It came to a shock that True Fitness gym chain suddenly ceased all its operations in Malaysia and Thailand. Basically the gym chain just shut down without prior notification to their members and even their staff. All along, I have always disagreed with True Fitness's business model. From the time True Fitness started operating in Malaysia, [...]

Do you find yourself caught in the embarrassing situation of having dandruff on your dark coloured coat even though you wash your hair often? Even by trying the smelly tar shampoo that is supposed to get rid of dandruff only relieved the condition a little. If you work out often in the gym, and tend [...]

Going to the gym had given me no more joy, and it had become a chore. Perhaps it is now internally I had gone more quiet and hence I find the loud music too jarring for my ears. Instead I prefer the quiet nature of the soft breeze, sunset and happy kids playing along the [...]

There is a guy (on the obese side) who I sometimes bump into at some yoga based classes. When I randomly go for a class on weekday and a Saturday, he was in my class. He has been dilligently doing his best for the past month or so- and I sincerely hope he would stay on the program [...]

Recently I've rejoined the gym after quiting it for almost a year. And this makes it my third time of joining, quiting, joining, quiting and now joining back. Until I am starting to feel a little silly at times because when I dropped up, I was able to write articles about why I've chosen to [...]

Many people who quit the gym ended up gaining weight. That probably become a reason why they are afraid to quit the gym- and continue to pay the membership fees....but hardly going at all. Thus there is the guilt and self-directed anger (hating oneself for finding all types of flimsy execuses just to miss gym) [...]

I was forcing myself to go to the gym for more than half a year before I decide to do myself a favor and terminate the membership.  Before this, all this while, I've always been a fan of gym- because it provides the equipment and push that I had thought I otherwise needed to keep my weight [...]

Most of the time, if we are used to paying for gym memberships fear to quit it because we may be worried that it would make us put on heaps of weight. Vision the fat growing out of control haunts us- and we remain helpless. So we become afraid of ending the gym because we have no confidence that we [...]

Some people lose weight when they are stressed. But for most of us, we tend to gain weight easily when we are stressed up, depressed or going through some difficult situation. It is very real- and most people may not believe the emotional connection to stress- but our emotions does influence weight gain. When we [...]
