The launch of fitness tools BioScore and CustomFit coincide with the premiere of Fit for Fashion Season 2 to inspire viewers to start their own transformations

Ever wondered how old your body really is, compared to your chronological age? Well, now you can find out! Fitness First continues to build on its reputation as the fitness leader with the launch of BioScore, a bespoke health and fitness assessment which determines your biological or ‘fitness age,’ compared to your real age.

Unlike other health fitness assessments, BioScore doesn’t look at bodyweight or body fat percentage, but instead, focuses on other key metrics. Conducted by a trained specialist, the BioScore assessment comprises a series of health and fitness tests, and a comprehensive lifestyle questionnaire, in order to obtain a more holistic picture of a person’s health:
Health test: This element of the test looks at the status of key vital statistics including height to waist ratio, lung function and blood pressure.
Fitness test: This element includes a series of short and simple exercises to assess aerobic fitness, power, strength, flexibility, agility and core endurance. Exercises include a TRX row, standing jumps, core endurance drills, hexagonal agility, and a 500m row.
Lifestyle test: This element goes beyond the physical with a questionnaire that looks at lifestyle choices in and out of the gym, such as nutrition, stress levels, sleep and drinking habits to build a bigger picture of one’s health.

International Symposium: Seismic Retrofit

Smartphone Sepanx: What Powers Mobile Advertising in the Philippines

Probably the only thing that’s growing faster than the population of the Philippines is the population of mobile phones in the country. To date, mobile phones outnumber the population by 5%, and smartphones are expected to overtake feature phones before the end of the year at 43%-37%, respectively. This should come as no surprise because Filipinos’ penchant for mobile in general, and social media in particular, has resulted in titles such as Selfie Capital of the World and Social Media Capital of the World. Most recently, the country even broke Twitter’s record of most number of tweets for #AldubMostAwaitedDate and #NationalPabebeWaveDay.

Asean Tourism Forum 2016 Message From Minter of Host Destination

 A cooperative effort of promoting the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region as a single tourist destination, the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) is an annual gathering that brings together the member countries of the ASEAN to discuss innovations, trends, and developments in the tourism industry and facilitate joint policy formulations to accelerate the growth of the region’s tourism.
 Most people describe the countries in our region as "fiercely competitive." But upon closer look, one realizes that the more the countries of ASEAN compete, the more that we all tend to gravitate towards growth. Our region is characterized by coopetition—a cooperative, collaborative decision by all players to compete with each other so that the world will choose the region before choosing the country. Our countries become, in very real terms, each other’s value extension—we become each other’s developing markets. And to make this development last for our children, we have to make certain that we are mindful of the social and environmental context that our region’s growth exists in.
