FITNESS

I completed my first fitness certification which is the Certified Fitness Instructor(CFI) course by FITM. And, I am grateful that I received the Gold Award. Just because a person achieved certification, the learning never stops. Always a student, never a master. Mastery is a journey, and it is not a destination. Looking beyond that, I am grateful to meet people that have the same passion for fitness. Beseides that, I really enjoy the teaching given by the educator and I hope to use the skills to help other people to achieve their health and fitness goal.

Strength training is great for everyone! Strength training is based on the principle that muscles need to work to overcome resistance. When you do it repeatedly, your muscles will work hard and grow.
