Grounding Fitness on PSC’s Rise Up Shape Up episode

The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) takes a break from featuring active sports and competitive events and gives spotlight to a calm, serene way to fitness—grounding or earthing in the upcoming webisode of Rise Up Shape Up this Saturday, November 6.

Grounding or earthing is a science-backed therapeutic technique that reconnects you to nature as you step and feel the earth or ground. As explained by earth science, when the feet get direct contact with the ground, one’s body is electrically charged by the earth and has positive effects on the body. It is said to help reduce physical and mental stress as well as prevent and treat inflammation and immune diseases.

Book Author and devout practitioner of the holistic life Grace Eleazar will talk more about grounding and earthing on the special episode which will start at 10:30 am.

PSC Women in Sports oversight commissioner Celia Kiram said that they thought of the pregnant and elderly women when they came up with the idea of featuring grounding to fitness.

“Pregnant women and the elderly might be too intimidated with high-impact exercises. But with grounding, all they need to do is step on the ground, walk barefoot, and feel the earth under their feet to help release muscle tension and stress.” Kiram said adding they advocate fitness and wellness for everyone.

Commissioner Kiram will also discuss the history of grounding or earthing in “K-Isport" segment.

The episode will also announce the 25 winners of each of the four categories of the Zumbarangay Pilipinas: Solo on Cam Exercise Challenge wherein each winner will receive a cash prize of Php 1,000.
