Our Successes

2009那年四月的某天清晨起身,我的颈项延至手臂忽然感觉麻脾和疼痛,是很疼痛的感觉!轻微的动作都让我痛苦不堪,后来去照MRI,证实我的颈项生了骨刺。医生叫我动手术,我当时没有做此决定。经友人介绍下,我去了一中医所治疗,十八次的治疗后,我的病情渐渐好转,当时中医师一直对我强调一定要坚持做运动,才会让病情慢慢好转。从那时开始我每天开始去公园徒步一个小时,每天坚持去。直到2012年十一月,机缘巧合下,朋友叫我陪她去试一试参与 Warrior Bootcamp 。我当时完全不同知道 Warrior Bootcamp 是什么玩意儿,因为一直以来我并非运动健将,也不曾参与任何健身院的活动。然后去了几次,就渐渐喜欢上 Bootcamp ,他们的训练让我觉得可以让我的身体慢慢强壮起来;而且其训练不单只是跑步,还有各种各样不同的动作训练,可以加强其他的身体部分体能。其导师还很详细教导我们如何操作正确的姿势动作;让我受益匪浅。就这样我下定决心积极参与 Warrior Bootcamp,也希望借此让自己身体更健康。所幸wbc 并没有让我失望:我的身体健康状况渐渐强壮起来,甚至可以去爬山。而且近年来生病的机会是少之又少。感恩!三年多来,我一直坚持一个星期至少参与三至四次,不过庆幸的是,我的记录多是一个星期参与四次。今年 WBC 更是步上专业的轨道,除了跑步,还有多方面锻练肌肉的课程,而已他们还把些类似遊戏的活动融入动作里,让训练过程中更添加乐趣,比如:数目字、英文字母、撲克牌、掷骰子等等,才不至于沉闷。

In November I will have been attending WBC for one year. Previously I had been juggling a stressful full-time job and young family, with little or no time for exercise. My first session was with Jee, I enjoyed it but it was hard coming back to exercise; my legs wouldn’t work for days after. I recall I just couldn’t gently lower myself down onto a seat, so getting into the car or using the bathroom isn’t easy!
Once recovered from the initial shock, I started attending twice a week, just going at 8.30am Mondays and Wednesdays, I was scared to join Friday because I was told there was lots of running and I wasn’t sure I was ready for that. However, with my red card in hand, I braved one Friday and like every warrior session, the inclusive spirit, encouragement and fundamental options meant I could do it; I loved it and I was hooked. From that point on I was committed and I never missed a session.
In February, a fortnight before the event I signed up for the Warrior 10K, only the fun run though, the thought of doing the obstacles was just too daunting. At that point, the last time I had run more than just around the block was back in 1999 and there was no time to build up to it. On the day it was so fun being there, being part of WBC and the sense of achievement wonderful.
I am really not sure how I came to sign up for the Spartan Beast, I remember the warriors returning triumphantly from the Super and in particular, Tess was just inspirational. I believe this is the only challenge in my life I have taken on where I wasn’t confident I could do it at the onset. With 5 months of focus on my goal, WBC and support from Tess, who seemed to believe I could do it even when I wasn’t sure myself when the day arrived, I was prepared and ready.
There is a point in the race where you emerge at the top of a slope to enter the finishing arena. Seeing the sea of red shirts and hearing the screams and shouts of the warriors was phenomenal. I had a cramp; I had to do burpees but I could hear every shout and recognise every voice encouraging me and it was simply amazing.
I expected to have fun but I honestly never expected to finish the Spartan Beast so well and that’s taking a while to really sink in, but more that the race itself, I never expected to have such a transformational year at the age of 49. This last year has been an incredible journey for me: from zero to being my own personal hero. So thank you to every coach for every session, to every warrior friend and of course special thanks to Tess. It is astounding the difference one year can make, if you put your mind to it and have friends and warriors to support you.
Reading this back, I am struck by the fact that not by design I can find Commit, Focus, Believe & Achieve.

It was 3 months postpartum to my second baby and I was looking to lose the baby weight so I could fit into something else besides my maternity clothes and Pajamas. I decided to try WBC since some friends (Jo An and Grace) gave shining reviews of it being effective and hardcore. So happened, I got my Aunty hands on the free WEEK trial! WOOHHOO! I thought it was fun and HARD. Mainly fun though since we wouldn't know who was the coach and every day would be a different challenge. So I could just turn off my brain and get my mummy ass whooped. The members were very friendly and there is this sense of community where we just meet daily and work out together. The coaches were and still is very encouraging without being too scary to a newbie. Met so many inspiring people from all walks that I want to emulate fitness wise, especially the older members. They really made me open my mind to what I can do and should do so I just kept going back to try to be as good and fast as they are! *cough Phaik Hoon cough Silvi*  I now go 3–4 times a week on weekdays and try to attend at least one class on weekend. I LOVE TRX! Bootcamp has pretty much changed my view on many things. Gave me constant fun workout sessions with guidance from experienced members and coaches. Cured my eating/weight derangement and insomnia. The community also gave me back my sense of identity which some lose after being a mother. I was pretty active in sports in secondary school but I have never felt this strong and healthy. Thanks to bootcamp I have healthier and wiser goals in life besides eating grass to look like a pencil!

