12 November 2021, Singapore - New Balance announces the launch of its 'Own Your Now' campaign to rally individuals to end the year on a high. Tying back to New Balance’s message of 'We Got Now', there is no better time than now for individuals to take charge of this moment and outdo themselves right before the year ends.

On Your Own

The campaign aims to motivate individuals to do better, work harder and to be the best version of themselves before entering the new year.

To kickstart the campaign, New Balance has launched the 'Own Your Now' video that features its very own athletes Gordon Lim and Verna Goh. In the video, the athletes talk about the importance of authenticity and staying true to oneself by discussing their struggles, motivations and the things that keep them going.

To Gordon, running has always been something very personal. He shares, “I was never really good at sports, so running was a form of escape for me,” which is why he continuously pushes himself to do better, as achieving new milestones bring him great joy.

For Verna, she enjoys the simpleness of running. She added, “Just follow your body and it will know best and it will adapt over time. That’s what I love about running.”


For the campaign, New Balance has partnered up with Singapore Management University (SMU) Athletics to encourage student participation and local boxing gym, Box Office Fitness (BOX OFFICE FITNESS) to inspire individuals to try out different exercises beyond running.

The partnership with SMU Athletics will see students sharing their own journey on their social media platforms with the hashtag #OwnYourNow to get like-minded individuals to also share about their personal progress and milestones.

As for the collaboration with BOX OFFICE FITNESS, the gym will provide the New Balance Run Club (NBRC) community with opportunities to widen the scope of their fitness activities beyond just running. Similarly, customers of BOX OFFICE FITNESS will also be given the chance to be a part of this community that New Balance has built. In addition, a giveaway will be held on BOX OFFICE FITNESS’s Instagram page where a lucky winner will walk away with a pair of performance shoes from New Balance.
