This is the first blog post so I thought I'd give a little insight into what this blog is about. On one hand, I am very passionate about fitness, and on the other, very passionate about Africans. So I thought I could combine the two and provide fitness tips for Africans. Being an African woman, I understand the feeling of trying to work out and eat right, but finding that the food and tools available to us do not really give us much of an option. Our diet is full of things that are terrible for us. We were not raised with information about what foods are good for our bodies, only our souls. The diet and nutrition programs, although plentiful, are full of meals with ingredients we can't pronounce, and will only use once in our lifetime.
So if you are an African man or woman who has no idea what half of the items in the gym are for, this is for you. If you have no idea what oregano looks like, this is for you. If you don't play a sport, don't know what softball is, and you get involved in teasing contests with your family about whose butt is bigger, this blog is definitely for you.
Blog posts will be up once a week, so please check back every Sunday for new fitness tips. Leave feedback and comments.
