As the last quarter of the year 2021 gathers momentum; and Nigerians, both at home and abroad are counting down to the end of the year, Three Crowns milk, the nation’s leading low cholesterol milk brand from the stable of FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC is poised to get both its consumers and other Nigerians, especially mothers and families, to end this year and enter into the new year physically and mentally fit.
The iconic brand has kicked off the end of year 2021 edition of its health and fitness campaign, tagged “Fitness Challenge.” The campaign would, no doubt, offer Nigerians an exciting time at this year-end season.
It would be recalled that the Fitness Challenge Campaign is a platform designed to help mums keep fit and emphasize the importance of a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and exercise.
As usual, participants have been grouped into three fitness levels: ‘’Newbie (Beginners level), Wannabe (Standard level) and Pro (Advanced level)’’; and consumers are to choose a preferred level they feel most comfortable with.
During the period of the campaign, daily exercise videos tailored for the different levels identified above are deployed across the brand’s digital platforms and consumers are asked to recreate same and share with the brand. Every Saturday, BTL (Below The Line) cardio dance sessions hold offline across locations.
Being a digital led campaign, direct coaching will happen on WhatsApp and Telegram with certified fitness instructors for 30days. It combines daily exciting workout routines posted on the brand’s social media pages (#fitnesschallenge on Instagram; #TC30DaysFitnessChallenge on Facebook and on Twitter) for 30days.

Marketing Manager, Three Crowns, Mrs. Omolara Banjoko while giving details of the campaign, said “Three Crowns acknowledges the pivotal place of mothers in the families and the larger society, that is why Three Crowns has made the care for mothers a top priority as the brand recognizes them as the “Heart of the home’’.
According to her, “in caring for the mothers we ultimately care for everyone in the society. We have seen so many mums participate in the campaign with their children, spouses and friends. This will definitely put them on the right path to a healthy lifestyle.
She further stated that within the duration of the activity, consumers will be encouraged to workout with whatever household material is available to them like buckets, kegs, food trays, water dispenser plastic bottles or do simple routines that do not require expert supervision to accomplish.
Interestingly, the campaign has been hugely successful as testimonies abound from past and present participants as well as the viewing public.
Many Nigerians, especially women are applauding Three Crowns and its handlers for the very thoughtful and highly beneficial initiative.
Mosunmola, a past winner stated that she only stumbled on the announcement about the campaign while trying to re-activate her Instagram handle. In her words, “I didn’t even join the fitness challenge to win. I just wanted to get my groove back and look where it brought me!”
