For those who ask if home workouts are as effective as hitting the gym, the answer is a resounding yes! With the right mindset, a strong will and proper equipment, the journey to fitness can be achieved even at the comforts of your home.
Consider these simple tips on how one can exercise regardless of weather or time of day:
Wear workout clothes
Dress the part. Wear the proper exercise attire to get you into the mood and make it easier to move around and exercise.
Keep it simple
Know your goal and choose the proper exercise regimen, whether to maintain your weight or further strengthen the body; best to start slow and simple, with some stretching to prepare the muscles for the workout.
Fitness coach Ghel Lerpido from Chris Sports, the complete sports shop that offers quality fitness products to athletes, sports enthusiasts and exercise buffs, said there’s a big difference between stretching and warming up. “Stretching provides flexibility and prepares the muscles for exercise. Warm-ups, meanwhile, help maintain blood flow so you avoid injuries.”

This Christmas, Repertory Philippines is reviving a classic to remind everyone of the true holiday spirit. Scrooge: A Family Musical will inspire viewers from November 21 to December 14 at the Onstage, Greenbelt 1 in Makati City, capping off Repertory’s 2014 calendar.
“I feel that in this generation, the spirit of Christmas is disappearing. It has become commercialized when we should be celebrating the birth of Christ. The spirit of Christmas, the spirit of giving, loving, and generosity are all embodied in Scrooge more than any other script,” said director Baby Barredo, also Repertory Philippines’ co-founder and artistic director.
The timeless tale A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a staple in the theater scene during the Yuletide season, endearing families with the same message of sharing and forgiveness. Repertory Philippines has brought the story to stage for three times—all box office hits using different adaptations of the story. The fourth staging takes a cue from the book, music, and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.
