As part of activities for the Year of Health and Wellness as mandated by government, April has been designated as Fitness Month and several activities have been planned. These activities include three cardio jam sessions at Dominica’s signature ecotourism sites.
These cardio jam sessions are the lead up to the Dominica Fitness Challenge carded for the Pentecost weekend – June 4 – 5, 2022. The Dominica Fitness Challenge will include a triathlon (hiking, cycling, running) and a flag hike for teams of 3 on segments 1 and 2 of the Waitukubuli National Trail.
CEO/Director of Tourism of Discover Dominica Authority Colin Piper notes, “All Dominicans and visitors should be mindful of the need to practice wellness and wellbeing as a part of everyday life, and we encourage as many persons who are able to participate in the activities planned for Fitness Month this April.”
Meantime, Minister for Tourism Denise Charles, states the Year of Health and Wellness is earmarked not only to improve the health and well-being of our residents but also to highlight the many healing attributes of our destination and showcase that to prospective travelers, while encouraging them to come and get fit in Dominica, the most breathtaking outdoor gym.
