From yoga to running or swimming, these eight women are living proof that you have to move it to lose it.
“I swim laps and run around my neighbourhood a few times a week. When I’m at home, I try to do static exercises, like flutter kicks, hamstring stretches and side bends.”
– Hayley Pereira, 27, advancement and communications executive.
“I stay in shape by running, swimming, walking and hiking. I’m currently training for my first full marathon, so I’m working out a bit more than usual.”
– Amutha Saravanan, 31, managing director.
“I attend a dance class a few times a month. Dancing is such an energising workout. Once in a while, I also do yoga and barre, which I find really conditions my body and keeps my muscles supple and toned.”
– Amanda Chia, 41, designer.
“Twice a week, I attend a Bodystep class at the gym. This is a high-intensity cardiovascular workout that builds stamina and burns fat. On days when I don’t go to the gym, I do weightless lower-body exercises at home, like squats, lunges and leg lifts.”
– Duanne Kahlenberg, 29, administrative executive.
“For a long time, I stayed fit and fiexible through yoga, that was until I discovered aerial yoga. It’s a lot more challenging and so much more fun.”
– Katie Kwok, 32, wedding consultant.
“To make sure I work all my main muscle groups, I alternate between yoga, barre and weight training, which keep me lean and toned.”
– Florence Fauls, 41, stayat- home mum.
“Yoga is my favourite way to stay in shape. I’ve been practising it for about three years now and go four times a week. It helps a lot with my strength and flexibility, and really clears my head after a manic day.”
– Jo Wong, 36, packaging manager.
“I run two or three times a week. It’s the best fat-burning exercise ever and I can do it anywhere – at a park, on a treadmill or around my neighbourhood. I don’t need any fancy equipment either, just a pair of good running shoes.”
– Sabrina Hsu, 31, property manager.
