The world’s number one sports drink, in partnership with Runrio, will once again hit the road for the second year of the Gatorade Run.
It will be held on November 27, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The run will have two distances—11K and 22K.
More than 6,000 runners registered in last year’s run which featured hydration stations where participants got pre-race hydration drinks, a post-run hydration test area where runners instantly learned about their hydration status, and a warm-up area where free sessions were available for those who wanted a full-on warm up activity before and after the run. Gatorade ambassadors Jeron Teng, Jaja Santiago, Chris Banchero, Jett Manuel and Ara Galang were among those who were present to support the runners.
This year’s run promises to be more exciting, while still focusing on the importance of pre- and post-run hydration. Pepsico Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde said, “Gatorade is a global leader in sports performance and we’ll definitely bring that expertise to the run. Learning the benefits of proper hydration is crucial for runners and we look forward to reinforcing that message through the Gatorade Run. We’re excited to show runners how, whether in sports hydration or a unique consumer experience, NOTHING BEATS GATORADE.”
Registration for the Gatorade Run 2016 will start on September 12. Log on to runrio.com for updates and to register.
Younger people are getting sick with degenerative diseases and it is increasingly becoming common among them to suffer because they are following an unhealthy lifestyle — they do not have the right nutrients that their bodies need from a proper diet and they lack exercise to keep their bodies in top shape.
Responding to this unpleasant trend among people young and old alike, Pillars 5, Inc. aims to foster health and wellness by bringing in all-natural food supplements that help the body to rebuild its immune system and restore it back to optimal health.
Through Pillars 5’s network of home-based entrepreneurs, the company’s passion for bringing back health to people has helped not only those in need to get back their lives from all the unhealthy practices, but also those people who have a dream of building their own businesses and achieve financial freedom. Pillars 5 is not shy to say that they are a multi-level marketing (MLM) company and it has been a big challenge for them, to differentiate themselves from most MLM companies and also to expunge the negative preconceived notions on the industry.
“MLM is an industry with a negative image because of how many of the companies in it has been operating. People have compromised their values and so the industry, as a whole, has been compromised. You will find many people being scammed by companies with less than superior products and dubious business practices,” explains Pillars 5 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ramon Garcia. The lack of regulations for the MLM industry does not help companies who do their best in building a better image for the industry, especially those with products that could really help people.
“On top of that, many people don’t have a good understanding of the MLM industry that they represent and are not able to communicate what their company has to offer. What we have set out to achieve is to build our business based on five core values: Servant Leadership, Humility, Excellence, Integrity, and Stewardship. Those core values are the uncompromising foundation of our business and, we believe, they will serve us very well now and in the future,” Mr. Garcia adds.
They pass on these core values to their home-based entrepreneurs— their distributors— by building a strong relationship and by educating them on how they can “add value” to their customer’s life. For Pillars 5, it is always the best to educate, train, and equip people so they will understand the business, do it the right way and make an honest living. Relationships drive everything else that happens after that and for Pillars 5, it’s about helping and supporting their distributors and their organizations to grow.
“We strive for consistency in what we say and do; staying focused on the company’s vision; staying true to our core values. Over time, this is how people will perceive us differently from the rest of the pack,” Mr. Garcia notes. “We differentiate ourselves from the rest by explaining how we do things differently, i.e., affordable entry into the business, product emphasis, no hard selling, no false claims and promises, no hype.”
When these relationships with their distributors have been solidified and imbibed with the company’s core values, it is almost always easy for the distributors to market their products sourced locally and internationally.
The Pillars 5 business is well-founded on products that are made from all-natural ingredients that can give people peace of mind on their usage of them. Unlike synthetic food supplements in the market, Pillars 5 food supplements come from whole foods. Because they are whole-foods based, the activities of the nutrients in their ingredients are kept intact to complement the natural mechanisms of the human body so that the cells in the body can use these nutrients readily.
Headlining their product line-up is Life Enzyme, a multi-nutrient supplement. It is sourced from 150 fruits, vegetables, and herbs that have been fermented for 365 days. This process magnifies the nutrients in these ingredients and through the beauty of biotechnology, makes them bio-available to the body. It is produced in Taiwan by their partner, Enzyme Village.
Nutrishuz Green Foods Health Drink and My TLC Essential Oils are formulated by their biochemistry expert consultant and produced in the Philippines. Nutrishuz is a delicious veggie drink ideal for people who are always on the go – an energy booster and contains ingredients good at detoxifying and strengthening the immune system. Even kids rave about it. My TLC, on the other hand, is an aromatherapy product. A great home remedy for common ailments, it is applied topically or inhaled, and is a must to carry in your bag or pocket. It is powerful because it already makes use of the very essence of a plant in addressing health issues.
