Rexona Celebrates Fitness through First Ever RXN FITFEST…

For several years of organizing one of the coolest and jam-pack running event that fuses fitness and music is the Rexona Run. This year, Rexona takes the fitness event on another level, by bringing the fitness community the first ever Fitness Festival.

Rexona Fitness Festival or RXN FitFest, is an all-day fitness workout that involves, Circuit Training, Yoga Cardio, and Body Jam. These three work-outs will be facilitated by Rexona’s fitness gym partners namely; 360 Fitness (for Circuit Training), Plana Forma (for Yoga Cardio), and Fitness First (for Body Jam).

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a sneak peak of what RXN FitFest will in store for all the fitness enthusiasts on November 14. The 360 Fitness, one of the gym partners that will facilitate Circuit Training gave me and several media and fitness bloggers a short session of Circuit workouts. The session lasted for an hour and it involves moderate intense workout. But for some of us who were first timers in in this type of training, the workout was already pretty intense.

The circuit training session was done in pairs, and each partner pushes the other for greater impact. One can also encourages the other partner if one is slowing down or getting tired. It motivates one to match the fitness level of the other, by increasing one physical limits. Circuit Training is a radical fitness workout that involves high intensity exercises with the use of non-conventional weights, such as high density ball, rope, sand bags, etc.

The exercises targets special muscle groups and cardio vascular system that allows the body to burn calories and fats much faster in a short period of time, compared to conventional weight training or aerobics. The Circuit Training is just one of the three fitness events of RXN FITFEST, which I’m sure, the intensity will be quite high. It is a good cross-training for runners who wish to improve other muscle groups that will help prevent getting injured. For me, I believe it is a good way to strengthen other body parts, since running involves a constant forward motion and other muscle groups that don’t support the running activity tends to be resting.

Of course, there are other disciplines that can be a good form of cross-training like bicycle riding or swimming, but the circuit training can target muscle groups biking and swimming cannot address because of the variety of movements the training offers. Other cross training discipline is the Body Jam which is a series of fast aerobic movements integrated with an up-beat music. Now this is something that a lot of people can look forward to at RXN FITFEST on November 14 Hall 1 of SMX Convention Center at SM Mall of Asia.
