“Tempur is something that we need. It’s critical because at training camp and during travel, ours is not the most ideal environment. During travel, it’s also important to support the neck the way Tempur does.”
Nick, who knows that Tempur is a big brand in the US because his college classmates used to have these, has also noticed that he wakes up without stiff neck and shoulders from trainings since using the Tempur, “Now, aside from sleeping better, I wake up free from aches and pains.”
Jaime, on the other hand, grew up with parents who used Tempur adjustable beds, mattresses, and pillows at home. “I grew up using Tempur and I really love how it’s so firm yet really comfortable. It’s amazing because it adjusts to the shape of your body. In all its technical aspects, it is beneficial to athletes like us who train so hard and compete harder. It adjusts to the shape of our bodies so we get rested up more,” Jaime recounts.
Rugby is an intense and, at times, brutal sport. Evan knows this for a fact. “Our training is very hard because ours is such a fast sport. It has such high intensity with a lot of running, speed work, tackling, pressure work and contact. So we have to train like we play,” he says. He is quick to add that the foundation of a good performance is quality sleep. “It’s the time when your body recovers and energy system is replenished. It’s very important before and after training so we can continuously improve and play according to the standard we want to.”
And if there is one thing that Evan is grateful for when it comes to getting a good night’s rest, it’s his Tempur travel kit. “The travel mattress is so soft and it relaxes my body. I lie on it and I just get into a relaxation mode,” he says. He enjoys it so much, he says that he wouldn’t want to move anymore. Understandably so, because Tempur contours precisely to the body. Evan has also tried other mattresses but nothing can compare with the benefits he gets from Tempur saying it’s all about the comfort and the quality of sleep. Evan also shares that he is one of the ‘worst sleepers’. “I’ve been telling my friends about Tempur because it really works for me. They tried it on my bed and they loved it!”
The Tempur difference
There’s nothing quite like the TEMPUR material - It responds to your body’s warmth, shape and weight as it constantly adapts to you while absorbing extra pressure. It effectively redistributes your weight providing relief in painful areas of your body, ultimately allowing you to get personalized comfort and support from the moment you lie down until you get up.
It was in the 1970’s when NASA developed a pressure absorbing material to help cushion and support astronauts during lift-off. Scientists working at what would become Tempur production facilities perfected this material for use in sleep products. Today, it is the only mattress and pillow brand licensed by the US Space Foundation to use the Certified Technology Seal.
TEMPUR is not just about being able to sleep on a great mattress. It is also about enjoying the perfect sleep experience and designing a solution that fits your bedroom style. With the mattress collection and a range of pillows and complementary products, there is a TEMPUR solution to fit every body.
The Tempur Travel set is a portable sleep system for all those who cannot leave behind the comfort of their Tempur mattress and pillow. The set includes a roll-up travel topper and ergonomic pillow made with Tempur material that are designed for better support at the back,
neck, and shoulder area. It is easy to carry and store, is designed to offer a good night’s sleep even when on the go.

The Philippines women recorded a 100% record at the Asia Rugby Women’s Sevens Trophy to claim promotion to next season’s Sevens Series.
The Lady Volcanoes finished with a 4 from 4 record. On day 1 the Philippines defeated Qatar and Laos in the their opening pool matches, promoting them directly to the play off rounds on Sunday.
With Korea out of the running following defeat on day one, it came down to a round-robin between hosts Indonesia, India and the Philippines. It was the Philippines who won both of their matches on day two to guarantee victory in Jakarta. First they beat India 19-12 with tries from Ono, Helena Indigne and Patrocinia Duffy before they proved too strong for Indonesia.
In the final women’s match of the tournament Aidee Denuyo, Jacquiline Mae Lyden, Ono and Indigne scored the tries in a 26-7 victory.
Veronika Olua scored one of the tries of the weekend with an 80-metre try, but the hosts could not prevent the Philippines from gaining promotion.
“We are delighted to get to the top tier of sevens in Asia,” said World Rugby Council Member and Philippines player Ada Milby. “It was great to come out on top of such a competitive competition. All the teams have improved so much and it is so promising for the future of the sport in our region.”
"The women's program has been growing from strength to strength, with a Silver Medal finish last year, it was great to witness them finish with Gold this year" shared Jake Letts, General Manager for the PRFU.
The Volcanoes will continue their preparations towards the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
