Actually, it was a total accident. Frankly speaking, I’ve never thought of becoming a Personal Trainer at all. 18 years ago, after my National Service, I was doing some modelling work promoting casual wear for some small companies in order to earn some extra bucks. Since my income was not sufficient, I was always looking through the papers for new opportunities when I came across the Manhunt Contest in 2001. Well, even though I didn’t have a nice body at that time, I took part in it simply for more exposure for myself. And guess what? I was one of the finalists and even won an award – which was so unbelievable!
After the 4-month contest, I took a 2 weeks break and started looking for work opportunities again. I happened to be traveling along Orchard Road in a bus towards home after a job interview. I passed by California Fitness Orchard and something struck me to turn back and take a second glimpse at it. I had a strong feeling that I should just try my luck and see if something could work out. The next day, I went there for an interview with my tie on. Many people recognized me from the Manhunt contest. Wow! That was a great feeling! Interview was done, and I started work immediately the following week. That was how I got involved in the fitness industry. Now it has become my passion – a passion which I’ve always thought not possible.
What’s the best thing about being a Fitness Professional?
The whole works – walking the talk, building discipline, having dedication, following sound nutrition, working-out, feeling energetic and looking good.
What’s the worst thing then about being a Fitness Professional?
The pressure and stress of always having to set an example for others to follow.
Can you tell us more about your fitness philosophy?
I believe that Fitness is one of the most important things in life that you shouldn’t compromise on with anything else – at all times. No matter what, you have to put aside at least 3-hours a week minimum, without fail, in order to have a healthier & stronger you. Yes, work comes first, I’m not denying the fact, but I’m not telling you to compromise your health with wealth. At the end of the day, what is Wealth without Health, think about it!
