Screen royalties Bea Alonzo and Alden Richards have recently shared their inspiring stories related to this year’s Century Tuna Superbods “Stay strong to Love strong” campaign that aims to uplift and encourage the public to stay strong despite the challenges and to become better versions of themselves.
The stars, who will top bill the local adaptation of Korean Drama Start-Up, are this year’s faces of Century Tuna Superbods 2022, the country’s most awaited and most prestigious health and fitness competition.
“I’ve heard the stories of this year’s Superbods finalists and they are truly amazing!” enthuses Bea. “They’re proof that we can achieve a lot of things and overcome so many obstacles for the people we love. I salute this year’s finalists and wish them the best of luck in their Superbods journey.”
Just like Bea, Alden also shares his excitement for this year’s competition. “Beyond the buff body and firm and flat abs, it’s truly awesome what we can achieve when we are physically and mentally strong. As we kick off this year’s Superbods competition, let the journey of our finalists be an inspiration to be strong for the people we love and value, especially at this time when we are all trying to move forward from the pandemic.”
