HANGTUFF FITNESS : And A Zumba-mazing Experience


After giving birth, my quest for a fit body was sort of put in the back burner. I figured, it would "just happen" but deep inside I knew, that was impossible!

I have tried everything and I am still trying. My fats have taken permanent residence in my body and I am hopeless. But deep inside I knew, I have to keep moving. I have to burn the fats and work hard to get that leaner, healthier body that I am dreaming of. 


So almost 2 years and a few pounds later, I am back to where I started - in search of a slimmer, healthier body. Lucky me, I was invited by Tonette of Health Junkie PH to join a bloggers night + workout at Hangtuff Fitness.

Situated at Jupiter Street, Makati City, the first thing I noticed about Hangtuff Fitness 
is their very simple facade. You won't even notice it at first unless you read that giant GYM sign at the door. That was already a + sign for me, simple, no frills and unintimidating gym. I said to myself, I might just love this place. And I did!

Here's a brief background about Hangtuff Fitness Gym:

I together with other bloggers were invited to try their workouts for one night. And my most liked was the Zumba dancing slash Hip Hop Dance workout. I worked up a sweat! It was groovy, fun and exciting! Something I plan to do as a regular workout. 

That's me with Tonette of Health Junkie who kindly extended the invite. Sweatin'


What I like about the place is that it's within reach from where I live and that they offer affordable workouts and use of their facilities.

Let me quote the Hangtuff Team:

"At Hangtuff Fitness, we work on feeding the mind as well as exercising the body. We use good old fashion friendship, encouragement from both fellow gym goers, colleagues as well as our staff to get you started and keep you on track"

And who doesn't want to have a workout buddy right? 

"Class based training means our instructors are there for every minute of your class. Ensuring that you are exercising correctly and getting the best possible results from every minute you spend training." 

Personal touch. That's should be the top on our list when we are looking for a gym, right? What better way to burn those unwanted fats and be more fit and healthy than working out with a friend? They offer that at  Hangtuff Fitness

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!


  1. Saya naman! I'm also looking for Zumba classes in our area and within the time (and budget) available.

  2. It’s fun! And the more fun you have, the more likely you are to want to keep doing it. Many people say they have so much fun dancing that they forget they are actually exercising.

    Great for weight loss. Zumba is a powerful exercise with a 600 to 1,000-calorie burn in just an hour.

    Tones your entire body. You may feel sore in places you never knew existed, but it gets results. Zumba targets lots of different muscle groups at once for total body toning.

  3. In addition, the fitness book should discuss the direct benefits of any exercise to a golf swing. Many people are motivated to use an exercise or an exercise program once they read and understand how it will benefit their game.
