FAVOUR CHINAH (aka Bryan) advocates on need for healthy lifestyle for athletes and artistes


FAVOUR CHINAH, (a.k.a BRYAN) plays RB for London Blitz, a BAFA-registered British American Football Team.

He is also a model, actor, and nurse pursuing a Master’s in Adult Nursing from London South Bank University.

As a student nurse, Bryan aims to promote healthy lifestyle practices and disease prevention awareness, especially for athletes and artists.

In general, high-energy performers train, play, and perform hard, yet most ignore coronary heart health and succumb to cardiac arrest.

Sudden cardiac death is the most common cause of death among athletes and artists.

Bryan believes awareness can help save lives and prevent such unexpected deaths.

He suggests educating athletes and artists about their heart condition and necessitating routine heart checkup.

Further, Bryan thinks managers and coaches must also engage and make athletes and artists comply with healthier practices.

A nurse who plays sports, Bryan connects the best of two worlds to help athletes and artists better their lives. Poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and cholesterol can trigger coronary heart disease.

Left ignored, the underlying heart condition becomes fatal for people who play or perform high-energy activities.

For those with heart conditions, high-intensity training, and exercise could even become a risk factor.

So, Bryan suggests keeping heart health, blood pressure, and heart rate in check to ensure a healthy, happy, and longer life.
