Stanley Ng: Health is wealth

It started 2.5 yrs ago when I was 116kg. I have everything in my life as a result of my hard work with my wife – we stay in a landed house, we drive luxury cars, we have a chauffeur and we have country club memberships. And of course, I had all of that weight! The turning point was this day when I brought one of my sons to watch a movie. After the movie, he realised he left his iPad at the cinema. I rushed back up the stairs to get it for him, but I nearly blacked

Nicholas Cho: Start being healthy now

My fitness journey started on a wrong note. Back when I started my business in 2003, early mornings and late nights were the norm, and to keep myself sane, smoking three packs a day was probably my only workout. Fresh out of army and at 75kg, I thought nothing about my diet and health, and it wasn’t long when I ballooned to a massive 98kg within two years. Irregular meals, weekend partying and a total lack of exercise meant an extremely unhealthy regime. At that time,

Keanen Lee: Be better than you were yesterday

I’m a small dude – standing at 1.58m tall, weighing in at 54kg. I’ve read a few of the inspirational stories on this website and from what I’ve gathered, I think I’m quite lucky. I’m not down with any chronic illnesses nor did I get bullied in school; my insecurities came from myself mainly. I’ve been short and chubby all my life, but I wasn’t really affected by it until i was about 13. Moving on to secondary school, people there

Lisa Jones: It’s crazy how capable our bodies are

It’s crazy how capable our bodies are. Yet despite all that our bodies do for us, we somehow seize nearly every opportunity we get to tear it down by not loving ourselves and our bodies enough. Imagine completing an Ironman triathlon – your body is put under tremendous pressure as you complete a 3.86km swim, a 180.25km cycle, and followed by a 42.2km run. In Lisa Samantha Jones’ case, she didn’t just complete an Ironman triathlon in 2012 – she

ROCKstar of the Month (May 2016): Kerrin Kua

When Kerrin Kua first wrote in to share her story on our portal, she requested to be anonymous because she wasn’t ready to tell the world about her struggles. However, Rock The Naked Truth and our various initiatives have allowed her to fight the inner battle better and give her the confidence to recover from her eating disorder and body image issues. Instead of the usual interview we do with our ROCKstar of the Month awardee, we decided to let Kerrin tell her story in her own

  • Tinee Dino (@tineedino) didn't like looking at numbers, so he used a plain strip of paper to measure his waist. He needed a longer one this week.

  • We wanted to highlight our ROCKstar of the Month (April), @keanenlee, again. He submitted his story through ROCKshare early last year, but took some time to find the courage to join us. He finally came to @rockrunnerssg towards the end of last year and has been coming back ever since. •
He said, "...my life took a change for the worst when I was 15. My grandmother passed away on the day she was due to be discharged from the hospital. It was devastating news that sank my world.
•
To put things into context, my brother and I lived with our grandparents since we were babies, while my other two siblings stayed with my parents in the opposite block. Thus, this piece of news hit me really hard and I was very affected.
•
Although I managed to pick myself up from this, nothing was the same anymore. The relationship between my grandfather and parents started to drift apart. Being stuck in the middle, the kids weren’t having it any easier as well."
•
Keanen went through even more trials and tribulations in his life but he eventually overcame them. He added, "Without you my ROCKfam, I would never have expected myself to step out of my comfort zone and share my story with everyone. To everyone else who is reading this, I do not know of the battles you are fighting in your life, but I hope that you press on and in the process, remember to love yourself and those around you a little more. Everyone fights, no one quits."

  • It's not about the number on the scale - it's how you feel. // #repost @saraweeyogic 
10 years apart and 10 kilos heavier. 
I'm not here to say I look better now than I did when I was 21; there's nothing wrong with my body in either photo. I'm just here to say that the weighing scale is just one of many factors that a play a part in your journey to getting fit, so an increased number does not equate to an increased size in your physical body. 
And don't be scared of developing muscles, we at @rockthenakedtruthsg think they're awesome!

  • Tinee Dino (@tineedino) made sure he had his sweatband off before weighing himself this time. He hoped the result would be drastically different.

Someone said to me the other day, "When I saw you, you don't look like the type who exercises... but actually you're decent on the bike." It was an honest comment not meant to wound, but it also reflects how people still hold the stereotype that athletes should be of a certain body type. •
I wouldn't call myself an athlete; this is a lifestyle to me rather but I DO exercise... quite a bit... I know I don't have toned arms or slim legs, I don't have abs etc; but do we need those before we can exercise? We shouldn't be exercising to get those either! I just like working out!! •
I wasn't offended, but it reminded me of how people are so quick to judge. Life isn't about how we look; it's about how we choose to live it. And I'm damn proud of my body, curves and jiggles and all, for taking me through the pain on this crazy tri journey! #cheryltayworksout #rockthenakedtruth #loveyourselfeveryday #loveyourself #youarebeautiful #iambeautiful #bodyconfidence #beingyou #selfconfidence #motivation #inspiration #rockfam