The Souq Moroccan Argan Oil is sourced from Morocco, comes purely from the Argan nut, and undergoes pressing from organically certified operations. It is beauty product that rejuvenates the skin, hair, and nails.
Their customers give all positive feedbacks but Mr. Garcia constantly reminds that their products are not cures or treatments for illnesses, but emphasized what Pillars 5 products do very well, “to rebuild and restore.” We help rebuild the immune system so that the immune system will restore the person back to optimal health. Our body is the intelligent healer, not the products. What our products do is give the body what it needs to heal and repair itself.”
Pillars 5 is a company that provides an opportunity not only for those who would want to regain their optimal health back, but also for those who would want to build on their dreams. The road will definitely not be easy, as they face many challenges in building each other’s dreams while at the same time helping change an unhealthy world. Challenges can be met and inspiration ripples through others, motivating them to push on. “We are in the throes of a health revolution and we want to lead it,” Mr. Garcia says.

Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) is bringing the thrill of racing to the country as it unveils today its newest Honda Gen S sports motorcycle model – the all-new Honda CBR150R.
HPI is giving the local market the chance to experience the speed and power of its latest racing machine, to meet the demand of Filipino riders for a high-quality sports bike.
The all-new Honda CBR150R sports an aggressive design. Its dual keen eye headlight exemplifies its sleek and sporty exterior along with its side cowl, rear side cowl, and new stylish muffler.
Inspired by MotoGP DNA, the all-new Honda CBR150R is equipped with a 150cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC – 4 valve engine that delivers up to 12.6kW/ 9,000rpm max power and 13.0 Nm/7,500 rpm max power of torque. Thanks to PGM-FI fuel supply system, which complies with EURO3 emission standard, the all-new Honda CBR150R’s engine is fuel-efficient and environment-friendly.

After a big reveal that showcased a body reinvented by Century Tuna, stopped EDSA traffic, and sent fans on a social media frenzy, top actor James Reid appears anew in a TV commercial that gives a glimpse on how thinking like a champion has brought him to where he is now.
There’s no denying that James Reid is one of the hottest young actors today. He’s a social media phenomenon—with millions of followers online, not counting the various fan accounts that his devoted followers set up. The highly bankable love team JaDine, in which he is paired with his reel and real life partner Nadine Lustre, has sent their legions of fans in a frenzy, whether in mall tours, concerts, meet and greets, and even online where they are constant trending topics.
There are his chart-topping albums including Reid Alert which hit certified platinum level status last May. Then there are his box-office film successes—the 2014 romantic comedy and his launch movie Diary ng Panget; and Talk Back and You’re Dead, the teen romance flick that followed a year later. No doubt, his biggest hit to date is On the Wings of Love, the top-rating primetime series with Nadine that kept viewers glued to their TV sets until its sensational finale.
Clearly, James Reid is on a winning streak and his steady career path is one that is marked by a succession of winning moves. Recently, he joined the ranks of Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsey as endorser of Century Tuna, the country’s number one tuna.
Becoming part of the Century Tuna family has certainly paid off for the young hunk. He is presently at his fittest—sculpted abs, toned muscles, firm biceps—which can be attributed to a rigorous fitness regimen and a proper diet consisting of good protein that Century Tuna can provide. It’s no surprise then that James headlines their latest campaign, where he appears in a series of sizzling television commercials: the first, a TV spot focusing on metamorphosis that sent his fans in a frenzy and created a sensation; the second, which is presently airing, revolves around the idea of commitment and loyalty.
Century Tuna couldn’t be happier for having James in its roster of celebrity endorsers. From the very beginning, they already saw a champion in him. “His story is truly inspiring,” said Greg Banzon, Century Tuna General Manager. “It speaks of transformation, the relentless desire to improve oneself. It’s a winning formula that brings many positive lessons for everyone: perseverance, keeping the faith, while staying humble and true to yourself—qualities that make James a true role model.”
Meanwhile, for James, it’s really all about trust. “I liken it to a championship game,” he reveals. “If you want to win, you naturally want to surround yourself with a teammate you can put your total faith into. That to me is Century Tuna, and I can’t think of any other name that I’d trust to keep my body fit.”
With bated breath, we watch as James continues to transform—from a teen heartthrob to a more mature actor with the determination, the attitude and the body to conquer and win in the challenging world of show business.
