One Healthy Family

Family-centered wellness goes to the spotlight as Team Pangilinan, comprised of the husband-wife tandem of Anthony Pangilinan and Maricel Laxa Pangilinan, along with their children Ella, Donny, Hannah, Benjamin and Solana, joins USANA Philippines’ growing roster of brand ambassadors.

Team Pangilinan is a regular participant of multi-sport activities, including fun runs, triathlons, marathons and even Ironman competitions with the vision to promote a Christ-centered, balanced and productive lifestyle as a family.

Team Pangilinan shares their enthusiasm to join USANA Philippines in their vision. “For us, this is a new platform to share our lifelong mission to promote family wellness and togetherness through sports,” explains Mr. Anthony Pangilinan.  “We feel that we need to share the benefits of using USANA products to help more families nationwide to do more and further grow their family healthily,” says Ms. Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan.

Pinoy Atheticism

Following the success of the 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.
