Work in Makati? Now workout in Makati

The top 10 alternative fitness and health places in Makati
Phenom Fitness

It’s estimated that about one million people descend on Makati every day to work. This has led to many fond descriptions of the resultant daily traffic, from “Carmageddon” to any number of unprintable one-liners laced with fiery four-letter words.

Until the government solves the traffic problem, Makati-based employees are going to have to find other ways to survive the daily grind. One way to do this? Head to the gym after work.

Nothing beats dealing with pent-up road rage than an hour of CrossFit, cardio, or martial arts. And with plenty of fitness outlets in Makati offering great facilities at decent rates, you’ve got nothing to lose (except fat and anger) and everything to gain (including muscles and a generally more positive outlook in life).

Below are the top ten alternative fitness/health/exercise places in Makati. Alternative, because listing the usual big-brand gyms is easy and somewhat bland. The goal is to escape the monotonous traffic and develop a healthy workout habit; might as well go somewhere with a bit of personality!

1. Phenom Fitness

Gym? Sports center? Phenom sports center is not your average gym or sports center, it combines the best of both worlds. Phenom Fitness is the home of intense workouts with a repertoire of equipment for the intent customer. 
 
The sports center features the first and only complete basketball performance hub in the Philippines, so budding athletes have access to facilities featuring a half-court training court and a full court to test your skills. 
 
The coaches are best of class, ensuring you get a phenomenal workout and athletes reach their optimum performance, as one enthusiast client  told us  “Coaches are extremely knowledgeable and highly motivated”. 
 
Just what you need to whip your body into tip-top shape.
