Our Fitness Approach

The signature Tawhay door with it's curved right edge which welcomes you to the gym

In our pursuit, uncertain of the path ahead, we ventured across continents, driven by the desire for a new beginning and the opportunity to give back to the community that shaped John's early years. It was through this journey that we ultimately brought Tawhay to life.

In the heart of Siargao, nestled amidst the pristine beauty of the island, Tawhay stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication to your well-being. More than just a fitness and wellness community, Tawhay is our home, our heart, and our lifelong commitment to you. Our journey began with a simple yet profound vision – to create a space without troubles, worries or stress; seamlessly with the love we hold for Siargao. We dreamed of a place where memories would be forged, where friends and family could come together in the pursuit of health and happiness.

At Tawhay, we believe in inclusivity, because we know that everyone deserves to experience the boundless joys of health and happiness. It matters not who you are or where you come from; here, we stand united in our pursuit of a thriving, flourishing community. Our mission transcends mere physical fitness; it encompasses the holistic well-being of each individual. We see the mind and body as one, intricately connected, and understand that true happiness and health can only be achieved by tending to all facets of a person's being. In building Tawhay, we set out not only to strengthen bodies, but to fortify an entire island. We envision a place where prosperity knows no bounds, where neighbors uplift one another, where growth is nurtured, and where acceptance reigns supreme, free from judgment.

Welcome to Tawhay, where we invite you to embark on a journey of self-discovery, surrounded by the breathtaking backdrop of Siargao. Together, let us create a legacy of health and happiness.

In memory of our beloved furry friend Luna, whose spirit will forever be a part of this special place.
