We live in a day and age where our state of health is completely in our hands. For those who have made a commitment to get fit and strong, there are numerous fitness apps to be downloaded. 24-hour gyms, healthy restaurants and food deliveries–name it. It’s out there. We have never been as fitness-empowered as we are today. I myself have used all these means to be at my fittest. But truth is, I’m not really sure I’m fit enough, internally. When it comes to my health, I’m not one who would go for annual physical exams. I only go to my doctors whenever I’m not feeling well. I know, I know, I should know better. Which is why I finally had my first legit executive healthcare program and imaging at Hi-Precision Diagnostics last month.
Brent Javier, Jeff Lo & I lead an active lifestyle yet we were very curious to know if we are really fit.
I tell ya this test is like math for me, I was so nervous waiting for the results to be released which took two weeks because Hi-Precision mounted an event for everyone who took the test. The event was held at The Upperdeck, my current gym! And of course no fitness & wellness event is complete without some fun activity to get us moving.
The spinning room of The Upperdeck is da bomb!
There’s a common misconception with being thin means you’re automatically fit. I learned that looking and feeling food is not a measure of good health. Even if you’re not overweight, diabetes and heart disease threaten those with bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyles. Meanwhile, on the opposite end of the spectrum, obese individuals are ticking time bombs for chronic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and kidney disease, among others. ike finely tuned machines, our bodies will not lie when it comes to our blood chemistry which is why it’s important to have it checked regularly.
Imagine if we care for our gadgets, our home, our cars enough to have it checked and go under regular maintenance, why can’t we do it to the most important thing in the world, our body?
Because health really is wealth and Hi-Precision Diagnostics want us to preserve this wealth we each posses, they’ve come up with basic packages that can help us preserve and prolong this wealth we all aim to have. Basic health check-up with option to add imaging services such as x-ray, ECG, ultrasound, mammography, or CT is what they offer among other things. These simple and easy tests give you a complete picture of your health. You stop the guesswork on why you’re gaining weight, feeling extra tired, and any other symptoms you might be experiencing. And it gives your doctor a way to give you a correct diagnosis and recommendations.
My bother from another mother, Jeff Lo of Pinoy Fitness & I minutes prior to finding out our results of our executive healthcare program & imaging. Hahaha!
I honestly think it’s easier to look physically fit than to be internally fit and healthy. If you’ve got genes of hypertension and diabetes (like I do) there’s a greater chance you’ll develop these when you’re older even though you try to be really healthy (this sounded like I’m blaming the gene game but it’s partly true naman). So what do you do when you know there’s a chance you’ll end up having diabetes or hypertension? You try to live healthier lifestyle–you workout, you eat the right food and of course you get yourself checked regularly. So this is what I exactly did. I had an executive check-up at Hi-Precision Diagnostics.
The executive check-up includes the following tests:
Complete Blood Count, ESR, Fasting Blood Sugar, HBA1C, Blood Urea Nitrogen, Creatinin, Blood Uric Acid, Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Lipoprotein Profile, SGPT, SGOT, Alkaline Phosphatase, Total Protein with A/G Ratio, B1B2, GGT, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Inorganic Phosphorus, Ionized Calcium, Amylase, Lipase, LDH, CK Total, CEA, FT4, TSH, Complete Urinalysis, Fecalysis and Occult Blood (FIT). CXR PA (14X14), ECG, Treadmill, WAB UTZ, 2D Echo with Doppler.
So we got our results and I’m happy to report that we passed everything with flying colors! Yay! Tessa Prieto was the happiest in our group and every time each result was revealed, she would happily react knowing she passed!
All smiles because we are fit! 🙂

We promise to stay committed in having a healthy lifestyle so the next time we have our executive check-up (which is due next year) we’re hoping it’ll reflect in our blood work again! Having a routine tests done annually will also detect possible health issues down the road and with Hi-Precision Diagnostics, it’s easier to keep track of our profess and create an action plan with our doctor for a better quality of life.
The Executive Healthcare Program & Imaging is packaged at Php 15,500.
