"…i am not a religious man… but my body is my temple… the pavement is my church… every step, a grace from God… every breath, a silent prayer … every distance, a holy blessing… every run, a fervent worship…" ;-P

We were up too early on a Sunday morning, excited to run Nickelodeon’s Slime Cup Run 2016. After sending off a cousin to the airport, we headed straight to SM Mall Of Asia.

2016-05-29 04.57.09

But first a quick detour. Paige knows how to spot nice cars and she just had to check out this yellow 2001 Toyota Celica  in the airport parking lot.

2016-05-29 04.32.35

We arrived so early the organizers were still finishing the setup as we picked up our race kits.

2016-05-29 04.32.30

We spotted drums of slime being mixed right beside this tunnel. We can’t wait to pass through after we cross the finish slime! But first a quick nap as the gun start is still an hour and a half away.

2016-05-29 05.38.42

We were up as the sun was rising and Paige was ready to go posing beside her Tito’s Ford Everest.

2016-05-29 05.47.39

Just before the race started we were treated to a quick warm-up by no other than Spongebob and Patrick!

2016-05-29 05.50.22

This will be our fifth 3KM race together and we’re always raring to go!

2016-05-29 06.08.49

Less than a kilometer in and we’re faced by the first obstacle, the Ninjas!


Paige went through the tire hop easy. Hardly a challenge for this girl!


Halfway through the race and Paige is still going strong!

2016-05-29 06.35.06

On our way back Paige posed with the Ninjas. We skipped the third obstacle because they closed it. No big deal, she wants to get slimed already anyway.


And so she did! Paige always wondered how it felt to get slimed. Mission accomplished!

2016-05-29 06.47.10

Another 3K in the bag plus a slime shower! Congratulations, Paige!


Of course the fun didn’t stop at the race itself. We went and played the games at the activity area. First stop the Snail Race.

2016-05-29 07.06.50

Next up, Sky paper plane making and flying. After designing her paper plane…


…she flew it through the hoops to get a prize.


Ever the big fan of the ball pit, of course Paige had to slide and hop and crawl her way in!

2016-05-29 08.02.25

On our way home we spotted a supercar trailing us. We took turns guessing what it was. It’s a Lamborghini Huracan!

2016-05-29 08.23.07

After a quick breakfast on the go, our little runner had to nap after a tiresome but fun morning.

We would like to thank Que and Jinoe Gavan for accommodating us in the race, Leadpack Events for a fun, family-oriented event and Nickolodeon for the slime, haha!

This was a cool way for kids to end the summer. Congratulations everyone!

“When a person is strong, everything becomes easy.”

Alpha Strength believes in this so much they put up a gym designed not only to find your inner strength but to optimize and maximize it, apart from making you fitter and healthier.

Whether you go to the gym or not, we can all agree that our lives can be better if we can go through daily routines with ease, be it walking a few blocks to work, carrying a child or simply picking up keys from the floor. Do you know your body is designed to take on more than these challenges? What makes them difficult for most people are the conveniences that modern living provide.

2016-05-28 16.11.01

At the Alpha Strength gym, they aim to take you out of your sedentary lifestyle, build into you physical and mental strength through the use of tools other than barbells.

There are three programs: Be Alpha, Alpha 365 and Alpha Mode.

2016-05-28 14.52.07

Be Alpha takes you where you are right now and aims to fix movement patterns caused by a sedentary lifestyle or incorrect forms of working out. It takes your current health and capacity into consideration, provides you a work out that addresses your limitations then eventually increases the intensity of your workout as you progress.

2016-05-28 15.36.55-2

Alpha 365 has a simple goal in mind: make your body adapt to stress. The only way for your body and mind to get better is to take it out of the routine of daily life, however physically active you are and introduce stress.

2016-05-28 15.37.48

It works in two ways:

  • Making the body adapt through progressive overloading within each mesocycle (a specific timeframe of training alloted for a particular goal).
  • Conditioning training using different methods help you adapt in the three energy systems of the body’s functions: glycolytic (short bursts of energy), phosphagen (short-medium bursts of energy) and oxidative (long usage of energy).
  • 2016-05-28 15.01.27

Alpha 365 is about holistic fitness, aimed at pushing you to top performance level.

2016-05-28 16.13.18

Alpha Mode is about maximizing strength. This is a by-appointment class for the competitive set, mainly athletes looking to improve their performance in preparation for a competition or a race.

2016-05-28 14.37.44

“Becoming stronger is not easy; it will test you, it will disappoint, and just like life, it is not a walk in the park. That’s why getting stronger is worth it, and that’s what we are; we make people stronger. In the four corners of Alpha  Strength, we will prepare you for whatever life will throw at you. What we want is the strongest version of yourself.”Aaron Dela Cruz, Head  Coach, ALPHA STRENGTH  and ALPHA STRIKE.

2016-05-28 16.41.29

ALPHA STRENGTH is located at the ground floor of SPARTA Philippinrs, 16 Pioneer St., Mandaluyong City.

Performance footwear, sports gear and apparel innovator Under Armour (UA) continues to expand its reach in the Philippines with the opening of a brand house in Cebu City on May 22.

The first in southern Philippines the 164 square-meter UA brand house is conveniently located on the ground level of Ayala Center Cebu. This ups the number of exclusive UA outlets in the Philippines to four, further underscoring the importance of the country as a growth area for the Baltimore-headquartered firm. Customers can browse and purchase a range of innovative, quality merchandise the company has been famous for since its inception 20 years ago.


“We are extremely grateful for, and humbled by, the incredibly warm reception from our Filipino customers. We believe that UA’s success is a direct offshoot of the worldwide trend towards an active lifestyle, and how the brand values reflected in our products have successfully promoted such,” said Triple Pte. Ltd. CEO Michael Binger. The company holds the exclusive distribution rights for UA across Southeast Asia. “During his visit to the Philippines, UA founder, chairman, CEO Kevin Plank had described Asia Pacific as one of the linchpins for truly defining UA as a global brand. Indeed, our upward business trajectory here exemplifies that, and increasing our presence should further enable it,” he added.


Highlighting the opening of UA’s new brand house is the Armour Challenge – open to male and female participants 18 years old and above on a first-come-first-served basis. The competition, to be held at the Ayala Center Cebu’s Activity Center, consists of three physical challenges: mountain climbers, squats, and burpees. The fastest to complete the exercises will win a UA tank or sleeveless top and a discount coupon. All other participants automatically receive discount coupons as well. Famous husband-and-wife fitness coaches and UA brand ambassadors Jim and Toni Saret will be on hand to give valuable fitness and and training advice to participants and the general public. A former national athlete, Jim was educated here and in the US on sports science and is the founder and training director of APEX (Athletic Performance Enhancement) Sports Training, Inc. Like Toni, he was one of the trainers in the Biggest Loser Philippines television program. The two presently host MetaBEATS, a fitness show on the Lifestyle Channel.

Interested participants can send their full name and mobile number to ua.instoremarketing@benchtm.com. Slots are limited. More details will be e-mailed to registrants.

Under Armour’s other brand houses are located at BGC, Megamall and UP Town Center. Also available in multi-branded sports houses, such as Tobys, OV, Planet Sports, Rustan’s and major stores in key cities. Visit www.underarmour.com.ph for more information.
