NAPLES, Fla. (June 7, 2017) – Fiddler’s Creek has been designated a Blue Zones Project community by the Blue Zones Project-Southwest Florida, in recognition of the community’s demonstrative commitment to promoting a healthful lifestyle. The Blue Zones Project-Southwest Florida is a region-wide well-being initiative focused on making each community a healthier, happier place to live, work and play.
“Fiddler’s Creek has long advocated wellness through a variety of activities, programming and incredible amenities, and we greatly appreciate the Blue Zones’ recognition of our efforts,” said Ron Albeit, general manager of The Club & Spa at Fiddler’s Creek Community LLC.
As part of this project, residents were asked to sign the four-step Blue Zones Personal Pledge demonstrating a commitment to learn, measure, participate and complete a checklist. So far, over 25 percent of residents have signed the pledge expressing their commitment to self-improvement and a happier, healthier lifestyle.
“We are incredibly fortunate to have residents that are passionate about wellness and healthful living and we applaud their support of the Blue Zones mission,” said Albeit.
The national Blue Zones project for clubs, communities and businesses promotes a comprehensive approach to improving health and wellness through lifestyle changes, including exercise, healthy eating and reducing stress. Locally, the Blue Zones Project-Southwest Florida is sponsored by NCH Healthcare System in collaboration with Healthways Inc. and employs the first-ever daily assessment of U.S. residents’ health and well-being as measured by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
The Blue Zones Project is based on the New York Times best-selling books written by Dan Buettner, “The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World’s Healthiest People,” and “Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way,” both published by National Geographic.
Blue Zones employs evidence-based ways to help people live longer and healthier lives. Since 2009, Blue Zones has applied the tenets of the books to clubs, communities and corporations across the country and has successfully raised life expectancy and lowered health care costs while decreasing smoking and obesity rates.
