Award-winning Vita Coco counts Madonna, Demi Moore and Matthew McConaughey amongst its investors, as well as, Rihanna, Alex Rodriguez and Kelly Slater amongst the new faces for the brand’s advertising.

Background for Initiative:
Millions of Americans with different disease states could benefit from the clinical skills of their community pharmacists, as well as, access to their local pharmacies for support in managing; Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Obesity, High Cholesterol and Cancer. However, Pharmacist/Business Manager “Dr.Frances Glenn” feels that prevention is much better than having to cure a disease state and that healthy eating, fitness, and positive mental status can result in having ultimate well being.
This year’s event will be focused on specifically encouraging the Georgia Community where our youth and adults are rapidly declining in their health. Also, what we have discovered over the years is that in order to obtain ultimate health you must self-educate or obtain that information through education. Thus, eating the right foods, exercising, and maintaining a positive thought status contributes to an individual’s ultimate health and well being.
Moreover, our goal for the “NuFitU” event is to bring Atlanta’s top Celebrities, Fitness/Dance Instructors, Healthy Food Experts, and Healthy Venues to one place, in order to bring to our communities a “Healthy Experience”.
“This is certain to be the most personally rewarding event for anyone aspiring to live a healthy life.” said BET’s 106 & Park/Lens on Talent’s R&B artist “JeBron”. JeBron feels that, as a musician, it is very important to take care of yourself. Life on the road and the party scene for an artist doesn’t always offer the best foods in a hurry. He recently created a webisode series called “Music & Meals”. The goal of the show is to teach fans how to cook a healthy meal and enjoy the perfect music blend. Episodes can be seen at “www.jebronmusic.com”.
This day will include teaching on how to cook and obtain healthy foods in our area including, organic, raw, vegan, vegetarian, and fresh juices to heal/sustain the body. Various fitness gurus will educate our community and teach easy, unique, and fun fitness/dance routines that will keep them fit. Health care professionals will be available for questions and health testing. Lastly, our celebrities will be there to motivate, educate, as well as demonstrate, what it takes to bring this full circle.
“NuFitU” encourages individuals throughout the globe to make small, simple changes that lead to healthier lives. The event takes place Saturday August 4th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at EXCHANGE PARK RECREATION CENTER, 2771 Columbia Drive Decatur, GA 30034
