DIET AND NUTRITION PROGRAMMES
On top of putting in hours at the gym, it is also essential to pay attention to one’s diet to ensure optimal results. “Diet and nutrition is as equally important as what you do in the gym. You’re looking at giving your body the energy it needs to push, and you’re looking at giving your body the right amount of macros (protein, carbs and fat) so you can build muscle mass and increase recovery time,” said Freedom Gym’s Liu.
To complement its fitness programmes, the gym has a nutritional plan in collaboration with Wafuken, a sous vide-themed restaurant in OUE Downtown where members can make an order at the reception area and receive their food after their session.
Separately, for those looking to experience a health reboot from the inside out, holistic wellness centre Balanced Living has a newly launched ten day gut makeover programme that helps to set you on the path to greater food consciousness.
This fuss-free programme comprises six days of meal deliveries, which includes wholesome yet hearty dishes such as a cauliflower rice salad and bread-free salmon burger, to help take the guesswork out of eating well. The meal boxes also come in sufficient variety so that you will not feel like a rabbit grazing on salad leaves for days on end.
Even better, the programme starts with an in-depth session with in-house practitioner Toni Baker, who is a whiz at sharing practical tips and advice on how to modify one’s eating habits without coming across as being judgemental. Baker will also be available via WhatsApp through the duration of the programme to provide guidance where needed, which might just be the additional push some might require to finally commit to their fitspo goals.
So, ready, steady and reset!
