It’s almost a month since I last raced in Shuzenji and things are looking good in the training department. I got in a motorpacing session last week where the main aim is to ramp up my top end speed. Ideally I would want to do it as part of my regular schedule, but in the not so ideal world we live in, at the moment, I can probably only afford ($) to do them twice a month.
Other than that, I’ve pretty much settled in at Solitude of Strength, a new-age, avant garde, strength training facility. Somehow, SWF didn’t quite feel like home. The people are great but I didn’t quite fit into the vibe. When National Weightlifter, Lewis told me he was going to open his own gym, I had a good feeling about it. I wasn’t in town for the opening, but as soon as I got back, I dropped by for a visit.
One of our very few national athletes who is now giving back to Singapore sports, wants to encourage more athletes, regardless of what sport you do, to see strength training/weightlifting as a fundamental component to all sports. With that in mind, Lewis allows all under-18 national athletes to train at SoS for free, senior athletes at half the price. He recently did an interview for Fitness Sutra. Read it here
