I’ve been a fan of Under Armour even before the brand was officially launched in the Philippines last year. I also like their campaign as it pushes people to be more fitter and perform better just like each of their products that’s not only stylish in its design but it’s always performance driven. “Earn Your Armour Philippines” is scheduled from May 17 to December 1 and will consist of workout sets from various fitness domains that put a premium on Strength, Endurance, and Agility. Under Armour Philippines formally launched the campaign on April 23 at Bonifacio High Street with a series of fun challenges for select Media and athletes as a teaser for the actual challenge legs. The campaign is a follow through of the global Earn Your Armour initiative, calling on sporting individuals training across various countries to challenge themselves and prove they have the will of an athlete. We got a first hand look and feel on how the fitness challenges would go on as I was part of the 4 media participants taking the Earn Your Armour Challenge. The other 3 were Jeff Lo of Pinoyfitness.com, Jinoe Gavan of Takbo,PH and Jham Mariano of SigueCourer.com We had to do 5 sets of several variations of bur pees, slides and jumping jacks with each set having a short sprint.
It was a short but intense fitness challenges handled by Coach Aries Fonacier with Jeff Lo winning the set and earning a full set of Under Armour gear. I was just happy to be part of this challenge and being able to finish all the core challenges. It was exhausting. The fast pace had me missing my count on the number of repetitions I did as well as catching my breath. It lasted just a few minutes but it required a lot of strength, agility and endurance. I’m glad I was able to do all challenges and I did Earn my Armour. I’ll try it again when I’m a lot more prepared in the future legs. The challenges simulates basic offense and defense positions in key sports like wrestling, MMA and others.
The next part was the athletes doing the same challenges we did but this time, they had to do 10 repetitions. It was more fun watching them than actually doing it. Of course, it would be a real feather in your cap if you get to Earn Your Armour and do the challenges. After a series of lead changes in a very competitive mode, Actor JC De Vera eventually won the challenge.
Underscoring the importance of the Philippines to the brand, Adrian Chai, the Chief Marketing Officer of Triple Private Ltd., the exclusive sports and lifestyle distributor for Under Armour across Southeast Asia, gave the opening remarks. “Fitness should be the goal of every health-oriented individual. With this campaign, Under Armour seeks to empower customers to work hard for their fitness gains and to be stronger, faster, and more athletic than they ever thought possible”, said Adrian. “We are excited to see how Filipinos will rise to this challenge”, he added.
The event was also graced by Under Armour athletes Elle Alda, Coaches Martin Lloyd Antonio (Hammer Program), Erwin Tagle (Ultimate Fitness), Aries Fonacier (FortRock Fitness); Coach Andy Leuterio (Alpha Training Systems); and top Age Group triathlete Doray Ellis.
The event was held in partnership with Six Degrees, the multi-brand distributor for Under Armour in the Philippines. Its newest retail partner, RUNNR, proudly displayed the flagship Gemini running shoe during the launch.
