CLAUDIA Herance of Jacmel had a vision to do something different for her community.
While away in the United Kingdom late last year she was inspired to start a Fitness Programme on her return to Saint Lucia. Together with her daughter Diane Herance, they invited a small of group of ladies to join them at the Community Centre in Jacmel to launch the activity.
The ladies meet for two one-hour sessions Monday to Thursday and these session include a dance component as part of the overall keep-fit routine.
Driven by their slogan “Sweat it out fitness” the numbers are increasing and the ladies seemed to be enjoying themselves buoyed by the news that Florentina Edmond had won the weight loss championship recording 14 pounds for the period February to March 2015.
A fund-raising event was held on Easter Monday at the Jacmel Community Centre where residents were offered a free training session. This activity was well supported and a number on enthusiastic ladies added their names to the register of the fitness group
