Fitness Blender

This husband-and-wife run Youtube channel has over 500 free workouts that range from beginner (low-impact cardio exercises to people with knee issues?) to advanced. You can even download their free customizable online workout calendar (ergo the name, Fitness Blender) to track your progress as you subscribe to Daniel and Kelli’s workouts.


In town and looking to find the best workout for you? Don’t fret. Look to these resources to get you started:

GUAVAPASS and KFit are both “fitness pass” services that allow you to subscribe to their services for a fee. The fee will entitle you to workout at various fitness studios, gyms, sports centers, and in KFit’s case, enroll for spa activities as some spa centers in Metro Manila. Get Fit MNL, on the other hand, is a website that compiles all available information on the growing number of fitness studios that have been opening in the Metro in the past couple of years.

Not in the mood to spend on a membership? Use your mobile. Nike Training Club (NTC) is the official fitness app of Nike. With 100+ workouts, even the option to sync your own Spotify playlist to your chosen workout, it’s a great alternative that won’t break your wallet.
