While working out definitely requires a certain level of discipline, a gym filled with chiseled bodies can be intimidating to a beginner. But who said fitness had to be so serious all the time? Celebrity Fitness, a comprehensive, lifestyle-based fitness chain from Indonesia, wants to prove to members that each session can feel like a party.
“We’re very excited to officially open the first Celebrity Fitness club in Manila. The city is bustling with so many fitness and wellness advocates so it was the perfect time to bring in a refreshing option for fun loving, dynamic fitness buffs,” says Mark Ellis, Country Manager.
Having recently opened in One Bonifacio High Street Mall in BGC, we decided to give two of Celebrity Fitness’ most popular workouts a go. First up was Saltar–literally translating to “jump” in Portugese–a 60-minute trampoline workout. Each of us were provided our own mini trampoline, where we were to mimic the movements of the instructor in front of us in. This sounds simple enough, I told myself, but I couldn’t be more wrong. The choreographed moves varied in speed and intensity, working on the different muscles of our body. If you want a cardio blast workout, then Saltar is perfect for you.
Afterwards, we tried out Playground, which is a 30-minute group workout conducted on the gym floor that is similar to circuit training. What’s great about this workout is that it is is perfect for anyone, as each station, from pull ups to throwing a medicine ball, can be adjusted to your fitness level.
At the end of both workouts, my colleagues and I were beat, but also happy and motivated to challenge our bodies even more the next time. For those of you who have specific fitness goals, Celebrity Fitness also offers an array of personal training programs with their team of StarMakers.
Upon entering the gym, you can instantly tell that Celebrity Fitness’ refreshing approach to working out with appeal to many. And what better time to start working out than during the holiday season?
Celebrity Fitness is located at the 2nd floor of One Bonifacio High Street Mall, 5th Avenue, BGC. Follow them on Instagram at @celebrityfitnessph.
