Singapore - Meet this week's hot bods: entrepreneur Quinn Chen, 25, and banking professional Kenny Khoo, 36.

Quinn Chen, 25


Height: 1.57m

Weight: 47kg

Exercise regimen: I see fitness, like skincare, as a way to build and train discipline, and put that into practice in other parts of my life, especially my career. I work out three to four times a week, usually at the gym. I incorporate swimming as my cardio to keep things interesting - it builds endurance while being low-impact. I also recently picked up golf.

Diet: I love trying different types of food. Food is also my love language, so sticking to a diet can be hard for me.

Generally, I try to make healthier choices, such as picking wholefoods over instant or highly processed food. I must have my daily oats, which are great for the heart and are high in fibre. Blueberries are my go-to snacks - they are great not just for the body, but also for the skin.

Exercise regimen: I usually hit the gym for physical training two to three times a week. Each hourly session comprises an average of six exercises targeted to work the core muscle groups, and I alternate between upper- and lower-body exercises each session.

I find physical training more effective for my fitness journey as it helps me build strength and increase muscle mass while cutting down on excess fat.

Diet: I have a sweet tooth - caramel, butterscotch, ice cream and desserts are my go-to food and flavours when I am stressed or feeling down.

I also enjoy checking out new restaurants and cafes. So, I try to balance my diet with one healthier meal a day, comprising a protein or grain bowl.

Breakfast is usually my favourite local kaya toast set with soft-boiled eggs and coffee, which helps me get the day going. I believe discipline is key. If you stick to your regimen diligently, you can enjoy your meals yet stay fit and healthy.
