Press Release: Outdoor is my Training Ground

The North Face (TNF) debuts an all-new outdoor training program and apparel line on May 1 in Baguio City.

Outdoor Training is a new workout program practiced in the open, where participants undergo professional training to hone energy, balance, core power, agility, and explosive strength. It’s more than just moving fitness from indoors to the outdoors; it’s an all-new training lifestyle that pushes one’s mental and physical limits into the natural environment.

Unlike static gyms, Outdoor Training is set in environments that are constantly changing, which stimulates the deepest potential in any athlete. In Outdoor Training, the goal is not to grow flashy and over-built muscles, but to acquire newfound flexibility, balance, and strength to help you face any outdoor challenge.

TNF firmly believes that one’s real character can only be unleashed after they’ve undergone the challenges of nature. As such, the inauguration ceremonies for Outdoor Training in the Philippines were held in Baguio City, a city marked by challenging terrains and crisp weather climate.

TNF invited Tim Sedo, Regional Marketing Manager in HK and Asia markets, and one of the core members of the TNF marketing team for Asia Pacific in this momentous occasion as this launch also coincides with the 50th year anniversary of TNF.  Tim is the perfect person to represent this event. Born in Canada, Tim has over 15 years of personal and professional exposure in Asia, specifically, China. He co-founded Original Heads Agency, Shanghai’s first boutique marketing, design, and media agency dedicated to the promotion of action sports, youth/street culture, and lifestyle brands. He is also an avid skateboarder, snowboarder and outdoor enthusiast, and more than that, lives out TNF’s philosophy to Never Stop Exploring.
