Fit for Life: The K to 12 Physical Education and Health Textbook
The emphasis of this curriculum is to lead the student to health-optimizing physical education for life, through: aerobic and muscle-and-bone strengthening exercises (PE 1: Grade 11, 1st Semester); individual, dual, and team sports in competitive and recreational settings (PE 2: Grade 11, 2nd Semester); dance or rhythmical movement patterns (PE 3: Grade 12, 1st Semester); and recreational activities in outdoor, natural, or semi-natural settings (PE 4: Grade 12, 2nd Semester). This division of topics is adapted from the tertiary level system of having PE 1 through 4 in four semesters, facilitating the transition to the college level.

Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
