Aaron Koh, 22

Occupation: Undergraduate

Height: 1.7m

Weight: 68kg

Exercise regimen: Weight training started as a casual interest seven years ago and now I am more immersed in it. I go to the gym four to five times a week, working all muscle groups through staple exercises like bench press, dumbbell press and squats. My goal is to maintain my body shape.

Diet: I eat fruit and oats in the morning. I usually cook my own food. I have chicken breast meat, vegetables and rice for lunch and dinner. I do not eat oily and fried food and have no interest in desserts.

Tish Wong, 23

Occupation: Executive

Height: 1.73m

Weight: 78kg

Exercise regimen: I go to the gym four times a week to work the whole body with mostly free weights. An important exercise is the barbell squat which targets my glutes. I do high intensity interval training twice a week, focusing on repetitions and less rest between sets.

Diet: It is important to control my diet as I gain weight easily. I have three meals a day. I usually eat a small breakfast of fruit and coffee. My main meals are steamed chicken breast with vegetables and rice. I may have a "cheat day" once in a fortnight but, even then, it is judicious cheating.
