Tay Jie Wen, 26, Trainer

Height: 1.76m Weight: 72kg

Exercise regimen: I train six days a week, two hours per session. I take the time to warm up, with foam rolling for my tight back. The actual training is split between chest and back, shoulders and arms, and lower body, repeated twice a week.

Diet: Breakfast is mainly eggs and rolled oats. Lunch and dinner are two fist-sized portions of meat and two palm-sized portions of vegetables with rice, potatoes or fruits. Almonds/protein shakes are the snacks between meals and after workouts.

Height: 1.65m Weight: 64.5kg

Exercise regimen: I work out at least five times a week. I go to the gym for resistance training, I practise calisthenics, as well as jogging, cross training or cycling. I always try to make exercise fun but intense.

Diet: I have a soft-boiled egg and sometimes a protein shake for breakfast. For lunch and dinner, I usually have chicken and fish with mixed fruits and vegetables. I have yogurt, almonds and dark chocolate for snacks.
