Not Only about looking Good April 10, 2013 in Training by Edwin Chew

What is the main reason that you are training hard now? I want to do well for my sports. I want to be healthy. I want to complete the marathon, Ironman. I want to be Strong. What about I want to look good? Face the fact, a majority of you who train wants to look good. This is not an issue; in fact it is a great motivation factor to train hard. However there is a concern and hopefully this article can bring an attention to it. I have been training a swimmer in a local school for the past few months. Every day…

Don’t let yourself down April 9, 2013 in Must Read by Edwin Chew

Over the years as a Strength & Conditioning Coach, I had the opportunity to not only work with Athletes but also Clients on weight lost and getting lean.

And that result in a “Lazy Lifestyle Phase”. Yup you are right, back to good old days. When that someone is not there to keep an eye on you, you choose the easy way out. You put on weight,…

Make the best out of it April 9, 2013 in Training by Edwin Chew

As a Personal Trainer, I have been to quite a number of condo and public Gyms.  Ambience of the gym is not a concern at all. The top priority is defiantly training equipments.

Yup, as simple as that! I have been training my clients at a community club for months. A small gym filled with old dirty equipments and carpet you don’t even feel like sitting on. However…

Remember those days when you can eat like a hungry cave man and you never put on weight! I am sure you have beautiful memories of the good old days. What happen after 5 years?

I am training for a marathon (In the Gym) April 8, 2013 in Must Read Training by Edwin Chew

As the saying goes, the older you get, the wiser you become. Training is no longer like before. I need 2 days to recover after a friendly soccer kick around. I no longer train more than 2 days in a row. To sum it up, I am not feeling as young and energetic as before. Gone are the days that I can train 6 days a week, back to back days of soccer and tennis. It is the age, the work and the daily stress of life I guess. I am not worried because it is not only happening to…
