This new branch has clean, crisp interiors. I never got to see the Taguig branch when it was still open, and now I haven’t seen the Makati branch yet.
For those who are interested in classes, here are the rates. They still have plenty of super sweet Early Bird promotions ongoing so now is a reaaally good time to start trying the classes and seeing if long term plans are good for you.
Bea is also no newbie to the fitness game. If you can recognize her, it’s either because you loved her as a UAAP basketball player for UP or because of her hosting at UAAP Upfront. We know each other from awhile back and I was so happy and surprised that this was her event (I got invited by the people from MFT so I didn’t know). Bea is the right person to do this kind of business because she’s a CPA and she has an obviously very admirable athletic background. She may be small, but she’s got a very strong and lean physique. And I think most of the people who’d want to attend these classes are those trying to achieve similar results.
Coach Nash is now here and class has started. They are using their weights here first, but later on there’d also be barre training and the like. Contrary to other classes, they’re using slip resistant socks. I guess it’s easier to do barre training without shoes on.
The format is that there’s upbeat music playing and the coach gives out instructions as he demonstrates them. The class follows more or less at the same time as the coach as he’s talking as he is doing. These are among just a few stills, but if you’re in the actual class you’d see that they go everywhere, move around, squat, bend, and do so much. I perfectly understand how this can achieve so much in 55 minutes.
They have plenty of classes under the Forma franchise that target various concerns. There’s Forma Core (inspired by Pilates), Forma Pointe (inspired by ballet), Forma Flow (inspired by yoga), and there are plenty of other exercise concepts that they infuse to their classes. Forma is not just 1 kind of exercise. I think the right way to put the Plana Forma franchise is that it’s a class franchise for people to be able to have the best that most exercise classes have to offer in most gyms. The key difference is that they take the best and most effective aspects of the exercise formats in order to make one’s hour worthwhile.
