The Under Armour (UA) Circuit Challenge held on March 6 at Greenbelt 3 served as a preliminary event to help prepare participants of the regional fitness challenge UA Test of Will.
UA Elle Adda, a French-Filipino triathlete, fitness expert, model, and an international performing artist, along with Bellator fighter AJ Matthews and celebrity trainer Mama Kat hosted the event.
The on-the-spot challenge that the crowd requested between fighter Matthews and Ada highlighted the Test of Will event. Both competed over a round of ball slams, squats, ball rock and roll-ups, push-ups, and burpees. Matthews won with only a one-second margin over Ada. Also, fighter Matthews demonstrated to the delight of the audience some self-defense techniques for protection in the case of a physical attack.
The winners of the UA Circuit Challenge Greenbelt 3 leg were Edwin Lobelia (1:47 min), Ted Waikin (1:56 min), Jayson Ang (1:57 min), Jona Constantino (1:53 min), Marianne Roulade (1:54 min) and Ericka Mesia (2:00 min).
