I Dare You to Be Fit ‘n Right!

There are many benefits to being fit ‘n right. Personally, as a lover of sports, more specifically football, I need to stay fit so I can still run with younger players and remain competitive. But, more than the need to keep fit, I do feel more alive and energetic when I am fit.



I usually do a few push-ups a day and have been doing this regularly since April. Aside from that I used to play football on a regular basis and even played competitively for our football club Marikina United. I have always thought myself as a pretty fit person.

The "Dare to be Fit 'n Right" Logo



With Coach Jim Saret


But during the recent Dare to Be Fit ‘n Right launch by Del Monte Fit ‘n Right, where Coach Jim Saret, a sports scientist and a fitness consultant of the Philippine Olympic Committee, spoke about “The Science of Getting Fit and Losing Weight”, I was rocked to my core and was challenged as I learned that to say that person is in great physical condition, he must be able to:



*Bench-press one and one-half times his body weight to say that he’s got proper upper body strength,
*Run a mile and a half in ten minutes to declare that he’s got lower body cardiovascular fitness,
*Touch the rim of the basketball ring to claim that he’s got lower body power (but, of course height must be factored in, too),
*Leg-press two and one-fourth times his body weight to say that he’s got proper lower body strength,
*Swim 700 yards in twelve minutes to declare that he’s got upper body aerobic endurance,
*Do forty push-ups without stopping to say that he’s got upper body muscle endurance,
*Throw a basketball seventy-five feet away, on his knees, to claim he’s got upper body power,
*Touch his toes to say that he’s got flexibility, and lastly,
*Measure up and see that he’s got the right body mass index (BMI).

Now, as you read these, I know that for those who are not so much into exercising, they may seem like impossible goals and instead of motivating you to exercise more, they make you want to throw in the towel. But, you can always look at it another way, that is, to see all of them as a challenge. And that is how I saw them.

So right now, I am upping my number of push-ups a day and since the Dare to be Fit ‘n Right event at Taste Asia at the SM Mall of Asia, I have been trying to do forty push-ups straight. I haven’t successfully done it without stopping but I have been making it up to forty! Talk about being dared to be fit and right.

For those who are not very athletic and not into exercising, Coach Jim shared the four-minute workout, a.k.a. the F.I.T. (Fast Interval Training) workout which combines different short exercises (plank exercise, squats, push ups, lunges, crunches, side plank exercise - see video demo below) and it lets one burn 400 calories during exercise. Now, the great thing about this exercise is that calories continue burning even when a person is finished with the 4-minute workout!

To demonstrate this, a the launching of the Dare to be Fit ‘n Right campaign, a guy was asked to do the F.I.T. workout while wearing a calorie counter watch. During the workout, the calorie counter registered almost 400 calories burned and the number of calories continued to increase to almost 800 calories ten to fifteen minutes after. This is a breakthrough because usually, a person running on a treadmill for an hour only burns 200 calories. So why go the long route if the goal is only to burn calories?

The demonstration of the four-minute workout (F.I.T. workoout)

My own demonstration of the 4-minute F.I.T. (Fast Interval Training) workout by sports scientist and Master Coach Jim Saret

In addition to all these, drinking Del Monte Fit ‘n Right two hours before the F.I.T. workout or any kind of exercise, will speed up your metabolism or, in other words, help you burn fat faster. The reason is that Del Monte Fit ‘n Right contains L-Carnitine which helps burn fat. It increases the use of fat as an energy source by transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are ‘burned’ to release energy for body functions. Del Monte Fit ‘n Right also has B Vitamins 1, 6, 12 to help speed up metabolism.

Del Monte Fit ‘n Right is so consistent with their claim and their advocacy that they organized the “Dare to be Fit ‘n Right Fun Run 2009” which will be held on November 22, 2009 at the SM Mall of Asia (you can register here). This event is not only for runners but also for those who want to help typhoon victims because this Fun Run is for their benefit through the SM Foundation. The race mechanics are available in the photo below.

If I did not have a schedule on the 22nd of November I would surely have joined the Dare to be Fit ‘n Right Fun Run 2009. But I need to preach that Sunday morning in our church so my contribution is spreading the word about the Fun Run.


