Last 2010, in an era of traditional, full-scale gyms complete with treadmills and weight machines, 360 introduced a 30-minute, no machines circuit training program to the commercial gym market, revolutionizing the local fitness industry. When they opened, people wouldn't believe they were operational because of their no machine, smaller space set up! Their fast, fun, and effective core program, backed by a team of qualified coaches, however, drew gym goers to complete the circuit--- and the rest was history.

360 has now 6 branches (Ortigas, Makati, Timog, BGC Fort, Alabang and Pioneer. The latest addition to their roster of highly commendable facilities and fitness programs just opened this month which is 360PRO in Pioneer, Mandaluyong City.

Gantimpala Theater Foundation Inc.'s Florante at Laura sets to open on July 31!

Gantimpala Theater Foundation Inc. proudly presents its 38th season opening production Francisco Balagtas’ “FLORANTE AT LAURA” -- one of the most enduring Filipino literary masterpieces described by many as a poetic art that examines the nature of justice, truth and commitment to fairness, written into a play by award-winning and respected playwright Boni Ilagan, with multi-awarded actor, Roeder Camañag as its director.

The famous Filipino love story uses the theater form of the ‘komedya’ complete with its majestic marches and grand batalia. See how the love of florante, laura, Aladin and Flerida conqyered the warring Moors and Christians.

“Boni Ilagan wrote such a superb script!” exclaims director Camañag. “His interpretation of the classic focuses on the many facets of love — from its purest form to its most corrupted version. His understanding of Balagtas’ words allows audiences the opportunities to witness Florante’s encounters with love — his love for knowledge, his love for his parents, his brotherly love for his best friend Minandro, his romantic love for Laura, his love for his enemies, and ultimately, the love for his country and the Higher Cause.” 

“We are highlighting the beauty of the language and the elements of komedya,” he continues. “What we give the public now is a tribute to Florante and Laura, as literary characters, a tribute to Francisco Balagtas and his mastery of the Tagalog language, and a tribute to the komedya, which is a true Filipino theater form.

We are pushing them, bringing out their best.” Playing the Albanian prince Florante is Paul Jake Paule. Ellrica Laguardia portrays Laura, princess and Florante’s sweetheart. “If I were to describe my leads, they are the perfect personification of the values, virtues and symbols of Balagtas’ written texts, Paul Jake exudes regal air, bravery and sincerity while Ellrica is passionate, fiery and strikingly beautiful.”

The supporting cast include Ku Aquino (Haring Linceo/Sultan Ali-Adab), Billy Parjan (Duke Briseo), Julena Dondon (Reyna Floresca), Morris Sevilla (Menandro), Basty Batistis (Antenor), and King Urieta (Makata).
