Ladies, let’s take some time to revisit your New Year’s resolutions.
Is getting fit and healthy on that list?
Perhaps it’s been on your list for many years now, and with each display of fireworks ringing in the new year, the possibility of actually realising that goal drifts further and further away.
We tell ourselves,
“It’s too hard.”
“I’ll do it later.”
“I’m too busy.”
Well, as the saying goes, “Sometimes, ‘later’ becomes ‘never’.”
It’s time to make your fitness goals more than just ‘goals’. More than just empty promises we make to ourselves, written on a list and forgotten. If you’re ready to start eating to nourish your body, moving and sweating out toxins, and most importantly, believing in yourself and what you’re capable of, we’re here to say, you can do it!
With these five kick-ass Malaysian women on Instagram, you will have the motivation and the information you need to get off the couch and onto the path of everlasting health and fitness.
