Here are some highlights of the event that our team is anticipating: 

Battle Bay Extreme

For the first time, DBS partners with Under Armour (American sports brand) to introduce Southeast Asia’s biggest land and water obstacle challenge- Battle Bay Extreme. A total of three levels- Initiate (Beginner), Intense (Intermediate) and Insane (Advanced) are available for adrenaline junkies to push their limit and test their will to pull through.  Besides the great fun, all participants can look forward to receiving fabulous prizes such as TripleFit retail vouchers and complimentary class pass in the finisher pack.

Celebrity Challenge

For those “anti-exercise” individuals, we say sit back and watch the celebrity-led teams featuring the likes of Joseph Schooling, national sailors- Griselda Khng and Olivia Chen, along with ambassadors from TripleFit and Pure Fitness as they conquer the Battle Bay Extreme and compete for the championship.

Creators Market

This year festival also includes the Creators Market (in partnership with Mahota), where the public can get to learn about green living and holistic wellness through a range of engaging hands-on workshops and sharing sessions. We heard that one of the workshops include making superfood snacks and acai bowls (Oh man! We’re excited already). Besides the workshops, wholesome and nutritious snacks will also be going on sales at the market.
