The Diet Hack Series: #3 Chinese New Year Edition

1.  Diet Food - Mandarin Oranges
Rich in vitamin C, mandarin oranges are great for boosting your immunity, and improving the glow and tone of your skin! It’s high fibre content keeps you full and helps with weight loss. These sweet and juicy delights are great alternatives to candies and desserts!

2. Cheat Food - Bak Kwa (Pork Jerky)
This gratifyingly sweet and savoury snack trumps all other CNY snacks with its high protein content.  We hear that there’s a turkey version in the market that’s lower in fat and just as yummy!

3. Post Workout Food - Yu Sheng (Raw Fish Salad)
Yu Sheng (also known as Lo Hei) is a symbol of prosperity and abundance. Opt for the low sugar plum sauce, hold back on the oil and you have yourself the perfect post workout snack that is high in lean protein and clean carbs.

Presenting the funniest personal trainer in Singapore, JB, and some say Batam!

We had the pleasure of having Gurmit at our recent certified personal trainer course. A gym veteran himself, Gurmit felt the course gave him a new perspective on personal training: “I now respect the work that is done. It’s beyond just lifting weights and hoping that the muscles grow”

We’re so proud to hear that and will definitely continue striving to raise awareness for the profession, course by course!
Happy midweek everyone, we’re back with our diet hack series! This week we’re going international with cuisine from the land of smiles.

The Diet Hack Series: #2 Thai food

1. Diet food - Som Tum (Thai Green Papaya Salad)
Oil-free and carb-free yet really really tasty - this dish is a god-sent for all those watching their waistlines! Try requesting for the seafood option to meet your daily protein requirements.

2. The cheat day - Stir Fried Crab Curry
Rock your cheat day by giving your body a boost in anti-oxidants! Crabs are rich in selenium - and if you haven’t heard the goodness of selenium, it’s about time you do. Selenium is a powerful anti-oxidant which can boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and support a healthy thyroid gland.

3. Post workout food - Tom Yum Seafood Noodles
Seafood is low in fat and is an excellent source of clean protein! Coupled with rice vermicelli noodles, this dish is great for post-workout refueling.

“I’m originally from Nepal, I’ve been 19 years working here. After retirement from my job I cannot stay in Singapore, my whole family including my kids have to go back. That’s the reason I am trying to get a skills certificate, so that I can do something with the rest of my life.”
We salute Sandesh for his courage to embrace change and for stepping up to become an ambassador of fitness back in his country. The new year brings new beginnings, why not let 2019 be the year you reinvent yourself with a new skill!

The Supine Face Pull

Our chief instructor, Khit, demonstrates a lesser seen variation of the face pull. The supine face pull offers an edge over the conventional face pull as it mimics the position of the bench press, helping you better keep your shoulders retracted during the exercise. This exercise is excellent for individuals with poor posture and rounded shoulders.

Join us at our monthly courses to learn more about the science behind exercises in the gym!
