Never too old to invest in health
“My husband and I go to South Africa often to enjoy the sunshine, wide open spaces and all the beautiful places. We love Cape Town, Table Mountain, the Winelands and the Garden Route. On one of these trips, we learned from a friend about the Blueprint Health wellness holidays. Being over 60 and quite overweight, we suddenly became more aware of our health as I was diagnosed in Belgium as an early diabetic.
We decided to schedule a week at the Lanzerac Hotel and Spa into our trip. Our portfolio manager – the person who attends to our personal programme – motivated us and monitored our progress. Our spa treatments, health assessments and excursions to wine tastings and olive farms to name a few, were carefully planned.
The dietician inspired us to eat so that we “keep our genes happy”, which will not only help us lose weight, but also ensure that my blood sugar levels remain normal, thereby avoiding all the problems associated with diabetes. The fitness specialist encouraged us to become active, giving each of us a step counter to keep track of our progress. It has been about six months now, and we have both lost about 15kg”. – Els De S, retiree
