What fitness related mobile apps do you use?
I don’t use the fitness mobile apps I have often but the ones I have at the moment are My Fit and Body space.
Do you watch YouTube videos to work out? If yes, which YouTubers do you subscribe to/watch?
Yes most definitely. Aesthetic idols such as Jeff Cavaliere from Athlean-X or Passion4Profession (This one isn’t a person) and Christian Guzman.
What is your fitness mantra?
Initially I worked out to stay healthy and fit and the thing that kept me going was to kill boredom. Eventually, it became a commitment and developed into a habit. I have the urge to hit the gym at least 4 times a week and if I don’t, my mind would be disturbed with the conscious of guilt.
What are the gadgets you use while working out?
An iPod nano or my iPhone 6? I usually have my iPod with me instead to prevent any distractions.
What is your favourite website/app for healthy recipes?
I’m no extreme fitness enthusiast nor am I an expert in nutrition and diet plans. I do get my food at foodmattersme.com.my whilst I’m at work though but I do not go to the extent to search for healthy recipes.
Any words of encouragement to fitness lovers/people who want to get healthy?
Stay committed to your work out and diet. A little effort goes a long way in the long run. Plus, it’s better to do something than to do nothing productive at all.
