The first ever Jollys Pharmacy Cardio Jam which involved Jolly’s National Clinic (JNC), J. Astaphan & Co. Ltd, FLOW, Arden Sounds and DEPEX Color Lab kicked off with quite a substantial crowd on October 11th at the Astaphans Shopping Centre parking lot.

The event started off at five thirty with a live Dj, Dj Mystic who provided music to help the audience danced themselves into shape.

The mike was then passed on to Josiah Moses the fitness instructor at the Jollys Pharmacy Fitness University, who led the hour long afternoon cardio work out. The event was described as quite successful as the enthusiasm in the air was felt not only by the crowd but by the Jollys Pharmacy staff as well who helped make it the success that it was. With an eye on the chronic non-communicable diseases (CNCDs) epidemic, the cardio jam provided an energetic, health-building workout to help fight disease and get into shape.

According to Mr. Malcolm Pendenque from Jollys Marketing Department, the event is intended to be regular one, which will take place on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Citizens and foreigners are encouraged to come and take part in the aerobic sessions in the effort to fight against the chronic non-communicable diseases (CNCDs) epidemic.

      for the folks with their thumbs down,i understand stupidity and lack of foresight is very rampant in dominica this is why dominica is going nowhere, so let me rethrase my my comment statement, the organizers of the event should provide tee shirts with written logos which would lead to more peoples participation,this would also help with advertisement for the program and officiate the whole exercise…geeez dominica needs a educational shakeup nation wide

    Ok Lovely initiative. A suggestion is to put up a big screen (i dont mean a 54″ tv i meant projector image) so those in the back can see the instructors in the front. Keep it up
