Celebrating Active Nation Day in Switzerland

This weekend the world celebrated #activenationday. It is a movement created in 2012 by Lorna Jane to inspire women, their families, communities, cities and the world to live a more Active Life! Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980, with 39% of the adult population now overweight and 1.9 billion of the world’s population not getting sufficient exercise. This is troublesome & we need to start making changes.

This is where Active Nation Day comes it. #activenationday is a day dedicated to Active Living – a day where people are asked to consider putting their health and fitness first – resetting their commitment and inspiring others to do the same.

And now we are celebrating Active Nation Day in Switzerland!

That’s why we got together at Balboa in Zurich this Sunday for a full day of workouts;  a light morning jog, an intense hour of circuit training followed by acro yoga and some handstand practice. To refuel our bodies after the strenuous workouts we had delicious raw vegan desserts homemade by Xenia and Lara, and of course our juices made for the perfect refreshment post-workout. What a perfect day!
