Seasoned Filipino-Persian ramp and commercial model Sam Ajdani bagged the Century Tuna Superbods 2020 title last Saturday, September 19.

Sam, along with former beauty queen Samantha Lo, stood victorious after completing variety of tasks and challenges done digitally for the first at the much hyped up physique event.

The competition, recently reformatted to #StayStrong to relate to the times, has put contenders like Sam testing their dedication to health and fitness over just aesthetics. The challenges included the contenders digitally producing workout exercises and meal preps all from home—which also ran a message of avoiding the risky outdoors.

Sam has always stood by fitness, if his swoon-worthy workout posts way before the competition haven't revealed that yet.

"To me, fitness has always been a lifestyle—a lifestyle that requires a few changes and a few new habits. A lifestyle that can be challenging, but at the same time fun and rewarding," he said in an Instagram post.
