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.”

Quench the 5 Most Common Signs of Dehydration with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water

Summer season is upon us! This is the time to bask under the glorious rays of the sun and have fun- sunbathe at the beach, engage in outdoor sports, or just simply enjoy the balmy weather without the fear of rain disrupting our activities. 
However, with temperatures soaring during these sweltering summer months, we all need to be aware when our bodies are trying to tell us we need a good dose of rehydration. Water comprises 70% of our bodies, and once this level decreases by even a small percentage, we become dehydrated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of dehydration to watch out for: 

1. Increased thirst 

Thirst is the body’s most automatic indicator of dehydration.  It is the first reminder that we need to restore fluid balance for our bodies to function properly 

2. Headaches and dizziness 

When we are dehydrated, the water content in our body drops and results in a decreased flow of oxygen to the brain. This triggers the pain receptors surrounding our brains, inducing nagging migraines and feelings of dizziness. 

3. Decreased urination

Maintaining a healthy fluid balance is imperative in keeping our biological functions running smoothly. When we are dehydrated, the kidneys try to conserve water by concentrating urine, so when urine is appears in a darker yellow shade, it means that the body’s fluid balance has been compromised. 
4. Dry skin

Our skin’s appearance and elasticity is very much affected by our fluid balance. When we are dehydrated, fluids pull away from our skin and redirect to other major organs in the body to preserve proper biological functions.
5. Sluggishness and fatigue

Dehydration can definitely affect your body’s endurance levels throughout the day, causing feelings of tiredness and decreased alertness. This can impair concentration and cause a disruption with daily and work activities.

The most effective way to revert the effects of dehydration and heat exhaustion is by increasing fluid intake, and water is definitely the most effective key to restoring our body’s all-important fluid balance. Our bodies also lose important nutrients when we are dehydrated, so drinking water high in natural minerals and nutrients is also important in keeping our biological functions running in tiptop condition.

 Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water is complete with a high mineral profile to slake your thirst and provide your body with the nutrients it needs while giving you a deep sense of well-being apparent from your first sip. Whether at work, after sport or simply in between – Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water is the perfect companion to survive the scorching heat. 

                    

Drinking this when I want to perk up my taste buds without eliminating minerals that are essential for my body.

Originating from the depths of Germany’s Volcanic Eifel region, Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water has a unique nutritional balance of calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate, which cannot be found in regular drinking water. It provides the body with valuable minerals and trace elements that the body cannot generate on its own.  One liter of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water satisfies 1/3 of the daily calcium requirement and more than a quarter of the magnesium requirement that supports your energy metabolism and can help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Its refreshing taste profile is amped up by its delightful fizzy mouthfeel, quenching your thirst deeply from the first sip to the last. Gerolsteiner’s natural sparkling fizz comes from its concentration of bicarbonates and is not artificially carbonated like soda. This aids the body’s digestive functions without the added calories, sugar and chemicals. 

This summer, have a fizzy pick-me-up thirst quencher. Keep yourself safe from dehydration and maintain your body’s vitality—refresh and rejuvenate with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water!
