Milton Keynes Afro-Caribbean community reminded fitness is fun

A big part of the event involved Afro-Caribbean dance work outs using genres of music such as Reggaeton, Dancehall and Bachata.Dr Oke said: “Exercise comes with a negative connotation, we want to show the people what the Afro-Caribbean community brings to fitness… “We’re bringing what we have in our community to the larger community.”You’re laughing, you’re smiling, you’re connecting with other people- that’s what this is all about.”Dr Oke explained she had also lost her mum to diabetes and warned obesity was a “big problem” in the UK.She said: “When you move more, when you look at what you eat more, we can solve that problem, one family at a time.”I know what it is like if we don’t do the right thing now, I’m already in my late 40s and I want to help other people.”The event was targeting families in the Milton Keynes Afro-Caribbean community.
