Shape Up, Shake Up...

I love Shape magz so much and have been reading it religiously for years, it's not that I'm a health freak or anything (if you see how much I consumed dessert, you'll probably agree 100% with me =P) It's just that, I love having an active life!!! It's so much fun especially if you have partner in crime with you, wink2

Anyway, when I read about their latest workshop, I quickly send in my sis & my details and waiting patiently for them to reply... Finally, I got the email I've been anxiously waiting for & we were among the lucky 32 who got selected to attend their "Express Beauty and Fitness Workshop", yeahaaa \\^_^//

This workshop was organized by Shape Magazine with other participating brands like Fitness First, Bobbi Brown, Freshkon, Nestle and Ascience @ Fitness First, Avenue K on 15th January last week. The program started at 9.45 but we arrived a little late and almost missed the warm up session, so we were quickly ushered to the changing room to change into our workout outfit and join the enthusiastic crowd~ @_@

lovin' the image that greet us @ the changing room n_n

After the warming up, which inclusive of the best express workout demonstration for women to do in our free time, we were divided into 3 different groups by the trainers and taking turns to do a body fat check up and measured our body endurance in the Fitness First Explorer challenge... My group trainer, Leo is actually one of the Biggest Loser Asia 2 personal trainers, so in another word I can definitely brag about being a part of the The Biggest Loser show now, hahaha =D

In this challenge, we were asked to firstly do as many pumping as we can in 2 minutes (I'm not very proud of my achievement though, huhu~) and then we have to hold the plank position as long as we can (this is torturous, =_=) After that, we were tested on our stability with doing a star pose while closing our eyes (it's not as easy as it look okay, hee~) and last but not least we were asked to run on the treadmill as far as we can in 10 minutes time. Each activities carried it's own points and will be use as a benchmark to see our improvement from time to time...

plank and pump, arghh~ =_= ***

run baby run, @_@ ***

Shortly after that, our body fat analysis were taken by the trainers using special machine and we were advised to the workout regimes that work best with our body shapes, metabolic rates, and body fat percentage... Besides the body fat analysis, it also determined our bone mass, muscle mass, BMI and also our metabolic age. I'm so happy to know that I'm still considered as 21 even though it's only from the machine perspective, hihihihi x)I was suggested by Leo to focus more on toning up my body with exercises like Pilates or Yoga and also cardio to help burning the fat at my problematic areas... I also take this opportunity to grill Leo about my body concern and confusion, which he gladly clarify =)

I'm so proud of my too good to be true "metabolic age", hehehe X)

After finished with the body fat analysis, we were taken for the light refreshment / breakfast from Nestle Fitness Cereal before heading for the next session with Bobbi Brown makeup artists, Sandra. This session focused on the fastest way to change your looks with minimal effort which is very helpful for working women who always on the go and barely have time for complicated makeup do...

Sandra in her talk demonstrated the easiest way to change and uplift our look with only few products such as Bobbi Brown's Tinted Eye Brightener that can instantly perk up our eyes to look more awake and Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge. which can double up as lip and cheek tint. She also show us the simple steps to achieve the smokey eyes look compared to the usual steps which is time consuming and hard to set. This is really helpful tips and now I can rock the look in less than 10 minutes, which is what this workshop is all about, express beauty and fitness for women like us.... I also get my touch up from Sandra herself, cool isn't it??? wink2
