The shoot of the Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Primer at Gold’s Gym Acropolis (Photo credit: Angelo Mendez)
Bb. Pilipinas 2016 has started shooting for the pageant primer to be aired on ABS-CBN by early April. My friend, Angelo Mendez – Marketing Manager of Gold’s Gym – uploaded the photo above of the filming made at the fitness hub’s Acropolis branch.
It won’t take too long before we see them doing the usual visits to the sponsors and supporters of the competition, including a scheduled trip to a beach out of town. This should also form part of the OBB that will be used for the finals.
Watch out for my upcoming blog posts about the personal accounts of the other Binibinis on how their journey has been so far. I started with Binibini 26 Jennifer Hammond earlier today. The rest will follow in succession soon! 🙂

It’s never easy joining Bb. Pilipinas, let alone taking part in any respectable beauty pageant of regional or national scope for that matter. The days and nights of constant coaching/training, hours upon hours of strict fitness routines in the gym, measured meals with highly-targetted nutritional value and sustaining a winner’s disposition all throughout are more than enough to break down the less-disciplined wannabes from the dedicated joiners.
Kagandahang Flores (or KF) has already collected years of experience and expertise in transforming simple but very promising Filipinas into fierce soldiers of beauty. And the group is nearing the final touches on the group of women who will be fielded for Bb. Pilipinas 2016.
At Gold’s Gym, coach Bench Ortiz and Marketing Manager Angelo Mendez have teamed up to supervise and meticulously train the KF bets in preparation for the screening and eventual acceptance as Official Candidates for this year’s batch. It’s more than just achieving the right bodies, but also maintaining a fit and healthy mind in maintaining the “pageant-beast” mode in all aspects.
In just a few weeks from now, you will see the final results. And boy, you will definitely applaud their efforts in reaching the best versions of themselves. 🙂

Thank God it’s Friday, dear readers! Start of another long weekend for everyone in the Philippines.
For today, we really have to thank Gold’s Gym for taking care of the health and fitness needs of our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens. Take for example Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina. She has been silently going through all her exercise and weight routines without fail. Thanks to Angelo Mendez, Marketing Manager of Gold’s Gym Philippines, for taking quick snapshots of our beautiful Miss International 2015 bet who is getting stronger and sexier by the day.
Gold’s Gym, you’re the best! 😀

What’s up with Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2015 Rogelie Catacutan nowadays? A lot. Aside from fulfilling her duties and responsibilities to BPCI, our lovely Cebuana
has been constantly devoting much of her free time from personal appearances and the like to constant workouts in the gym and dedicated fitness training with Bench Ortiz of Gold’s Gym. And this girl doesn’t mind if she’s not hitting 100% energy and perkiness during her scheduled sessions. She knows fully well that there is no room for laziness whatsoever.
Rogelie’s eyes are on Krakow, Poland and how she will transform herself to the ultra-competitive Philippine representative for Miss Supranational 2015 scheduled on December 4 at the Sports Hall in Krynica-Zdroj for the second year in a row. But prior to that, all pre-pageant activities will take place in the Malopolska Region (or Lesser Poland) where Krakow is the capital city.

Keep up with the instilled discipline, Rogelie, and you will definitely reap the rewards of your hard work before Christmas this year!
I know that you want to continue bringing more honor to your fellow Cebuanos and the rest of the country. And your Tito @normant will be supporting you all the way!
The Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Official Candidates attend a calorie-burning workout session with Bench Ortiz of Gold's Gym
This time, it'a fitness and wellness lecture with John Cuay, also of Gold's Gym
Fit and fab Binibinis are happy Binibinis
Burn, calories, burn!
There is unity in fitness when it comes to Bb. Pilipinas 2015. Both John Cuay and Bench Ortiz are identified with Gold’s Gym. But separately, they are more representative of two different beauty camps – the former with Aces & Queens, the latter with Kagandahang Flores. All for the love of the Binibinis, though, they guided the ladies in a day of all-important workout, exercise and lecture.
And why not? Whoever will win among the thirty-four (34) contenders regardless of their affiliations will be holding missions #ForThePhilippines.
Let’s now watch a video of the heart-thumping session with Bench Ortiz. 🙂

Work it out, Binibinis!
“A good workout is when you hate doing it, but love finishing it.” – John Jay Cuay
Gold’s Gym at Acropolis was the venue for the intense workout of the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Official Candidates. With Fitness Guru John Jay Cuay leading the charge of conducting a health and exercise lecture, followed by two calorie-burning body jam-type/zumba classes, and a penetrating routine of push-ups, sit-ups and body stretching on the mat, it was the best gym time the ladies have ever gone through in the past weeks. With Angelo Mendez covering the activity with his ever-trusty camera, the beauties posed without worries of sweat trickling down their faces and yellow tops. I’m sweating just describing what they did. Better look at the photos instead.
