I never had any interest in fitness during my college days from 2003 to 2016. Without regular exercises and diet plans, I struggled with obesity for years. It was a constant battle, and my weight held me back from living life to the fullest. But one day, I decided it was time for a change.

The Turning Point
Feeling perpetually exhausted and ashamed, I knew I needed to prioritize my health. That moment ignited my determination to embark on a journey toward a healthier lifestyle. I tried commercial gym memberships, boxing classes, and even experimented with no-carb diets, but nothing seemed to stick.

Discovering CrossFit
In October 2017, a friend introduced me to CrossFit. Clueless about what it entailed, I attended my first class—and it was a game-changer. The intense workouts, supportive coaches, and tight-knit community kept me going. CrossFit became more than just exercise; it became my passion.

Physical and Mental Transformation
Over time, I experienced a remarkable transformation. Not only did I shed excess weight and build strength, but I also developed newfound confidence and mental toughness. CrossFit challenged me physically and mentally, preparing me not only for the gym but also for life’s daily challenges.

My dedication paid off, and I achieved impressive results:

2019: ON Hiit Battleground - 23rd Place (Regional)
2022: CrossFit Open - 16th Place (Men’s Age Group 35-39)
2023: CrossFit Open - 21st Place (Men’s Age Group 35-39)
2023: TUF Fit Factor - 15th Place (Scaled Open Category)
2024: Masters League - 5th Place (Hero Category - Men’s Age Group 35-39)
Looking Ahead
Now that I am a Vitamode Athlete, I look forward to achieving more fitness and life goals, and reaching greater heights. My journey inspires others to embrace change, persevere, and never give up. Remember, transformation is possible with determination and a supportive community by your side.

I am Keong, and I proudly represent Vitamode as an athlete.
