At what age, you got interest in fitness?
I started involving in sports at my age of 8. Initially, I was a football player. As I was growing up, at the age of 12, I noticed that I am skillful in sprinting and then, I started participating in track and field competitions. At the age of 14, I was representing my state in National level competitions, that’s how journey was moving ahead and then, I studied in national sports school. Ultimately, I am now a fitness professional in Malaysia.
Who is your inspiration and role model?
My father is my first inspiration in my life. He always motivated me to play football, kept pushing me forward to do exercise, and so on. When life was moving on, I got a chance to meet world class athletes Usain Bolt, Justin Gatlin, Yohan Blake, and my seniors in this journey, all inspired me and I consider them as my role models.
We always bump into a lot of people in our life, so that I am always interested in meeting new people and get extra motivation from them.
What motivated you to become fitness trainer?
Here, as part of this fitness career, I am able to change people’s lifestyle towards health.
In this fitness industry, we are here for only one thing, that is to improve people life style to make them stronger and healthier, because, there are lots of ailments keep originating in this world, as the years pass by.
What is your career goal?
It is a very good question; I just don’t want to stop my growth as a fitness professional. I am going to come out with something creative (out of the box) that nobody is doing in this world.
But, at this moment, I am working towards it to get it established to the people’s need. My career in this industry is always awesome and I love what I am doing. I am not interested to disclose what is my next step as of now, but, it will definitely be huge and it is going to benefit lots of people out there, especially Malaysians.
Hadn’t you become fitness trainer, what would you have been?
At my young age, I was thinking to get involved in serving military or to become a Police officer. Because, these 2 things are quite intense, the way I want it and resembles my life style.
Where you want to see yourself in the next 5 years?
Young entrepreneur, who launch new branches in different places, but, it is not the fitness center and it will definitely be different from that. I am sure I am going to the top young fitness entrepreneur in my career.
Have you ever felt you wanted to back off from this?
Never, because, I am in love with what I am doing. I always go ahead meeting people to transform their life style.
I don’t know how it would have been, had I not entered in to this career. I consider this career as a lifestyle journey. Given all this, my mind never even thought about backing off.
How the training you do distinguishes from other trainers?
To me, I am not interested to compare myself with other trainers, because, I consider them as my brothers (or) sisters, who guide to become a better person.
As far as myself is concerned, there are two things very important:
- Knowledge: I am ready to travel across the world spending my own money if it could help me to improve my knowledge.
- Time Management: a lot of people outside give excuses saying that I don’t have time and as so, but, everything is a matter of time management, if you really can manage your time well, we can do a lot of things in our life, in this 24 hours, which god gifted us, we don’t have to say that we really don’t have time.
Hurdles you passed by?
After I quit from national team, I suffered a lot as what other athletes went through. But, there is a passion in me that I could do it, the power of an athlete, mindset, psychology, everything brought me to a different destination.
In this career, I get to train performance athletes, people who work for corporate companies, business people, almost every kind of people.
I always work to change their lifestyle to become healthier, stronger, and make them manage their lifestyle as a better person.
The conversation ended with a quote “Always struggles in our life, but the challenges make you stronger and boost your level of confidence in whatever you are doing. “
