Together with fellow bloggers, I was invited last week by Fitness First Platinum RCBC Plaza to try their Signature Programs. As the name implies, these programs were designed by Fitness First themselves and are new additions to the already wide selection of programs that Fitness First already offer. Read on for the preview.
Our teaser session started with Pro Cycling™ conducted by Chance Vega. This is a set of three 30 minute group cycling class themed around professional track cycling events, but in our case we just had a much shorter “sampler.”
We may only had the sampler, but it’s hardly a walk in the park. That few minutes was enough for my sweat to drip all the way to the floor! For a person like me who does not bike, a full session would be a challenge, but that’s the point right? The bike resistance could be adjusted to suit your skill level so even novices like me could join.
Just as we were catching our bread and thinking “we survived!” another challenge awaited us—Freestyle™ Group Training lead by Kjeld Leal. It is also a 30-minute class and include three format sections: a set of mobilisers to warm up the muscles, the main work out, and the grand finale finisher—a two minute continuous work out.

We were really wasted after this teaser session, but it was so fun! What more if it were the real deal? The Pro Cycling™ classes is great for those who want to “train with the pros” and improve their cycling skills while the Freestyle™ Group Training is great for those who needed that extra motivation to push themselves further and those that are intimidated my traditional gym equipment. These new Signature Programs by Fitness First gives you more ways to burn those calories!
I would like to thank Ms. Connie Fortich, Fitness First Platinum RCBC Plaza Club General Manager, for letting us enjoy these new programs! Thanks to Rikki “Cheapanggang Diva” as well for the photos!
