‘Sweat to the pants’, A phrase used to characterise the strict exercise session induced by organisers of Ikorodu fitness festival on members of the Lagos state public service club Ikorodu annex on the 2nd of July 2022.
In a 2hrs concentration that saw elderly folks entirely spent, IKFF coach and initiator, Odufeko Tolulope Emmanuel popularly known as Pukka, revamped the atmosphere of the aptitude expanse, pushing all groups, utilising the theme, ‘No Pain, No Gain’.
Enforced to further hype the second edition of the biggest fitness festival in Ikorodu division, which is slated to happen on August 27th, Promoting longevity, healthy living and a sound mind was painted clearly.
Dr Waheed Ishola, State Director, National Orientation Agency (Lagos State Directorate), who appreciated Ikorodu Fitness Festival team for the pre-workout sensitisation, expressed that though they’ve been organising work-out sessions at the public service club Ikorodu annex, but had never encountered a round like IKFF.
“This is the first day I’ve sweated down to my pants, it has never happened before, all the muscles in my body are completely stretched and alive again!”.
Like Mr Pukka said, ‘No pain No Gain’, majority of our inhabitants are now dormant, going about our different endeavours and ignoring the body system, the body needs physical exercise for sustainability, especially because we’re not eating a balanced diet, a lot of junk foods are entry our body, opening doors to unforeseen diseases which exercise alone can handle”.
“When we take out time to exercise our body, we’ll spend less on hospital bills, my recommendation is for all to promote this style your fitness culture because it is virtually a solution to most of our health challenges, which also gives us longer life due to its measure of preventing afflictions”.
During my youth days, I was a footballer who played up to the National challenge cup level, But as age creeps in, one has left those types of physical exercises, which has made my fitness practices soft and easy. I appreciate IKFF for the aerobics and exercise we did today, which am looking forward to more of” Dr Waheed expanded
Furthermore, Nollywood Actor and Film producer, Yinka Quadri, pointed out that he entered the club about 3 years ago but has not been committed to a fitness exercise like IKFF.
“The session with Ikorodu fitness team is quite exceptional, it was a rigorous style of workout that got every one of us tugging our stamina. I must commend the organisers for deeming it fit to engage the pubic service club (Ikorodu annex)”.
Everyone who cares about their health must come out on the 27th of August to participate in the 2nd edition of Ikorodu fitness festival, I’ll be there and I want to encourage everyone to do the same” Yinka Quadri asserted
