Sales and business development manager

Height: 1.70m

Weight: 67kg

Exercise regimen: I work out three or four times a week, focusing mainly on strength and conditioning. I also do powerlifting and explosive movements to condition myself for wakeboarding. Aside from the weekday weight training, I also wakeboard every weekend.

Diet: I try my best to eat as "clean" as possible but I've always believed in eating moderately and maintaining the amount of calories you burn each day. I consume mostly protein-based foods and pasta for carbohydrates. Fruits and vegetables are essential.

Height: 1.58m

Weight: 48kg

Exercise regimen: I wakeboard two to three times a week. I also practise yoga about twice a week and I ride a fixed-gear bicycle. Yoga and cycling help build up my body for wakeboarding. Yoga helps to strengthen my body in terms of flexibility and strength. Cycling is specific to build the strength in my legs.

Diet: I believe in eating everything in moderation so I have no restrictions. Having said that, I am wary of my AGEs (advanced glycation end-products) intake. That means I eat less fried or browned food and also less processed food. I eat more fresh food, especially vegetables.
