The Sporting Life at the Podium


Advertising and media exec Manu Sandejas is a boxing buff who throws in the punches about three times a week.

When not handling the admin functions in her school, Andi HerreraBenitez would head for the beach to surf.

Sheryl Louise or Crystal (as shes known to Magic 89.9 listeners) is a multi task master whos single minded on one sport mountain climbing.

While they all have different preferences, Manu, Andi, and Crystal agree that indulging in sports is a lifestyle that even becomes more exciting with ones dream gear.

We asked them to go around the tony sports stores at The Podium, the upscale mall in the Ortigas Center, and here are their personal picks:

ANDIS SHORE THINGS

Whenever Andi HerreraBenitez would hear news of an impending weather disturbance, she and her boyfriend (now husband) and friends would grab their surfboards and head to the beach.

Andi, who owns and acts as administrator of the Academy of Manila School for the Talented and Gifted says that she got into surfing from her husband, who had learned the sport in Hawaii.

"Its actually quite easy to learn. When you learn to stand on the board, its thrilling. Its like walking on water."

Here are her shore things:

l Oakley Ocean UPF 50+ rash guard from GForce.

"I usually wear this over my swimsuit so I dont get my skin burnt while on the board. Waiting for a good wave takes some time, so the suns really beating down on you. The rash guard has an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+ so that really helps."

l Avocado and olive treatment shampoo, Nivea sunblock lotion and lip care from Watsons. "I use the shampoo to protect my hair from sun damage. The sun block and lip care is for intensive protection from all those harmful UV rays."

l Billabong Neptune bikini and Sweet Dreams Boardshorts from Sessions by Stoked. Great for days on the beach."

l Billabong rebel printed velour towel from Sessions by Stoked. "Its so soft, a great way to dry up."

l Junior Triax digital watch from Nike. "Its water resistant, and it can go down to 50 meters. Thats really cool."

MANUS COOL COUNTDOWN

Manu Sandejas says "boxing is perfect when you dont have much time. One hour is all you need its a great total body workout and stress buster."

After a round of meetings, shoots, and client calls, he takes time out to box.

"There are no distractions its just me and my gloves and the trainer," he said.

When his schedule permits, he boxes three times a week at Red Corner in Libis.

Here are Manus winning picks.

l Zoom Trainer LA and Shoe Bag from Nike.

"Nike is great in clothing and footwear technology, from materials to designs. Their shoes not only feel great, but make me very secure with my footing.
