 To show my support to NBA FIT, as an individual I also pledge to eat healthier, exercise more regularly and maintain my weight and get adequate sleep. This way, I didn’t only live a healthy lifestyle I also become health advocate to my family especially to the children stressing the importance of being healthy and fit.
