Bouldering and More in Activo Fitness

Bouldering and More in Activo Fitness

Activo Fitness is the most sophisticated gym in Tagum City. They have the latest gym equipment to suit your needs. Aside from sweating out through treadmills and lifting weights, they also offer TRX workout, zumba, zumba step and yoga classes.

Although they have been into the business for quiet a while, they never run out of exciting features to offer to gym enthusiasts.

This Saturday, May 28, will be the launching of the Fitness Boulder Wall, the first in the city. Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses. While it can be done without any equipment whatsoever, most climbers use climbing shoes to help secure footholds, chalk to keep their hands dry, and bouldering mats to prevent injuries from falls (From Google).

Climbing may look simple, but if you experience it there, you can really say that it’s not. It is so hard to carry your whole body and rely on the strength that comes from your arms and legs.

Difficult it is, but the prizes of the challenge awaits the one that can endure the pain and surpass the challenges.

So if you want to have some adventure, try climbing the boulder wall. It is not just fun and exciting, but a great exercise for those who want to skip the gym equipment.

Be part of a one of a kind adventure. Head on to Activo Fitness and register now.

I always make sure that we celebrate Valentine’s Day in an unforgettable and unique way. So when we knew about this pre-Valentine fun run of Big 8 Corporate Hotel, we signed up. Actually, we ran out of couples shirt so we got the shirt for singles, but our category was still couples.

The program proper started late because of the rain, but it did not stop us from reaching our goal – finish the race and have fun! Licensed Zumba instructors initiated the stretching and warm up exercises so that we will be conditioned during the run.

Me and Jules ran for four kilometers together and surprisingly, we were the first couple to reach the finish line. We were so happy with this accomplishment. We won some gift certificates and pool passes during the raffle.

Together with the other couples, we were tasked to declare our promise of love to one another infront of other participants. It is such a nice feeling to tell the whole world how much you love a person. We were also given a lock to be placed in their Love Lock area.

The race began and ended with a color blast.

Zumba With A Twist

Zumba With A Twist

December 1, 2015 was a special day for Big 8 Corporate Hotel because it was the lighting of their Christmas Tree. Their tree is the highest in Visayas and Mindanao in a hotel-set up. There were also Christmas decorations all around the hotel.

To make the event more meaningful, they conducted a Fitness Color Blast Zumba wherein powders of different colors were thrown at us while dancing, making different color combinations on our white dri-fit shirts.  The Big 8 Hotel staff randomly throw it at us, in front and at the back of our shirts. No worries because the colored powders were nontoxic and easy to wash.

We really had fun and it was my first time to join this kind of Zumba. I called it Zumba with a twist. The instructors were also very good as they can really make you move and dance. Their choice of music were also good.

I am into Zumba about three years now and I really like it because you are just dancing and it is already your workout! Hundreds of calories are already burned.

I hope to join more Zumba parties and extraordinary Zumba parties such as this.
