One facility that stands out right now can be found at the heart of Vermosa, a mixed-use estate in Cavite - Sante Fitness Lab (SFL), a fitness and performance hub that offers innovative fitness programs for professional to everyday athletes, and with services like sports rehabilitation and performance testings.
What sets SFL further is its unique approach ensuring that its facilities and equipment promote functional fitness. “Here, humans work as the ‘machines’ and so, our fitness programs do not rely much on big equipment,” said Clarize Lucindo, SFL’s general manager.
Their functional fitness exercises aim to train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks as it simulates common movements you might do at home, at work, or in sports.
“So, whether it’s carrying a stack of papers across the floor, sprinting for the elevator, or changing the office water cooler, anyone enrolled in our fitness programs can be fit to perform their daily tasks with ease,” added Lucindo.
At par with the country’s premium fitness brands, SFL’s top-notch equipment, such as its Olympic barbells, platforms, manual treadmill, cable machines, rower, free weights, as well as speed and agility tools, are all of high-grade standards to compliment all your needs for your training goals. All of these are highlighted in an expansive functional fitness area with turf, where they also conduct their classes.
Athletes of all competitive levels will also love to do their strength and conditioning workouts here since the lab has all the toys you need to become stronger in your sport—from improving your power, speed, agility, and flexibility to many other components of physical fitness.
SFL boasts of its FitCamp class, a ladderized fitness program best for fat loss and general conditioning. It comes in a boot camp-style session where the trainers post a “Daily Grind”, which takes away the boredom but, brings a whole new level of excitement with the exercises to do for the day.
“You don’t need to have a prior fitness experience to join the camp since the FitCamp will let you scale down or progress up your movements and volumes to your fitness experience,” Lucindo noted.
