Meet the founders of @bstudiosfitness
Meet the founders of @bstudiosfitness "Bumps, Babies and Burpees" – pre and post natal fitness studio. . Shin Loh, 37 - mum to 5 year old twin girls and currently expecting baby number 3. . Nadia Azahari, 34 - mum to 2 boys, a toddler and a newborn. . Yunny Gan, 35 - mum to a 3 year old boy. . The B Studios co-founders, Shin, Nadia and Yunny, have a close friendship and great chemistry between them. They are very chatty and warm and you may find yourself just sitting back and listening to their amusing non-stop banter. . The 3 friends decided to open B Studios a year ago, out of their passion for fitness and motherhood. “We found that there wasn’t a place available for women to work out if they were pregnant, or if they had a baby to look after. We experienced this ourselves as we all have young children, and we also had many friends with this issue. So, we decided to do something about it.” . They initially started their baby friendly workouts in a park, and gradually moved into B Studios located in Jalan Telawi, Bangsar. As B Studio’s name suggests, they have fitness classes catered to pregnant mums, postnatal mums and also regular fitness classes. . Living in Malaysia, where the culture is still very much traditional, pregnancy is regarded as a truly special time where the mum should sit down, rest more, eat more and exercising is uncommon. . Asked if they encountered this obstacle, “Yes definitely. The awareness is still not there regarding exercising during pregnancy, although it is slowly growing. So, we have to do a lot of education with our clients and teach them that exercise is actually recommended in pregnancy. If you don’t exercise, you actually run more risk of getting medical complications.” . “Sometimes, it’s the husband or the families who are more concerned so we spend time talking and reassuring them. It’s great to have role models like Serena Williams who was pregnant when she won the Australian Open 2017!” . All 3 women are ACE Certified Personal Trainers, have done Bump and Beyond : Training Pregnant and Postpartum Clients course as well as a multitude of other related courses.

At 57, Cheah Su Lin is energetic, lean, and a picture of health and vitality.
.
“In the West, senior trainers are preferred by senior clients but this is not the case in Asia. People often say to me “Wah! You are over 50 and you look like this.” While this is often expressed as a compliment, Su Lin thinks the reaction to her physical outlook is due to the general perception that anyone categorised as senior is “grey and useless.” She fiercely believes that this perception should be changed.
.
As an active kid, Su Lin was a competitive swimmer. She and her sisters are SCUBA diving instructors. With a love for the sea, she is active in sailing and is a Research Consultant within Asia Pacific’s recreational marine industry.
.
When she turned 50, Su Lin joined a gym and became a personal trainer 2 years later. “People think I’m an exception, but I don’t have to be. The senior demographic is the fastest growing; along with it their spending power. We are well-informed and well-travelled. Many do not conform to the expected “norms” and many of us would like to stay working in a profession we feel passionate about.”
.
Passionate is an adjective that well describes Su Lin, who has a host of certifications under her belt. She is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Active Aging Exercise Specialist, has done Training Pre and Postnatal Clients, TWIST and Self Myofascial Release courses. The ACE Health Coach certification is just the latest feather in her cap.
.
“I really enjoy and believe in the health coaching aspect of my job. Yes, exercise and nutrition are both important, but what’s equally important is connecting with my clients; finding out what works and what doesn’t, just asking about their day, their obstacles that they face in attaining their goals and helping them work through it. It’s all about behaviour and lifestyle change. In the future, I look forward to collaborating with practitioners in both mainstream and alternative medicine including osteopathy, neuropathy, physiotherapy and kinesiology, as well as continuing my education in fascial function and therapy.”

A mini #throwback 😍 Along with other FEA Edutrainers & Edupartners in Asia, the FITM Academic Team had the privilege of attending the FEA Edutrainer Summit 2019 held in Bali recently. .
While this summit was a great opportunity to meet and learn from each other, a huge emphasis was put on discussing areas of improvement in course delivery. Some of the topics covered throughout these 2 days were FEA Certified Fitness Practitioner updates by @yeoheeling, Art of Edutraining by Jerrican Tan, Neural and Hormonal Responses to Exercise, and Bioenergetics and Exercise by the one and only Fabio Comana.
.
Big thanks to FEA for organizing this summit and all the presenters for the fruitful sessions! Not forgetting the fun we had with @ChrisChiam who led an animal flow workout with the team, and @KimBoey for the inspiring workout games.
.
If you want to get certified in fitness, learn how to train and manage clients, know strategies to match diverse clientele and to be trained on safe and effective exercise techniques and guidelines, consider the FEA Certified Fitness Practitioner (CFP) course. Fabio Comana, who was the ACE-IFT model creator, has officially been appointed as an FEA Academic Consultant and is co-contributing to the development of the FEA-CFP course. .
