PSC’s Rise Up! Shape Up! shares physical fitness tips for the elderly

THE Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) in line with its mandate, encourages people of all ages to be active, get fit and have fun through sports and other physical activities. Following the previous episode focused on kids, PSC’s web series Rise Up! Shape Up! dedicates its June 18 episode to seniors and the elderly to help them achieve a healthy and active lifestyle.

Featured in the episode are four-time World Champion Filipino Bowler Bong Coo and Philippine Gymnastics Association of the Philippines president Cynthia Carrion. Both will share tips on aging gracefully, staying fit, and living a healthy lifestyle.

UP Diliman Associate Professor Dr. Maria Luisa Guinto will also be discussing the psychological aspects of aging, while Adventist Hospital-Santiago City Geriatrician Dr. Florosita Reyes will share tips on health care for the elderly.

PSC Women in Sports Oversight Commissioner Celia H. Kiram stresses the importance of a fit and healthy lifestyle especially when one gets older. “As we age, our bodies change. But we can help our bodies ease into aging through exercise and a healthy diet.”

She adds that the elderly must also ensure their overall well-being and take into consideration mental and emotional wellness.

The Rise Up! Shape Up! episode will be hosted by Bam Mogato, a certified fitness instructor of the American Council on Exercise. Mogato also joined the board of jurors during the Zumbarangay Dance Challenge organized by the PSC-Women in Sports last year.

PSC’s Rise Up! Shape Up! is a weekly web series streamed via Facebook and YouTube every Saturday and Sunday at 7 PM. For more information on Rise Up! Shape Up!, visit its official Facebook page at  and YouTube page
