The Group 2 ladies of Miss Earth 2009 participated in a fitness event sponsored by Nesvita. They had a fun time doing some much-needed sweating and workout for their bodies, capped by body jam sessions where they did some fitness routines through dance as conducted by Fitness First trainers.

After the quick but fierce invasion of Supertyphoon Santi which caused delays in the arrival of flights into the Philippines late Friday evening till Saturday morning last week, the girls of Miss Earth 2009 have started to arrive. In particular, three early birds (Misses USA, Sweden and South Africa) checked-in before the bad weather made its landfall so they were spared the hassle of long layovers for their connecting flights to Manila. They are currently housed at the Carousel Gardens before checking in as a group at Discovery Suites today or tomorrow. Here are some photos of the girls already in town for the competition.
