What fitness related mobile apps do you use?
I don’t really download app in my phone, because most of the time, I’m lazy to learn how to use a new app. But when it comes to fitness, there ares two apps that I love to use, which is Fitness Pal ( for calories counting) It is really useful and interesting. Another one is Nike +, that is for outdoor running whenever I get bored with treadmill.
Do you watch YouTube videos to work out? If yes, which YouTubers do you subscribe to/watch?
I still remember when I first started to workout, the first fitness YouTuber I subscribe is Blogilates. I love to watch her video because she is always passionate whenever she is doing her exercise. She gives a lot of inspiration and new workout ideas in her video. Check it out:
What is your fitness mantra?
Of course, I do feel demotivated sometimes. (I’m a human being too, just like any of you) But I have been at this way too long to even consider giving up. I have to KEEP GOING. Nothing is going stop me until I achieve my goal.
“Go hard or go home.” and “If you want it, work for it.
These are what I always remind myself whenever I feel demotivated.
What are the gadgets you use while working out?
I don’t really use gadgets while working out. Because equipment is not really necessary. All we need is just our presence. Hahaha. If I do, it’s usually just my watch (Nike+ SportWatch GPS).
What is your favourite website or app for healthy recipes?
Most of the time, I got my healthy meal ideas from Instagram.
Any words of encouragement for fitness lovers/people who want to get healthy?
When there’s a will, there’s a way!
Nothing comes easily, but when you are motivated, and have a desire and passion to truly care for your body, you will be dedicated to that vision. Always trust yourself, you are capable of achieving that amazing body you have always wanted.
Don’t give up and keep going. One day, you will make yourself proud.
I’m with you! Let’s work hard together!
