"It appears to me that the majority of young, fit people are focused only on how they look now and how strong they feel now, rather than being conscious of what they are doing for their future. We tend to forget that what we do now for our bodies not only gives our muscles and bones strength when we age, but also our brain, and without a healthy and strong mind in old age, a strong body means nothing. These factors are what have inspired me to become a Fitness Ambassador for CHeBA."
What does "Healthy Brains. Positive Ageing" mean to me?
'Healthy Brains. Positive Ageing' to me means being able to age well, both body and mind, and the illnesses that affect people as they age have much less impact.
Naomi is a born and bred Eastern Suburbs Sydney-sider. Although she works in the city as a Regional Sales Manager for a company called ansarada, she loves being able to run by the beach or train in the park any moment she can. She's a lover of all things travel, good food, good coffee and good friends, which she attributes to her Nigerian-Lebanese heritage. According to Naomi people will also attest to the fact that she's a lover of netball and the general consensus is that she will be on the court well into old age! We love having Naomi on board as a CHeBA Champion!
The CHeBA Champions are Fitness Ambassadors for the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing. These fitness professionals and enthusiasts in their 20s and 30s are championing healthy brain ageing through healthy lifestyles from a young age.
