Under Armour Ambassadors & Fil-Am MMA fighters Brandon Vera and Mark Striegl Triumph in “Age of Domination” event

PRESS RELEASE:

Under Armour lauds Fil-Am fighters Vera, Striegl for wins in ONE Championship

MANILA, Philippines – Under Armour Philippines supported ONE Championship’s year-end fight card as two beloved mixed martial arts athletes competed at the highly-anticipated “Age of Domination” event on Friday, December 2.

To the delight of Under Armour fans, Brandon Vera and Mark Striegl came out of the 20,000-seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City with their hands raised in triumph as both Filipino-American fighters scored impressive victories in their respective bouts.

Vera successfully defended his ONE Heavyweight World Championship, making easy work of previously unbeaten Japanese challenger Hideki Sekine to win by technical knockout just minutes into the first round.

From the opening bell, Vera began to land a series of solid blows on Sekine, who surprisingly took Vera’s best shots quite well.

Moments later, a thudding body kick connected for Vera, sending Sekine crashing to the canvas clutching his midsection. Vera then put on the finishing touches with punishing strikes from the top to get the win.

On the other hand, Striegl persevered through three grueling rounds against Bulgaria’s Sotir Kichukov to win by unanimous decision in a catchweight contest.

Striegl began the match aggressively, using superior speed and angles to stifle Kichukov who appeared unable to time Striegl’s erratic rhythm. Striegl took Kichukov down to the ground at will, controlling his opponent with a smothering top game.

In the end, all three judges saw the bout the same way with Striegl emerging as the victor.

Vera was the honorary guest in the opening of the Bonifacio High Street brand house in the same year, while Striegl has been an Under Armour gear user since he started his professional mixed martial arts career and was enlisted as a brand ambassador since 2015

The most innovative sports apparel in the world today is the official brand partner of ONE: AGE OF DOMINATION.

In an effort to strengthen women empowerment in our society through fitness and healthy lifestyle, Under Armour formed a partnership with Belle De Jour Power Planner and held an exclusive on-ground campaign dubbed “Women in Armour” last  November 19 at Maximus Café in Pasig City.

The objective of Under Armour and Belle De Jour’s passion series was to encourage ladies to engage into a healthy and active lifestyle as many women are having difficulties in pinpointing the right exercise or continuing their daily workout routine due to busy work schedules.

As living a healthy lifestyle is a fundamental component to achieving an optimal mental and physical well-being, the event catered an intense circuit training and self-defense seminar.

The express circuit training was led by Under Armour-affiliate trainer “Mama” Kat Geronimo, a renowned celebrity fitness coach who mentors notable film and television actresses such as Marian Rivera, Danica Sotto-Pingris, Melissa Ricks, Megan Young, Bettina Carlos, Anne Curtis and Jessy Mendiola.

On the other hand, Filipina fighter Geli Bulaong supervised the mixed martial arts (MMA) self-defense seminar with 50 women attendees.

Bulaong, who made history last November 6 as she became the first-ever URCC women’s flyweight champion by defeating Yan Qui Han via first-round technical knockout, conducted basic MMA drills and several self-defense techniques.

Known as an advocate of women empowerment, Bulaong also shared that she donated her entire fight purse to the Philippine Cancer Society to signify her support in increasing awareness and reducing stigma of breast cancer.

Participants of the afternoon affair were in for a special treat as they were given an opportunity to interact and talk to the country’s high-profile fitness connoisseurs.

“The Fittest Woman in Philippine Crossfit” Zoe Pond-McPherson hosted a fitness dialogue to flesh out every essential piece on embodying health and wellness.

Meanwhile, Beast House’s Gia Gapay discussed about the amatory art of pole dancing as a beneficial form of exercise for women.

One Of A Kind Marketing chief Tin Majadillas spearheaded the commercial aspect of the event as she tackled about women entrepreneurship, while fitness trainer Andy Leuterio also shared his expertise on making recreational sports and hobby as a business.

The event culminated by unveiling the Under Armour corner at Maximus Athlete’s Shop Café, which is located along Pioneer Street in Pasig City.

With women playing a huge role in our society, be part of spreading the female empowerment and join Under Armour’s campaign on social media by using #womenofwill #strengthenwomeninarmour and #fiercelyunstoppable.

Head of Gym and a multiple-time CrossFit winner, Henrik Olofsson said: “Here at TripleFit we have three core training principles; Screen, Protect, and Coach. These principles ensure that our coaches set foundations for how we make decisions in programming and how we individualise our training. Active coaching techniques tie physiology and psychology together and allow our members access to everything they need to reach their fitness and health goals.”

TripleFit will also be in the fitness industry leader by being the first in South-East Asia to incorporate state-of-the-art wearable fitness trackers by POLAR together with the POLAR Flow Club Solutions application within its fitness group classes. This unique style of evidence- based training allows members to experience training at different heart rate intensities. It also allows the coaches to see who’s keeping up with the class, steer the group in the right direction, and provides added safety precaution for coaches and ensure that they are consistently training in a safe and healthy heart-rate zone and yet maximizing their efforts.

“Polar, the pioneer of wearable sports and fitness technology, prides itself in helping users train smarter to achieve their training goals. With the introduction of Polar Club, a unique cloud-based training system that allows TripleFit coaches to provide real-time guidance during classes as well as manage, track and analyse the quality and quantity of group exercise classes, members get to enjoy a premium training experience and be better motivated with evidence-based results.

Moreover, Polar takes your workout sessions further with its Polar Flow online platform and app. When syncing Polar devices like the M600, A360, and M200 with Polar Flow, users will not only be able to view details of their workout, but also receive guidance and suggestions for improvement and keep track of their long-term progress.” said Edwin Ong, Polar Singapore General Manager. 

“Blending our heart rate and activity tracking tools with TripleFit’s cutting-edge performance classes will not only help people get active and achieve their fitness goals but also ensure that their fitness experience is personalized and easy to understand, bringing them closer to reaching their goals,” added Edwin.

“TripleFit’s collaboration with Polar is truly one-of-a-kind, and you can see it in action during our EnduroFit classes. Monitoring heart-rates is considered the best way of measuring intensity in cardio training with endurance based components such as HIIT or Bootcamp style training. This provides our coaches and members with science-backed data on how they are performing during the class,” added Henrik.
