The Earn Your Armour Challenge offers a bi-weekly free workout session for the public to participate and will themselves to become better athletes. Not only that, they can also join the challenge via the Endomondo Fitness Application and be in the running to win exclusive products from Under Armour and LiveFit Nutrition.
Tan Mei Sian, Director of CrossFitGTX said "Functional fitness includes squatting, reacting, rotating, picking things up from the floor and putting things away over your head which mimic everyone's everyday life movement. These functional exercises condition your body to move more efficiently through real-life activities and help prevent injury.
