Premier global nutrition company, Herbalife Nutrition, has launched the inaugural Get Moving With Good Nutrition Challenge in the country. Aimed at breaking the health inertia, inspiring healthy active living, and fostering communities that support one another on their healthy living journey, the Challenge centers upon the Herbalife Nutrition 40th Anniversary Virtual Run as its highlight activity.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), physical inactivity can have serious implications on a person’s health. Sedentary lifestyles not only double the risks of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and obesity, they also increase the risks of colon cancer, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, lipid disorders, depression and anxiety, making it one of the most serious yet understated health risks today.
“After months of sedentary living under quarantine for months, it is high time for us to start moving once again to get our health back on the right track. With the view that some of us may need an extra push to take the first step towards restarting healthy active living, our inaugural Get Moving With Good Nutrition Challenge aims to do just that. From the Virtual Run, to the e-Wellness Tour, to the expert-led online fit sessions, nutrition talks and more, these activities are designed to help us restart positive nutrition and active living habits, and provide encouragement to one another for their healthy living journey,” said Sridhar Rajagopalan, Senior Director/ Sub-Regional General Manager of Herbalife Nutrition Philippines.
Herbalife Nutrition 40th Anniversary Virtual Run
As the highlight activity of the Get Moving With Good Nutrition Challenge, the Herbalife Nutrition 40th Anniversary Virtual Run celebrates the company’s 40-year track record of bringing good nutrition to people and communities around the world. The inaugural run, to be held from November 1 to 30, rallies Herbalife Nutrition’s member community and the general public to get moving once again, while inspiring their families, friends and the people around them to do the same.
Participants can sign up for the run as an individual or as a team – with 4km, 24km and 40km distances for the individual race category, 24km and 40km distances for the team race category – and volunteer to pledge an additional amount to Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, which will be channeled to the Casa Herbalife Nutrition program beneficiaries.
Registration for the Virtual Run will run until November 13. Participants who complete the run will receive a limited edition Herbalife Nutrition 40th Anniversary Virtual Run medal and an e-certificate each. For more information, visit https://www.herbalife40virtualrun.com/.
“We have a race category for individuals and team. For the individual category, we have the 4km, 24km, and 40km—which they can accomplish collectively in a month. For the team category, we have the 40km, 60km, 80km, and 100km—which they can also collectively accomplish in a month. They can do it indoors and outdoors, anywhere they are comfortable in,” said Rajagopalan.
To help participants prepare for the run, Herbalife Nutrition has lined up a series of virtual run training content, including run training sessions led by Samantha Clayton, vice president of Sports Performance and Fitness Education at Herbalife Nutrition, online “fit sessions” led by Herbalife Nutrition’s partner athletes, and sports nutrition talks by Dr. Dana Ryan, Herbalife Nutrition’s Director of Sport Performance and Education.
