When life gets busy, draggy, or dull, getting fit seems to be the first activity dropped from anyone’s to-do list. Just as the first month of 2020 ends, the eagerness to be healthier by hitting the gym or any fitness facility also starts to subside—and so, another resolution for the year gets unfulfilled.
But what if you can still achieve your fitness goals while having the support of your own community? Santé Fitness Lab (SFL)—the premier game-changing, one-stop fitness center that offers holistic training programs for south-based communities—makes it even more fun and easier for fitness enthusiasts (and couch potatoes) to achieve their 2020 fitness goals.
Recently, SFL, in partnership with Vermosa Sports Hub, located inside Ayala Land’s Estate in Imus, Cavite, launched the Trail Blazers Run Club, a group founded to engage and encourage the local community to adopt a healthy lifestyle through running.
This new running club has three main objectives: provide an enjoyable, supportive, and positive running atmosphere; provide competitive and participatory events for runners of all abilities; and, conduct events and forums to educate the public about the benefits of running.
What’s more, the Trail Blazers Run Club is under the supervision of two dedicated coaches—Junrox Roque, an ultramarathon and marathon finisher, a competitive triathlete and duathlete, and an avid cyclist; and John Joseph Ogacion, an SFL coach, certified sports nutritionist, and a marathon finisher.
“More than being one of the simplest ways of getting fit, running is also an inexpensive sport. It only requires a pair of shoes and a space where you can run. With this new running club, we want to bring the sport closer to the Cavitenos,” said Ogacion.
According to Ogacion, the Trail Blazers Run Club is, by far, one of the most formal clubs that the SFL and Vermosa have organized. In a launching event held in SFL and the Vermosa Track Oval, last January 16, Ogacion and Roque discussed in details the rules and regulations of the club, which are mostly about the registration procedures, observing proper outfits, schedules, and the programs, tailor-fitted for beginners and seasoned competitors in the running scene.
“Before we start our training sessions, we asked our members to pin down their goals—whether it be 5K, 10K, half, and marathon. As members of the club, we will help them achieve these goals by making sure that they are equipped in joining marathons through our weekly training plans,” said Roque. “All aspiring and competitive runners who want to join the club may visit the SFL, located in Daang Hari Road in Imus, Cavite. The track oval sessions happen on Thursdays at 5:30 PM.”
Aside from the extensive training program, the members of Trail Blazers will get to experience the wide spectrum of services and topnotch facilities both in Santé Fitness Lab and Vermosa for both fitness training and sports development.
“At SFL, we believe that it’s never too late to achieve one’s fitness goals. Our initiatives, like the new Trail Blazers Running Club, are our way of helping them become more fit and healthier,” said Santé Fitness Lab General Manager Clarize Lucindo. “We are inviting all interested runners and athletes to join us, and the Trail Blazers Running Club here in SFL as we promote a more active Cavite.”
Aside from the providing world-class training and facilities for runners, the Santé Fitness Lab is also a one-stop fitness center that offers everything you’ll need to perform at your peak—from Fitness to Sports Performance Training, Performance Testing, Recovery, Physical Therapy Services, as well as Sports Development Programs.
Staying true to its Home of Champions tagline, SFL also boasts of its unique facility set-up for a sports science laboratory. It is also designed for optimal strength and conditioning training to ensure that any fitness enthusiast and athletes of all levels are prepared for the demands and adversities whether in sports or daily life.