So what are you waiting for? Get your supply of Del Monte Fit ‘n Right and start exercising. Be a fan of their Facebook page. Better yet, exercise with other advocates and join the Dare to be Fit ‘n Right 2009 Fun Run!

I so wanna be Fit 'N Right for you. Mwah! :-)

aeirin said...

Monch and I are planning n din to change our lifestyle para maging healthy kami =)

Ed said...

I've been doing the workout after the event and target ko din dagdagan yung pushups ko. Mahirap pero masarap! hehe

Between Bites said...

I like the post, inspiring to do running or boxing again... I havent since the start of the year.

Love fit and right, pineapple flavor! :)

SurvivorDean said...

If you want to gain weight, what's the good alternative for push-ups? I am aware push-ups are great exercises for your chest but for ectomorphs like me, the exercise burns a lot of calories.

Yes, nice post you've got here. This is helpful.

Sire Arevalo said...

Fit 'N Right Four Seasons is still my favorite..been drinking it even before the bloggers event. Coupled with Coach Jim Saret's regimen I think everyone can be fit soon. Thanks Jeff for the guidelines..I was a soccer player in college too hehe.

Goodluck to all of us..Cheers and God bless! =]

edelweiza said...

haaay, ang hirap naman talagang magpapayat, oo. but i liked fit n right's new blueberry-grape flavor...bigla tuloy ako nainspire to lose weight. :)

Rowena Wendy Lei said...

I hope they come out with a sugar-free line soon, a lot of my family members are diabetic and I'm sure they'd love to try the FIT workout along with Del Monte Fit 'n Right.

Dani Salasalan said...

Si Mr.Jeff ay si Mr.Buff! Dapat Johnny Bravo ka na after doing the FIT work out :)

Paolo said...

How does it feel to be the first one to finish the FIT regimen during the event? :) It looks like most of us, (in a way) became more health conscious after that night.

Also, thanks for sharing the "A Fit Man Can..." list. It's still my goal to achieve any of those! :))

Here's to healthier lifestyles! Also, nice seeing you guys there! :D

Ria said...

i WILL do this!!! i think i am really feeling the effects of my weight gain and i have to actively do something about it. hopefully this change in lifestyle and habits makes a big impact in my health.

The Insider said...

Wow, I did not realize that you are so health conscious. Anyway, that's good, it does dare me to exercise more.

earthlingorgeous said...

Naku Jeff di mo na need yan your fit na :)

Don said...

Pare, kailangan ko na talagang mag-exercise. Salamat sa paalala mo.

The New Blogger said...

Hi Jeff we can be running buddies.

My Poems My Life said...

i run every suturday and sunday morning and even swim twice every two weeks! it a simple way i can make my body fir and right!

Jeff Aspacio said...

Thanks for the comments friends! :)

Jeff said...

@Jennie: (hugs) c'mon let's play badminton na.

@aeirin: That's a great idea. Great chance din to bond together.

@Ed: I agree, Ed. Mahirap pero masarap. :)

@Between Bites: You box pala? Anyway, you do look athletic.

@SurvivorDean: Push ups do burn a lot of calories but maybe you can try increasing protein intake. Without trying other exercises but doing regular push ups, you may gain weight by increasing muscle mass in the chest, shoulders and arms.

@Sire: Talaga? I didn't know you played soccer!

@edelweiza: Mahirap talaga i-discipline ang sarili. I also struggle with that. That's why this campaign is so helpful - it's fit 'n right for us who want to be fit 'n right.

@Wendy: I hope so, too. That may increase their target audience.

@Dani: Hindi naman (blush). Normal lang naman BMI ko. I don't like to be big and all bufffed up, mababawasan ang agility.

@Paolo: It feels great. I really enjoy any challenge. It was nice seeing you again, too!

@Ria: Take it one day at a time, you can do it!

@The Insider: I'm not really that health conscious. I just enjoy sports.

@Don: Anytime bro!

@Carl: Sure. Medyo matagal na ako di nakakapag jogging.

