First ever Armour at the Park a big hit among Kuchingites
By Jude Toyat
After a successful track record in Kuala Lumpur, UA Sports Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the exclusive Under Armour distributor in Malaysia under Triple Private Limited has brought it a step further by organising their first ever Armour at the Park in the capital of Sarawak, Kuching.
A group of more than 160 people attended the inaugural Armour at the Park initiative held on a lovely Saturday morning at the Old Courthouse on May 21 opposite the picturesque Kuching Waterfront.
According to UA Sports Malaysia Sdn Bhd assistant marketing manager Lynn D Ong, Armour at the Park is a complimentary bi-weekly community initiative to encourage a healthy lifestyle amongst the public.
“Held over a two-hour period today, participants were led through a well-rounded workout on functional training, martial arts fitness, and the ubiquitous core and abs workout. The carefully curated total body workout is based on a basic foundation workout with a twist of variation from a mixed combination of upper, lower body, and core movement, ranging from supersets to alternate movements.
“This will help improve total body coordination with a repetitive change in direction that will also help increase the intensity of the workout without increasing the weight of the equipment,” she said when met after the event.
These sessions are curated by Under Armour’s gym partners in Kuching, the first eight sessions of which will be led by The Gym Box, with the remaining eight sessions by Phoenix Gym.
The Gym Box is the largest health and fitness facility in Sarawak, and Phoenix Gym is Kuching’s cutting edge gym specialising in functional movement training.
“We are trying to build, not just a fit community but also a running community as well, so we make them do a 2 kilometre run along the Kuching Waterfront before they continued to perform several workout programmes including MMA and other workouts before we ended the whole session with abs workout here at the Old Courthouse.
“We really appreciate how the whole community in Kuching is supporting us during this programme and we will continue to organise more of such activity in the near future,” she added.
Armour at the Park will continue to be held at the Old Courthouse here biweekly, twice a month starting May 21 and the next one will be on June 4.
