Last March 23, after the Yakult Run at the CCP grounds (http://bicolanopenguin.blogspot.com/2014/03/2014-yakult-10-miler-run-pb-for-bp-son.html?utm_source=BP_recent), my son Marcel gifted his old man with a payment to the 2014 Pinoy Fitness Membership Package.
Perhaps it was his own way of soothing the Bicolano Penguin’s wounded pride in having been beaten again by BP Jr. He paid Php 500 to the courteous staff at the Pinoy Fitness Booth and we were promised that the package will be delivered in roughly 2 weeks time.
True enough, a blue parcel from Pinoy Fitness arrived at our Sucat office a week before Holy Week. Excited, the package was opened in no time and out came the following:
1. Limited edition 2014 Pinoy Fitness Flagship tee (with the customized nickname “BP” at the back of the shirt).
2. Membership Card.
The leadership of Pinoy Fitness saw it to fit to partner with some of the leading brands in the local running scene so that card holders can enjoy discounts, an all-time Pinoy favorite pastime. A sample of these brands include:
- Brooks: 15% OFF
- Berghaus: 15% OFF
- New Balance: 10% OFF
- Skechers: 10% OFF
- Merrell: 10% OFF
- Reebok: 25% OFF
-L-TimeStudio (SOLEUS, Asics, Puma, adidas, SOMA): 15% OFF

And a heartening bonus is the partnership forged with Bikes for the Philippines where part of the profits from the PF membership package will be donated to help provide bikes to public high school students who don’t have any means of transportation to go to school.

As for the flagship tee, it got its maiden deployment when the BP joined the Good Friday procession at the Our Lady of Fatima parish in Iriga. Not for running but for a religious activity in the fervent belief that it will be endowed with good fortune. That is how special all things yellow are to the penguin.
