MILO Summer Sports Clinic 2015

MILO once again makes summer the perfect time for children to learn a new sport with the MILO Summer Sports Clinics, the most widely participated sports program in the country. With its commitment to discovering and developing tomorrow’s champion athletes, MILO encourages school children to make the most of their summer vacation by learning sports and taking on new challenges.

From April to May of this year, the MILO Summer Sports Clinics program offers immersive training in 14 sporting disciplines, namely Badminton, Basketball, Bowling, Gymnastics, Volleyball, Karatedo, Ice Skating, Tennis, Taekwondo, Table Tennis, Touch Rugby, Chess, Football, and Swimming. Touch Rugby is the latest addition in MILO’s roster of sports this year. MILO has partnered with the Philippine Rugby Football Union in an effort to introduce the sport and provide children an avenue for training, with the hopes of serving as a springboard to the Youth Olympic Games, wherein Rugby 7s is a sport. The clinics will be available in over 700 venues to 30,000 students nationwide.

Start your child’s champion journey today and enroll them in the MILO Summer Sports Clinics. Each sports clinic has an array of schedules and venues children and their parents can choose from. Training is handled by able and expert coaches and instructors who use the modern, scientific approach, with character-forming lessons incorporated in their program. Children will not only learn champion moves but also champion values such as determination, discipline, teamwork, perseverance, hard work, respect, and confidence, which will help them become winners on and off the court.

“The MILO Summer Sports Clinics is an avenue for children to learn the fundamentals of sports and be encouraged to lead an active lifestyle. They will be able to learn new skills, while making new friends along the way,” said Robbie De Vera, MILO Sports Executive.

MILO’s Summer Sports Clinics and sponsored programs have produced many athletes who have made their mark in both the local and international sporting scenes. The roster of alumni includes BEST Center graduates and UAAP phenoms Kiefer Ravena and Thirdy Ravena, Southeast Asian Games medalist Japoy Lizardo, and PBA star Chris Tiu.

adidas Climachill™

adidas announced the launch of the new Climachill™ apparel range, headlined by a black training t-shirt that features intuitive body heat management technology to cool athletes in hot conditions. Perfect for the warm and humid climate in the Philippines, the adidas Climachill™ is designed to deliver maximum cooling benefit without compromising comfort or design.

“The body’s core temperature can increase by 3 degree Celsius when we are exercising. To maintain a stable temperature, your body needs to work a lot harder to lose excess heat. This may result in impaired physiological functions,which will ultimately affect performance,” explained Dr Maarten Hupperets, Director of Future Sport Science at adidas. “When it comes to performance,every degree matters. The Climachill™ apparel is the smartest and most advanced sporting product and can provide maximum cooling experience.”

For athletes who desire sophisticated solutions in order to regulate body temperature and remain cool in adverse conditions, the innovative Climachill™ apparel is their answer. In this cross-category collection, adidas has also launched training shirts in the most unconventional colour for athletic apparel– black – to showcase the process of the Climachill™ technology.

Employing industry-first 3D aluminium-cooling spheres, the Climachill™ apparel provides an instant cooling sensation upon contact. In addition to the aluminium dots, the ground-breaking SubZero flat yarn also contains titanium and is woven throughout the inside of each Climachill™ jersey to deliver more cooling capacity.

Filipino athletes don’t have to be afraid of wearing black for fear of heat and they can now train harder, run longer and compete better. The Climachill™ product range will be available locally from April 2015 at leading adidas Sports performance stores, adidas online store(http://shop.adidas.com.ph) and sports retailers nationwide

Five Reasons Why Less is More

In the 11th year of the popular Nike Free franchise, Nike introduces three evolved running styles: the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit, the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit and the Nike Free 5.0. The new models take the next step toward harnessing the natural motion of a runner’s feet and body – not by adding, but by honing down to the design features that give runners a natural running experience.

The collection features redesigned uppers engineered to work holistically with the shoe’s natural flexibility. The ecosystem offers runners a progression of three natural ride options:
  • Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit: Nike’s most natural ride with a snug Flyknit upper and 4-millimeter heel-to-toe offset
  • Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit: A cushioned, natural ride with a contoured Flyknit upper and 6-millimeter offset
  • Nike Free 5.0: Nike’s most cushioned, natural ride with an engineered upper and 8-millimeter offset
The concept of Nike Free was born in 2001 after a legendary coach’s insights inspired designers to create footwear that mimicked the feel of barefoot training as well as offered important protection and support. In 2015 Nike Free designers have once again focused on the principle of less: eliminating layers, seams and bulk. The final product is all about the power of the foot — not the shoe.

Here, a look at why less is more with the new Nike Free running collection.

1. NATURALLY FLEXING SOLES
Nike Free takes a research-based, body-led approach to the sole that allows the foot to sit close to the ground and move as nature intended. Data shows that the foot doesn’t move in a perfectly straight line while running. Even though the body is moving forward linearly, the feet tend to roll slightly while striking the ground. The hexagonal flex grooves on the outsole of all three Nike Free running shoes provide a fuller range of motion, letting the foot adapt to the ground, while the Phylite foam offers lightweight cushioning.

2. SOCK-LIKE UPPERS
The Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit and the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit have virtually seamless one-piece Nike Flyknit uppers that conform to the shape of a runner’s foot and offer support at the same time. Nike Flyknit technology allows designers to micro-engineer in areas of stretch, support and breathability exactly where runners need it.  All three shoes feature Nike Flywire technology for lightweight, strong support around the midfoot and arch.

3. FEATHERWEIGHT DESIGN
Nike Flyknit technology is a prime example that less can be more and the quintessential upper to complement Nike Free shoes’ natural motion outsoles. The stretchy, featherweight, durable yarn hugs the shape of the foot and simultaneously lends flexibility and support. With a slightly looser weave than in previous models, the Flyknit uppers on the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit and Free 4.0 Flyknit promote improved breathability.

4. FORMFITTING HEEL SUPPORT
While some running shoes benefit from a structured, plastic heel counter on the back of the shoe, the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit uses Flyknit technology to support the heel. The Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit uses a non-stretch yarn in the heel area to add even more stability and support to those who need it. Removing the structured heel counter frees up the runner’s natural gait and pares down weight.

5. LESS WASTE
Since Nike Flyknit technology debuted in the Flyknit Racer in 2012, the innovative manufacturing process has reduced waste by nearly two million pounds – equivalent to about three times the weight of the world’s largest passenger jet. While shoe uppers are traditionally constructed from multiple materials cut and sewn together, Nike Flyknit technology knits strands of yarn into a nearly seamless upper to create a lightweight, form-fitting shoe that provides maximum athletic performance with minimal environmental impact.

Enabling Natural Movement
Nike designers don’t see Nike Free as a shoe made up of individual features. Instead, they’ve createdan ecosystem in which each of the shoe’s attributes work in concert to enable the natural movementof the foot. The form, materials and technology of Nike Free summer footwear harmonize to achieve360-degree natural motion.
