Four Indoor Sports You Can Try This Rainy Season

The rainy season is officially here but your fitness goals do not have to be put on hold. Check out these indoor sports you should try, be it on your own or with your clique.  Indoor rock climbing - You don’t always need sunshine and mountains to go climbing! There are countless indoor rock climbing options in the Metro which are suitable for beginners and experienced climbers. Some are even open for kids as young as 5-years old! Parkour - Want to run, jump, and swing like a true ninja? Join a parkour class and finish an indoor obstacle course as swiftly as you can. The coaches will give you warm-up exercises and teach you the basics first so no need to panic. You can just think of it as a real cool upgrade from the usual outdoor runs you do. Martial Arts - It never hurts to equip yourself and stay safe by acquiring self-defense skills. Plus, you can treat it as a sport or a new means to work out. So imagine getting fit, while getting stronger (and more street-smart). From Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, Arnis, and more—learn martial arts from top-notch training schools near you.  Indoor Cycling or Spinning - Ride a bike without worrying about the weather outside! Spin classes usually last for about an hour. Most studios level up the fitness experience by doing choreographed exercises—all while listening to the curated playlist of the trainer. They also provide full-body workouts during the ride. This is how you make burning fats extra fun and rewarding. But take note: just because you’re free from the smoldering summer heat, doesn’t mean you’re free from pawis, too, especially if you just take a shower. Don’t rely on chamba throughout these activities by using Rexona after every bath. Rexona has MotionSense technology that provides motion-activated protection from sweat and odor for up to 48 hours. Better safe (and sweat-free) no matter the weather—no matter what you do. The rainy season has just begun, but the adventures never have to end!    Shower lang, kulang. Say No to Chamba, Chamba freshness! Get guaranteed sweat and odor protection with Rexona.  Buy Rexona Anti-Stain +  Ice Cool or Rexona Powder Dry in sachet variant  for only Php 8 SRP in stores nationwide.  .....»»

Gray comes to play as Mighty-GFG Philippines stays spotless in 2019 Jones Cup

Jeremiah Gray has been spreading his wings in the 2019 Jones Cup and on Monday inside Changhua Gym in Taiwan, he was in full-fledged flight mode, leading the Mighty Sports-Go for Gold Philippines to a 116-87 whipping of Canada's University of British Columbia. The Filipino-American swingman waxed hot with 25 points built on a 6-of-8 mark from threes to go along with six rebounds and four assists. It was also him who had a third of the Philippines 33-point third quarter that turned a close contest into a blowout win. This more than made up for the fact that a day ago, Gray went scoreless against Japan-B. Renaldo Balkman was right there with him with 22 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and four blocks while Eugene Phelps contributed 22 markers, nine boards, and six dimes of his own as the Filipino side registered yet another rout, their fourth in as many games in the tournament. Up next for them is South Korea on Tuesday. BOX SCORES MIGHTY-GFG PHILIPPINES 116 - Gray 25, Balkman 22, Phelps 20, N'Diaye 15, Williams 9, Yeo 7, Banal 7, Adams 4, Graham 3, Black 2, Wongchuking 2, Brickman 0. UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA 87 - Browne 25, Simon 25, Shepard 14, Cruz-Dumont 8, Rosebush 5, Audu 5, Bourcier 3, Wallack 2, Morrison 0, Familia 0, Clair 0.

Balkman-led Philippines too mighty for Japan in 2019 Jones Cup

Mighty-GFG Philippines is yet to find its match in the 2019 William Jones Cup as it won big for the third game in a row, this one a 94-59 waylaying of Japan, Sunday inside Changhua Gym in Taiwan. Just like their first two games in the tournament, the Filipinos followed the lead of reinforcements Renaldo Balkman and Eugene Phelps, but also got a much-welcome breakout from Filipino-Americans Mikey Williams. Team captain Balkman celebrated his birthday by turning in his strongest showing thus far with 27 points, 12 rebounds, and two blocks while Phelps muscled his way into 19 markers, seven boards, and two steals. Williams then dropped 17 points, his tournament-high, to go along with three rebounds and three steals while Jason Brickman also added eight markers, six boards, and three assists. The Japanese were actually ahead in the earlygoing until Balkman and Phelps joined forces for a 13-1 run that erased a seven-point deficit and erected a 18-13 advantage. The Philippines would never look back all the way to its biggest win of the tournament. Up next on the list for Mighty-GFG Philippines is Canada's University of British Columbia on Monday. BOX SCORES MIGHTY-GFG PHILIPPINES 94 – Balkman 27, Phelps 19, Williams 17, Brickman 8, Moore 8, Adams 6, Black 4, Graham 3, N'Diaye 2, Gray 0, Banal 0.
