Zumbarangay Pilipinas to promote physical fitness
The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) will launch a nationwide exercise campaign called the Zumbarangay Pilipinas with an original Filipino workout song “Igalaw Galaw Ating Katawan” on April 10, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
“Once we get motivated to move our bodies, exercising can make a big difference; it changes our mood,” PSC chairman William ‘Butch’ Ramirez said in a news release on Thursday.
The sports agency aims to underline the importance of physical fitness, especially in these trying times of the pandemic.
The Zumbaranggay Pilipinas project is a contest of a solo dance performance done either at home or in an open space. Participants have to record their original dance exercise moves, form, and style to the beat of “Igalaw Galaw Ating Katawan” which may be downloaded on the agency’s website at psc.gov.ph or its social media pages.
Workout music has a therapeutic ability to treat physical, psychological, emotional, and mental issues such as depression and anxiety.
This project is being organized under the “Women in Sports” program of the Commission supervised by the Office of Commissioner Celia Kiram.
“This contest is PSC’s campaign to raise awareness on the value of solo dance fitness workouts. We designed this to provide a recreational activity for women and girls given the alarming increase in the number of cases whose well-being has been negatively affected by the pandemic,” Kiram said.
