They are armoured! Many women have attended Under Armour’s Women of Will circuit training and yoga classes last November 7, at the Edsa Shangri- La Hotel and November 8 at the Ayala Triangle. These ladies braved their way to be part of the Women of Will campaign for their stand on fitness and strength, which also serves as a support for women in battling breast cancer.
It’s a thrilling sight that a lot of women participated the event and showed their support for the campaign. Under Armour’s ambassador Emmanuelle Adda, a French-Filipina performing artist and fitness enthusiast stated “If it doesn’t involve you stepping outside, touching other people, it is pointless.” Participants spent the night practicing circuit training and yoga with Ms. Adda, as she also shared a few tips on how to step out of your comfort zone and be a Woman of Will. “Push yourself, know yourself, routine is your enemy and set a higher mark to grow. Do not compare yourself to a magazine, be true to what you are!” says Emmanuelle Adda in an interview.
Under Armour made partnerships with strategic gyms and health clubs for the month-long celebration. Being Under Armour’s health club partner, Edsa Shangri-La Hotel made the event even more relaxing through their crew’s assistance and service to the yogis. “It aligns very much to how we position the Club for our female members and guests. Our goal is to actively promote a lifestyle that is anchored on fitness and wellness. It’s all about celebrating a woman’s strength and watching each of them reach and even surpass their own potential – and this is exactly what Women of Will is all about.” A statement from Edsa Shangri-La’s Health Club Manager, Renessa Santos regarding their partnership with Under Armour.
Neither heat nor sunlight was able to stop yogis from participating the Sunday yoga class at the Ayala Triangle, a benefit event of Urban Ashram Yoga. As the class progressed, more people came to register and the event ended with 200 attendees. Under Armour collectibles were given away, with a raffle draw from sponsors care of Urban Ashram. A group activity was also held, where the attendees were able to interact with other yogis, to share the goodness of being fit while having fun. The yogis all rushed to have their photos taken at the photo booth, and have their yoga poses shared on Facebook and Instagram, which made the event truly worth remembering.