I first noticed Warrior when I saw a few Warriors working out in Botanical Gardens. Then I joined and that was it – I never left! I used to be a State runner 20 years ago, competing in long and short distance events. All this ended when I got married and started working. When I joined Warrior, I got back my strength and got back into competition. When you first start, it will be tough, but do not give up. It is just the beginning of the journey to getting stronger. (On her chances at the Spartan Beast in October) I will try my best! It's been a wonderful experience with Warrior and I would advise everyone to just stick to it and keep training!

Joining Warrior Bootcamp is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself. It’s not just a normal run-of-the-mill workout but has taught my 7-year old son and me, the true meaning of discipline, dedication and teamwork. With great people around me, whom have become good friends, I am so pleased and honoured to be a part of the Warrior Bootcamp Family.

I would like to thank Warrior Bootcamp and all of its coaches for encouraging me over the past two years and helping me meet my fitness goals. I am definitely “fitter, faster, tougher, stronger” than when I started, and I plan to continue pursuing a healthy lifestyle back in Texas!
Warrior Bootcamp can proudly boast many satisfied customers, largely due to the wonderful coaches that lead the sessions. Each coach is very fit themselves, shows up prepared and on time, and is a skilled motivator, encouraging participants to work hard and never give up. (I always run a little faster when I pass one of them!) All have had training in injury prevention and CPR, and some specialize in sports medicine and nutrition. Safety is top priority: participants are encouraged to use proper form when doing exercises, and rest/recovery periods are built in to each workout. Coaches also regularly share advice on topics related to overall health, such as sleep, proper diet, and mental resilience. Additionally, they offer regular fitness assessments to record each individual's progress. It’s fun to challenge myself to do a little better each time!
Being a Warrior, I’ve accomplished things I never thought I’d do. I ran my first 10km (and a 12km a month later!), fought hard and had fun in the Warrior Games, participated in the Round Island relay, carried 5kg in a rucksack up Pearl Hill, and even achieved Warrior of the Month! My fitness has drastically improved over the past two years; I’ve lost 4-5 kg, significantly reduced my body fat %, and am as fit as I’ve ever been as an adult. I sleep well at night, feel energetic and healthy, am more mentally tough and resilient, and am motivated to continue a lifestyle of proper diet, sleep, and exercise.
Of course, I’ve had a lot of fun as well! I've met people from all over the world, and there’s nothing that unites like sweating along with someone else in the hot sun! Whatever fitness level, members encourage others in their progress and receive encouragement to keep going and never give up. We enjoy a variety of games, are playfully competitive, work as a team to win relays, and sometimes get dirty. One of my favorite sessions involved rolling through the mud in the rain!Warrior Bootcamp Penang is united as a team by the spirit of fitness and fun, and the color red. I am always proud to stretch out my hand at the end of each session, declaring and believing I really am a "Warrior!"

* In Warrior,you are pushed to the limits you never thought you could reach, and you come to realize that your full potential is a lot greater than you thought it was. I also love the fact that I have finally found a community in Penang that loves the outdoors - be it hiking, running, or exercising - as much as I do. 
Before joining Warrior, I was an occasional (and very slow) runner whose maximum distance had been 10km. To my surprise (and great delight), all those sessions had greatly increased my stamina and endurance. Ever since then, I have been encouraged and have found great joy in achieving new milestones, be it running my first half marathon, or being able to hold a plank for longer than I used to be able to. Without Warrior, its community support (and accountability) it gives me, I would never have had the mental strength to achieve this on my own.

I gain a lot (physically and mentally) after joining Warrior training. The coaches really push me over my perceived limits and it changes my ‘can't do’ mindset to ‘can do’. They are also willing to share their knowledge and expertise. A big thank you to all the wonderful coaches.

I am someone who used to avoid workouts because I found the gym to be boring. But after I joined WBC, I found the different exercises in every class to be fun yet challenging! I lost nearly 10kgs in 3 months after I joined the TRX workout sessions and it made me stronger and firmer looking. WBC has helped me achieve my goals, get the correct workout knowledge, and most importantly, I got to know a lot of friendly warriors!

