Metafit fearless showdown
EVERY POUND COUNTS - Alan Choachoy (The Freeman) - May 17, 2014 - 12:00am

 For the first time, Cebuano athletes will be able to experience the Metafit fearless showdown. It's a 'survival of the fittest' event covering five rounds of challenges from speed, agility, endurance, strength and flexibility. This ground-breaking event will gather athletes from different disciplines to converge in a one-day challenge to prove who is the strongest, fittest and fastest. It's a heart-pounding and adrenaline-pumping activity that will test one's limit in lactate threshold, and bring one's heart rate to a maximum level.

 The competitors will be going through a series of workout using mainly their own body weights. The first round is the elimination part wherein the top eight teams with the fastest time after a five-station workout will advance to the next round.  In the quarterfinals, the difficulty level of each station will be increased. Only four teams will progress into the semifinal stage. To highlight its significance as a true test of teamwork, strength, flexibility and endurance, the two surviving teams will go head-to-head for the distinct honor and bragging rights as Cebu’s first 'Metafit Fearless Showdown' champion.

Some of the challenges may include pushups, squats, jumping, running, pulling, throwing, crawling, box jumps, tire flips, tire pulls, hurdles, etc. The participants will get to use medicine balls, suspension cables, sandbags, agility ladders, speed cones,  etc.

Each stage is composed of five workout stations, which the teams have to complete. Each team must be composed of five members with a minimum of two females. The specific exercise for each round will be announced on the big day itself.  Each round will be very short, but highly intense. Teamwork and strategy are very important as every participant  should know the strength of their teammates. The contest will be done regardless of weather conditions.

Scheduled on May 31, the event will start at 1 pm at Pueblo Verde in Lapu-Lapu City. Tents will be provided for the athletes. A team from Cebu's fabled ALA Gym has already signed up for the exciting showdown. Registration fee is pegged at P750 per team .

 Celebrated fitness coach Jim Saret, the founder of Metafit, and his wife Toni Saret will be in town to grace the affair, which is part of the Fitness Festival organized by AboitizLand, Inc., the real estate arm of the Aboitiz Group, as part of its 20th anniversary celebration.
