June 8, 2013 – Makati, Philippines – MediCard Philippines Inc., and celebrity fitness coach Jim Saret’s MetaFit (Metabolic Fitness) program bring back the Medicard-Metafit Fitness Boot Camp beginning June 10, 2013. The fitness program will visit three venues this year and will run from June to October 2013. The first leg will kick off at the Medicard Lifestyle Center in Makati City.
“The partnership with MediCard agreeing to create the Meta Fit camps here, to me is a very good combination because it puts a face to MediCard,” says Coach Jim Saret. “The synergy to me is actually very good because it will really benefit the participants.”
The collaboration between Medicard and Metafit complements the visions of both entities in of promoting a healthy and fitter lifestyle among Filipinos.
The Medicard-Metafit Fitness Boot Camp sets itself apart from other fitness programs today because it is one of most comprehensive and effective fitness programs around. Also, its affiliation with the country’s leading healthcare provider makes it one of the safest. The program also encourages participants to bond with one another as a community of fitness enthusiasts who share the same sense of achievement.
“We believe that this will promote a healthier lifestyle,” says Kate Joaquin, Medicard Philippines marketing manager. “One that is very engaging and is never boring because it involves a lot of your participation and your commitment.”
The Medicard-Metafit Fitness Boot Camp is a series of high intensity work outs that aim to increase the body’s natural metabolism through short, 4-minute work outs. Developed by Saret, it has grown in popularity among a wide range of individuals across all ages.
The first leg was held last February also at the Medicard Lifestyle Center in Makati. Due to its success, Medicard expanded the program into 3 legs across Metro Manila. The program hopes to bring in between 70 and 100 participants for each venue.
“We are truly pleased for this partnership with Coach Jim Saret,” says Dr. Nicky Montoya, Medicard Philippines president. “This is something we believe in because Medicard Philippines believes that quality healthcare is all about taking preventive measures by being fit and healthy. We want to give good quality coaches and exercise programs that will actually be effective in making people live a healthier life that is why we partnered with a group that we believe can actually help people keep with the program, enjoy themselves, and get healthy.”