* Joining Warrior has changed my whole perception about healthy living. It has not only improved my fitness level, but has helped me improved my overall lifestyle. Every workout is different, I like that the program varies constantly, but what pushes Warrior over the top are the people and environment. The coaches are supportive, motivating and fun. They push a little further and made me do more than what I thought I could ever do. We get our workouts done and still manage to have a lot of fun in the process. I never knew it was possible for me to sweat so much, and even complete a 10km marathon within a decent time, from just a few months training. I am truly proud of myself! I honestly can't say enough about this place. Thank you Warrior! I cannot imagine my life without it now – it’s my kind of therapy!”

* From being extremely unfit, I have seen my body grown to enjoy exercise and running. I particularly love training in a group as it embodies team support, encouragement, empathy and friendly bonding. These... you can't get from training in a gym. The coaches are truly supportive, encouraging, down to earth and are great motivators. Warrior has indeed boosted my morale and my love for sports." 
- Adeline F.
The Warrior Fitness Program is an excellent cross-training program that complements my half and full marathon training; it helps me improve my core strength and reduce injuries. The coaches are truly dedicated, motivated and pushes you beyond your comfort zones – 70 sets and 7 repetitions ... enjoy. And it is also fun training with the Warrior folks. Highly recommended.
- Lee Chin Kok
* First few sessions were tough but due to the encouragement and persistency from the coaches and recruits, I managed to endure the tough trainings and this resulted in vast improvement in both form and stamina. Warrior has helped me discover my passion and potential in long distance running and I had been participating in many local races since. It is not just another fitness camp, it's a niche environment of bonding between the recruits and coaches that makes this program special, effective and fun. I am more confident, positive and fitter than ever in my 30 years of life. My life had been officially transformed and I never look back since. Thank you Warrior.
- Andrew C.
* One of my favorite aspects of Warrior is that it is fun, outdoors, has the feeling of a personal trainer, and never the same. This has definitely helped to keep me motivated. With healthy eating habits and attending Warrior three times a week, I am very pleased with the 7kg weight reduction as well as the 20cm I have lost around my body. Most people look forward to the “losing” aspect of working out and training, but I have found that I have gained more than just a temporary fix to a problem. I have a solution; it is a lifestyle change. I am not only physically strong, but I am mentally stronger as well. Furthermore, I feel as though I am part of a team again. I promise you; it will hurt. But the results are worth it. 
- Diana F.
* I really like good food so moving to Penang as an expat 2 years ago was a great experience but unfortunately not so good for my weight with all the food temptations. I found out about Warrior and decided to try it. Honestly the first few times were hard and I had a tough time completing the entire hour but the coaches and the recruits were really encouraging and supportive so I decided to continue. One thing that really kept me motivated was one of the instructors saying “It’s not how fast you go, it’s how much effort you put in to it”. I have since lost 8 kgs and I can really feel the improvement in my stamina.
- Daniel M.
* Having a busy and tight schedule in my daily life as a fashion designer, I always try to find time for my exercise routine; and that's where I join up with Warrior. I've been with Warrior for more than one year now. I feel and look so much better, and the improvement to my self-confidence is endless. Another benefit that I was not expecting is that I have learned to enjoy exercise and recognize the benefits of a regular exercise. I believe growing strength, balancing health and staying fit are what make me so passionate about Warrior. 
- Brandon
* When you are living in a different country and continent, life can be difficult to manage. Finding a place to exercise where the coaches enjoy their work and push you to give your best effort is really motivating. I have always thought that my best workout is kick boxing but now I can say the same for Warrior fitness, it is my best. It changes many things for me; I can manage and control my mind, I can challenge myself to do the best not only in my sports life but also in any small or big issues, and no less important I feel really great in my costume (my body). Gracias.
- Yamel
* Warrior has the right professionals to effectively motivate me in becoming a stronger person through sweat, teamwork, determination. I saw fruitful results within months and now able run in marathons which was impossible for me before. Thank you Warrior! 
- Wei Jian
* I first joined Warrior 4 months after having my first baby. I’d been a regular gym junkie before this but Warrior has changed my perception of how I can get fit in a different way – it’s like personal training (with a bunch of different coaches!), physical and mental conditioning all rolled into one. And the best part is, you get to do all that in the great outdoors! I know Warrior works because I ran my 2nd half marathon (less than a year after having a baby) way faster than I did for my 1st half marathon (before I got pregnant). A big thank you for all the support and encouragement from Warrior and its community!

* Warrior training is like coffee. Drags you out of bed, gives you a kick and it's addictive. Best one hour spent in a day.
