Hot Bods

Tan Kim Seng, 57

Defence executive officer

Height: 1.78m Weight: 72kg

Exercise regimen: I have been running competitively since I was 24, and always train four or five times a week. Each session on the track can last up to two hours and consists of speed training, intervals, and "fartlek", a multi-paced endurance workout. Currently, I am pacing myself to peak during the May 4-8 Asia Masters Athletics Championships. I will be taking part in the 200m, 400m, and 4x100m relay.

Diet: I eat everything in moderation. Breakfast usually consists of coffee with bread and butter or jam. I have brown rice, vegetables, meat and fruits for lunch and dinner. I have up to five meals a day, but I do not eat snacks or junk food. Once or twice a month, I will have my favourite fried hokkien mee.

Sports Manager

Exercise regimen: I exercise every day. Each morning session can be a 5-8 km run or an hour in the gym, working on the elliptical trainer and stretching exercises. Every evening, I will brisk walk for 5km after dinner. I represented Singapore in the 400m sprint 31 years ago. I am now training for the 800m and 1500m events in the Asia Masters Athletics Championships.

Diet: I have half a cup of coffee, scones, muffins or biscuits for breakfast. For lunch, I grab a sandwich or salad from my workplace cafe. I do not eat snacks in between meals, and dinner consists of soup, meat, vegetables and a little white or brown rice, followed by lots of fruit. Ice cream and chocolate are my only indulgences once in a blue moon.
