Sporting Elites caught up with Singapore's very own fitness enthusiast, Kelyn Lau. Cycling, Run, Swimming and Weights Training, this girl is interested in all and continues to do so on a very regular basis. Read on for our interview with Kelyn!

1)  Sporting Elites: Hi Kelyn, Can you introduce yourself to the readers of Sporting Elites?

Kelyn: Hello, I’m Kelyn, a graphic designer, age 25, height 163cm and weighing 48kg. For me, fitness has become a lifestyle.

 

2)  Sporting Elites: What are the various sports/ fitness workout have you done and still doing?

Kelyn: I started with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and mild running then i got bored of doing the same thing and it also become non-effective. So I started picking up other sports like swimming, muay thai, cycling, sprinting, yoga and calisthenics. But I’m just focusing on calisthenics and HIIT now.

 

3)  Sporting Elites: Can you tell us what inspired you to start working out?

Kelyn: I started my fitness journey about 2 and a half years ago. To begin with, I was never fat, just chubby and you know how actresses are portray in the movies, where they have such beautiful abs like "step up". I was always envying and one day it hit me that sitting down will never get me such abs. So I decided to try HIIT and I fell in love with it. 

4)  Sporting Elites: Have you taken part in any competitive fitness/sports events before? What are your various sports/fitness achievements?

Kelyn: I would consider that I have not taken part in any. But I’m certainly looking forward to taking part in one!

 

5)  Sporting Elites: Given the fit and lean body that you have, are you looking to take part in any fitness model competition?

Kelyn: Aww, thank you! And yes, I’m thinking to take part in nutri-girl next year. No plans in any other competition yet. 

 

6)  Sporting Elites: How is the daily routine like for such an active girl like you?

Kelyn: Hmm, I’m lucky to find a flexible working hour company to work in. Weekdays usually would be morning workout follow by a nice homemade breakfast and then work for pretty much the whole day until I’m turning in. For weekends, usually I will be traveling out for a good training with my friends or partner.  

 

7)  Sporting Elites: What is your weekly workout regime like?

Kelyn: Hmm.. Actually I don’t specifically have one because i am constantly changing it every week. But what I can share is my current workout routine, which is 2 days of sprinting, 2 days of HIIT and body weight strength training (for my callisthenic mainly) and 1 day of weight training at the gym.. For abs, it will be at least 3 times a week.
