Perozzi helps deliver health and wellness
Boxing champion Teresa Perozzi and author Agathe Holowatinc have created a health and wellness company.
Fuelled Bermuda Ltd will start operations on July 15.
The co-founders say the company is devoted to helping the people of Bermuda get healthier, lose weight, feel more energised and enhance performance in all areas of their life by realising success in their health-food related goals.
Fuelled will offer one-on-one high performance food coaching, nutrition workshops, seminars, presentations, church events, gym events, company events, health food cooking demonstrations, personal chef services, as well as specific services to restaurants and bars to help them “uplevel” their menu options so it's more convenient for Bermuda residents “to make nutritious and tasty food and beverage choices everywhere they go”.
It will also offer products such as Bermuda-specific health food brochures, printed information guides and merchandise.
Ms Perozzi and Ms Holowatinc also aim to do charitable work at no cost to underserved communities in Bermuda.
Ms Perozzi is a former WBA middleweight world boxing champion, award-winning crossfit competitor in Bermuda, and a certified sports masseuse.
Ms Holowatinc is the author of health food book Fuelled: Transform Your Body, Enhance Your Energy, Supercharge Your Life and is a certified integrative nutrition health coach, having graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York.
Ms Perozzi said: “I have personally and professionally been involved in the sports, fitness and wellness spaces in Bermuda for over a decade and am looking to expand my horizons and create an even greater impact on our island community by adding a health/nutrition/food element to what I am a part of, and what I deliver.
“That's why this company was created, and Agathe is uniquely qualified to work in this company with me because she has actually written, researched, developed and published a handbook on optimal health and nutrition. It is selling very well and making an impact on people's lives around the world. I really like the name, too, and what it conveys.
“Her education has equipped her with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Agathe loves to cook and has spent 20-plus years thinking about how she can deliver food that will actually benefit those who eat it — that will actually fuel their body.”
She added: “I am very excited to team up with her in this new venture that aims to serve the people of Bermuda and enhance health and wellbeing throughout the island. This has truly been a dream of mine. We look forward to sharing more information about it soon.”
Ms Perozzi said she will continue to run Body in Balance, her massage therapy business.
