1. Hula hoops at the playground
Hula hoops is a fun hobby and a recommended physical exercise you can enjoy alone or with your friends. Buy your own hula hoop from your favorite sports shop online or in the mall.
To do hula-hooping, simply sway your hips back and forth and allow the hula hoop to rotate around your hips. You can also do creative movements while swaying like dancing or moving around.
This activity maximizes the space in your condo home since you can do this anywhere – in your living room, bedroom or balcony. No need for large spaces!
You can enjoy this activity any time of the day. But the perfect place for this activity is at the Sonora Garden Residences, located at Alabang-Zapote Road, Talon Tres, Las Piñas. Do this activity on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful view of this resort-style property.
2. Jump rope in the garden
Jump rope is a good cardio exercise that can help you burn calories. All you need is a reliable jump rope and running shoes. Some do this with bare feet. Just make sure that the floor is safe, with padding or soil (just for safety measures!).
While you need a jump rope and some comfy footwear, you need to use those with coordination and timing! Time your jump whenever the rope passes your feet. You can also do some freestyle, such as swinging your rope from side to side while jumping.
This activity maximizes the tiny space in your condo home and in common areas such as the landscaped gardens, open lawns, and roof deck. Make the most of your condo community while adopting an active lifestyle!
You can enjoy this activity in landscaped gardens like the one at Kai Garden Residences, located at M. Vicente St. Mandaluyong City. It is the perfect spot for this activity because you can enjoy not only the view but also the open space and the fresh air.
3. Mini swimming competition in the pool.
Mini swimming competitions can be done with your family, friends, and neighbors. This is a fun activity that promotes harmonious community living.
Through activities such as mini swimming competitions, you will maximize the use of common areas/amenities in your condo community. You can set the rules like how many laps must the participants finish, the swimming style, and the prize for winners.
It is advisable for you to do this in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the fierce heat of the sun that can cause sunburns.
The Atherton is the perfect DMCI Homes property for this mini swimming competition This resort-style condo has a well-maintained lap pool for fun activities.
4. Yoga at the condo roof deck
Yoga is a mind and body practice, combined with physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation. All you need is a yoga mat and a comfortable spot. You can do it alone or with companions.
You can do this activity at the sky lounge of Allegra Gardens, early in the morning and late in the afternoon to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.
Doing yoga in a sky lounge is a good idea because of the wide space and open-air with the sunrise or sunset in the backdrop. Also, yoga is never a hassle during the rainy season since you may do this in your living room or on the balcony.
5. Powerlifting in the gym
Do you need to release your daily stressors? Lifting weights and doing cardio exercises are effective ways to control symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. These mental health issues have unfortunately been prevalent during the past two years.
But before you start, assess yourself if you are fit to do strenuous activity. Visit your doctor, if necessary. Then, schedule your visits to the community gym. You can also hire a trainer, in-person or virtual, to help you with routines.
Compared to working out at home, using the gym facilities for strenuous exercises is more effective because the place is built for physical activities. It is equipped with weights, machines, and other equipment for proper workout routines.
You can hit the gym at any time of the day although you may need to reserve a slot, depending on their safety guidelines and policies. But just like all DMCI Homes indoor gyms, the one at The Crestmont Quezon City is fully equipped and well-maintained to ensure the safety of residents at all times.
6. Small get-togethers at the cabana
Small get-togethers are a healthy way to bond with family and friends, especially after two years of lockdown. It is better to do small get-togethers on weekends so more people can attend.
One of the best places for small get-togethers is the gazebo/cabana facility at Prisma Residences. You can set up a schedule and invite people over for brunch, dinner, or afternoon merienda.
However, make sure to practice social distancing and follow safety health protocols as we are still under the pandemic.

8. Picnics in the lawn
Catch up with family and friends over a picnic with good food and refreshments in one of the community gardens!

Send out invitations a week in advance for your potluck get-together. This will give your guests time to prepare and inform the condo admin about your event.
You can do it any time of day, even at night! Because of the secured environment of the Sonora Garden Residences, there is nothing to worry about when it comes to your security.