@Lhan: Buti ka pa may regular schedule. Ako natigil na but I hope to get back to running and playing football again.

earthlingorgeous said...

whoa! ang galing magpush-up! hands down sa vids!

ohmski said...

wow ang hirap ng routine mo a.

Cha said...

Good job on the video! I can follow along to do my own exercise.

Lita said...

Are those the only exercises that I can do? Aren't there other routines I can use in the FIT workout?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for demonstrating it on video. I'm more of a watch 'n learn type of person. But I hope to become a fit 'n right type soon, hehe.

liza enriquez said...

ang sweet naman ng comment ni ate jennie. :)

i wanna join something like that. i wanna be FIT one day! and RIGHT for someone narin! hahaha

pag may mga ganyan ulit next year sabihan niyo 'ko ah.

sana manalo kayo tapos ilibre niyo 'ko ah. maraming fit n right! ahhahaha

What if a person is really fat? Are the exercises easy enough for those who need to lose a lot of fat?

Janice Summers said...

That 4-minute workout is interesting, I want to try it.

Anonymous said...

Do I still need to go through a diet if I try this?

Jeff said...

@earth: napagod ako sa pag gawa ng video, imbes na 4-minutes naging 8 minutes dahil nag take two :)

@ohmski: medyo mahirap nga but when it's done regularly you'll get used to it

@Cha: that's great Cha!

@Lita: You can do other routines like jumping jacks, sumo squats and other simple exercises, just make sure to alternate upper and lower body exercises

@Leo: Thanks, Leo!

@Liza: We'll make sure to inform you :)

@Imelda: The exercises can be done at your own pace. As you progress you can also increase the frequency and the speed of each routine.

@Janice: Go ahead, give it a try!

@Anonymous: a proper diet and regular exercise is the best combination for a healthy body

Fitz said...

Can I just say ang sweet ng first comment? :P

maresha said...

Exercise?dream ko lang mging fit at mwala taba ko haha.right?

Eli @ Business Sphere said...

Great post! Your explanation about the need to be fit and right is clear and convincing.

I agree with you that it is important for any person, both men and women to be fit and right, to be healthy. The alternative is to have a weak body which will result to a weak mind, thus sickness will follow.

As the saying goes, health is wealth and is tax free.

This is not an endorsement for Del Monte, but I believe drinking Fit 'n Right helps to have a healthy body since it is made from natural ingredients. That's the reason why I drink Fit 'n Right everyday. Not only me, but my 7 year old daughter also.

As the commercial of one drug company says in Pilipino, "Bawal magkasakit."

Therefore, your post about regular exercise to be fit and right strikes to the core. For our health and for longer life, exercise to be fit and right.

Kirhat said...

Nice to see a post about how to stay fit and healthy. I've been a soccer player throughout my elementary, high-school and college days, but ever since I started working, I haven't had a chance to play again. With this post, I'm more inclined now to push myself and pursue other sports activities that will keep me healthy. Sabi nga nila, health is wealth!

Seek No More

Mike Golch said...

I'm not able to much exercize with having seizures that come on at anytime.I do the best that I can.

BigDaddyRichard said...

My doctor advised me to lose weight, but unlike you, I can't do tough exercises because of steel chains embedded on pelvic...guess will try "Fit 'n Right sans the heavy exercises. Keep healthy!

hitesh rawat said...

this is a tough regime.....i'm getting very unfit these days....damn...working and workiing out is not that easy for me atleast......hate it.....

didn't even get a chance to play for last 6-8 months....love sports especially Cricket and Football.....damn miss those days...when i could play the day ....and didn't even cared about anything else....

best of luck....

samdaddycool said...

I wish I could do work out everyday... Nice job! Nice drink!

Vivian said...

Very interesting post, i wanna try this Fit 'n Right to be Fit all the time. Good luck.

Brenda said...

Best of luck with your fitness challenge.

Nessa said...

That's quite a post :)

I admit that I'm so unfit. And I hate being unfit... just a few steps on the stairs and I'm already panting like crazy.

I'm not into vigorous exercise but I do like aerobics, music automatically moves me... hehe

All the best!

draxc0la said...

I think sport is an important thing to do. and running is a sport of the cheapest and the simplest thing to do for people busy with work.

