What motivates someone to change his bad habits and start living the healthy lifestyle? Year in and year out, you will hear from your friends and colleagues about their new year’s resolution, whether their plan to be fit or going on a diet. Truth be told, it’s not just a new year’s resolution. Being healthy and fit is not something that you need to do so you can post in your social media. It’s about loving and caring for yourself and your loved ones. Because cliché as it seems, health is the real wealth. That is what Slimmer’s World’s Great Bodies 2016 is all about. It is not about the sculptured and toned bodies. But the journey of the 29 finalists who participated in this year’s annual fitness event. Slimmer’s World International is the Philippines’ foremost name in slimming, health, fitness and beauty. The fitness company pride itself with over 36 years of excellent service in providing great bodies and great skin. The number of satisfied clients continues to soar with more and more members dramatically shedding off excess pounds and inches permanently.
