SocaSLIMDOWN 1 SocaMotion Facebook Page


Just as our fitness series is a 360 degree Caribbean experience, our programs are wholistic to address fitness, nutrition and wellness to support healthy lifestyles.  Luckily, Caribbean cuisine offers flavorful and natural options that can make weight loss tasty and enjoyable instead of feeling like punishment or cutting back.   Each SocaSLIMDOWN lasts at least 3 months to discourage crash dieting and includes interactive workshops, nutritional information, tasty recipes and great prizes to encourage progress.

The SocaSLIMDOWN Weight Loss Challenge takes advantage of that and provides motivation to lose weight for your own personal reasons or for any upcoming Carnival festival using a carefully developed program and great prizes. Founder, Onya West, used her diverse studies and work in nutrition, medicine, international public health, and health advocacy to develop this program in 2010 and launched the first SocaSLIMDOWN in time for Trinidad Carnival 2011 where "SocaSlimmers" were able to lose weight over the holidays despite the cold weather and holiday temptations.  The next SocaSLIMDOWN for Labor Day 2011 will be bigger and better with additional expertise, activities and prizes to help make healthy living as easy as a Caribbean breeze!
