Start your fitness journey at Fitness Revolution!

Invite your friends and head on to the ABS-CBN Vertis Tent at Ayala Malls Vertis North, Quezon City on November 16, 17 and 18 to have a weekend of fun and excitement at Fitness Revolution Health & Wellness Expo.

Fitness Revolution is a gathering of the entire fitness community led by our country’s top gyms such as Fitness First, Anytime Fitness, etc. These gyms will be facilitating group classes to the public for free during the 3-day expo. On top of that, they will also be handing out vouchers and amazing deals on club memberships.

“The fitness industry is truly tight and competitive. With that said, my team and I created Fitness Revolution to foster camaraderie and support with the end goal of promoting the concept of “health and fitness as an investment” rather than expense,” said Nesh Zamora, creator of Fitness Revolution.

It will be an interactive weekend filled with free activities to highlight and promote various classes offered by our participating gyms.  There are lots of activities to choose from such as zumba, cage fitness, HIIT, parkour fitness, belly dance, pound rockout workout, body combat, women’s self defense, circuit training, and many more.

Fitness Revolution will also be the host of major activities such as Archery Attack, indoor obstacle course, and workshops on striking protocol, poi, pole and aerial arts.

Aside from achieving your health goals in one weekend, you also get to shop for loved ones there if you’re looking to avoid the holiday rush,” added Zamora.

They accept made to order designs and personalized jewelry for all occasions made from plain yellow gold, white gold, and platinum jewelry as well as pieces with various sizes of diamonds, colored stones, and south sea pearls. They also provide lifetime cleaning, repair, and appraisal services.

Last Oct. 18, Aurum launched a new product line of handcrafted engagement and wedding rings designed with elegance and style, known as BT Collection.

BT (Bridal Trousseau) Collection is the brainchild of cousins Bianca Prieto Santos and Tricie Legarda. Bianca has been designing and selling fashion jewelry for a decade, while Tricie has worked in fashion and fine jewelry retail companies for several years.

BT Collection was created to be able to offer a wide selection of quality wedding rings at reasonable prices. They take pride in knowing that their wedding rings are at par with the bigger jewelry brands, yet are offered at an extremely competitive price.

BT Collection offers simple wedding bands in traditional 14k and 18k gold metals, to diamond anniversary and eternity bands.
They have an offering of classic and modern styles to suit every taste. Rings are available in the stores ready-made or custom-made to specification and size of the customer.

After almost a year after launching the wedding rings line, BT Collection is proud to add engagement rings to their product offering. " It was a natural progression to venture into engagement rings, as we have met many potential customers who asked for this," says Tricie.

BT Collection is collaborating with young local designers to create limited edition styles to add to their existing lineup.
BT Collection rings are available at 4 store locations :

Aurum, Glorietta 4 Level 2

HIV awareness must be made more understandable for young adults

Durex Philippines recently launched its Always Come Prepared campaign that aims create HIV awareness and help prevent it. Key organizations--UNAIDS, Love Yourself, and advocates from the medical field, and Boys Night Out (BNO), joined hands with Durex on its mission to curb HIV in the country. (L-R) BNO's Slick Rick, Reckitt Benckiser Read for regulatory Atty. Ricky Salvador, Sex Therapist Dr. Rica Cruz, UNAIDS Country Director for the Philippines Dr. Louie Ocampo, Reckitt Benckiser General Manager Chris Ritchie, Infectious Diseases Expert Dr. Marion Kwek, Love Yourself and Safe Spaces advocate Losif Cadelina, and BNO's Toni Tony and Sam YG.

Only 15 percent of young adults aged 15 to 24 years old have knowledge about HIV prevention, a UNAIDS Philippines study showed. The lack of an extensive sex education in the curriculum is seen as a contributing factor—directly or indirectly—to the country’s high HIV growth rate.

Discussions on the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV have always been done in extremes – either it is too technical and clinical or it is peppered with myths and falsehoods – creating a large disconnect with young adults, the audience who matter the most.

“We believe that education is the best way to prevent HIV, especially among the young adults. If they are equipped with the right knowledge about HIV and its potential risks to their health, we believe that they stand a chance in protecting themselves against the chronic disease,” said (Karol Canlas) Durex Philippines (Brand Manager).

UNAIDS Country Director for the Philippines Dr. Louie Ocampo shares that if the current trend of reported new HIV cases in the country, we are seeing tripling of numbers at about "265,000 cases by the end of 2028-2029."

In September, Durex Philippines took the playful and quirky approach to bringing HIV awareness to mind with the launch of its “Always Come Prepared” campaign. Led by the radio trio of Sam YG, Tony Toni, and Slick Rick, the campaign aims to make the conversation on the threats and dangers of the disease lighter and easier to understand for the general public. 

To pique the interests of young adults on the campaign, Durex also presented a unique visual of a toy soldier using the condom as a parachute.

“Their openness and tongue-in-cheek manner of talking about sex-related issues and concerns, particularly HIV, is a good way for us to reach the younger audience. Medical experts have long talked about the dangers of HIV, but why is it still rising in the Philippines? The message must have been lost somewhere,” said (Chrisel Segundo, Category Manager – Relief and Wellness).

Condoms are still the only known effective method of preventing the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. With its latest campaign, Durex Philippines aims to raise awareness and encourage the public to take active precautionary measures against HIV.
