YOLO: "You only live once" so why not make the most out of what this  life can offer us. Do things differently, face your fear and be a dare devil. Put some variations in what you do. Now is the time, just go ahead and do it, no one else can do it except YOU! 

"How will you know if things will turn out good if you're not going to give it a shot!"

Seannah Swift a.k.a Girl On Fire

Find your role as a role model. A quotable definition about a girl on FIRE - Seannah. A mother, wife, champion and super rocking Ultra-Marathoner by heart and soul. For the record she finished nine ultra-marathon with seven champions  and two runner ups.

Seannah: Any form of exercise will make you fit and healthy, I'm not sure about it making you sexy hahaha. "Insecurity" Such a negative word, but it's the right term that trigger her to push through and win against every situations.

Working on night shift for two years until now is a motivation for her to continue doing healthy lifestyle. I was twenty six year old that time when I gave birth to my 3rd baby.  And hey... I'm too young to be Nanay look. So she started to think of something to shade off  those unwanted fats. Going to gym as the first step to lose weight from 58 to 52 kilograms in a span of six months. Over the past months she feel bored working out on gym so Seannah decided for an outdoor workout - RUNNING. She got first place on her first ultra marathon without support. 

"Kaya ang pagmamahal ko sa sarili ko ay idinadaan ko sa pagtakbo, dito ako masaya, dito ko nailalabas lahat ng nararamdaman ko, galit, saya, lungkot at takot."

The difference between your eagerness to change your body and improve because you hate it, is your commitment and dedication for a better change. There may be tons of complaints on weight issues but there's also tons of ways to achieve a healthier and fit body.

Until one day he realized, if others can be fit and have a healthy lifestyle why he can't ? Ryan started gaining confidence and conviction that even when he get old he can still do things he do in his 20's because of his lifestyle

"In life, everything is a choice and the good thing about it is you have the power to make that choice. It is never too late to become the better version of yourself. There may be times when you'll get tired but this should not stop you. You have to remember that the fruits of your labor is always sweeter when you work hard for it."

"I believed that God gave me this talent for a reason. With this, I am more than willing to be His instrument in promoting wellness and to keep on inSPIring people."

Rowie Pagcaliwagan

Rowie got his first taste of travel after graduating college and landing his first job as a means for his dream seeing those magnificent grandeur that keep him fall in love about travelling. He is a man who travel nothing but a backpack and camera, no plans but to keep going until his tired and broke.

Everyone knows that travelling is expensive but for Rowie, you don't have to be rich to travel. It's not just to travel but to learn. To connect with the nature, expand new horizon and perspective to the world, making friends during trips, wake up on your-own schedule and to discover yourself - to conquer your fears. Although these might have been the only option for him to cope up with stress and engage to a peaceful environment, he always pray to God for his guidance all the way. Believing that this outdoor activity keeps him busy, Rowie always set time to spend bonding with his family. 

"I love to watch the sunset and sunrises in different coasts, star gazing and camping on mountain peaks, immerse myself with the locals, try some exotic delicacies, and fall in love with different cities and cultures."

He always want to inspire others to take risk, be bold, get out of your comfort zones, travel on our own terms and test about our limits and accomplishments. Travelling on a weekend routine is my way to live a healthy lifestyle.

International Hiker

Mountaineering doesn’t require power lifting skills, but it does require a fair bit of strength. After all, you’re not just hauling your body up the mountain, you’re also probably hauling a large pack on your back and your body needs to be able to move vertically with that extra weight.

He may not be so-called professional, but at least he can train like one. Every workout or training is meaningless if they do not build to an outside purpose - you need to Train for your sport. The closer you get, the more sport-specific your training needs to be. Focus on general fitness early to build base strength and durability. More time climbing equals better climbing.

At 4,095 MASL, Mt. Kinabalu is the officially listed highest mountain is Southeast Asia. This mountain offers a diverse array of eco-systems starting with the pine forests were one passes by waterfalls and were encounters with birds, insects and squirrels are not uncommon. The mountain also has a mossy forest with its stunted vegetation. Lastly, it’s most famous attraction, is its rock dominated summit. Marvel at the different rock formations as you brave the cold and the freezing water that runs through parts of its trails.

The seven-hour climb was painstaking as a 60-degree climb on sandy terrain offers unstable footing, which is energy-sapping, as well as the constant fear of falling rocks from above. Still, the reward from watching sunrise from the summit of Mt. Semeru was worth the pain, with Java’s coastline, the nearby mountains, cities and the crater all joining to create a panoramic, picture-perfect view above the clouds.

For those considering taking up the mountains, even for a one-shot adventure, it’s not enough to just show up with your gear. You’ve also got to be physically prepared to go the distance, as there aren’t any quick exits from the side of a mountain. So if you’re planning to take on a peak, you’ll want to spend an appropriate amount of time and energy on getting your body’s physical systems ready for the demands that climbing puts on you. Our bodies may age, but the mountains will keep our spirits young and free.

"More time climbing equals better climbing."

So you like eating dessert, why not reduce it in half? Do morning jog or brisk walk at a park on weekends, When you wake up in the morning do sit ups and remember you can always turn to your loved ones to support you whenever you need them.
