fitness; with Netflix documentaries like ‘The Game changers’, ‘What the Health’,’The Magic Pill, and so many more, people are understanding the inter-dependent relationship between health and fitness, which means eating the ‘right’ food together with exercise. With instagram and the world of social media filled with personal trainers sharing body perfect images, and celebrities from the East and West setting strong examples too, ethnic minorities including British Asian men and women are also learning about good health and fitness regimes and most importantly, how they can override the risks they carry of heart related diseases or diabetes based on their ethnic backgrounds.
