404 “The Dynamic Duo” — PushMore Fitness & Performance

“The Dynamic Duo”

Editor’s Note: The Dynamic Duo trains together with Coach Jonathan on quiet mornings where they “intimidate” the younger¬†athletes with their energy, mobility and strength. Proven: age is merely a number. Do say hello to them when you see these lovely ladies. ūüôā

Dolly Chye’s Testimonial:

“I joined Pushmore shortly after my 67th birthday about 5 months ago, on the recommendation of my son-in-law who believes that I am going to have a long life and therefore I should have strong core muscle strength to keep mobile, be independent longer, and be less injury prone. I am diabetic, moderately active but was getting clumsy, looked pudgy, and weighed 58 kg.

Jonathan Wong is my personal trainer. He put my friend (Kitty) and I through a “magical suffering” regime (for senior citizens, I think) once a week and we go home with homework which I mostly skive on, but do enough so that I can preserve some gains and keep up. I learnt to squat, skip, lift weights, push, pull, stretch, run, jump…and so on and so forth…activities that genteel old ladies don’t do.

I am now 52 kg. Loose and droopy skin cover some real muscles that I am happy about. I can now briskly walk up the Bukit Kiara hill that I used to pant and struggle over, or avoid all together.

As Pushmore’s blurb claims, I am fitter, faster and stronger. I am thinking of joining some fun runs (5 km or less) to collect some fancy T-shirts and contribute to some social ¬†fundraising. I believe these runs can actually be “fun” now. ¬†Of course, sometimes I would much rather sit down, eat snack and read a book all day….but then I wouldn’t have been given a T-shirt that says “Juggernaut” and wear it with (some) integrity.”

Kitty Ng’s Testimonial

“I am 66-years old with some typical mid-life injuries, and have found it invaluable to have a¬†mature trainer who understands the adult body that has experienced some aches and pain. This is¬†the first time I am working under a trainer and I am blessed that Jonathan has a far more¬†measured approach, one which is focused on long-term change. He has helped me to achieve¬†appropriate fitness goals, fight the mid-life bulge, improved my core strength, flexibility and¬†breathing, strengthened my weak knees and to recover from any strained muscles in no time.

Jonathan is positive and enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely dedicated, organized and¬†conscientious. The gym is well ventilated with an open-air concept, well maintained with a¬†friendly atmosphere. I believe that every can¬†make a change in their¬†lives!”
