Ali Shah Abdul Rahman, 20 Student

Height: 1.6m Weight: 61kg

Exercise regimen: Going to the gym on a student's budget is expensive, so I exercise at the neighbourhood fitness corner three to five times a week. Most of my workout consists of calisthenic techniques such as tricking which makes it fun. I have a background in martial arts and I enjoy break-dancing too.

Diet: I indulge in fast food from time to time but avoid having fries. I also stay away from sugary drinks, processed food and snacks that are high in sodium and sugar.

Exercise regimen: I exercise five to six times a week. I do cardio or high-intensity interval training (HIIT) twice a week, lower-body workouts also twice a week and upper-body training once a week. I also include circuit training for body conditioning and endurance.

Diet: I prepare my own meals daily. A meal low in carbohydrates could consist of eggs and tuna or chicken breast with steamed vegetables. I indulge in briyani and ice cream with waffles once a week and I ensure I drink at least six litres of water daily.
