    In a couple of months,it will be time to hit the beach once more! And while we all would like to encourage all moms and dads to be proud and flaunt their motherhood stripes (a.k.a. flabs and curves), deep inside we all want a fitter, leaner bod we can flaunt with confidence. Here's good news: there's still time to do that! Here are a couple of services you can use to prepare your body for swimsuit season. 

    1. GuavaPass

    Exercising is definitely one of the top things you can do to be fit. If you're thinking of getting more active, check out GuavaPass. It's an international fitness platform that lets you take classes with its partner studios on a variety of exercise regimens, like yoga, kickboxing, dancing, CrossFit, Pilates, and a bunch more.

    2. Eat Clean Love



    Aside from exercising, eating healthy is also a key factor in getting fit. For those who love to cook, we recommend The Sexy Chef Cookbook: Eat Clean Love, a cookbook with recipes from Chef Barni Alejandro-Rennebeck and sexy tips from Rachel Alejandro.

    You’ll never think of biking as boring again after trying out the Bambike Ecotour. Give your legs a workout while cruising through the sights of Intramuros on a bamboo bike (handmade by Gawad Kalinga villagers)! The tour moves through the old walled city while guides teach visitors about Philippine history. It’s good for weekends when you’re looking for something relaxing and don’t really feel like getting into anything too intense. 

    You can choose between a one-hour tour for P600 per person or a two-and-a-half-hour tour for P1,200 per person. They have schedules at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and bike rentals are at P300 per hour. It’s even better if you can bring the big kids along with you! For more details, visit Bambike.com/Ecotours
