Nova Active Pass: Pound Rockout

Throughout April, the Pound Rockout classes at Elorde Gym in Katipunan, Quezon City, provided the perfect atmosphere for letting loose, getting energized, toning up, and rocking out. Using a pair of “ripstix”, guests followed the coach in movements combining drumming with conditioning, yoga, and pilates.

“Everybody wants to try something new, something different. And we all want to live happy, healthy lives, and we all want to try something new every few months,” said Nova Active Pass ambassador Bea Benedicto when asked why she thinks people should try out the Nova’s series of programs.

Bea, along with her co-ambassador Martin Javier, joined the final class of the Pound Rockout series last April 13. Martin shared, “Aside from giving people opportunities to workout and live an active lifestyle, we also give them opportunities to try other types of workouts.”

Led by Coach Richard, the culmination of Pound Rockout series offered a fun 45-minute rhythmic exercise where participants rocked to anything and everything - from Ariana Grande to The Greatest Showman. The activity went from toning up the legs and upper body, to the glutes, and eventually ending with a core workout - perfect for anyone chasing that summer bod. Just as Martin shared, the workout was definitely challenging, but the music and party atmosphere made you forget you were burning tons of calories.

In the end, Bea and Martin were asked to describe Nova Active Pass in just three words each:

“Fun. Intense. Fulfilling.” - Martin

“Happy. Friendly. Challenging.” - Bea

Nova Active Pass makes it easy for anyone to stay active by trying out new workout sessions people may have been intimidated by. Its classes provide a friendly and encouraging atmosphere, and is suitable for people of all fitness levels. So, whether a participant is a beginner or a pro, the instructors ensured the attendees experience a fun, challenging and rewarding way to reach their workout goals.

The second year of Nova Active Pass kick-started last 2018 by offering trampoline, archery, spinning, wall climbing, Frisbee and hiphop dance classes. The best part is, all sessions were for free.

This June, Nova Active Pass partnered with Climb Central Manila to hold wall climbing classes in Greenfield in Mandaluyong City, every Saturday, from June 8 to 29. Stay tuned for more updates from Nova by keeping an eye out on their Facebook page. Until then, #LiveTheNOVALife!
