Under Armour Earn Your Armour Challenge
Under Armour Philippines officially launched the first leg of its “Earn Your Armour” campaign with the “Fight Form: Elite Edition” at Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City last May 17, 2015. The campaign is organized by Triple Private Ltd., the exclusive distributor of Under Armour in Southeast Asia. Participants went on to Earn It and managed to conquer tough fight form challenges that tested their skills and endurance.
In partnership with Ultimate Fitness gym and Coach Erwin Tagle, the “Philippine Bruce Lee”, the challenge brought together dozens of martial arts enthusiasts for an evening of intense workouts. Pioneered by Coach Erwin Tagle, “Fight Form” is a fitness program that utilizes martial arts movements in a no-contact format. The high intensity workout lets athletes practice mixed martial arts movements such as jabs, kicks, sprawl and brawl, and others without need of a sparring partner. Athletes are scored based on number of repetitions within a set time limit, or maximum time to sustain a particular movement or position.
To highlight Under Armour’s kinship with the martial arts community, the launch also featured exciting demonstrations of Muay Thai, jiu-jitsu and wrestling. Celebrity athletes Luis Manzano, Sid Lucero, JC de Vera and JM de Guzman showed their martial arts prowess to the delight of the audience. The different actors also showcased that they can also mixed it up in the different martial arts and that they work out amidst their busy taping schedule. Aside from celebrities, kids also had a sparring session that just proves that martial arts is not only for adults but for kids as well. We can just say that the future is bright for mixed martial arts.
Also gracing the event were MMA Asia superstar and One Fighting Championship bantamweight title holder Mark Striegl, volleyball superstar and fitness icon Gretchen Ho, and Robi Domingo.
“With the growing popularity of mixed martial arts, the public wants to experience that same kind of exhilaration and physical challenge without necessarily engaging in combat against another opponent. ‘Fight Form’ lets the athlete get that kind of experience while honing his Agility, Speed, and Endurance, which are cornerstones of the Under Armour philosophy”, said Adrian Chai, the Chief Marketing Officer of Triple Private Ltd.
