Perfect Timing!

Last Friday, I was invited to join the Launch and Blogging event of Fit ‘n Right, the first fruit juice that markets L-Carnitine as an effective food ingredient that helps burn fats.

I’m looking forward to this event, primarily, because since I’m on a diet, I know that I’ll learn something out of this event to help me reduce my weight and tone my muscles.  And secondly, I’m excited because the event will be held at Taste Asia at SM Mall of Asia, I know that I’ll get a chance to eat my favorite seafood dish, the Shrimp Thermidor.



Taste Asia



Shrimp Thermidor

The organizers and usherettes welcomed us warmly. They led us to this sumptuous buffet table where we can eat as many as we can. Niiiiice! I love it!

Hello, Shrimp Thermidor!



My dinner plate



BUT!

During the event, we were introduced to a lot of people. People who opened our eyes to reality – BEING SEXY IS NOT ALWAYS BEING FIT AND RIGHT.

And that was the time I felt guilty. Guilty because I ate a lot! When I saw that Shrimp Thermidor, I forgot that I’m on a diet! My gosh! What have I done to deserve this?! Hahahahaha!

Seriously, I felt bad after eating that overly luscious dinner. Plus, having this very delectable dessert, I’m guilty as charged.



Dessert


The man of the hour was this guy:


Coach Jim Saret


Coach Jim Saret is a sport scientist who obtained his MS Sports Science degree from Brigham Young University in the US. He is a core training expert and a sports and fitness writer and lecturer. Currently, he is the Sports Program Head of the Ateneo de Manila University and the Strength and Conditioning Coach of the PBA, POC, and the PSC.

I’m so glad that I had a chance to sit and listen in one of the greatest lectures on living fit and right.

Learning F.I.T or the Fast Intense Training as an effective way to lose calories in your body is really awesome!

In  the event, he had a guy who weighs, I think, 200 pounds or more demonstrated to us his 4-minute exercise. After four minutes, he lost 96 calories. We were delighted and we can’t help but to clap, but Coach Saret interrupted us immediately and told us, that it was just the beginning. And into our amazement, after one and a half hourh while the lecture continues and the guy just sat in one corner, with the help of his body calorie meter, he lost as much as 400+ calories in his body! I cannot believe it at first, but, hell, yeah, I saw it all with my own two eyes! Really amazing!

The secret?
Del Monte Fit ‘n Right!


 




Del Monte Fit ‘n Right

And to prove that it wasn’t a joke, he asked three bloggers to participate and perform the said F.I.T. exercise. And in just four minutes again, the three bloggers, Dani, Earth and Jeff were all sweating and catching up breath.




 
Team Bloggers

According to Coach Saret, the guy drank a bottle of Fit ‘n Right TWO HOURS BEFORE he did his 4-minute exercise, which was the suggested time allowance for Fit ‘n Right to circulate all over our body.

Coach Saret also brought some of his team members to demonstrate other exercises which only need few easy gadgets, which implied that you can exercise anytime and anywhere you like. There’s really no need to go to the gym! Less expenses, more calories burned!




 

 

 
Team Fit 'n Right

And in line with F.I.T., they also informed us about the upcoming “Dare to be Fit ‘n Right Fun Run.”


Dare to be Fit Fun Run


As to inform you, guys, one of my weekly must-dos recently is to run every Sunday at Quirino Grandstand, my simple way to tone my wiggly belly and to strengthen my heart and lungs. And now with this F.I.T. as an addition to my exercise routine, and Fit ‘n Right juice drink of course, this Fun Run will be nothing but a  happy, sweaty and healthy day.

Let's join and run! Register online!


Happening on November 22 at the SM Mall of Asia, the official call race time is 4 a.m. at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall and the race will start at 6 a.m.
Another good thing, the 3K/5K/10K men and women open will benefit the victims of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng, among others, through the SM Foundation.

Isn’t that great? Being healthy and helping others at the same time, amazing!

For a registration fee of P300, runners can get their race packet with the Dare to Fit ‘n Right Fun Run singlet, race bib, Fit ‘N Right products, etc. Interested participants can register at the following areas:

CEMG Office – Unit 3A Vernida I Bldg., Amorsolo St., Legaspi Village, Makati City/ Look for Marianne Tapales (892.5842/09155498282)

Dare to be Fit ‘n Right booths in Bonifacio High Street, Taguig and in selected SM Hypermarkets:  Mall of Asia, Sucat, Pasig, and North EDSA

Fitness First branches on November 16, 2009.

