FILA and Athletes in Action Run for School Rooms

Eager to make a change?  This may just be the moment you've been waiting for to actually get in  action! 

Here is how you can participate in a great cause: 

Heeding to the call of the times, FILA and Athletes in Action (AIA) join forces to bring the biggest advocacy run to help raise funds for the rehabilitation of classrooms in Iligan city, which were badly hit by Typhoon Sendong back in 2011.

With 15,000 runners who have signed up to date, the Schools Run for School Rooms (SRSR) marathon will be gathering student-runners from major colleges and universities, to bring a glimmer of hope to Iligan city, where eager students have to do with makeshift classrooms as the school year starts.

Since 1911, FILA traces its roots from Biella, a province set at the foot of the Italian Alps. Unbeknownst to many, this small town brand is big on corporate social responsibility. At the recently concluded 2012 FILA Polo Cup, project “500 for 500” was launched by FILA President Butch Albert to help Typhoon Sendong victims once again by donating 500 pesos to 500 families for every purchase of Skele-Toes.

Skele-Toes is FILA’s latest line of revolutionary active footwear that is fast raising many eyebrows and causing the curious to utter#whattheheckisthat? For us at FILA, it’s simply a shoe that changes the game. Rock at the gym or at the party, Skele-Toes is just about the only shoe that fits – and Tim, Georgina, and Borgy all agree!

Not ready to rock the boat just yet? Then you’ll love FILA’s newest line of running shoes, Swerve and Flow. FILA Swerve boasts of a Dynamic Landing System through a lightweight foam at the midsole and V3 techonology inserts at the heel. This gives you the proper support that you need in every step, without compromising style and design.

FILA Flow is perfect for the outdoor dweller with its heavy duty outsole, making every shock and bump a breeze. This one will surely go with you to countless victories and finishes.
Whether you prefer a classic or a rocking pair of rubbershoes, it’s high time to give your tiresome trainers a break and take the Skele-Toes, Swerve, or Flow out for a spin. With your purchase of a pair of Skele-Toes and participation at the SRSR marathon, it’s definitely more fun to help with FILA!

Tickets and registration forms are available at SM Ticketnet outlets (  Singlets and race bibs can be claimed at Fila Stores in Metro Manila.

Belo and Beyond Yoga: On Being Sexy and Staying Sexy


Famous BFFs Georgina Wilson and Raymond Gutierrez are constantly in the limelight, whether on television, on the red carpet or in a star-studded fashion event. Being regulars in style blogs, both know the need to look their best at any angle— perfect, slim and streamlined. Even with constant diet and exercise, both friends needed help to get rid of the stubborn fat that just wouldn’t disappear. Fortunately, Sexy Solutions, a subsidiary of the Belo Medical Group, was and continues to be the perfect answer.

Sexy Solutions provides the solutions one needs to achieve a sexy body all under one roof. That includes the latest machines that melt the fat, tighten the skin and tone the muscles, as well as fitness and nutritional experts that can guide the patient on how to achieve the results in the healthiest and most convenient way possible.

There are five different Sexy Solutions procedures that target fat cells using heat, ultrasound waves, and mechanical pressure:

1 -- BURST THE FAT with Lipo Cavitation.
Lipo Cavitation breaks down stubborn fat cells in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, upper and lower back by delivering sound waves using low frequency ultrasound causing the fat cells to burst and the fat to seep out, making it easier to flush out through the lymphatic system.

2 -- TIGHTEN THE SKIN with Multi Firm
Multi Firm uses radio frequency heat to improve the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. As a result of this, the body becomes reshaped and tightened.

3 -- TONE THE MUSCLE with Body Sculpt
Energy pulses are sent to the muscles to promote contractions similar to exercise, causing a “squeezing” effect that is necessary for the acceleration of liquid fat drainage. It also improves blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, and fat metabolism.
Treatments 1, 2 and 3 complement each other. For maximum results, we recommend to do these three treatments in one session.

TiteFx is the newest and most innovative non-invasive body contouring and fat-destroying machine. It sends High Voltage Pulses that result in electroporation causing permanent destruction of fat cells. TiteFX also emits radio frequency that provides precise optimal heating of the skin
for tightening and body shaping.5 -- WORK-“OUT” THE FAT with ION MAGNUM
The Ion Magnum is not a muscle stimulator. It is an advanced fitness system that rapidly burns fat and delivers the benefits of an intense, professional workout without the pain, physical exertion, and exhaustion that comes with conventional exercising. The Ion Magnum uses specific, patented micro-current waveforms that mimic brain waves so that the muscle tissue is made to believe that it is performing a muscle-toning workout.

