THIRTY members of Fitness Zone’s All Women Club, who had taken part in a 28-day challenge to test their limits and take their fitness to the next level, learnt the importance of strength and functional training in helping them to build a more balanced fitness regime.
The four-week fitness activity comprised posture and breathing in the first week, technique and flexibility in the second week, isolation versus compound in the third, and circuit training and HIIT (with outdoor activities) in the fourth.
One of its participants was Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Hajah Ameenah Bushral Bulqiah binti Pengiran Lela Cheteria Sahibun Najabah Pengiran Anak Haji Abdul Aziz.
The challenge concluded yesterday with a certificate presentation ceremony officiated by the Managing Director of Fitness Zone, Wu Chun.
In an interview, he said, “It is important for ladies to learn about strength and functional training besides cardio training.
“There is a perception that strength training will build a bulky body for ladies, but this is not true because male and female hormones are different.”
The advantage of having strength training, according to Wu Chun, is that the body will be slow to gain weight when one stops going to the gym for two or three weeks.
“We aim to do more of these activities in the future… Not only to create programmes for women and promote strength training in women, but also to create a community that celebrates women,” he added.
The winner of the challenge was Mandy Lui, followed by Liew Chiew Fah and Ng Yuen Leng in second and third place respectively.
Full-time housewife Mandy Lui lost a good amount of body fat in just four weeks, and she received her certificate and wellness goods yesterday as well as a one-month membership.
The criteria for the challenge were 30 per cent score on attendance, 35 per cent on body fat loss and the other 35 per cent on muscle gain.
In an interview, the first place winner expressed, “I was quite surprised that I won because all the participants were really working hard in the challenge.”
She also revealed that the first week was really tough, as she was not used to the new training.
