When did you start your fitness journey?
I started as a competitive sprinter in Primary 4, having had the honour to represent school and country for thirteen years.
I suffered my first ACL and meniscus tear in 2014/2015 April. The recovery period saw me in and out of hospital for four years. It was during that time that I started to explore fitness. My personal experiences allowed me to gain more knowledge on how to strengthen the knee, a common injury and problem faced by many. My passion to help and educate others to improve themselves grew since then.
Why is fitness important to you?
It is part of me since primary school! It keeps me strong and allows me to keep working on myself to achieve the goals I want.
Such as push up! I wasn't able to do a proper push up until maybe 2-3 years back?
What’s a goal you have for yourself that you want to accomplish?
I hope to be able to do a handstand one day!
I also aim to inspire others and be able to help them achieve their goals.
It is amazing when you realize that there are people who actually look up to you in fitness and hope to learn or improve their fitness through my help or videos.
Why do people struggle with losing belly fat?
SNACKS! MOOD! Many many reasons! It is always hard to keep yourself in check, especially when there are so many food options out there! Additionally, work might be stressful nowadays, hence people resort to eating to help calm themselves down.
