    Aside from the Philippine Colombian Association and Amoranto Sports Complex, where else can members go swimming and hire trainers? I'm inspired to get fit (haha) and get that really nicely toned swimmer's body. So many other things that can happen in the pool too!;)

    ULTRA in Pasig. Entrance to pool @ 42. Open Tue-Sun; 8:30-11:30 am then 1:30-4:30 pm.

    I was quoted 3,500 for 10 sessions by a manong lifeguard before.

    I thought this thread organizes a swimming get together for the muggers, haha.
    Anyway, swimming is really a good way to trim down your body.
    You get to enjoy na with swimming, you get advantageous physical results pa.

    You can try Makati Aqua Sports Arena (MASA), located at west rembo makati, near University of Makati and Makati Park and Garden. It's a public pool, 50 pesos entrance for makati resident and 100 ( i guess, i have to check first to confirm) for non residents. 50-meters lap pool with 8 lanes and a kiddie pool with a little less than 25-meters. I can say that the pool there is clean. My son is a member of the makati skipjacks swim club and they train there every afternoon except sundays. Open tuesday-sunday, 6am-8 or 9pm. :D

    OT: if you happen to swim or take lessons at the ultra on thursdays, you might just be able to catch the philippine underwater hockey confed practicing there thursday nights at around 7 or 8 pm.... its a good watch and work out!

    BTT: you can also try the AFP pool, i just dunno how much the charge is.

    @kies

    ...Just recently discovered that a "popular" swimming school doesn't train their instructors basic CPR...

    Not that i didn't have confidence that the instructors could save the students before this is needed...but the person i discovered didn't even know what "CPR STANDS FOR" gave me second thoughts on enrolling in their program...

    Hope those with no idea at all (in swimming, or being around water)take this into consideration before enrolling for lessons private of otherwise...

    As from my statement it was really an eye-opener for me... also been to some beaches which doesn't have any "lifeguard" at all...maybe it's just an "unspoken" rule for those with no experience to have "common sense" since we are in a "third world country" and should "instantly" know our own limitations...still small infractions like this is what i hope in the future would be "fixed" and soon...
