Makati, Philippines – February 14, 2020 – Medicard, leading health, and maintenance
organization in the country, enjoins the public to live a healthier and active lifestyle through
the Medicard Supremo Obstacle Challenge. This first and one-of-a-kind activity will gather

The Medicard Supremo Obstacle Challenge will kick-off with a conditioning program for the first two weeks beginning March 16 and end on May 31 at the Glorietta Activity Center.
The activity is open to all individuals who want to start living a healthier and fitter lifestyle
by conquering a series of obstacle course challenges.

Leading HMO company launches the first obstacle challengeBefore participants can join the culminating event, they must first pass a two-week
conditioning program from March 16 to 27 at Eton Centris in Quezon City, from April 20 to May 1 at Filinvest in Alabang, and from May 5 to May 15 at Ayala Triangle in Makati. The conditioning program will run every Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 6 pm to
8 pm. Participants who complete the two-week conditioning program will qualify for the
Supremo Obstacle Challenge culminating event on May 31.

The top three male and top three female participants from both the beginners and
advanced categories will compete in the culminating event. Only 36 participants will be
selected for this.

“We are excited to launch the first-ever Medicard Supremo Obstacle Challenge. This is
part of our advocacy to enjoin Filipinos to live a healthier and fitter lifestyle,” said Dr. Nicky
Montoya, MediCard President. “This activity brings together as well, coaches from Affiliate
Alliance. Their expertise will ensure that those who participate will push themselves to be
the best that they could physically be.”

Unlike other aerobic and exercise activities, Supremo Obstacle Challenge combines
several workout routines that are meant to test the agility, flexibility, balance, cardiology,
dexterity, the endurance of each participant through a combination of cardio, running and
rope exercises, Crossfit workouts through the use of dumbbells, and short but high
intensity exercises.

Moreover, professional coaches closely monitor and supervise the progress of the
participants and make an evaluation of their readiness before they are profiles either as
a beginner or an advanced athlete. The coaches also develop workout programs that are
suited to the participants of both categories.

The Affiliate Alliance is a network of CrossFit-affiliated boxes all over the country. It was
established just last 2015 with the goal of promoting CrossFit as well as promoting overall
fitness. Coach Jason Monteverde is the head coach of the Affiliate Alliance.

Aside from Coach Monteverde, the group 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 and Asian Development Bank’s corporate
coach, Nolan Collado, a physical therapist, CrossFit coach and former trainer at Planet
Infinity Gym, Raymond Manual, another CrossFit trainer with a background in calisthenics
and gymnastics, and Vlad Salum, also a CrossFit trainer and weightlifter.

“We would like to enjoin the public to start living a healthier, more active and fitter lifestyle
by signing up for the MediCard Supremo Obstacle Challenge. We owe it to ourselves and
our loved ones.” Montoya added.

Medicard is the first health and maintenance organization founded and managed by
doctors. Over the years, it has provided the most comprehensive and innovative health
care programs and fitness activities that help people achieve a healthier life.
