Who knew Yoga could be so fun and engaging? Plana Forma Senior Instructor Celine Encarnacion looked more like a rock star on stage than a typical trainer. Hundreds of participants followed her lead as music accompanied yoga movements with a more ‘cardio’ bent. Everyone enjoyed the stretching movements of yoga at a higher more exciting pace.

Gretchen Ho of GAMEDAY Weekend was one of many celebrities who were there to participate, “It was a great test of my flexibility. I thoroughly enjoyed the cardio work out. I was not used to the yoga portion. But its just a matter of knowing what you enjoy, what you like doing. That’s what today is all about. We’re going to experience yoga, cardio, barre, Body jam and Circuit Training. So everyone out there its time to discover what you enjoy and exercise is all about that.”

Plana Forma is one of the leading studious that takes advantage of combining different programs to create the ideal work out. They have branches in the Fort, QC, Makati and even Davao. Director for Training Van Manalo explains, “Plana Forma is a combination of dance, pilates and yoga. We use yoga for stretches, the pilates is for the ab part. Dance because we follow the beat of the music.”

The official Plana Forma website describes the results or goal of their program: Defined and toned muscles a long and lean body are just the visible results you will soon discover, but the benefits of Plana FORMA go much, much deeper. You will experience an increase in lung capacity, metabolic rate and bone density. It can also decrease back pains, stress levels and sluggishness; all of which will lend you that glow of health, which -let’s face it- is the real essence of sexy.

Special RXN Program 

The program was specifically designed for the RXN Fit Fest, “We’ve had Ashtanga offering in our studio but was not as popular. So we had a compromise. Its not as pure yoga but we still have the signature heat of forma. Rexona requested for cardio yoga. So we put a lot of movement into the pose, more flow. We’re very pleased to be part of RXN Fit Fest.”

The program was also designed to cater to a wider group from beginners to advance participants, “The pure Plana Forma is super hot and super extreme burn. This one is lighter than that. The stretches in our Plana Forma class are really quick. But this one you linger. You stay there 10 or 20 seconds.”

There’s a specific purpose to the selection of music according to Vic Manalo, “We use ambient music so people can follow a certain beat. If you choose to have music with higher BPM (beats per minute) your heart rate is a little higher. We choose songs with higher bpms to increase the heart rate from the beginning of the work out. Then slower, calming music is used to cool down in the end. You choose a song with that bpm. There’s a range it can fall into.”

Strength and Trimming down

The difference of Plana Forma results is more on trimming down fat and increasing strength rather than just losing weight, “In Plana Forma we don’t lose weight. We lose the inches. You trim down. We have lots of ladies who are actually asking. They drop down one or two dress sizes but the weight doesn’t change. So I tell them your strength is based on muscles. If you do forma you shrink because the fat muscles shrink but you get stronger. If you want to lose weight then you have to lose protein. So that’s less strength.”

More men have also been joining Plana Forma as an alternative to more injury prone sports or workouts, “I’ve heard that there are injuries from other harder exercises. Maybe they want to try something else less stressful in the joints. Since its not pure yoga it may not have the requirement of being too flexible or supple right away. It’s a good compromise.”

Another reason more men have been attracted is the increased strength and toning results due to the Plana Forma program, “There’s one guy who used to go to the gym all the time. Then he tried Plana Forma for 2 months. Then he started to get the ‘V’ shape he wanted. He had the tone the definition and just enough bulk. But not the bulk you get when you power lift.’

The RXN FIT FEST for him is heaven sent for their own brand of Barre Yoga, “We were pleasantly surprised at the huge crowd we got. We hesitated in joining initially because there are other more specialized yoga studios. Then again we are the only one able to combine yoga with pilates, cardio work outs and put them together in the best way.”

That’s what fitness craze BODY JAM banks on to help you be fit and lose calories. It gives you the best of the club scene without the cigarette smoke, alcohol or drugs.

Fitness First instructor Andre Sunga was very impressed with RXN Fit fest, “Its very special because not all people know about Body Jam. We have it as a program in Fitness First. This is the only event that has introduced it to the public. Hopefully more people will be interested to get to know it and love it. This used to be exclusive for Fitness First. They were the pioneers here in featuring Body Jam. It’s still staying strong. It progresses; it used to be easy music now it’s hard core mostly EDM (Electronic Dance music). More EDM than the single tracks we have.”

Andre defines the program this way, “Body Jam is a combination of different genres of dances. It includes Latin, Jazz, hip hop, everything you could think about on modern music. It incorporates the workout within it. The core of the program is to get loose in the sensation of dancing. That’s the main thing with body jam. As long as it’s dancing and sweating a lot.”

There were a lot of male participants, easily half along with the pretty women. Andre shared, “I just got into body jam in 2010. I fell in love with it. It’s not like the old typical aerobics. It’s a hip-hop combination and it exhausts you. That’s why I fell in love with the program.”

It is even more mentally engaging than say running or even basketball, “Its better, it includes your mind. You’re working all the time it’s a fast pace. But you do it one at a time a slow combination of dances. It incorporates everything in the end. At the end you just break out and lose yourself. We teach you to dance but the program is very beneficial for the health.”

No.3 A dance background is not necessary to do BODY JAM. It is a no-pressure dance class. — From 10 things to Expect In Your First Body Jam Class

The best place for Body Jam is still Fitness First, “It’s the most established. The foundation is stronger. Most of the programs originated in Fitness First. That’s the main core of Body Jam, even if its offered in other clubs its more solid there.” Andre believes RXN Fit Fest will gain even more participants next year, “I think it will grow to a strong annual thing. This is the first run and its pretty good.”
