The running community is abuzz with a lot of activities and programs that are meant to help runner sustain and progress into their sport. There are even some which have programs meant to entice non-active people to get up and start running!
As somebody who is trying to get back my running groove, the fact that excites me most is not just the number of options I can look into and choose from but also the quality of options available! It is just amazing.
One of the latest to join the fray is Under Armour who just last Saturday, October 1 officially launched it’s running program – the UA Run Crew. Created in partnership with celebrity fitness couple Coach Toni and Jim Saret’s APEX High Performance Training Camp, the UA Run Crew is a running program that is tailor-made for active lifestyle enthusiasts and aspiring runners. It banks on the well-accepted and widely known scientific program by the APEX team of Coach Toni and Jim and it provides a step-by-step guide towards a person’s objective in running.
The UA-APEX Run Crew kick-off last Sunday at the BHS Amphitheater attracted more than 200 runners – from beginners to elite, for a few hours of intensive training to enhance their strength and endurance in running. Leading the activity which was open for free to the public was program directors, Coaches Jim and Toni Saret. They were also joined by Under Armour Affiliate Trainer Kat Garcia and as a special guest, Brand Ambassador Piolo Pascual.
Piolo, a known fitness enthusiast who consistently trains and joins the Ironman 70.3 race in Cebu (in a relay team where he does the bike leg), shared how gearing up with a high performance apparel and shoes like Under Armour will help one perform better and perform more. He also stayed to join everyone for the initial session which was Coach Toni’s intense 4-minute workout.
The UA-Apex Run Crew program will be made up of 24 sessions and will run until December 3, 2016 and will have as its culminating activity, the Under Armour Marathon race.
