Big Brother Naija 2017 Housemate, Ekemini Ekerete, popularly known as Kemen, on Thursday in Abuja revealed that plans have been concluded for the takeoff of his TV show on wellness and fitness.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, Kemen said, the television show is intended to create awareness and make the fitness industry an acceptable one in the country.
He said, “It is going to be a 30 minutes workout session with me every morning from Mondays to Fridays.
“It is basically going to give the viewers that cannot go to the gym an opportunity to workout in front of their TV set.
“It will involve different kinds of workout; from aerobics to yoga, strength training, dance fitness to high intensity interval training, table and all kinds for different days,’’he said.
The ship manager turned fitness entrepreneur said his intention is to raise awareness for fitness and health to a point where the whole nation will accept it as a lifestyle.
According to him, “Fitness is supposed to be a lifestyle, bearing in mind that it is only a healthy body that can have a healthy mind.
“This is because we are in a society where people go through a lot of stress; one can only survive when you make fitness a part of your life.
“This is because it keeps away depression, adverse effects of stress and also helps the individual to become a better and happier person.
“When you work out regularly, you will be happy with yourself, looks and the way you feel; I am looking at using fitness to control or better still eradicate negativity in the society, “Kemen said.
On how soon the programme will come on air, the fitness guru said he would not want to let the cat out of the bag.
“It may start next week, next two weeks or next month, but I don’t want to give you a time line right now, but it will start very soon.’’
The Chief Executive Officer of 6 Packs Nigeria reiterated that the programme is going to be on a television channel with a wider coverage.
“We are in the social media era where my YouTube channel will be there at least to give you a glimpse of what you missed on TV.
“I am also working on a few shorter workout skits on some new media channels to help with explanatory workout.
“I am going to be regular on your TV screen and social media channels this year,’’ Kemen said.
