Toby’s advocates health and fitness and hopes to connect with the rising number of health-conscious individuals, particularly the fitness enthusiasts, by holding trendy workouts.

PRESS RELEASE

Toby’s Sports, the leading sports retailer in the Philippines, recently hosted the first Toby’s Sports Arnold’s Army Open Workout at the Bonifacio High Street Amphitheatre, wherein fitness icon Arnold Aninion shared different group exercises and held a live free workout for a select few.

At the event, Andrea Tan, Toby’s Sports Head of Marketing and Communications, affirmed that Toby’s Sports has always advocated a healthy and active lifestyle among millions of Filipino consumers. Noting that more people have become increasingly health conscious, Tan disclosed that Toby’s Sports aims to connect with them—and other fitness enthusiasts—by holding complimentary trendy workout sessions.

The first to lead Toby Sports’ workout activities was Aninion, an eminent fitness coach who trains celebrity clients such as Anne Curtis, Isabelle Daza, Solenn Heussaff, and Georgina Wilson, among others. He is also credited for social arbiter Raymond Gutierrez’s dramatic transformation.

“The enthusiastic response we received from the public and industry influencers was overwhelming,” said a highly pleased Tan, who revealed that Toby Sports was just looking to holding a walk-in event. “But after posting about it online,” Tan said, “it generated so much interest that we had to do pre-registration a couple days before the open workout. The event likewise drew attention from local celebrities like Michael de Mesa and Eric ‘Eruption’ Tai, among others.”

Tan averred that being trained by Arnold Aninion, or becoming part of #ArnoldsArmy for a day at least, is a distinct privilege. “We hope that our participants will walk away with some workout tips from Arnold, himself—those that they can do at home or in the gym, even without a trainer,” she announced at the onset of the event.

True enough, the workout participants had an intimate exercise session with the popular trainer, who appeared thoroughly engaged as he encouraged them to work out beyond their perceived limitations.

Tan happily noted that the event’s success was due to the fact that people are more stimulated when exercising with a group—and using a variety of workout styles—because of the social atmosphere and community vibe. “With group exercise,” Tan pointed out, “you are likely to work out harder than you would if you were on your own.”

Apart from the workouts, information on fitness recovery strategies was likewise underscored. “That is something you should know when you kick-start your fitness journey,” Tan related as she acknowledged that people exercise for a variety of reasons: to lose weight, to lead a generally healthier lifestyle, to manage stress, and much more.

“Whatever their fitness motivation is, or whatever stage in their fitness journey they’re in,” Tan stated, “we want them to know that Toby Sports, as the leader in sports and fitness, will always have their backs.”

To be sure, Arnold’s Army Open Workout was just the beginning. “This wonderful workout experience merely set them on the path to a consistently active lifestyle and improved their overall health,” Tan said.

For his part, Arnold Aninion, who has acquired iconic status for his revolutionary and life-changing workouts, assured his students that they will get closer to their workout goals “when they train with me.”

10,000 runners set to join the 10th TCS Clark Animo International Marathon

PRESS RELEASE

CLARK GLOBAL CITY – The De La Salle Alumni Association Pampanga Chapter is to set to hold the 10th TCS Clark Animo International Marathon on March 10 this year, promising a more fun and exhilarating run to this year’s event with internationally certified courses and special activities.

With 10,000 runners expected to join the event, it will feature a 42.2 km marathon, a half marathon, as well as 10 km, 5 km, and 2.5 km courses.

“We initially had 600 participants on our first year,” Atty, Melvin Panlilio, President of DLSAA – Pampanga, said. “But our runners and members of DLSAA-P gradually grew through the years, giving us the opportunity to give back to more beneficiaries.

“We’re likewise proud to announce that for 2019, our courses have been given international certification by the International Association of Athletic Federations and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races,” he added.

“The TCS Clark Animo International Marathon and associated races are all conducted on IAAF-AIMS Certified Courses. This provides a guarantee to runners that they have run the correct distance and, therefore, their recorded time are valid and will be recognized internationally for qualifying and rankings purposes. This is not only particularly important for runners who aim to join international races like the Boston Marathon, it is for all runners participating in this event. It is never a good outcome to train for a race like a marathon only to discover, after completing the event, that the course they finished did not have the correct distance and their time invalid,” Jumbo Tayag, Race Director, explained.

To make Animo Run’s 10th year more exciting, cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third placers of the 5 km, 10 km, 21 km, and 42 km distances in the men’s and women’s categories. A special incentive will also be given to runners with the best costume. One runner each from the Adult (18 years old and above) and Kiddie (17 years old and below) categories will likewise receive cash prizes.