Dhemz said...

what a great idea! very inspiring indeed.....thanks for sharing!

I would love to try the drink....:)

kat said...

i only love the drinks but never kong love ang mag work out..hehe

Larry Brauner said...

I was very fit when I was younger. I ran two marathons and crossed trained on bike and cross country skis.

Although I'm much older, I still have hopes of getting fit once again.

FishHawk said...

Even thought I consider most of those things that a person MUST be able to do before being considered to be in great physical condition to be utter nonsense, it is good to set goals. Therefore, I wish you well in your endeavor.

Shaine said...

Very interesting post, I don't know anything about fit n Right Del Monte until now. Your posts open my mind to it. I am aware that I gain weight and this is the best thing for me to do, to exercise and be healthy.

Nice video anyway.

Tekkaus said...

Agreed, we need to stay fit for all our lives. :) I am a basketball player too and I couldn't agree more that we need to be fit and ready all the time.

Tekkaus said...

Wow! You used to play on a regular basis for a football club? Awesome. Then you must be pretty fit huh. :D I do push ups too...but once in a blue moon. Perhaps I am just too plain lazy.

Tekkaus said...

But I used to be very active during my schooling life. I engaged in sports (football+basketball+softball) almost 3 hours daily. :)

Tekkaus said...

Wow! So one will only be considered fit if he/she can complete those criteria? I think I can do that too except swimming. :p

Tekkaus said...

Anyway that's all from me. All the best to you. :D

Tanya Walton said...

This is all very interesting but personally is not something I will ever follow...I am not an unfit person but certainly do not fit into the category above either. I maintain a healthy lifestyle with homegrown organic veg and fruit and cook wholesome meals...I have an allotment which keeps me busy and get's me out in the fresh air...I do plenty of walking and enjoy doing yoga...I feel healthy and well in myself and what I do fits in with my family lifestyle..I don't think there is much point in being super fit if you have no time to enjoy yourself after and I certainly wouldn't if i tried to do all that you have written about. However for any who do wish to hit the targets I wish you all the best of luck!!

Oh and I can mange 30 push-ups without stopping!!

Tania said...

It is so hard to stick with a program... well done.
I've been trying to stay motivated to get my last 8 lbs of baby weight off... bootcamp, stairmaster, push ups, lunges, sit ups... oh my!

See you droppin'

Duni said...

Hi Jeff!

I read through the list of things you need to accomplish to consider being fit. That's quite a challenge and I wish you the best of luck with it!
As for me...I'm a skinny person, and I'm not really into power sports. I prefer yoga and Pilates :)

have a nice day,

Duni

Liz said...

I take Fit n Right too and I'm working out again, Hopefully I'll reach my target weight in 3 months.

Nita said...

That's a great idea. I guess it is better kaysa mag workout. I'm too lazy to do it. I'm looking forward to try the pineapple flavor as well.

Blogger Corner said...

Good Job. I wish I had the to do the same. :)

Glitterstop said...

I always wanted to have a healthy lifestyle and that includes exercising. I definitely want to try this out. :)

CAP News said...

First step, Fit 'n Right ... Second step, Mr Universe! Bring it!

Tyson said...

Given that standard, I am surely not "fit." I'm not sure how many people beside high-level athletes and fitness trainers could successfully achieve all of those marks. Nonetheless, the goals are worthy benchmarks for those interested in achieving them. I'd do better writing about sports.

Funky Town Disco 70s said...

Hello Jeff, I think your interesting remarks about the sport, and suggestions that come on. For me, there are about 20 years who practice sports in a constant (body building) and fitness to keep me in shape. In my humble opinion, 80 percent of the results obtained are in nutrition, high protein and few carbohydrates, lots of vegetables and fruits in season. Thanks again and thanks for all the suggestions.sorry for the translation perhaps not exactly correct, have a nice day, David (45 years old) from Italy

sheilasultani said...

Good luck reaching your fitness goals. Fitness is such an important aspect in life. I think it makes you better at everything else in your life - it makes you feel great!

Sheila

kerrickenterprises said...

