The conditioning program will run every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6 pm to 8 pm.
Train with Professional Coaches
Professional coaches will closely monitor and supervise your progress and make an evaluation of your readiness to know if you are a beginner or an advanced athlete. The coaches also developed workout programs suited to the participants of both categories.
For its first installation, the Affiliate Alliance, a network of CrossFit-affiliated boxes all over the country, will head the Medicard’s Supremo Obstacle Challenge.
The group also counts in its ranks several of the country’s recognized fitness experts such as Andrea Arcega, former head coach of Spartan Race Philippines, Mark Lamson, one of the elite athletes in the country, Cilyn Abella, a four-year coach at the Complete Fitness in Ortigas, Nolan Collado, a physical therapist, CrossFit coach Raymond Manual, Vlad Salum, also a CrossFit trainer and more.
