True Fitness Closed Down in Malaysia

bad no good 150x150 - True Fitness Closed Down in Malaysia

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, [...]

Quit the gym and exercise alongside nature

trail running 150x150 - Quit the gym and exercise alongside nature

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 [...]

Was doing some research over at YouTube on benefits  and sample of exercises using the rebounder (since I have recently bought the Reebok trampoline from Fitness concept for RM280). The main reason I bought is because it’s relatively inexpensive and according to my friend who is a yoga instructor- there’s virtually no impact on the joints [...]

Why am I gaining weight after quiting the gym?

scale gain weight 150x150 - Why am I gaining weight after quiting the gym?

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) [...]

Thought of quiting the gym?

qi gong seniors 150x150 - Thought of quiting the 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 [...]
