A healthy weight for a healthy life: Halza sponsors Souqpinoy’s Slimdown Challenge

Thanks to our new Partner The Medical City Dubai (read the press release here), Halza has become a sponsor of Souqpinoy’s Slimdown Challenge, a reality-tv fitness program targeting the Filipino Community living in the GCC. The challenge promotes a balanced diet and exercise as major components for a healthy lifestyle.

At Halza, we believe that living a healthy lifestyle and getting support from others is key to happiness – supporting the challenge was then a logical step for us.

What is Souqpinoy’s Slimdown Challenge? How does it work and where can I watch it?

Slimdown Challenge is a reality-tv health awareness & fitness show encouraging 22 Filipino challengers to lose the most weight, giving them the opportunity to win a prize worth 10,000 AED.
Meet the challengers here and learn more about their story 

Each challenger has been given a diet plan & meal schedule and must participate during 6 weeks, in fitness training sessions conducted by a coach for 30 to 45min a day, 4 to 5 days a week

Every Thursday, all challengers face a physical assessment supervised by The Medical City, and 2 participants are then eliminated. The elimination factors include the amount of weight lost, attendance, performance and an audience vote.

The show is broadcast live, 5 days a week (from Sunday to Thursday, 8-9pm Dubai Time), on Souqpinoy’s Facebook page – No need to live in the UAE to watch the competitors’ journey, follow it here!

Previous episodes are also available for viewing here. The challenge will run for 6 weeks, from February 25 to April 6, 2018.

How Is Halza getting involved?

  • All 22 competitors have been given complementary subscriptions to Halza Essential (more info about our plans here). Challengers use the HALZA app to update their medical information, weight goal and track their progress throughout the challenge.
  • Every Thursday:
    our mascot Dr Hen and the Halza team are guests on the Live show to support the competitors during the medical assessment and elimination ceremony.
    Halza is giving away 10 subscriptions to viewers who react live on Souqpinoy’s Facebook video, writing HALZA in the comments – the 3 first comments win a Premium Subscription, the following 7 an Essential subscription.
