Picture 1 – In her first marathon in Chiangmai Marathon, Tan Mariviv (right) came in 8th in Women Open, age 18 and 39. 

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and also for you to achieve an optimal health to the best of your age. As for us, in Flexifitness, in year 2018, it was a good thing that we did well in our running and athletics programme, even though there was a change in our Flexifitness Runners. We have welcomed new ones to join us, so long they do not belong to any club or runners group. 

In year 2018, Flexifitness runners broke some running records and we are proud of them. So far, we also travel to race worldwide, if there is a need to race, without burdening the Sports Association. We have travelled to Hong Kong, Thailand, and Australia and wish to travel to more countries to improve in the running timing. Our time trials have made two primary school runners, at least, to get Direct School Admission (DSA) to their chosen Secondary School.  Another two primary 6 athletes have scored 245 points and above in PSLE, and they got to top school of their choice, without using DSA. 

With the results given below, we would not like to say much and are aiming for excellence in whatever we do to improve in running and hope that you will also do likewise to keep yourselves healthy and strong physically. 

The message we also want to drive to others is that we would like to state that it is good to avoid becoming overweight through poor diet and also not able to do anything about it. We hope that by reading our blog post, one will do something about one’s health, and avoid diseases like heart attack, depression, diabetes, hypertension etc. 

As for us, we have phased out the service on weight management. We are focusing more attention on performance and fitness. For obesity and weight management, it is hard to do a once a week or twice a week of exercise and aim to reduce weight. It is important to do workout or exercise thrice per week with us if needed for personal training. There is cost involved and this will help cut down medical cost of the client, in the long run. So, we only have thrice per week of weight management programme. We would like people to take note of the change. 

We also believe that to bring down weight, it is not a good idea to look for a doctor or a government for help , as we actually need to help ourselves by exercising more often to reduce the cost in health care. This should be our New Year Resolution, as well, besides getting other successes, I hope!
