Miss CARIFIN Fitness Pageant 2018

It was a fun-filled, talent-packed, exciting showing at the final leg of the Miss CariFin competition 2018. It took place during CariFin’s annual Fun and Family day held at Sevilla Golf Course on May 20th.

The entire competition spanned the entire games – from the one lap to the Fun and Family day. Each queen was expected to participate in as many events as possible leading up to the grand finale. They were also required to take part in various events on the day. The true test came at the dance-off, fitness fashion show and the question and answer segment. The ladies all did great, but there can only be one winner. After the judges completed the gruelling task of combining and tallying all scores, the results were as follows:

1st place – CBTT – Cadajah Spencer

2nd place – First Citizens – Stacyanne Jack

3rd place – Republic Bank Limited – Kadesha Charles

4th place – ANSA Financial Services – Aprill Lewis

We spoke with some of the contestants about their experience and this is what they had to say;

Cadajah Spencer:

“Going into Miss CariFin competition 2018, I had a personal quote saying ” I was born to win, but to be a winner I must plan to win, prepare to win and expect to win. So being crowned the queen was a feeling of excitement and something I was eager to explore. I was confident and cheerful that if I prepared myself both mentally and physically I would be successful at achieving the goal of winning. It was an overwhelming and memorable experience.” 

Kadesha Charles:

I am very grateful for the CariFin experience. I felt as though I gave it my all and did my best. The entire experience challenged me as I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to try new things, made new friends along the way and learned how to dance. I truly got the full CariFin experience because I got to participate in all the events and had the opportunity to be queen as well. The walk took a lot out of me after having to participate in the dance off and the aerobics but I still did my best. I really did have fun on the day and so did my entire family.”

Stacyanne Jack:

“My experience at Miss CariFin was superb! Although the fitness aspect of the competition was challenging due to my injury I had a fantabulous time!!!! It was great to see supporters come out and cheer on their respective queens. I even made some new friends.  Overall the day was definitely an example of the CariFin’s theme “fun, friendship and fitness”. I have no regrets and would definitely do it again.”

Cadajah Spencer:

“Going into Miss CariFin competition 2018, I had a personal quote saying ” I was born to win, but to be a winner I must plan to win, prepare to win and expect to win. So being crowned the queen was a feeling of excitement and something I was eager to explore. I was confident and cheerful that if I prepared myself both mentally and physically I would be successful at achieving the goal of winning. It was an overwhelming and memorable experience.” 

Aprill Lewis:

“Although I was the 3rd runner-up, it was a wonderful experience, and I had a really great time so much so that I am still very tired lol.”

We would like to congratulate Miss CariFin 2018 – Cadajah Spencer and all the ladies who took part in the completion.  We look forward to continued support as we move forward into the CARIFIN Games 2019.

ON THE ROAD TO SEVILLA…here we come!

Miss CariFin Fitness Pageant 2018

The countdown is on to the biggest fitness event within Trinidad and Tobago’s financial sector – The CariFin Games. Around this time – leading-up to the grand finale – all stakeholders should be getting ready to come out and represent their teams.  The stakes are high, as competitors prepare themselves to vie for various fitness titles and bragging rights. Amongst the titles and most sought-after is the ‘Miss CariFin 2018’.

The Miss CariFin 2018 competition has already gotten off the ground with the delegates having participated in earlier events such as the ‘Torch Relay,” “Aerobathon,” “Chancellor Challenge” and many more, which earned them pre-Games points.
This ‘all-female’ competition, is guaranteed to live up to the hype, seeing strong competitors such as Aprill Lewis of team Ansa Financial Services, Cadajah Spencer, Central Bank of T&T, Kadesha Charles, Republic Bank Ltd., and Staceyanne Jack, First Citizens, all ready and able to receive the crown from last year’s winner, Falomi Marcano (FC).

This year’s Miss CariFin competition includes six categories, one of which will make its official debut on the day of the Games. This new category is entitled “Athleisure Wear – Fashion,” which gives the delegates an opportunity to display their dedication to fitness through fashion. Each delegate is asked to be fully-attired in what they deem ‘suitable’ for a day of FUN, FITNESS AND FRIENDSHIP. Delegates can showcase their own sense of style bearing in mind, it must be functional and appropriate for the occasion.

With the category comprising four sections: Head Gear can range from du-rags to sweat bands with the respective company’s logo; Body Wear can be any practical outfit for running, jumping and other physical activities done on the day, with delegates cognizant that outfit/s-of-choice must not be too revealing or suggestive given the Games being a family affair; Foot Wear requires the use of comfortable shoes, preferable sneakers; and Overall Style speaks to how each article of clothing when worn by the delegates, compliments each other and completes the entire ‘fitness look’.

Want to increase points?
It will help tremendously, if delegates explain their choice of brand, style and functionality and, why that particular model.

As time draws nearer to May 20th, each delegate is advised to eat appropriately-balanced meals, maintain exercise regimen to boost endurance, practice their Question-and-Answer skills, and look forward to having FUN, FUN, FUN.

On the Road to Sevilla…here we come!
