360 Fitness Introduces Country’s First Circuit Training Race
360 Fitness Club was born in Ortigas Center last June 21st 2010 out of the hard work and big dreams of five young and passionate entrepreneurs. As the country’s first co-ed express circuit training facility, the club aims to revolutionize the fitness industry by reinventing the way people exercise. And revolutionize it has, at least for the strong following of 300 members it has gained in the short span of three months. 360 has somehow found a way to get people excited about exercising. “I used to be too lazy to exercise,” says Kiko, one of the club’s pioneer members, “but now my week isn’t complete without my visits to 360. I’ve lost fifteen pounds to date, but it’s the unique program and great team of coaches that keep me coming back for more.”
In line with its vision, the club will introduce another first: a unique racing experience never before seen in the Philippines. “The 360-100PLUS Boot Camp Race”, a circuit training event that will challenge even the most experienced athletes and bring marathon racing to a whole new level. The Boot Camp Race is specially designed by Chappy Callanta, Internationally Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and 360 Fitness Director. This revolutionary event will be held at the Philsports Arena track and field oval this November 27, Saturday, from 4pm-7pm (Registration, Orientation and Warm-up starts at 3pm). “We’re taking the 360 Circuit outdoors and supersizing it,” says Joana Piñon, Marketing Director.
The Boot Camp will feature 8 different stations where participants will have to perform a specific exercise using free weights or their own body resistance. After completing the required number of repetitions, participants will have to run to the next station to complete another set of exercises. “It’s a refreshing change from your usual race,” states Finance Director Kimberly Tañedo, “but that doesn’t make it any easier!” There will be three levels of difficulty catering to beginner, elite, and expert racers. Instead of the usual distance based categories, participants will vie for the best time in each of the three difficulty levels. Participants with the best valid time for each category will win cash prizes. Special gifts from sponsors will also be given as tokens of appreciation, and gift bags are in store for all participants.
Registration will be open until November 19 at 360 Fitness Club located at 13/F Strata 100, F. Ortigas Jr. Road, Pasig or ROX Bonifacio High Street on selected dates. Details can be found on www.completethecircuit.com and www.facebook.com/360FitnessClub. To get a quick idea of what exercise are involved in the race, watch this quick teaser video.
