It may sound ambitious, but we’re all about making the impossible possible. Our clubs across the country support the communities they belong—communities of individuals who are determined to enjoy healthier and happier lifestyles. Through our The Search for the Purple Champion, we hope to inspire other people to start their own stories and later on, share their stories too.” says Anytime Fitness Asia Regional Marketing Manager, Jap Angeles. Ride Like a Champion As a supplement to the brand’s continuous efforts on educating Filipinos about healthier lifestyles, Anytime Fitness is launching an activation series dubbed as ‘Ride Like a Champion.’ Converging ways to make “being fit” sound less rigorous and, instead, more entertaining for people, the ‘Ride Like a Champion’ is a sweat-powered fun ride that people can experience on the following dates: November 16 - 17 at SM Seaside Cebu, November 23 - 24 at SM Davao, and November 30 - December 01 at TriNoma.  “We seek to provide a friendly and supportive atmosphere in our clubs, and we want to extend that same feeling even to non-members. Through this “fitainment” series, we hope people can rethink about fitness as a daunting concept. Who says sweating can’t be fun, right?” adds Jap. Voting for the Top 5 finalists of Anytime Fitness’ Search for the Purple Champion commences on November 17, 2019 via
