Fitness First Branches Tour (Part Three)

Weight loss is still my number one priority even if I am here in Singapore. As of weighing, I have lost 4.5kg in 15 days of stay here. Yes, I am still working out here in Fitness First Singapore. But first, I will give my third notes on my Fitness First branches tour in the Philipines. I have visited a total of 15 branches in the Philippines! Whew! Such an achievement for me. Maybe the next title for my tour would be "Fitness First Branches Tour - goes International" hehehehe... Here's the list of the last 5 branches I have visited in the Philippines:


1. SM Mall of Asia - I visited this branch when I had this MoA field trip with my former officemates. The environment inside the gym was quite nice but I just didn't like the airconditioning state of the place. Parang masyadong malamig, konti lang ipinawis ko. But then it was my first time to see the electronic locker room, it will make you feel that your personal belongings are secured and safe. As far as I remember, the second floor was quite big and the free weights area has a nice view.


2. SM Megamall - On my first visit here, the staff told me that it was a dry run day only so the treadmills were not yet working. Their locker room is also in electronic form. The entire area is very clean maybe because this branch is the newest. It has three workout/exercise rooms such as group exercise (which is quite big), the cycling studio and the mind and body room. The equipments were not that complete and it has only few abs tools. Maybe today, there are more equipments now since the area is really wide. My sister is a pioneer member on this branch.


3. SM Southmall - The architectural design of this branch is exactly the same of the Cebu and Robinson's Manila branches. The original state of the area was a cinema and was converted to a huge and very wide area of fitness center. The area is really big with balcony and orchestra segment. There were many cardio equipments and I loved it instantly. I just didn't like the free weights area.


4. Alabang - I visited this branch on the same day I visited SM Southmall. I was with Harold, Ryan and Topher (Jeph was inside the BodyCare, nagpapamasahe). This branch stood on it's own building and the body care is separated from the center proper. The free weights area is wide but they have only few abs equipments. The unit for Fruit Magic is so small compared to the other branches. The locker room seems quite nice and clean.


5. Metro East - I loved the cardio area, daming treadmills! The equipments were properly arranged. On the other hand, I didn't like the shower area specially the sauna bath, parang ang liit. The reception is very accomodating, the waiting area is also a genuine space. I saw an instructor that was previously assigned in Makati branch. The other trainors are very helpful and attentive for some questions and queries.
