Today, we’d like to share with all of you a testimonial from our client, Saki, who has been a client with us (Active Red & Active Life Center) since June 2016!
Fitness is a journey. It is the same road that each of us will take, yet achieving unique results (depending on our own bodies) ultimately.
It was been 1.5 years since Saki started Kickboxing and Strength and Functional training with us! She has definitely reaped the benefits of exercising regularly and there is nothing more satisfying than having an improved quality of life (and a healthy baby;)) gained from consistent training.

Our Active Trainers, Valencia and Nazimah, recently went for the SWF NCAP Level 1 Weightlifting Certification course from 6 – 7 January 2018!
After 2 days of intensive Theory lessons and Technical training, our 2 Active Trainers have successfully graduated from the course!
Testimonial from Valencia
“The NCAP Level 1 Weightlifting Course was great!
It was a very valuable and enriching experience. Coach Wu is really knowledgeable and I have learnt a lot from him👍🏻
In addition, I have also re-learnt many things (techniques especially) which used to be my (wrong) foundation prior to this course.
The course gave me significant insights into how weightlifting is essential across all sports, and the how weightlifting sets the basic strength foundation which can be used as a powerful stepping stone across various (if not all) sports.”
With such a great and insightful experience gained from this SWF NCAP Weightlifting Course, you can be sure that our Active Trainers (Valencia and Nazimah) will be using it across our 2 awesome gym group classes;
Featuring the Certificates for our Amazing Graduates!

Benefits of Weightlifting for WOMEN (That every woman should know)
1. Lose Body Fat
Weight training builds muscle, as lean muscle increases so does metabolism. A higher metabolism means that you will burn more calories all day long. Studies found that the the average woman who strength trains two to three times a week for two months will gain nearly two pounds of muscle and will lose 3.5 pounds of fat. For each pound of muscle you gain, you’ll burn 35 to 50 more calories per day. That can really add up over the long term; for example, 4 extra pounds of muscle can burn up to 10 extra pounders per year!
2. Gain Strength Without Bulking
One of the most common reasons women avoid weight training is because they are afraid of “bulking.” This is a misconception as it physically can not happen. Women simply don’t have the testosterone to build muscle like men. Women have 10 to 30 times less testosterone than men and have a much harder time gaining size from strength training. Insead women develop muscle definition and strength without the size.
3. Decrease Risk of Osteoporosis
Weight training not only strengthens muscles, it strengthens your bones. Weight training increases bone density, which reduces the risk of fractures and broken bones. Research has also shown weight training can increase spinal bone density to create a strong and healthy spine.
4. Reduce Risk of Injury
Weight training also increases strength in connective tissues and joints. Strong joints, ligaments, and tendons are important to prevent injury and can relieve pain from osteoarthritis. Strengthening muscles and connective tissue will make injury from daily tasks and routine exercise less likely, and can even improve sports performance.
5. Burn More Calories
Weight training has been proven to raise your metabolism for up to 24 hours after a workout. The more intense the workout the more calories are burned. After an intense workout there is more Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption, or EPOC, meaning there is an increase in oxygen consumption, helping break down fat stores in the body.
6. Improve Posture and Reduce Back Pain
Weight-training will strengthen your back, shoulders, and core, helping to correct bad posture so that you can stand taller, with shoulders back and spine straight. A stronger back and core will also prevent lower back pain
7. Enhance Mood and Reduce Stress
Exercise and weight-training release endorphins. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that prevent pain, improve mood, and fight depression. An increased in endorphins naturally reduces stress and anxiety. Endorphins also stimulate the mind, improving alertness and boosting energy. Weight-training can brighten your entire day or help you combat a bad one.
Personal training, once a privilege only the affluent can afford, is fast gaining acceptance and popularity among individuals who want effective, personalised programmes to achieve their fitness goals.
Today, an increasing number of people — novices and veteran exercisers alike — are working with personal trainers, because they offer a practical and affordable means of getting and staying healthy.
Customised to meet your individual needs and achieve your desired results, every Active Red personal training programme is managed by a private coach.
Your coach is a certified fitness professional who will:
• Motivate you
• Monitor your performance
• Work and share the responsibilities of your fitness programme with you
• Encourage and support you as you progress towards your fitness goals
Active Red’s personal trainers wear many hats and play many roles — serving not only as coaches, but also as confidants, role models, educators and motivators.
Depending on your needs and busy work schedule, you can opt for:
• Regular sessions of two to three times a week You are more likely to stick to your programme because you are accountable to someone else (your personal trainer) for your exercise time.
• Occasional/Periodic exercise sessions You are the busy executive or veteran exerciser, seeing a trainer only on occasion to update your existing exercise regimen, or for periodic fitness testing.
Personal attention during exercise is the primary role of personal trainers. From the fundamentals of strength and aerobic training to the proper and safe execution of various exercises, you will be taught a balanced approach to fitness.
Personal training is not a luxury. It’s a great investment of your time for your health and well-being.

Nazimah Aziz, aged 30+
” 2 years ago (back in 2014), I decided to lead a healthy lifestyle. I chanced upon Active Red when I was googling up on kickboxing classes for ladies. I joined the Kickboxing Fitness Classes and haven’t looked back since.
The classes helped me to keep on tract on my fitness journey and inspired me to re-look my career options. I have enjoyed the classes and would love to see myself helping others in similar situations as I was. “
