Winter on it's way definitely means a few changes; chilly nights and icy mornings, hot chocolate by the fireplace and those grotesque layers of clothing we have to wear that liken us to an onion that need's peeling. Another thing that the bitter cold brings is a certain laziness in keeping our bodies fit and healthy. We've all done it, and said it. You know the whole, "but it's too cold to go to gym in this weather", or "I'd rather cuddle up on the couch and watch a DVD". But what we don't realize is that we end up spending the entire season on the couch and therefore enter Summer with a couple unnecessary kilo's. Good thing the gorgeous creator behind Health Box, Lisa Raleigh has come up with an inventive new program to keep up moving this Winter.







The well i am fitness and nutrition program is a challenge of a life-time. You have 13 weeks to transform your bodies, habits, and ultimately your life. Lisa's mantra is simple - What you put in,  you'll get out; and the more you try, the more you win.  This unique program is all online. It offers you not only before-and-after assessments (without you actually having to cringe on the scale yourself), but it allows you to continue with any pre-existing fitness programs you may be doing. 


By simply entering the well i am challenge you get a whole host of treasures including a voucher for a FREE Bosch Blender or Juicer (valued at R1100 - available at Hirsch store's nationwide or Tafelberg Furnishers in CT); you'll also be spoilt with a detailed Dis-Chem Health screening at the start of your challenge to make sure you are fit and healthy. This screening includes testing of all the essentials from your BMI to your blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, hight and measurements; a R500 Reebok voucher for the latest RealFlex and Zig Tech trainers plus a custom-made Health Box valued at over R600. This box is like no other because it actually contains a well i am starter kit with a host of extras.


To sum up, just by committing to this challenge you'll  be rewarded with over R3000 worth of products. 





The well i am challenge isn't only about prizes, it's about giving you the tools to live a healthier life, and with that said, if your first Dis-Chem screening reports a high cholesterol, Flora will supply you with a complimentary tub of Flora Pro Activ to take for 3 weeks. Flora will then provide an additional assessment to see how your cholesterol has benefited from their product. Liberty Medical Scheme has generously sponsored each contestant’s final health screenings.  You also gain access to an online library of resources - including certified eating plans and training programmes from experts, video demonstrations, motivational snippets and daily tips. 


There's also an awesome opportunity for groups, or corporates to sign up for this challenge, creating a healthier workforce and thereby increasing productivity levels at work.  You can register your staff for the well i am challenge as it stands, or motivate them with additional in-house incentives. Companies and businesses wanting to showcase their brands are invited to collaborate with well i am, contributing goods, services or discounts to the well i am members. In return, well i am will thank you on their social media pages and add you to their partners’ page with your company logo and details of where people can find you for future reference. Liberty Medical Scheme has subsidized their members, staff and finincial advisors to a 20% discount on the registration fee – and has gone to the effort of having their own branded mobi site made:


Registration is a once-off fee of R899 and has been running since the 15th February. The challenge officially commences on the 10th of April and finishes on the 10th of July; late entries will be accepted up until 4 weeks before the challenge ends and entrants can redeem their bespoke Health Box at their nearest Dis-Chem or have them couriered to their door. After 13 weeks it’s time for show and tell – the worthy winners will be announced on the 31st of July. There is an impressive R120 000 worth of prizes up for grabs, with individual winnings of up to R20 000. In addition to cash prizes, each of the four winners will be rewarded with R5000’s worth of Bosch Appliances. Members can also nominate their personal trainer and gym facilities, with prizes of R10 000 and R5 000 being awarded respectively. The winning individuals and trainers all walk away with R2000’s worth of Reebok apparel.


South Africa's celebrities and media personalities have also taken this challenge to heart, and you'll see some familiar faces getting fit and healthy including 3 Talk’s Noelene, comedian Dan Nicholl and DJ Lady Lea have all signed up for the well i am challenge, alongside radio personalities, Sam Cowen and Nicole Da Silva. 


well i am is more than a fitness challenge, it’s a wellness revolution, and its unique blend of motivation, inspiration, support, incentives, rewards, tips and tools don’t distract from the well i am mission: helping you get you the results you want. So with Winter in the air, don't let the cold winds distract you from ultimately being the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. It starts with the commitment, and you'll be surprised and proud at the results you see.
