FitPro holds master class for instructors, health enthusiasts Programme takes on jumping, functional training workouts

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 26:  The Fitness Professionals and Body Builders Committee in Kuwait (FitPro) in cooperation with XFit and Pilates & More Women’s Health Club held its first master class on Jumping and Functional Training Workouts on weekend at the new XFit and Pilates and More Gym in Hawally.
“The master class is part of FitPro’s programme in enhancing the knowledge and skills of fitness instructors and health enthusiasts and take part in this continuing study on cardio vascular and strength training,” stated FitPro President Noel Galicia. He added that aside from the added knowledge, the master class also aims at fostering camaraderie among FitPro members and their friends in a fun environment.

The master class attended by some 64 fitness instructors and health enthusiasts featured up-to-date techniques by using the latest equipment such as trampoline workout and pole resistance functional workout.
Fitness instructor Arlene Cabilan Silvestre gave a brief introduction of the master class and the new workout techniques on the trampoline called jumping and Slastix pole resistance workout. Janice Escorial Capili and Marissa Tambis led the workout on the trampoline while VitHel Managing Director Peter Fitz and Chloe Matutino Elima took charge of the functional training using the Slastix by Stroops.
“By using the trampoline when jumping , you can do high impact training with no impact actually, because you can jump high and you’ll have a soft landing on the trampoline The resistance of the trampoline works in a different way unlike in ordinary aerobics. This will benefit your cardio system and improve the strength system,” explained Fitz.

Fitz also introduced to the attendees the Slastix poles which are ideal for resistance training. “The muscles react differently and this is good for training aside from the fun factor of course,” outlined Fitz who announced that new XFit and Pilates and More Gym is the only gym in Kuwait that offers jumping and Slastix.
Spotted also during the event was the Manager and Owner of Fit 4 Fun, Khalid Isbieh who lauded the FitPro for organising the master class. “This is fun while getting healthy at the same time.  I congratulate FITPRO for doing a good job in promoting health and fitness here in Kuwait,” he cited.
 Other FitPro officers also came in full force namely Machris Delfin, Bidette Galicia, Allan Bayoco, Jerry Romasanta, Jonathan Lobo, Jonathan Batusbatusan, Ronald Alarcon, Sam Malit, Nelia Derodar, Blanche Bravo, Bullet Dalusong, Eugene Niedo and Jun Codilla.

 All participants were handed with certificate of attendance at the end of the master class.
“We would like to thank all the participants and our supporters for making this first master class very successful. We hope to organise more events in 2013 such as Diet and Exercise Seminars, Triathlon Training, Nutrition and Rehabilitation training. As our mission states, we are here to unite all Fitness Trainers, Bodybuilders and Fitness Enthusiasts in one common goal that is to promote standards of training, proper nutrition & supplementation while promoting camaraderie,” pointed out FITPRO PR Officer Machris Delfin.