Some of those goals are are attainable for me right now, such as the push ups, benchpress, and basketball throw. I definitely would have trouble with the jumping, due to my stature (I am just a little guy). All in all, good goals to set for a total body work out, although I did not see and mention of core training such as crunches, sit-ups, etc.

Grampy said...

I congratulate you on your fit program.So many of us should follow your lead.Good Luck.

ally said...

wow! astig! I might dare to be fit again... this post is inspiring!You're doing great! Keep it up!

Love fit n right!

Linda said...

Great information! Good luck in getting yourself fit.

Paul Baines said...

Hmm I have to admit I don't keep that fit, although skinny and in relatively good shape for my age I can see it would have many advantages doing more.

Don said...

I remember those difficult lunges and crunches from my days in sports. How nice it would have been to have Fit 'N Right back then. I'll have to look into this product, because with the extensive cycling that I do it could be a perfect match for me. Thanks.

zizzybob said...

Good luck!

vickie said...

You go Jeff!! Fit 'n Right sounds like a winner program!

Funride said...

Hey Jeff, I´m sure you´re right... and fit too, of course.

Even though I recognize the brand (Del Monte) I never heard about this product, or perhaps it has a different name here in Portugal... I´m not sure.

Due to another wrist surgery I haven´t been able to ride mi bikes and I´m looking forward for that moment... but to be true I believe that 4 minute training isn´t enough. Is better than nothing but it isn´t enough.

All the best,
Ricardo

DeletedSpam said...

Every work out is good! Almost every calorie counter watches are not accurate, so...

I prefer to have fun instead of counting calories, this way it´s easier to keep exercising for longer periods of time and consequently burning more fat... I´m sure that´s what most people want, isn´t it!?

Good luck :)

Denesa said...

Wow! You are definitely very disciplined in keeping yourself Fit 'N' Right. I do abit of exercises now and then but guess need to work harder to make it regular:)

StaceyC4 said...

I knew nothing about this product until reading your post. It sounds like a great thing. Good luck with it!

aldon @ orient lodge said...

As people approach New Years, more and more people will be looking at goals to set for being fit and you've provided a good list.

It will be interesting to see how many of your blogging friends take up some of these goals, and perhaps more importantly, how many of them actually follow through and achieve these goals.

I hope you write some follow up posts.

Buggys said...

I'm so glad I ran across this post. I have recently begun an exercise routine trying to get in better shape. I'm going to give the Del Monte fit n right a try. I'll let you know how I progress.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

For me becoming fit has always been a challenge. I used to walk a few miles each day and found that along with eating healthy allowed me more energy and in addition to losing weight, I felt much better. I think it's all in the mindset as well. Great article.

JT Locke -- The Frugal Housewife said...

I didn't know about Fit N Right. I already knew that I was way out of shape but the list detailing what one must be able to do to be considered in great physical condition proved it! If I could accomplish 1/4 of that I'd be happy.

WillOaks Studio said...

Fitness, by any and all means available, is a goal all humans need to set for both health and happiness. If Fit N Right helps achieve those goals, then it's a great product!

JAS said...

Interesting post. Loved the video. I'm going to give the exercises a try. I've never heard about the the drink but I'll look into it and maybe give it a try.

Rebecca @ Freaky Frugalite said...

Wow. Those goals are awe-inspiring. What's even more amazing is that I think I used to do some of them! Having four kids really wipes a gal out!

I wish you great success, Jeff! The fat-burning qualities of Fit 'n Right look great, hehe! I'll have to look this up.

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

Your in great shape! Good job!

Jennifer/Connectwithyourteens said...

Perfect timing. I just started a new exercise program and I will now add this drink to my regimen. Sounds great.

Patrick said...

I think I missed the boat by a few days on this one, but best of luck to you, Jeff! You seem to be well on the way already :)

Vinay Rai said...

You need to be fit and right in order to make the most of your life. If you are not healthy no matter how wealthy you are, you will never be happy.

Metallman said...

Hey there.

I tend to do a quick work out at night. Something that is only 15mins long but is done nightly. I'll do 25 push ups rest a minute, 25 curls, rest a minute, 25 lunges, rest a minute and finish off with 25 butterflies. It's a quick workout but boy do I feel it and all in about 15 minutes.

ManOverBoard.com said...

