It’s easy to think that being named the Century Tuna Superbods Nation winner for 2016 is as easy as having a beautiful face and a banging bod.
This is way far from the truth as Century Tuna subjects its stunning 26 finalists to a series of pre-finals challenges where results can boost a winner’s standing in the competition.
The country’s number one tuna brand recently held an exciting health, fitness and nutrition event at the BGC Amphitheater where throngs of health enthusiasts, supporters, families and fans watched as finalists strut their stuff when it comes to health and fitness.
Overseeing the day’s challenges are the two designated game masters radio jock Gelli Victor and KC Montero who alternated hosting duties with boosting morale of the finalists during some of the more grueling pArts of the competition.
Now on its 10th year, the action-packed pre-finals weekend served as the last stop before the ultimate Superbods are named in a glitzy affair on April 10 at The Palace Pool Club.
The highly successful event, attended by both celebrities and fitness and nutrition experts aims to encourage consumers to stay physically and mentally fit and healthy.
However for contestants – it was a chance to prove their mettle and show that they are deserving of the coveted Superbods title.
The pre-finals weekend featured celebrities partake in various health and fitness initiatives: Jessy Mendiola joined celebrity chef Nadine Tengco for a cook out session while Elmo Magalona took part in an intense fitness session with Biggest Loser (Philippines) fitness coach Jim Saret. Meanwhile, G Force was featured in a hip hop dance class while Bubbles Paraiso led the Yoga class.
No doubt about it, the highlight of the weekend is the Superbods Challenge where the 26 Superbods finalists were pitted against each other, in pairs via set of friendly battles that includes a cross fit race (to test stamina and speed), a super joust race (test of strategy and skill) and the escape took challenge (mind exercising tests).
