Feeling Great with Get in Shape

A spinning class helps you  get in shape.

This week GIS Spotlight cuts the fat with the Get in Shape-participants who together lost a whopping 100 pounds, 18 inches from their waists and 450 mg of cholesterol.

We start with a look back on the three-month challenge to lose weight, eat right, and feel better inside and out.

First we'll introduce you to the participants: Meet a mother of two trying to balance work, kids, and staying in shape; a father who hopes his kids aren't picking up his unhealthy habits, and a woman who has tried everything from diets and boot camps to personal trainers and seaweed wraps.

Then, we talk to Health Services Authority Nutritionist Bethany Smith on portion distortion, avoiding fad diets and stocking up on the good stuff.

Next we squash all exercise excuses. From water aerobics to karate, zumba to yoga, tune in and find an activity that will suit you.

We also face down stress, and share what you can do to prevent it from becoming a major pain in the neck. And finally, we announce who managed to become GIS' healthiest.

So, tune in for this 30-minute special full of valuable tips that will help you formulate meaningful New Year's resolutions and hit your health goals. Also, visit to find out more about the Get In Shape programme, which is supported by the HSA's Workplace Health and Fitness Challenge.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

This week's show will air on Monday, 28 December at 7 p.m. on Cayman27, and again on Thursday, 31 December at 7:30 pm on Island24.

All the stories seen in this week's edition can also be found on YouTube.
