Manila, Philippines – Evogen Nutrition Philippines hosted the recent Asia Fitness Exhibition & Competition at the Forum Tent, Philippine International Convention Center, CCP Complex, Pasay City last April 28 and 29, 2018 and flew in 4x Olympia Physique World Champion, Fil–Am Jeremy Buendia and 19x Olympia World Champion Trainer Hany Rambod. They opened the event and gave talks and seminars that inspired the Filipino athletes to a whole new level.
The 2-day fitness and wellness extravaganza gave Filipino athletes the opportunity to showcase their talents, skills and physicality in both the Bodybuilding competition that was held on the 1st day and the CrossFit competition on the 2nd day.
Elated and jubilant would be the best word to describe the participants of the events especially those who won in their specific categories. The organizers would like to congratulate the Overall Bodybuilding Champion, Ernesto Rubio; Overall Physique Champion, Vhen Sagabain and for the Women’s Bikini Champion, Ms. Lorie Enriquez.
Trade and retail booths that featured fitness and wellness products, fitness equipment and apparel and product sponsors catered to all event visitors, participants and athletes from the growing fitness community in Manila.
“Being a champion is not an action, it is a state of mind”, says Jeremy Buendia. Evogen hopes to create more fitness and wellness events that are life-changing, experiential, and awe-inspiring for the Filipino fitness enthusiasts in the coming years.
