Barbados Health and Fitness
The Bajan population has a vibrant diet resulting in an incredibly high rate of diabetes. We have one of the highest amputee rates in the entire world, and it’s because of our diabetic population.
Other than diabetes, obesity and heart disease are also quite common in Bajans. Even though we wouldn’t like to admit it, alcoholism is another problem as well.
We also have a large number of centenarians on the island, and our lives are very low-stress, even stress-free.
However, in the last few years, we have wised up to our unhealthy diets, bad choices and lack thereof, as far as exercise goes.
Barbados has become more health-conscious, with events popping up annually. National Trust hikes, hashes, Nation fun ride, fun run, fun walk, each is providing towards a healthier population.
Even our general diet has changed slightly as more restaurants and eateries are starting to cater to the health-conscious consumer.
We now have options such as barbecued or baked as opposed to fried, and salads have become increasingly abundant.
The number of gyms, health clubs and spas in Barbados grows exponentially every year.
The change is happening slowly, but it’s happening. We are working hard toward making the next generation of Barbadians healthier and happier.
Barbados Spas, Gyms and Health Clubs
Barbados has multiple first-rate spas, gyms and health clubs for you to enjoy while staying fit and relaxed while on vacation in Barbados.
With soft sandy beaches, bordered by the cold, pristine crystal-like turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, with the gentle island breezes flowing through your hair, while little waves delicately tickle your toes.
You don’t get to chill out in Barbados often enough, so when you do, we like to make it as fantastic as possible.
The serene setting at these health and beauty spas in Barbados will take your breath away. Imagine warm Barbadian sunlight dispersing through sheer curtains bounce around on gently pastel walls and glistening in the clear waters of fountains and waterfalls and flowing water running slowly over smooth river rocks, ambient music playing in the background.
Did I mention the cool Caribbean breeze helped along by lazy ceiling fans? All of this before you even meet the people who work here.
