Under Armour's Test of Will Returns for its 4th Edition with New Elite Challenger Category

Under Armour’s popular annual urban fitness challenge, Test of Will returns for its fourth edition this year on 3 and 4 August. Back for its fourth edition, the event saw 4,100 participants last year from around the region.

Test of Will aims to provide a platform for athletes and everyday fitness enthusiasts to push the limits of their strength, endurance and power. The event will take place in Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia, and the highest scoring man and woman of the national heats from each country stand to walk away with RM3,888 (Open Category) and RM4,888 (Elite Category) in cash.

The competition consists of four challenges, each lasting one minute, and participants are scored based on the number of repetitions they achieve. This year’s unique challenges were designed around battle ropes by leading personal trainer Henrik Olofsson, and are double rope slams, rope Russian twist, reverse lunges and rope pulls. Dialling up the intensity from previous years, participants can compete in the new Elite Category this year, where half the stations will have added difficulties.

Ahead of Test of Will, Under Armour has also partnered with local fitness club Celebrity Fitness to run a series of free training events in July for all registered participants.

Under Armour also recently launched Rush & Recovery, its newest FDA-approved performance apparel line designed to be worn at the time of sweat as well as post-training. Developed in partnership with Celliant, the scientifically engineered fabric promotes improved performance and energy return, enabling improved sporting performance.

Under Armour’s mission is to make athletes better. We launched the Rush & Recovery collection with this goal in mind, and Test of Will is just another way for us to empower athletes by giving them a platform to put their fitness to the test and push their limits even further,” said Mr. Michael Binger, CEO of Triple Pte Ltd, exclusive distributor of Under Armour in Southeast Asia.
