Santé Fitness Lab and Santé Lacuna Swim School announced their partnership at Relish Luxe Café in Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines on February 20, 2019 in a bid to strengthen their drive in sports development particularly in swimming. Present during the contract signing were Santé CEO Joey Marcelo and professional swimmers Bea Grabador and Jessie Khing Lacuna.
It is the goal of Santé Fitness Lab to create champions in sports particularly in the field of swimming as well as being a global leader in providing holistic and innovative fitness programs and sports rehabilitation. Marcelo believes that the Santé Lacuna Swim Class is a step towards the fulfillment of this vision.
“Finally, we are pleased to announce that Santé Fitness Lab will now offer swimming classes through Santé Lacuna Swim School,” Marcelo stated. “We consider this as a milestone for us, especially that this can help level up our offerings and hone champions.”
A premier one-stop fitness center, Santé Fitness Lab serves not only as a gym but also as a hub that offers comprehensive training programs from professional and everyday athletes. The fitness center, which has Sports Development programs, will start offering swimming lessons through Santé Lacuna Swim School.
Grabador and Lacuna will be spearheading the Santé Lacuna Swim School. They are both prominent figures in the field of swimming in and outside of the Philippines.
“The partnership between Santé Fitness Lab and Santé Lacuna Swim School really comes from passion,” Grabador said. “I owe it to Sir Joey, who was my student in swimming, for giving me one shot.”
“Through this partnership, Filipino athletes will have access to world class facility and training,” Grabador added. “We’re happy to go on with our mission to produce the next champions and future Olympians through the grass root level.”
Having represented the Philippines in Southeast Asian Games and Asian Games, Lacuna said he shares the same vision in building the swimming community so he was extremely excited about the partnership. He stated, “We’re really thankful to Sir Joey and Santé for giving us a chance and opportunity to have a platform where we can share our skills.”
