Renz Lou Lagria of #TeamRunnerRocky Wins "R U Tough Enough?" Championship!

He was first known being one of the members of the trending "Igorot Hotties" after the viral videos and photos of the 2017 Panagbenga Festival in Baguio which spread like wild fire in Social Media and in the national television. He was even known as Mr. Cordillera in their region dominating different pageant competitions. But today, he got a new title!

Renz Lou Lagria, our very own Team Runner Rocky newbie member is now dubbed as the "Toughest Pinoy" after winning championship in the recently concluded KIX's "R U Tough Enough?" (RUTE) obstacle competition grand finals held at the SM Mall of Asia, October 20, 2017. 

Lagria who is under Team Arnold vested the other 9 finalists in the said intense competition. In the final round, Lagria beat the toughest Pinay under Team Aubrey in a stiff one-on-one challenge testing the strength of a Man versus Woman challenge!

But aside from Team RR, Lagria's friends, fans, and supporters were all present to show support to their idol! Then even printed a tarpaulin of Renz which they raised in every turn of Renz in the competition. Loud screams and shouts also surrounded the whole Music Hall of SM Mall of Asia when Lagria completed a particular obstacle.

But among his teams, fans, and friends, the most important supporter of Renz during the competition is his family! His loving mother and his cute little brother straight from Baguio came in the venue to support him!

This 20-year old Renz Lou Lagria is the youngest of all the contestants. And yet, he proved himself that he is the strongest and the toughest! He is carrying the title of "fit-fluencer" when he join the competition because of his strong followers and influence in Social Media at the same time, his fitness enthusiasm greatly encourages people to stay fit and healthy! 

Prior to winning in this competition, Lagria's life story is truly an inspiring and interesting one. At a young age, he worked as a construction worker to support his studies. There were also times that he needs to stop school to support and help his family.   

Right now, aside from modelling and as a fitness coach, Lagria is also busy in his studies taking up a Financial Management course in the University of Cordillera.
