I don't really know what is so special about turning 40. My countdown says 13 more days to go. Well, I'm excited that I'm gonna celebrate my birthday again with the family at The Linden Suites. I'm also happy that I am committed to my #FitAtForty fitness goal. I used to play tennis and regularly join zumba classes at Marikina Sports Center until the laziness bug bit me.  It was only when I was invited to the Adidas FitSquad that I got back to being physically active again.

And now that I'm back in the groove, I was invited by Armi of http://homeiskool.blogspot.com/ to workout at Vibe Fitness Studio. I almost missed this opportunity because I got sick.


Vibe Fitness Studio is located in Mandaluyong. Although I came all the way from Antipolo, I find the location of the studio conveniently accessible. It only took me 45 minutes to reach the SM Light Mall in Pioneer. Thank God for LRT and MRT! By the way, the MRT Boni Station is connected to the SM Light Mall so you need not worry about commuting. There is also a UV Express station at the nearby Robinson's Forum. I opted for the shuttle service going home.


As I entered the studio, I immediately felt the positive energy greeting me. I love that it's brightly lit and well-ventilated. The place is also clean and smells fresh. I really hate fitness studios that smell like sweat and rubber.


The Active Room is where the 30-minute classes take place. The Vibe Energize is a 30-minute High Intensity Interval Training that uses body weight focusing on the basic movement patterns. Total Body Toning Class includes exercises such as goblet squats, bird dog, body weight lunges, dumbbell exercises and planking.


The Zen Room is where they hold the Vibe Zen class. It is a 60-minute yoga where the adoption of specific bodily postures and movements promotes spiritual tranquility and aesthetic disciple using breath control and meditation for health and relaxation.

The Fit Box will soon be available. This is where the weights and crossfit training will take place.


It was my first time to try Total Resistance Exercise (TRX) Suspension Training. I was a bit hesitant at first because I doubt if my arms are strong enough. But thanks to coach Jay, he made my TRX experience an enjoyable one.


I do planking at home so this is a bit easy for me. Coach Jay said I have an instagram-worthy form and that compliment really made me happy. It's great to know I've been doing it correctly at home.

The Oxygen Bar


Inhale the goodness of clean air at Vibe Fitness Studio's Oxygen Bar. I've tried this before somewhere at an expensive price. Members of Vibe can enjoy the Oxygen Bar after workout while lounging at the locker room area. I almost dozed off after having my 15-minute fix of oxygen infused with Cherry.

The comfy couch at the Locker Room

The Oxygen Bar has five flavors to choose from. Cherry is for those suffering from sleep disorder. Eucalyptus gives you a boost of energy. A bit stressed out? There's Vanilla for calming, Winter Green for chilling out and Lavander for stress relief. Craving for a buffet after working out? Almond can help suppress your appetite.
