This week, the #GetFit campaign included an inspiring breast cancer ambassador from Israel, Ruti Lapidot (add hyperlink to article), who sees herself as a winner for having overcome disease, hoping that more people will be inspired to take up sport as part of their daily routine. Readers also got a musical treat from professional sport motivator João Rodrigues (add hyperlink to article), a gym instructor who inspires all the people who come to his classes to surpass their own expectations on a daily basis.
These people’s story motivates many other people to take that extra step towards healthy living, something which has been shown throughout the #GetFit campaign.
