T’was a day of fun and excitement as fitness enthusiasts flocked for the Live to Move Tour, a series of health and wellness-themed pocket events around Metro Manila. FWD Life recently launched this wellness movement aptly called Live to Move–premised on the idea that attaining better health is key in living life to the fullest.
To encourage more Filipinos to start living a healthy lifestyle, FWD Life is showing us how we can be healthier and fitter so we can actively pursue our passions and ultimately, live the life we have always dreamed of. At the heart of this campaign is the FWD Motion, a speciallly designed four-minute metabolic fitness (MetaFit) workout which has a health benefit equivalent of up to one-hour exercise. Four minutes workout equivalent to one hour! That’s genius! Whoever developed this kind of belly fat burning exercise is a total genius! (Do I really have to specify my problem area? lol) Just letting that sink into my mind excites me already!
FWD Motion is a simple regimen. It’s four primary steps – jump, squat, push-up and lunge can easily be integrated into our daily activities and can be done anywhere. So for those putting off going to the gym or attending their workout class, this exercise routine will get you moving. It’s for anyone who wants to make a healthier lifestyle choice because its simple, short and effective. Again I say genius because the four primary steps easily encourage people to work out regardless if they are novice, intermediate or advanced fitness enthusiasts.
Grateful for these developers, celebrity fitness coaches Jim and Toni Saret (“The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Season 2”, “Fit Filipino Movement”), who are also the campaign collaborators, it is scientifically proven to make an individual lose as much as 600 calories, depending on the intensity of execution and number of repetitions. I attended the leg in Bonifacio High Street and I burned 2,000 calories!
Coaches Jim and Toni Saret are also healthy lifestyle ambassadors of the Philippine Heart Association (PHA), the official advocacy partner of Live to Move. FWD Life supports PHA’s 52100 advocacy, a simple guide to remind people of the essentials of good health, with each number representing a daily target: 5 servings of fruits and vegetables, 2 hours maximum recreational screen time, 1 hour of moderate activity, 0 sugared drinks and 0 smoking/secondhand smoke.