As a complement to the Sexy Solutions services, we believe that maximum results can be achieved with proper nutrition and a fitness routine. Thus, we have put together a dream team that can help you get the body you want:
Nadine Tengco, US Certified Nutritionist and Weight Loss Specialist of the Biggest Loser Philippines, created proprietary diet plans and drinks that complement and further enhance the effect of the treatments by reducing swelling and promoting proper circulation.
Along with Edward Mendez, Sports Science & Nutrition Expert, author of fitness book called “Your Dream Body Come True,” offers consultations and specialized diet plans and exercises that will guide you to achieve a lean and toned physique.

Raymond and Georgina’s Reviews

Asked whether they instantly felt a change after one session, Raymond said, “I already saw results on my first session! In my first session, which lasted less than 2 hours, I lost 4.7 inches from my midsection. Of course, it's up to you how to maintain it. For me, I balanced a proper diet and exercise regimen with regular treatments at Sexy Solutions.”

“Sexy Solutions made the process of losing weight a breeze! The treatments are painless because of the amazing new technology they have. It’s so easy to lose momentum when you’re trying to lose weight. However, the staff really took care of me and encouraged me. I feel like I'm part of this new family and I'll be forever grateful.”

As for Georgina, she stated, “I saw results immediately. Consequently, I became hooked right away! Areas that I had practically given up on were immediately smaller. I actually couldn’t believe the measurements after the first time I tried it because they were so drastic. I went from a 29 inch waist to a 25 inch waist in two months.”

“Sexy Solutions has been a large part of my commitment to fitness. I'm so happy because I feel like I have a partner in losing weight and maintaining my ideal body. It doesn't all happen in the Sexy Solutions clinics, exercising and dieting are integral to the program, but I definitely feel like we’re all working towards the same goal— a body that I am happy with. Sexy Solutions is my secret weapon to getting sexy and most importantly, staying sexy.”

Thai at Silk Relaunch

Located at the Serendra lifestyle mall in Fort Bonifacio, Silk is a restaurant with cozy and chic
interiors. Whether youʼre having a date, a family meal or just having lunch with your friends, it is
the perfect place to leisurely enjoy delicious and mouthwatering Thai food.
Chic Interiors

The Silk menu is made up of traditional Thai cuisine, in which a full meal not only acquaints you
with the various spices and flavors of Asia, it also allows you to enjoy a balance of the four
fundamental taste flavors of Thai cuisine – sweet, spicy, salty and sour.

Start off with the traditional Thai soup of Tom Yum Talay, which is a sour-spicy seafood soup with
hints of galangal, lemon grass and coriander. Try the Silk Appetizer Selection that is a mélange of
the restaurantʼs different appetizers – the bestselling Thai Spring Rolls, Tung Tong or Crispy
Shrimp and Coriander Pastry, Grilled Pork wrapped in Betel Leaf, and the delectable Chicken
Satay served with Thai Curry Sauce.
Spring Rolls

For seafood enthusiasts, try our new Seafood Satay which are marinated skewers of Prawn,
Squid and Snapper fillets that come with a delightful dipping sauce of palm vinegar and various
condiments, and the famous Pomelo and Shrimp Salad, which will surely transport you to the
streets and markets of Thailand.
Seafood Satay

Of course, having a Thai meal will not be complete without a taste of curry. For those who do not
like spicy food, the Green Chicken Curry is perfect for you, although all dishes may be adjusted to
your personal spice level preference. Try the Roast Duck in Red Curry and the tender, stewedfor-
hours Beef Shank in Mussaman Curry.

For the main course, Silk has an extensive set of dishes that offer lots of chicken, beef, seafood
and vegetables. For crab lovers, the Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Black Pepper Sauce is a
must and feast on the new Crab dish as well (cooked in 3 ways – Crab with Egg Curry, Crab with
Black Pepper Sauce and Garlic Crab). For sweet and sour flavor enthusiasts we have also
added a new dish to the menu - Thai Style Sweet and Sour Lapu Lapu.

No need to wonder about Thailandʼs most popular of noodles and rice dishes - Silkʼs Phad Thai
and Bagoong Rice are one of the best in the metro.

For those who love sweet endings – cap off your meal with the Mango Sticky Rice or the housemade
ice creams of Durian, Coconut and Mango.

Last but not least, to fully enjoy your lunch or dinner out, Silk has a pleasant wine selection that
pairs well with the flavors of Thai Food, a full bar service and an extensive list of cocktails which
include Pandan Martinis, Lemongrass Martinis, and Silkʼs own Ginger Zinger. Enjoy Happy Hour
from 6pm-8pm everyday.
