Fitness Month: PMAP X UFC Gym

For the next PMAP fitness month activity. PMAP partnered with UFC Gym. The models were taught by our very own PMAP model, Mauro Lumba, who has years of experience in mixed martial arts and is also a UFC Gym coach. Members learned how to do warm-ups, stretching, and core exercises, the UFC way. The models also learned the proper kickboxing stance, and simple Muay Thai techniques. It was a fun learning experience for everyone.

Special thanks to RAW Natural Juice Bar for providing us with natural, fresh, and healthy cold-pressed juice.

PMAP Team Building at Hotel Kimberly Tagaytay

PMAP held their annual team building at Hotel Kimberly in Tagaytay on March 3, 2018. The hotel grounds are massive which includes three swimming pools (one adult and two kiddie pools), playground, an events place and a mini farm. Hotel Kimberly is the perfect place for a stay-cation and because of its size and amenities, the perfect venue for the PMAP activities as well. The team building activity was facilitated by a close PMAP friend, Jeffrey Wong. The activities strengthened the models’ knowledge of PMAP, their relationships with one another, and their passion for the association. Come nightfall, the models gathered together around a bonfire roasting marshmallows and partying for a night of merriment.
