Ever wondered what bootcamp was like? We talked to Farhana Othman, seasoned bootcamp trainee, to find out what it's like in bootcamp!
One evening, while walking across the central park in front of One Utama, I caught sight of a bunch of people rolling on the grass, huffing and puffing, getting up and then running again. I was curious as to what these people were doing prancing around on the grass as if they had nothing better to do, so I stopped to watch.
Upon further observation, I realised they were all wearing the same red shirts! And they also seemed to be doing a sequence of high intensity exercises. What surprised me with this workout session was something I rarely see at the gym – they were actually cheering for each other, and they kept going “HOO-YAH!”
And that was when I first discovered bootcamp. With so many bootcamps mushrooming in Malaysia, I decided to investigate further into what it can do for your body. We got in touch with bootcamp regular Siti Farhana Othman, 26, who has seen amazing results for not just her body, her energy level, but also her wardrobe!
Bootcamp was a whole new world to me. It’s challenging but I enjoy challenges. I wanted to prove to myself that hey, I can do it and I did! You just gotta believe in yourself as there’s no one else who can help you but yourself.
My energy level increased quite a lot after I joined bootcamp. I was feeling sluggish before joining, but after getting used to the routine, I feel much more fit and healthy.
You can really feel the difference after a month of bootcamp. Trust me, nothing beats the feeling of working out! After around two months of blood, sweat, and tears, I started seeing results. All of my clothes I was wearing when I was thinner fitted me at last! My body fat percentage was 41.8% before, and it went down to 27.2%! My weight also went down by 9kgs!
Yes. Thanks to my bestfriend, she helps me change my eating habit. I am always the “I don’t care I’ll eat whatever I want”. Whereby she’s more like “portion control hana!” type of person. I mean, she’s lost more than 50kgs (she was 110kgs before so go figure!) so yeah, I eat healthy balanced meals and drink lots of plain water everyday. I also make sure that I get my 6-8 hours of sleep.
It makes me realise that in life, there is no shortcut. You gotta work hard if you want results. No pills or diets in the world can change you. Bootcamp makes me feel that if I work hard, I can achieve anything!
