Sisters supporting people to take steps to a healthier lifestyle with online 0-5k five week challenge

By Sarah Edwards at

Two sisters-in-law from South Oxfordshire are encouraging women to put one foot in front of the other and enjoy a healthier lifestyle, by joining their RunFit with Herbalife 0-5k five week challenge, starting on Monday 20 August.

Three times marathon runner, 34-year-old Lucy Shelton, and 39-year-old Victoria Brandon started following the Herbalife Nutrition Plan* for a healthier lifestyle last year. Both had very different reasons for starting out on their Herbalife journey but both have had fantastic results which led them to become independent members of the organisation, helping other people change their lives for the better.

Lucy from Abingdon said: “Sometimes women find it hard to get to an exercise class due to child care commitments, working late or find it hard to motivate themselves to exercise alone.

“What we are offering is a dedicated online support group where we will be running once a week as a team and also streaming live on Facebook.  If people can’t make it to a specific location they can start from their home where I will going through a live warm up and will be posting tips and runs throughout the week in our online community.

Mum of two, Victoria, who has lost one stone since following the Herbalife plan, says she has so much more energy now and encourages people to join them if they would like to achieve a personalised goal.

She explained: “Since following the plan I now have more energy and want to exercise. I hate exercising alone and prefer to go the gym with friends to give me that motivation. Our 0-5k five week challenge is perfect for people wanting to take that first step to a healthier lifestyle. It is also a great opportunity to meet new friends.
