Healthful havens by Regina G. PosadasPublished: May 27, 2014Updated: February 16, 2015

It’s no sweat to stay fit and active in these spanking and superb urban abodes.

Congestion, pollution, noise, and traffic are what usually come to mind when you say city living.  But not when you behold today’s top condominium and residential developments in mega Manila, with their impressive structures that endorse green living, and exemplary amenities that promote fitness and wellness.  Here are a few that would have you raring to go home and “get physical,” rather than do overtime, gallivant around town, or veg out on the couch.

One Serendra in Taguig
There’s something to engage every member of the family in this stunningly lush and gorgeous Bonifacio Global City oasis. Pick from underground basketball and badminton courts, a putting green, multiple gyms, lap and recreational pools, a spa, a game room, and indoor and outdoor play areas for kids.
Azure Urban Resort Residences in Parañaque
A beach with rippling waves, fine white sand, and waterslides in the city?  Yes, this luxurious condo complex south of the metro boasts of one, plus several playgrounds, spa and massage facilities, a beach volleyball area, a gym, lap and kiddie pools, and a basketball court, ensuring a year-round tropical vacation experience.

The Trion Towers in Taguig
Ingeniously designed, this deluxe triple-tower development is another reason to love BGC and call it home.  There is much to sample and savor, both indoor and outdoor, such as the aerobic studio, gym, boxing area, game room, swimming pools, jogging and walking therapeutic trails, bicycle tracks, meditation garden, and playground.  For family bonding and entertainment, head to the videoke room, mini theater, or library/lounge. 

Sonata Private Residences in Pasig
Residents are invited to “find their rhythm” in this impressively planned modern project – a combination of condominiums, office space and a hotel.  Helping them realize that are a multi-purpose gym and studio, a lap pool, a pathway for walking and jogging, a private theater, music rooms and lounges with terrific vistas, a digital game room, a sauna, and especially-for-children spaces and services.  

Grass Residences in Quezon City 
A country club ambiance pervades in this condo complex within a mall that has several swimming pools, Taraflex badminton courts, a covered basketball court, jogging trails, a gym, and a recreational area for youngsters.   Prettifying the place are landscaped gardens, pavilions, cabanas and water cascades.