Wow if I can do a 4 minute exercise routine and get fit, you can count me in. I will have to get some of Del Montes new drink next time my wife goes shopping. I know the older I get the better I need to take care of my body. Thanks for the post.

Good luck! Love the post. I'm one of those who are motivated, not discouraged, by hard goals, so I understand exactly!

Those goals sound extremely intimidating. I don't imagine I could ever keep up with them.

Great program, and so inspiring! Best of luck (and endurance) in your fitness journey!

Jeff wrote a pretty good article. I particularly enjoyed his sharing of his personal routine which really shows how far he has to go to attain total Fitness. Personally, I use free weights and prefer to run outside over the treadmill routine.

atenean101 said...

and just like most of these people who have commented here, for sure i wanna be fit and right too. i'll try to do some of your tips here... i believe it's been a year now since i have had an exercise, & maybe i'll have some fresh air and jogging later today. with the help of a fresh drink. ^^

Doing Business said...

Yes, exercise is needed to keep fit. I usually ride my bike every sunday :)

Jane said...

Napagod ako watching your video! Hahaha...but it was good because it refreshed my memory of what Coach Jim taught us that night.

I think I should do this workout on days when I can't do yoga. The plank and side planks are familiar to me as we do this in yoga. The pushups too. But the crunches and squats are new routines since we do something different to strengthen the core in yoga.

Thanks for posting this, Jeff!

Twerlyn said...

Fit n Right was the fave drink of hubby when we were in the Philippines.. and i liked it too! the 4 season flavor.

Now I know the secret of sexy and healthy people: to drink it 2 hours before the workout. =)

I'll try this exercise. Thanks for the clear demo!

Wow what a great video and also a great drink.. My son is a skate boarder and I bet he would love the drink too.. good luck!

Oland V. said...

to be fit and right you need to lessen to eat fatty foods i would suggest at night oatmeal w/ banana is good! then work out like me kickboxing oh by the way i teach kickboxing if you will trained to me in 10mins. you will loose atleast 5 pounds...

Oland V. said...

running and jogging is also a good work out to be fit and right! if you don'nt want to go out to run...buy a skipping rope before taking a shower try it for 10 mins...ok? love your body and live right! Tsup! mwaaaaaaa :-)

well, for me its too hard to fit 'N Right especially if you realy love to eat like me,but if that Fit'n Right works why not try it.

I am an avid runner and veteran road cyclist. Your post was most impressive.

I have never been a fan of sport drinks personally but your post has definitely peaked my curiosity with this Del Monte's Fit'N Right drink.

Is it available in Canada?

Good luck on efforts in this contest.

In my thoughts you are already a winner as you take such good care of yourself physically and spiritually :)

Reema said...

Great Post! Good Luck!

grayspirit said...

Aysus! I believe in exercise for fitness, but you have a big challenge for me. Hehe ... at least I jog and walk an hour each morning. Hmmm ... but maybe some upper body exercises might be good also.

Trading Resource said...

I can do more than 50 push-ups, touch my toes, but the one thing I can't do is swim 700 yards in twelve minutes because I dont know to swim! lol

Good Post...

Shawie said...

an excellent goal! I've been on & off on my diet as well as exercise, the last few weeks. It's been extremely busy but I sure do exercise when I feel myself a little heavier and jeans or clothes don't seem comfortable anymore. One of my favorite routine is the 20-minute workout of Jillian Michaels of The Biggest Loser... It basically is a powerful one, a 6-minute strength training, 6-min cardio & 6-min abs... worked great for me:))
but I can't do push-ups like you did, lol! a traveling push-up is a little bit harder to me too:(
have fun getting fit!

LaaneLoves said...

Well, what my kids can't I can: touch my toes. IN fact, I can lay my hands flat on the ground before my feet.
The result of lifelong ballet.

I wish you lots of fun and success!

Looks interesting, I might give it a go - anybody know of an online store that carries Fit n Right?

janettetoral.com said...

Hello Jeff. Thank you for all the info that you shared on how can one actually be referred to as being fit. They certainly made me think. Great to see you at the Red Ribbon event earlier and you are indeed looking "fitter" than ever.

