This year's Healthy Life, Happy Life event kicked off last Saturday, September 20, in Ayala Center Cebu's Activity Center. The first part of the health and fitness exhibit was graced with yoga enthusiasts wanting to participate in the free yoga session and showing support to some of Cebu's yoga practitioners who led the yoga class. The whole Activity Center was also filled with booths from different companies, namely; Sun Star Cebu, Fern-C, Farm to Table PH, Redeemed Tattoo, Backjoy, Yogatree, and Cebu Jobs, among others. A wide range of health and fitness booths were set up in The Terraces as well, giving the mall goers a chance to enjoy different kinds of freebies and activities! Here's how the rest of day 1 went:
- Healthy Food Cooking Demo by Chef Chip Lopez

Aside from this series of activities, there was also a special fitness workout conducted by the Health and Wellness expert, Lita Quisumbing. This was to give senior citizens and PWDs some ideal exercise routines. Let these photos tell you the rest of the story. 😉
Day 2 last Sunday was even more fun with the presence of none other than the Dance Princess herself, Ms Maja Salvador! Her performance during the last part of the programme also served as a launching of her new album as well as a meet and greet opportunity for all of her Cebuano fans.
The event also featured some well-recognized personalities in and out of Cebu, such as Metafit Metabolic Fitness Camp's Coach Allan Coachuy, one of the finalists of the Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Season 1, and the fit Antonio Aquitania from the popular gag show of GMA, “Bubble Gang”. MagTV Na's host, Jonathan Cimafranca, was also present to serve as the programme's emcee.
Another activity that made the event extremely fun was the free Zumba party held at The Terraces on Saturday and Sunday nights.
Thanks to the local performers, health and fitness enthusiasts, food and nutrition experts, and health and wellness companies who were present in the 2-day event, the Healthy Life, Happy Life 2014 was a huge success! Looking forward to the next health and fitness event that Healthy Food-Lifestyle & Fitness Movement PH will organize not just for Cebuanos but for all Filipinos wanting to jumpstart a healthier and happier life.
