Road to incorporating fitness as a lifestyle

What is your sports/fitness journey? Have you just started? Been active and practicing the sport you love for awhile? Or are you thinking about starting?

Exercising has been proven to improve our health, our mood, strength and flexibility and a lot of people are including exercises as a part of their lifestyle.

If you're interested in my fitness journey, and some tips to get started, then read on :)

Sports and movement have always been in my life and there are two major reasons: first, my mom needed me to dispose of my never-ending energy in this city jungle, and secondly to build up my weak immune system.

At age 3, I started ballet twice a week and continue till age 18, twice a week, needless to say, I really love dancing!

Swimming was added since I was 6 years' old and is still a very important part of my life as it has drastically improved my asthma condition.

During teenage years, I participated in secondary school's athletic long run team and quitted the team due to heavy school work after 3 years.

Post-secondary school, I picked up a love for Jazz Funk + Hip Hop and muay thai and did them 4-5 times a week. I love the energy and the attitude of Jazz Funk and Hip Hop, the music and I love the fact that I did them quite well :P

My university life really didn't involve much activities besides some swimming here and there as I feel that swimming from time to time can help me unwind during exam period / writing essays, and help with concentration.

After university I've worked in several jobs in different office settings and they weren't really my 'thing' and returned to practicing muay thai again. It was a place where I meet many friends and let some steam off, which I did quite intensively for 4-5 times a week.
