Alongside to the other causes which I hope I'd be able to help full time, I am proud knowing I've been chosen by Curves Philippines to be their ambassador towards helping women hop into an active lifestyle: 30 minutes, 30 days, a lifetime change.
Fe Abrihan, Manager of Curves BGC, said: “Fundraising for breast cancer charities is something which unites the Curves community globally and we’re delighted to be able to support Sagip Buhay Medical Foundation Inc.
“With one in eight women at risk of developing breast cancer in her life, Curves and its members cannot afford to ignore such a pertinent health matter,” said Abrihan. We are committed to not only support research through funding, but also to increase awareness by encouraging our new and existing members to be breast aware and to lower their risk through exercise.”
Curves is a facility especially designed for women featuring a complete 30-minute cardio and strength-training program that has been proven to be clinically effective with a positive effect on body composition, metabolism, and resting heart rate. Curves appeals to women of all ages who want a fitness routine that differs from typical gyms, struggle with their weight and fitness, find attending traditional gyms very intimidating, or due to cultural beliefs find exercising in a mixed environment impossible. Founders Gary and Diane Heavin are considered the innovators of the express fitness phenomenon that has made exercise available to millions of women globally, many of whom are in the gym for the first time.
“You start out motivated but the voice of failure whispers to you. Here’s how to listen for success.”
Years ago an experiment was conducted in several grade schools. Half of the teachers were told their students were overachievers with supportive families. The others were told they had all underachievers with apathetic families. In reality, both groups were equal, the only difference was the expectation of the teachers. The test scores for the “underachievers” dropped 25 points. The “overachievers” increased 50 points. Known as the Pygmalion Effect, the experiment showed how critical your view of something is and how you’ll react accordingly. How does the Pygmalion Effect show up in your life? It boils down to a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. Label yourself a winner and you’re far more likely to succeed. Tune into only positive messages about yourself and your efforts (especially the ones in your own head) and see how your life is positively affected.
