#KopiTalk with North West Fitness Enthusiasts
The kind of kopi I like best is … 3-in-1 coffee. However, for health purposes, I prefer to drink plain water and tea.
When I'm not working, I like to … exercise! Every weekday, I head straight to a fitness class after work. I attend various classes in the North West such as CrossFit and Fight Do.
The last time I used my CDC Voucher, I spent it on … food at my favourite hawker center, Long Ding Seafood at Kampung Admiralty Hawker Centre in the North West. With the CDC Vouchers, I've been frequenting the stall more often for their fresh seafood dishes!
I first got interested in CrossFit when … a friend of mine invited me to join the class with her. I had not done CrossFit then, but it seemed interesting, so I signed up immediately. I've not looked back since. I attend the class every Monday and it is my happy place!
My favourite thing about CrossFit class is … the energy you get from group exercise. You feel more motivated when you're exercising together with other people who are bursting with energy. I also like working with the different types of equipment in the class, such as the dumbbells and ropes. This lets you build up the muscles from different parts of your body.
As an avid CrossFitter, my top tips are … to take things step by step and more importantly, to never give up. Although it can be tough and tiring in the beginning, you'll gradually be able to build up your endurance and enjoy the health benefits!
我在西北部最喜欢的地方是… 三巴旺公园! 我喜欢去那看看风景和走走，因为那里的景色和环境让我很放松。
