Richmonde Hotel Ortigas Summer Promo

Almost a year ago, my hubby Mike and I vowed that we will trim our waistlines. How we will do it, we have no idea at that time. However, we do know for sure that we will not enroll in Fitness First or in any other gym since we both hate repetitive exercises…we simply do not have the discipline for them. And so after considering a thousand other ways to trim the tummy, we finally agreed to have swimming as our form of exercise! Yey!

We searched high and low for the perfect pool. Our choices ranged from the cheapest – Ateneo Grade School Pool,  to the totally expensive – Planet Infinity. And finally, we found our perfect pool at Richmonde Hotel’s Health Club in Ortigas, Pasig.

I fell in love with Richmonde Hotel’s pool the first time I saw it. It is indoors, absolutely clean, and the water is heated! Yup, heated! More importantly, it is rather deserted; you get to have it all by yourself, which is great for doing laps. You can also take your time in the saunas inside the spacious shower rooms where there’s more than enough cubicles for you and a couple of other people, there’s no queue at all! As value added service, they also provide you with fresh towels. As many of them as you want, actually. You can forget about bringing your oversized gym bag all the time. Oh, they have a gym too, which I cannot elaborate on since I did not use it even once. Hihihi! Here, take a look at their gym and pool:

Now, the reason I’m writing about all this is because Richmonde Hotel’s Health Club has an on-going summer promo. You can avail of their pool and gym facilities for only P5,000 for three months, April 1 – June 30, from Mondays thru Fridays. This is a great deal! I remember paying so much more! Tsk, tsk, tsk…sayang!

To the people out there who are not so into lifting weights and doing the treadmill, swimming is a fun alternative. I hope this post will help you in initiating a healthier lifestyle…with a healthier pocket too!

Au revoir!
