The month of July is when fitness enthusiasts celebrate wellness month. As many people are now gearing towards healthy living, Robinsons Supermarket is likewise relentless in supporting it.

The festivity also coincided with the ongoing fitness campaign by Fit Filipino Movement headed by coaches Jim and Toni Saret – The FitFil National Weight loss Challenge. As this fitness campaign batters in full-swing, Robinsons Supermarket encourages everyone to register,  accept the challenge, commit to pledge and lose pounds of unwanted fats, and become part of the national target of 1 million pounds in six months.

One highlight of the fitness festival that was held at the activity center of Eastwood, is the Ninja Academy’s parkour course. This type of fitness activity does not only builds physical strength but also improves agility, flexibility, and endurance. For those who want to try a radical type of workout, the parkour courses is one alternative that allows everyone to try a whole new way of losing weight. Personally, parkour is a skill that piques my interest. It’s quite scary and the same time exciting. I guess it would be another outdoor sport that I need to put in my bucket list this year.

A "Ninja Warrior" in the making? :)
For now, shedding a few pounds is a priority every FitFil pledger needs to focus on, that is why I have come up with a physical regimen that is a combination of running, metafit, and jumping rope. The focus of the FitFil campaign is to lose as many pounds of unwanted fats as much as we can. That is why Coaches Jim and Toni Saret are relentlessly going around the whole country to teach people an effective way to lose weight through the Metafit exercises. In just four minutes, one can burn as much as 600 calories throughout the day.

Wall Climbing is another good way to lose weight...
I was introduced to this exercise by no less than coach Jim himself and I can attest that it’s really effective. Later on, I got learn other fat burning exercises as well that I incorporated into my metafit workout. Watch this video demo of one complete circuit of Jump Rope and metafit, which is a high intensity workout.

For those who registered at FitFil and committed to shed those unwanted fats, this circuit exercise is for you. The Calisthenic exercises are simple but the jump rope is a little bit tricky. Tripping is normal for those who are just starting to learn but later on, as you grow stronger, consistency will follow soon. Try to learn the “bounce” style first before learning other styles of jumping rope. As for me, I was able to learn the jump rope in two weeks of regular jumping rope, doing it as often as four to five times a week.
