamaica inspired eager customers to live the life they truly deserve through wellness, with the continuation of its workshop series “Let's Get It Done - Healthy Living” at Courts, Bogue.

The company partnered with the all-wellness powerhouse, Jamaica Moves, to host the “Healthy Living” workshops, where patrons were encouraged to rest well, exercise regularly, reduce sugar, alcohol and transfat consumption to aid in the prevention of non-communicable diseases.

A release said Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Meisha-Gay Mattis Wilson showcased quick, healthy juices for any member in the family, using the affordable small appliances from Courts. Jamaica Tropical Foods Ltd had the audience sated with fresh produce while Lifespan Spring Water kept everyone refreshed.

“Healthy Living” left the attentive patrons with more than just useful tips on living healthier. Special prizes were awarded to individuals who participated in the Family Juice-Off, Trivia and fitness challenges.

In January, Donna Neidham from Courts, Ocho Rios walked away with an Oribitrek Elliptical after placing first in the monthly prize draw. February first-place winner Mieka Gordon received a Weslo Folding Treadmill and Dwayne McCalla. Shadae Forbes and Devorah Dunkley caught up on some well-needed rest and woke up to celebrate their winnings courtesy of AllNite from a Sleep-A-Thon held on Saturday. Shadae, who placed first, received an AllNite Premiere Plus Queen divan set and Devorah, received an AllNite Premier Queen Divan Set.

“Healthy Living” will continue at select Courts locations each Saturday until March 17 and will offer comprehensive information on how to kick-start weight loss, read nutritional labels, boost your immune system, energy levels, and reduce stress.

According to Senior Brand Manager Katasha Thompson, “We offer our customers a great selection of fitness and wellness products that help in maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle for the entire family. 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”.

Customers will benefit from free eye screening, blood pressure, and blood glucose checks courtesy of Courts Optical, the release said.

Courts said it has also sweetened the deal by offering special discounts. On workshop days, attendees can enter for a chance to be a winner of a Go-Fit Package or small home appliance at any of the three workshops. Additionally, customers who participate can win the monthly prize of an Orbitrek Elliptical and gift basket courtesy of JP Tropical Foods Ltd. That's not all, one lucky customer will walk away with the grand prize of a Norditrack Treadmill, plus a free two-month health coaching session from Bodhi.
