Last March 12, I was given the priveledge to represent again Takbo.ph for an Under Armour event. In celebration of the International Women’s Month, Under Armour (UA) Philippines lined up some great activities for women at the Chi Spa in EDSA Shangri La.
Seeing the itinerary, I got thrilled, there was Yoga session, dancing activity and pampering. Something I really needed at that time. I considered it as my “Me Time”, being away from my boys.
What I am excited about was the Yoga Session. Aside from it will help me for my #OplanTaktakKalawang, because I badly need the stretching for my 5K run the next day, but also I will get a chance to do an Ashtanga Yoga with Bubbles Paraiso, celebrity and certified Yoga Instructor.
Oh! I felt energized after that session. I can feel the positive energy from the gushing waters of the fountain outside, the birds chirping and the breeze of the wind drying my perspiration at the same time cooling my body. Wearing the Under Armour top feels good and really comfortable as it was not absorbing sweat thus kept me dry throughout the activity. We were served with pica pica and fruits and herbs infused refreshments after.
Introduction of the UA Ambassadors commenced. Gretchen Ho, the power couple Coaches Jim and Toni Saret and Bubbles Paraiso gave their women empowering tips to becoming a fit individual. Social media influencer, trainer to celebrities, very fit mom (you should see her AMAZING Abs) and UA brand user, Kat Geronimo @mamakatfitness also gave some insights and her experiences with the brand in her fitness journey and being an inspiration to others.
Raffle prizes were also given away.. Under Armour bags were awarded to lucky attendees who were picked. Ms. Cheshire Que, EDSA Shangri La’s The Health Club Ambassador and Dietician was the very lucky one to be picked to win the Head- to -Toe Under Armour prize. How generous of UA Philippines indeed!
Shape Magazine prepared a very energetic and sexy activity which they called “Gurlesque“. Its a dance workout, like Zumba, but more classy and sexy. Its supposed to be danced wearing heels, which makes it more sophisticated and effective workout, because the balance will be coming from the abdominals. Led by Bench Ortiz we danced like those Man in Heels viral on Youtube.
Here is clip of Bench’s class at Gold’s Gym, to give you an idea of what dance we did. Just imagine him wearing a 5-inch platform mid high boots. *wink*
To wrap up the day, I tried Chi Spa’s 10-minute massage to loosen and relax my shoulder muscles before heading home.
Thank you soo much Takbo.ph, Que and Jinoe Gavan for this opportunity. Under Armour Philippines, Ms. Christine Majadillas and Ms. Anj Casimiro for the invite and the generous take aways. Hope to see you again soon!
