UNAIR NEWS – Health is a valuable asset in life. With health, humans can carry out any activities. Maintaining health is not only for now, but also for the future. Maintaining a lifestyle is one of the important ways to keep everyone’s physical and soul healthy.
It inspired Nutrition Student Association (AMAZI) BEM FKM UNAIR to collaborate with UNAIR Faculty of Public Health (FKM) to hold Nutri-Aerobic exercise. Nutri-Aerobic is an aerobic exercise that is held regularly every Friday morning in the south parking lot of FKM UNAIR.
The aerobic exercise was originally a collaboration of Indonesian Nutritionist Association (PERSAGI) and East Java DPP. In 2017, PERSAGI has a program to promote aerobic exercise to cope with obesity and community lifestyle.
In this regard, AMAZI and PERSAGI made a three-year contract (2017–2019) to create aerobic excercise and collaborate with the FKM UNAIR who was also having a similar program. Therefore, a Nutri-Aerobic program was established and it continues today.
After three years, AMAZI BEM FKM UNAIR still wants to carry out routine Nutri-Aerobic activities. As it gives many benefits to FKM UNAIR academic community. That was justified by Shafira Kusuma as the deputy of AMAZI BEM FKM UNAIR 2019. Namely, AMAZI will continue to hold hearings for the extension of the Nutri-Aerobic contract.
“The purpose of Nutri-Aerobic is to maintain the lifestyle. However, this Nutri-Aerobic is for improving physical activity, ” she said.
“Actually, it can also be a place to get to know each other among the community in FKM,” he added.
Good physical activity will make the body healthier and fit. Therefore, Shafira hoped that the entire FKM UNAIR community will be more enthusiastic and welcome the program. That way, FKM UNAIR can be an example for healthy behavior for wider community, especially UNAIR residents. (*)