Rebecca said...

Jeff I think this is wonderful info and of course it's absolutely wonderful to be fit. Having said that, I would NEVER under any circumstances consume Del Monte fit N right. For one thing it contains an artificial sweetener, Sucralose,which is broken down "into small amounts of 1,6-dichlorofructose, a chemical which has not been adequtely tested in humans." It is also harmful to the environment. Sugar and artificial chemicals do not help anyone become fit or healthy, they do the opposite. Fresh, raw REAL foods create health.

magkano bayad ng fit-n-right sa endorsement ni Albert Martinez?

itot54joni said...

sinubukan ko din ito, effective nga.naiba ang pakiramdam ko after this workout.

Aethen said...

Go kuya Jeff! Feel and Be Fit 'n Right! It's the right to do it, and it's time to be fit.

Na-inspire naman ako sa post na 'to kuya! To be healthy (always) and fit is my priority din now. I will venture also for new sports next year.

Go!

leira said...

grabe!!! bilib talaga ako sa yo. is there anything you can't do?? basta great job and keep it up

wesley said...

It's always challenging to make time for workout in my already busy schedule. I love to run, but didn't realize that I could burn more calories by doing various exercises in 4-minutes! This gives me no more excuses to not workout. I consider myself dared to be "Fit and Right".

juliana said...

hi! Jeff

this is one tough regimen but I'm sure it can be done. commitment to get fit is all it takes, and you must have it in you.

unlike me, even if I'm a SAHW exercise is always on the last of my priority. it's my attitude towards fitness that hinders me from committing. I have hypertension (I've had it since I was 21) and this should really push me to go for it, but I'm stuck with my once a week gym time for now plus I do indoor walking with weights once a week using the Leslie Sansone video. I know that I should be doing more but I'm lazy hahaha.

good luck!

Gamaliel said...

Wow if doing those exercise in just a few minutes burn that much it makes me wanna do it too.

Scotty's Princess said...

It takes a lot of hard work, will and determination in order for one to be physically fit. Diet and exercise was once neglected by yours truly. Until I suffered from hypertension.

Looking back, that's where I realized how unhealthy my life was. No healthy diet, no regular exercise. Now I make it a point to do regular walking despite my tight schedule at work. I keep watch of my diet and do away from unhealthy foods. I should be doing more but like Juliana, I am too lazy, LOL!

But I want to be Fit N' Right for my Prince so i need to double my effort ;-) He has been encouraging me to be consistent with my push-ups and I am determined to do just that!

Jay-L said...

i think i should try it now that i have a flabby stomach

Lady Lyn said...

Wow! That was great Pastor Jeff! In fact when you demonstrated the F.I.T workout in one of the youth service at the church we were all sweating after the two minutes workout how much more if we try the four minutes for sure the end result will be “ we are all catching our breath”. Thank you for posting this it encouraged me to continue my plan to be “Fit ‘n Right for the upcoming 2010”. One thing I love the Del Monte Fit’N Right pineapple.

Geejay said...

wow.. i wanna try that po kuya jeff.. =] hehe if i'll survive.. haha

Pink said...

Mon said...

Fit 'N Right really works, and this man can prove it, He knows a lot of sports and he can do this because he's fit, and fit n right helps him.
Pastor Jeff! just always be fit in right..! :) take care!

Crouching Tiger said...

Charlie said...

This is a very challenging post. I always thought of myself as fit but after reading the list you shared, I second guessed myself.

Now I will dare myself to be fit! Is the drink you are prmoting available in New Zealand?

Jeff - This is an excellent post on the importance of staying fit. This is something that's a must for ones entire life. Staying fit will help you live longer as well. I'm in my late 50s and a healthy diet and exercise is part of my daily regimen. I salute you for your determination to stay fit and help others in that endeavor.

Have a terrific day. :)

Great tips! I'm excited to try it! - bon

@ Manila String Machine - lol! naunahan mo ko! Go Albert! :)

Evelyn said...

God bless you, Jeff as you strive to be fit and right!

fetus said...

i love the fit 'n right drink, especially four seasons.

BUT! i don't wanna be fit if that's the definition of fit. like the???

:)

Yljien said...

