Pinoy Athleticism

Following the success of the first batch of Team USANA Pilipinas, USANA Philippines further expands the family with the second batch of outstanding Pinoy athletes as they promote fitness and wellness among Filipinos.

This year’s roster includes Misagh Bahadoran, Chieffy Caligdong and Belay Fernando for Football, Biboy Rivera for Bowling, Sid Isidro for Dragon Boat, Michelle Cojuangco-Barrera for Equestrian, and Peter June Simon for Basketball. These athletes follow in the footsteps of other USANA-partnered

“Much like in sports, we believe that good health and fitness is necessary in one’s journey towards success,” explains Michelle Cojuangco-Barrera. “It is for that reason that we see our partnership with USANA as something more meaningful than just promoting a product, but a profound privilege in inspiring our fellow Filipinos to achieve good health as an important tool for success.”