1st, 2nd and 3rd place runners from each division will win P10, 000, P5, 000 and P3, 000, respectively. All registered runners will also automatically qualify for the raffle, where they can win a Lenovo laptop.


I know that most of us are too lazy to exercise, and with the Christmas holiday coming, exercises can wait. But it’s wrong -- TOO WRONG!

I believe that it is better to start exercising at this early time, so that by the time that Christmas holiday comes, our metabolism is already different. Our body can acquire as much food as we want and can already burn the calories quickly because of our fit and right routine.


Now is never too late!


♫Let’s get physical, physical! ♫

So now, our refrigerator is equipped for this goal! Cowabungga!

Nice article Alex...
Not really a drinker of fit and right because of its sugar content...(Im diabetic)
It could have been better if it's sugarfree.
Nice juice for people on a diet...

Alex Dizon said...

Hi, Aris.

The sugar content of Fit 'n Right was one of the questions raised during this event, unfortunately, yeah, due to its sugar content, this is not advisable to drink for diabetics.

I do hope that they can create a juice drink with L-carnitine which can also be consumed by diabetics like you.

Thanks for reading, thoug!

Well, maybe you can join the Fun Run. :-)

Sai said...

i used to drink fit n right when I was still chubby and yeah! it works! I want to know the exercises taught in this event hahaha, I gained a little weight and I want to learn those fat burners :))

Blitz Macalma said...

good luck man! hope you win!!!! ;)

The Third Love Blog said...

This is absolutely exciting!

Just a thought comin' thru, I spoke to this med rep guy and he's like why drink fit 'n right when you can just buy one of those pills that has this carnitine thing...

and I'm like thanks but no thanks I sure would love to have the fruit taste in my "diet/healthy eating" such as what you get with fit 'n right.

Pills just look scary. Pineapple flavored fit 'n right is way too awesome!

R-vn M. said...

so napansin kong meron pala silang 1 liter bottle... try kong bumili mga minsan ng isa para makatikim... ano suggested nyong flavah?

Rio said...

Sikat na pala ng blog mo. Dami nagko-comment. :)

Iinom na nga din ako ng Fit 'n Right.

kat furr said...

It would help me as well to loose this baby fats since i jzt had a bby ;).. y in the world i didn't thought about this alot sooner???? i so love u!!!! thanks!!

nash said...

nwei,for sure you'll soon become fit as wat you always wanted because u seemed "always on the go"....so goodluck po!!^^, go go go!!

Ging said...

Hi alex, you're very lucky that you've been invited to this Fit n Right activity at least you kept us, your friends, informed about the product. My sister and cousins love this drink as they are really health conscious thinking that they are only in the HS level. This drink really has a huge impact on the youth so I hope Fit n Right will be available forever!

i totally agree that being fit is one of the primary concerns of many. however, not everyone has the time nor the inclination to become gymrats. its great to know that there are alternatives to help one burn calories and get fitter! good job!

Abbie said...

the l-carnatine in fit'n right works talaga when you drink it before exercising ano? :D

rachelle lim said...

Nice article, very you, very Alex! hehehe, i was just debating w/ my mother that it's impossible that her co teacher's diabetes worsen (or developed..whatever) due to Fit n Right, i was not reading the contents, i thought it's just artificial sugar, anyway, last week i just bought 3 boxes of Fit n Right and I am actually drinking one while reading your article. I've been dieting since May this year, wala na nga lang exercise due to school load. Im happy you're into this I hope you convince Apol to diet also, she should visit your blog.

In fairness, shrimp thermidor looks like my next favorite, i might try soon!

joy a. said...

Fit 'n' Right sounds like a miracle drink if it really was able to rid the participants of calories, taking it before doing the 4-minute workout. Maybe I should get into it myself. Thanks for the heads up via your article! =)

Naghahanap ako ng pic ni Mariel. Fit N' Right endorser siya, 'di ba?

Meh, anyway, kakaiba nga iyan a. Umiinom din ako Fit N Right minsan, pero di ako palasukat ng weight, kaya di ko alam kung effective nga. Basta alam ko masarap siya. XD

Hi Alex..thanks for posting this..Normally, when I run after office hours, I just drink water to rehydrate. But since I am trying to lose weight for my big day in May, I need to double time right? After I read your article, I will now include Fit N Right in my workout regimen. thanks!