This year’s races will see 1,200 participants from Tata Consultancy Services, one of the biggest call center companies in Clark, and a sponsor of the event as well.

Potatoes: The Go-To Food of Athletes

potato

Have you felt so exhausted after working out or just doing household chores or simply walking around the block?  You are not alone! It’s called energy depletion, which is especially common with athletes who engage in extensive trainings and workouts.

Runners like me rely on carbohydrates as our main source of energy. It helps our brain and body function properly.  As we consume carbohydrates, our body breaks it down into smaller sugar molecules called glucose which are stored in the liver and muscles. It will then be converted to energy to help fuel physical activity.

10589135_898003150214229_352216777_n

The glycogen in our muscles gets depleted as our physical activity increases, thus a need for more carbohydrates.  Eating the right amount of carbohydrates before and after vigorous activities is therefore extremely important.

One excellent source of carbohydrates is potato!  Thanks to Potatoes USA-Philippines, high quality potatoes are now in the Philippines.

US potatoes are classified as a superfood, a nutrient-dense food that can help fuel huge exertions from physical exercise and movement. Potatoes are also high in potassium, even more so than a banana, and are also full of vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, iron and magnesium.

US potatoes are available in fresh, frozen and dehydrated forms. Fresh potatoes are the pick of the crop, carefully sized and graded based on standards of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).

potatoes USA

Frozen US potatoes are premium potatoes quick-frozen in a state-or-the-art process which locks in the flavor and nutrients.  They come in all sizes – frozen whole, frozen half-shell and the most popular frozen straight cut, wedges, crinkle cut, lattice, curly for fries and hash browns.

Another variant is US dehydrated potatoes, they are compactly packaged and perfect for a wide array of dishes such as soups, stews, sauces and many more.

I can’t wait to try new potato dishes! I’m excited to start making recipes for my pre or post run meals. Of course, I’ll soon experiment on old family recipes by substituting frozen potatoes for fresh potatoes!

In the meantime, you can click on this link to see recommended potato recipes that can help power athletic performance: https://www.potatogoodness.com/recipe-category/performance/.

US potatoes are now available in supermarkets and groceries nationwide.  For more information on US potatoes, visit https://www.potatogoodness.com/ or like and follow Potatoes USA-Philippines on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PotatoesUSAPhilippines/.

Ayala backs PATAFA

35963508_1972991579401044_9080625835244781568_o (002)

Ayala Corporation has reaffirmed its support to the development and training of the country’s national track and field athletes, giving them access to the facilities of its newly opened Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite.

Ayala had recently linked up with the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association and served as title sponsor of the just-concluded Ayala Philippine Athletics Championships in Iligan, Isabela.

“We believe in our national athlete’s potential to inspire, drive and instill collective nationalism through sports,” said Ayala’s John Philip Orbeta.  “One of the biggest gaps is an internationally certified athletics facility which the Vermosa Sports Hub provides as means to improve their performance and competitiveness.”

36302522_2145658528782012_5094947182998454272_n

At PATAFA’s new official home, athletes will train in the only international Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) certified track and field oval in the Philippines with specifications and standards equivalent to those they will compete with internationally.  Aside from the existing oval and Olympic-sized pool, upon completion of the Sports Hub’s first phase, PATAFA will also have access to the 600-square meter Sante Fitness Lab, a first-of-its-kind combined facilities in the country which will feature a strength and conditioning fitness facility, sports rehab areas, as Sports Science Laboratory, a dance studio, a spinning class area, bike shop and services, a nutrition and fitness cafe, VO2 max/lactate testing, plus conference and lecture rooms.  Future plans include provision for a 3,000-seat multipurpose indoor sports arena.

Manila Water Company Inc., through its subsidiary Manila Water Total Solutions, will also be supporting this project with Ayala through a hydration sponsorship of Healthy Family Purified Water to the PATAFA athletes.  Healthy Family will be supplying 4,000 bottles monthly of its 500mL variant to PATAFA for the duration of their training at Vermosa.

As advocates of environmental sustainability, MWTS will also be working together with PATAFA on a program called “Toka ng PATAFA”.  This program is an advocacy on environmental stewardship and responsible consumerism that helps promote the value of waste segregation through the recovery of used PET bottles.  This is an initiative to be spearheaded by our athletes as champions for health and wellness, as well as, staunch partners for the environment.

Ayala will provide financial support to facilitate and strengthen PATAFA’s recruitment and training programs.

“Ayala’s support will help the athletes train better, perform better and hopefully bring more medals and recognition for the country,” said PATAFA President Philip Juico.

The eagerness to help improve the skills and international ranking of our national athletes has spurred the Ayala Group to do its part in helping Filipino athletes achieve excellence in the their respective sports and succeed in various international competitions.
