The Titan Games is the Philippine’s First National Strongman Competition, a multifaceted fitness event that combines physical challenges with a time element. This event is made for every FILIPINO who want to change their lives for the better, through fitness and health. The Titan Games seek to build TITANS – iron-willed individuals with a strong in mind and body.

This year, Titans will clash in the concrete jungle. Witness steel, wood, and rubber crash against each other as 6 winning individuals take all in this 2 division challenge. On November 09 2014 at The Camp, Taguig, this whole-day event will feature challenges, mini-challenges, and a spectator-friendly event every person can enjoy.

The Titan Games wants every Filipino. We want a Fitter Philippines. But we also want our participants and spectators to have an awesome experience. So we’ve made 2 divisions that are as far apart in difficulty as you can imagine – a beginner’s level, Novice division for the everyday person, and a difficult Advanced division for the serious athlete.

THE NOVICE DIVISION (MORTALS)
This is for the EVERY man and the EVERY woman. This is for those who occasionally exercise, the sports enthusiast, the casual (insert sport here). Whether you play hoops with your friends on the weekend, stretch out and find your center every morning, love bicep curls and dancing, or a walk-a-thon junkie posing as a hardcore commuter, this is YOUR event.

THE ADVANCED DIVISION (TITANS)
An immovable object. An unstoppable force. Many are strong but only a few can be called TITANS. This division will reveal who are worthy of that title. If you’re part of your country’s elite fighting force, an athlete that has been training since Day 001 on Earth, a gym junkie who does not exercise but trains, or want to challenge your human limitations, then we invite you to clash against other TITANS.

CHALLENGES will be FOR TIME, to finish the required movements while following the scoring standards in the shortest time possible. There will be 4 main challenges with 5 minute time caps, where all participants can compete. Each challenge has a unique name connoting to the tasks to be accomplished. Only the Top 5 strongest Males and Females in each division will make it to the 5th Challenge, the Clash of the Titans! Winner will be the one with the shortest total time of all 5 challenges!

Prizes for Individuals

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be awarded to each top male and female competitor in each division. Prizes from GNC, BeyondRaw, Fit Miss, Ensayo Gym Equipment, Gatorade, Quest Bar, Fitaid, Battle Brew, Progenex, Goat Tape, Brofit and WOD Nation are up for grabs! The advanced division male and female champions will be awarded the 2014 Titan Games – Titan, and they will become GNC’s BeyondRaw and Fit Miss next brand ambassadors!

To make things even more exciting, Rexona introduces three new tunnels with varying themes that will make the music come to life. At key points during the race, runners will be able to experience the Retro, HipHop and EDM themed tunnels that will have different features, from roller bladders to disco balls, street art to laser light.

Hello runners and friends!

The most challenging annual race in the country is back and ready to accept new and old runners who are in search for a great adventure run. I’ve participated on this race three times already but I will never get tired of doing it over and over again. Corregidor run offers everything you wont see on a usual road race in the metro. The route is a combination of road, trails, grass, hills, rocks and tunnels.   You will be running along side trees and seas and other forms of nature. It definitely promises a challenging and worthwhile race where you can reflect and commune with the nature.

Life, if you allow it to be, can be just one big routine. Going through the motions can be easy because of the comfort that goes with familiarity. However, life wasn’t meant to be lived inside your comfort zone; life is meant to be explored, and most importantly, lived with 100% passion. If you find yourself stuck in a routine, here are a few things to do to break out of the rut and get more out of your life.

Dream big. Renew your love for life by dreaming big. Research, read up, and explore the many possibilities that your potential can achieve. Dreaming big is the first step in getting more out of life, from a simple change in your daily routine to a drastic shift in your career.

Evaluate your passion. Are you simply going through the motions because you no longer have the passion for what you do? If you find yourself in this rut, evaluate why you’re feeling so. Is it because it’s no longer challenging? If so, find ways to reignite your passion. This can be as simple as doing things differently, or taking a step back from your work. Then you will be able to not just work to live, but love and succeed in your work.

Summit Family FA

Go on an adventure. Don’t let work get in the way of things you truly enjoy. Life is meant to have a healthy balance between the routine and the exciting. It is what we do away from work and school that we find that zest for life. Go on trips and adventures you’ve always wanted to go on, get rid of your excuses, and live the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Try a new sport. Even rigorous fitness buffs need a break from their routines. Life becomes more thrilling when you overcome new obstacles, challenges, or even fitness goals. Change it up by trying a new sport, the most adventurous one you can think of and see your life change for the better in an instant.

Summit Natural Drinking Water has long been a partner of the country’s best athletes in pushing limits and go beyond the ordinary. Today, you can thirst for more with Summit and live a life you never thought you’d live. With Summit Natural Drinking Water, there’s truly no limit to what you can do.
