Fitness First is guided by five core values, which capture how every member of the organization can inspire people to go further in life. One of the five core values of Fitness First is ‘We Care,’ and it was brought to the fore when Typhoon Yolanda hit Central Luzon last November 8, 2013.
As a company, Fitness First Philippines allowed employees to volunteer in relief centers to assist in the packing of supplies during company time. This encouraged employees to further extend support during their free time. Management and staff unanimously decided to forego the company Christmas party last 2013 and the budget, close to one million pesos, was added to the global Fitness First fund-raising efforts.
The spirit of giving extended outside the Philippines. Leading by example, regional and global directors were the first to reach into their pockets and contribute to the relief fund.
