Next Monday 16 October 2017, Daniela Hantuchova will lead a Sports Health Day at the CK SportCenter in Kockelscheuer between 15:00 and 17:00.
Luxembourg's Ministry of Health and the International Women's Tennis Promotion Association (IWTP) are organising the "Lëtz GIMB!" Sports Health Day which will take place during the BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Tennis Tournament Open 2017.
In order to promote a healthy and balanced diet and regular physical activity, the inter-ministerial programme "Gesond iessen, mei bewegen" (GIMB) places particular emphasis on raising awareness and motivating people to live healthier lifestyles and especially young people.
In Luxembourg, almost 15.6% of adults and 4.9% of children between the ages of 6 and 12 are considered obese; 8.6% of children are overweight. The reasons are unbalanced diets and excessively sedentary lifestyles.
In this sense, Sport Health Day, with the support of tennis player Daniela Hantuchova, allows participants to participate in discussions on a balanced diet and the importance of daily physical activity or to learn about exciting racket games - certain assets in favour of health.
