On the beach

This blog is dedicated to everyone who wants to stay in shape without wasting hours on the treadmill or spending lots of money on diets, programs or supplements that don’t really work.

Everyone deserves to be in their best shape but everyone has a different idea on how to go about it. And that’s where the confusion starts. Somebody’s else idea may or may not work for you, but if you subscribe to it, then it usually equates to some profit for the person promoting that idea.

Hopefully, after reading this blog, you will be inspired and informed to stay in shape. Contrary to what you may think, it does not take long nor much effort. However, you may also need to change your attitude about fitness, diet and health in general. Once you will put these things as your priority then staying in shape will be almost effortless and pleasurable.

Like most people, I juggle career, family commitments and socializing so I do not want to spend hours in the gym. My routine takes me half an hour resistance training each weekday  and one hour a week playing badminton. I usually rest on weekends. I am 44yo, 73kg, 173cm with athletic build.

I am passionate about fitness and currently am studying part time to become a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer. My goal is to reverse the unhealthy trend of obesity in our society.

However, a disclaimer is necessary here. The views expressed in this blog are my own and not of the institute that I’m studying at, nor the industry’s as a whole. The information presented in this blog is based on my experience and very often goes against the commonly accepted ideas.

We live in a fast paced world with information overload. Everyone, me included, wants fast results with minimal effort. I try to cut through the myths, misinformation and otherwise misleading ideas using common sense and observation. Whatever I present in this blog has been tried, in the least, on myself. Now, that does not mean that it will work for everyone, so use discretion and your own common sense. However, if it didn’t work for me, then I would be a hypocrite.
