PR: Under Armour celebrates Stephen Curry’s second consecutive Kia NBA MVP Award with limited edition back-to-back shoe pack

Manila, August 2016 – U.S. high performance sports apparel label Under Armour celebrates U.S. National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar Stephen Curry’s outstanding season performance and second consecutive Kia NBA MVP Award with the Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack, containing a re-release of the Curry One MVP and a new Curry Two MVP colourway.


Curry’s impression on the sport of basketball is a lesson in the power of perseverance, through sheer will and hard work. In the 2014-2015 season, Curry impressed all by being the first player ever to hit 300 three-pointers in a season. He claimed the 2014-15 Kia NBA MVP Award for his performance and earned his first Larry O’Brien World Championship trophy. Following that, in the 2015-2016 season, he helped to lead the Golden State Warriors to the single-season record for wins, shattered his own three-point record of 400 three-pointers in a season, led the league in scoring and joined the prestigious 50-40-90 shooting club.


For his outstanding achievements, Curry earned the 2015-16 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award. He is the 11th player (third point guard) in league history to earn the award in back-to-back seasons.


“Stephen Curry’s impact on the game of basketball is immeasurable,” said Kip Fulks, Chief Marketing Officer, Under Armour. “His game and will to dominate is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the NBA, and his cultural reach off the court is equally transcendent. At Under Armour we are thrilled and humbled to be alongside Stephen on this journey, and look forward to his continued perseverance in making himself a better athlete every single day.”


Commemorating the signature footwear Curry wore in the back-to-back MVP seasons, the Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack has sleek gold colours and design elements, reinforced by Under Armour’s innovative technology. It echoes the relentless strength and tenacity demonstrated by Curry, whose ability to hit shots off the dribble, in traffic and from incredible distance took the world by storm.


The Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack will be available exclusively on and Titan retail stores.


PR: Under Armour expands reach in PH by opening new brand house at TriNoma

Check out the latest Under Armour store in the Metro! The 4th actually! Let us all welcome (with open arms *wink*) UNDER ARMOUR TRINOMA!!!!


Under Armour finds a new home at Ayala Malls’ shopping center in Quezon City.



The TriNoma brand house of the world’s innovative sports apparel is set to be the fifth Under Armour branch in the Philippines


MANILA, PHILIPPINES  Regarded as the most innovative sports and fitness clothing line in the world today, Under Armour is extending its reach in the Philippines as it launches a new brand house in Metro Manila.

Under Armour will formally open a branch at Level 3 of the TriNoma Mall in Quezon City on Friday, August 12.

The grand opening event will be held on Saturday, August 13, with Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) superstars Asi Taulava and Jervy Cruz serving as special guests

Taulava, a Filipino-Tongan cager who has been strutting his wares on the PBA court for 16 years in five different teams, copped the league’s Most Valuable Player trophy in 2003 and led the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters to the All-Filipino Conference title in the same year.

Known by his moniker “The Rock” due to his prowess in the shaded lane, Taulava likewise represented flag and country in international competitions as he suited up for the Philippine national team on several occasions. And now, he is currently the starting center of the NLEX Road Warriors.

Meanwhile, Cruz rose to prominence in the collegiate ranks when he steered the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers to the UAAP Promised Land in 2006.

Proving that skill could topple height, Cruz managed to elevate his on-court stature as a legitimate inside threat in his first few years in the PBA , now part of the most prominent PBA team in the country- Ginebra.

Taulava and Cruz will be offering a special treat to Under Armour aficionados as both men are slated to conduct a basketball clinic onAugust 13, 4:00pm, at the TriNoma activity center.

Aside from Taulava and Cruz’s free basketball workshop, Under Armour fans will also be given a chance to unleash their inner Stephen Curry with the UA Basketball Shootout Challenge, where qualified contestants will go head-to-head by showcasing their three-point shooting skills.

Show us your 3-point shooting skills! #IWill #UnderArmourPH

Women of Will: PH Armour Day for Women

Last March 12, I was given the priveledge to represent again for an Under Armour event. In celebration of the International Women’s Month, Under Armour (UA) Philippines lined up some great activities for women at the Chi Spa in EDSA Shangri La.

Seeing the itinerary, I got thrilled, there was Yoga session, dancing activity and pampering. Something I really needed at that time. I considered it as my “Me Time”, being away from my boys.

What I am excited about was the Yoga Session. Aside from it will help me for my #OplanTaktakKalawang, because I badly need the stretching for my 5K run the next day, but also I will get a chance to do an Ashtanga Yoga with Bubbles Paraiso, celebrity and certified Yoga Instructor.

Oh! I felt energized after that session. I can feel the positive energy from the gushing waters of the fountain outside, the birds chirping and the breeze of the wind drying my perspiration at the same time cooling my body. Wearing the Under Armour top feels good and really comfortable as it was not absorbing sweat thus kept me dry throughout the activity. We were served with pica pica and fruits and herbs infused refreshments after.

Introduction of the UA Ambassadors commenced. Gretchen Ho, the power couple Coaches Jim and Toni Saret and Bubbles Paraiso gave their women empowering tips to becoming a fit individual. Social media influencer, trainer to celebrities, very fit mom (you should see her AMAZING Abs) and UA brand user, Kat Geronimo @mamakatfitness also gave some insights and her experiences with the brand in her fitness journey and being an inspiration to others.

Raffle prizes were also given away.. Under Armour bags were awarded to lucky attendees who were picked. Ms. Cheshire Que, EDSA Shangri La’s The Health Club Ambassador and Dietician was the very lucky one to be picked to win the Head- to -Toe Under Armour prize. How generous of UA Philippines indeed!

Shape Magazine prepared a very energetic and sexy activity which they called “Gurlesque“. Its a dance workout, like Zumba, but more classy and sexy. Its supposed to be danced wearing heels, which makes it more sophisticated and effective workout, because the balance will be coming from the abdominals. Led by Bench Ortiz we danced like those Man in Heels viral on Youtube.

Here is clip of Bench’s class at Gold’s Gym, to give you an idea of what dance we did. Just imagine him wearing a 5-inch platform mid high boots. *wink*

To wrap up the day, I tried Chi Spa’s 10-minute massage to loosen and relax my shoulder muscles before heading home.

Thank you soo much, Que and Jinoe Gavan for this opportunity. Under Armour Philippines, Ms. Christine Majadillas and Ms. Anj Casimiro for the invite and the generous take aways. Hope to see you again soon!
