Test of Will 2017
If you can spare 4 minutes of your time, why not try out the Test of Will? It’s a combination of 4 functional training exercise for 1 minute each exercise. Test of Will has been an annual fitness challenge brought to you by the leading high performance apparel provider, Under Armour. Participants will compete in a four-minute circuit consisting of Burpees, One Arm Thruster, TRX Rows and Sandbag Throw. Each competitor will be scored based on the maximum number of repetitions they can achieve within 60 seconds.
With the addition of Indonesia and Brunei this year, the regional fitness competition that also takes place in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines is expected to be more intense than the year before. The highest scoring man and woman of the national heats from each respective country will win an all-expense paid trip to compete in the regional finals, happening in Kuala Lumpur on 6 May 2017.
This year’s overall champion of the regional finals will walk away with S$2,500 cash prize, or around Php 88,000.00.

“The Test of Will is for everyone and anyone with the determination and discipline to train and compete. Last year, we witnessed champions crowned from the most unexpected individuals. The event epitomizes the might of the determined and the spirit of the underdogs, something which Under Armour stands for,” said Mr. Michael Binger, CEO of Triple Pte Ltd, exclusive distributor of Under Armour in Southeast Asia.
Under Armour has also recently launched its latest apparel and footwear collections engineered with the Threadborne™ technology leading up to the national heats; to equip participants with the gear to train and compete at the highest level. The Threadborne™ Siro and Seamless collections are made from fabric that is light, breathable, anti-cling, quick-drying and provides a high-level of stretch and recovery.
“Under Armour took the ultra-durable yarns within paracords, and rebuilt them into apparel material that can withstand the rigors of intensive use. The result is a next generation fabric that gives athletes an edge to perform better through enhanced comfort and durability,” said Binger