Wow! I like this post. It is really hard to allot some spare time for exercises. Everyone is always lacking time or in a hurry. The F.I.T workout is the solution for those who is busy as always and do not have the time to exercise.

Plus, it is nice that there's such a product like Fit n Right. Ingredients are natural and therefore healthy to the body.

Thanks for the demo and the post.

Have a nice day.

Thank you for daring us to be Fit 'n Right!

This is what we need. Someone to remind us of the benefits of exercising.

Your demo helps a lot. I like the FIT exercise because it can be done in just a few minutes.

And also, the Fit 'n Right drink is just fit and right. The ingredients are natural. Natural means healthy to take.

I'm not much of health buff, but I do like the taste of Del Monte Fit 'N Right. A lot more than I like Iced Tea, a tad more than I like Cola, much more than I like Fruit Shakes. Unfortunately, Beer still stands out in my book ... which should explain my opening statement. :)

But really, Fit'N Right is a great drink that helps you eliminate those excess fat build-ups SO AS LONG as you couple that with exercise. And I know that, because I do walk 2 to 4 miles twice a week. In fact, Walking is also a good way to get rid of those Holiday Bulge. Just ask your fat GF/Wife/Mistresses :) to walk 3 miles, twice a day. By the end of just one week, the cow will be 42 miles away. ;)

Anna said...

Keeping fit by doing some kind of exercise every day is important, but not everyone has the time to do sports. There is a lot that you can do in your everyday life to get some kind of excercise rather than none, such as walking instead of taking a bus or walking up and down stairs at home, as I do. My favourite kind of exercise is swimming.
Best wishes,
Anna

Kemp said...

Kuya Jeff, kailan ka ulit magp-practice with us? Wala pang tournament e, pero I'm glad that you are trying to stay fit.

Sana makuha nating sponsor ang FIt N Right sa team! Hehe.

FilipinaBeauties4u said...

Great campaign! I hope you dare a lot of people and they start working out and drinking Del Monte's Fit N Right!

Rose Ann said...

Hello po, Pastor Jeff! Nagulat ako sa demonstration niyo. Sinubukan ko mahirap pala.

Iinumin ko na lang yung fit and right kahit walang exercise (lol).

Gary said...

You have a very active blog, Jeff. It was nice to see you last week at our meeting.

I hope I still have the strength to exercise like how you demonstrated, but I think I don't. But my therapist gives me some simple exercises with my condition.

Sheng's Amazing World said...

Hey! I haven't blogged for along time, that's why I was surprised to hear from you.

I hope you win this contest. Great post, by the way. Very challenging!

Miss Elle said...

Thanks for frequently visiting my blog and for keeping me linked. I've been offline for a long time, but was awakened by your message.

May you win this contest! Good luck to you and to Del Monte Fit N Right.

Sveta said...

Good luck, my friend! It feels good to be fit. I was impressed by your video. Wonderful job!

Angel said...

This season is much colder than usual. Exercising can help us heat up and lose calories. I learned so much from this post.

Ang galing ng video! Sana may background music, "Let's Get Physical"

Ah well - a life of 39 years; and I didnt do anything to keep my body fit.
But it did change since October; started working out.
I feel much better (and I wasn't even feeling bad...) - AND I am even loosing a few pounds....

joy said...

hi jeff! your post is very informative and inspiring as well. it's a wake up call for me to have a healthier lifestyle specifically to get into exercise.

Race said...

your post is very inspiring especially for someone like me who's starting my own program of getting back into shape, i'm into my fourth week and i think i'm doing fine. I'm a sporty person but after marriage i stopped doing it. Now I just content myself with getting back into my walking exercise of 2 kms. a day, hope i can fit it in my busy sked. keep up the good work both physically and spiritually.

yashiro said...

Your post here is an inspiring one. I tried doing a routine workout but because of works and other stuff it seems that the supposedly routine becomes occasional. To share one good way to maintain your muscles if you're not having exercise regularly is to intense your muscles once in a while in that way the muscles will still be in good condition. That's what I've learned from my sensei way back college time.

uRieL said...

this post make me want to exercise more.. nice ^^

thankz for this helpful post ~
