Back in November, I attended an exclusive bootcamp session by Women’s Health Magazine Malaysia and Calvin Klein Performance. Held at Celebrity Fitness Mid Valley, only 60 ladies were chosen for this event so needless to say, I was incredibly lucky to be able to be part of such an event.
8.00am – Registration and T-shirt collection (Celebrity Fitness, Mid Valley)
8.30am – Bootcamp starts
10.00am – Bootcamp ends (proceed to the new Calvin Klein Performance outlet)
10.30am – Introduction of The Fitness Squad by Editor-in-Chief Sueann Chong and styling talk by Fashion and Beauty Editor Audra Roslani
10.45am – Refreshment, Shopping & collection of goodie bags
11.30am – End (announcement of selfie contest winners)
After collecting and changing into our Calvin Klein workout top, we were ushered into an air-conditioned hall to do 10 – 15 minutes of light warmups. After a quick speech by Sueann, editor of Women’s Health Malaysia, we were divided into groups of 20 and our trainers of the day led us to different workout stations.
There are 3 stations, each of which has 2 trainers teaching us how to do 4 types of HIIT (high-intensity training) exercises. We have 1 minute to complete each exercise before switching to the next one. Thankfully, I’m familiar with all of the exercises but that didn’t mean I was breezing away!
- Elbow Plank
- Walking Lunges
- Bodyweight Squats
- Lizard Jumps
- Plank Jacks
- Mountain Climbers
- Flutter Jacks
- Lateral Skater Jumps
- Push Up and Medicine Ball Tap
- Squat Jumps
- Jumping Lunges
Whew! It was one challenging bootcamp session for me, especially when it came to Lateral Skater Jumps. I was (still am) rather uncoordinated whenever legs are involved, so I had to stop a few times to find my balance and get the moves right, only managing to do so during the last 20 second of the interval (oops).
After our cooldown and a quick photo session with the entire crew, we went down to the Calvin Klein Performance outlet where refreshments were served courtesy of Delicious Café. All of us were also entitled to a 30% storewide discount and a shot at winning RM500 CK Performance shopping vouchers. Even though I didn’t win, I was still happy I got a free workout top and session that day.
I would like to thank Women’s Health Magazine Malaysia for their efforts in empowering women to look and feel their best regardless of age, size, and lifestyle. Looking forward to the next Fitness Squad session!
