Alphonsus Lee, fondly known to others as Fonzie, is the co-founder of @fitzonefitness, a TRX-based training centre in Tawau and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Fonzie’s journey has seen him transit from freelance trainer to business owner. How did he get there?
.
Through his passion for fitness, Fonzie set off on his path to become a Personal Trainer and getting ACE certified. While working as a freelance trainer, it became apparent to him that there was fulfilment in helping people achieve their health & fitness goals through lifestyle empowerment. There was a desire to build a healthier and happier community, and to do that, he needed to think bigger!
.
Seeing the potential for growth and believing in the future of the local fitness industry, Fonzie toyed with the idea of being a business owner. Knowing that challenges lay ahead of him, Fonzie focused his efforts on gaining knowledge, experience, and confidence needed to materialise his ideas. This spurred him further to continue his fitness education and to expose himself to what the fitness industry had to offer.
.
When asked about his experience of opening up FitZone in Tawau, Fonzie says it wasn’t smooth sailing in the early stages. “The biggest challenge for me was the vast difference in responsibilities during the transition from a trainer to a new business owner. Although it proved to be rather draining at times, I believe that’s necessary to induce growth. I had great support from friends and family and also learned a lot from my business partners.”
.
The FitZone branch in Tawau has been operating for the past 3.5 years, with a recent opening of the 2nd branch in Kota Kinabalu. FitZone focuses on suspension functional training as TRX is a versatile and easy-to-use tool that’s suitable for everyone.
.
People always say you have to work to earn it. Too often, we find ourselves unable to overcome obstacles and excuses that hinder our potential to do great things. Let today be a reminder that you can achieve what you set out to do, with the right mindset & attitude.
.
We would like to congratulate Fonzie on the opening of FitZone’s 2nd branch, as well as wish him and all fathers out there, Happy Father’s Day! 👨🏻

We have something exciting for you this June! 😍
.
When it comes to trends within the industry, we become victims to media hype and anecdotal evidence. We all want results and when there are enough people rallying behind a product or idea that promises guaranteed results, who wouldn’t jump on the bandwagon? Then again, there are those who vocally oppose these trends. So, who is right and who is wrong?
.
One thing is certain: when it comes to health & fitness, each person responds differently. What might work for some might not necessarily work for others. As fitness professionals seeking to help clients make better health & fitness decisions, it is important to know the pros and cons of available programs or trends in the market. We must ask the question: is this safe, effective, and sustainable?
.
Don’t miss your chance to learn from one of the industry’s best! Fabio Comana is coming back for his Asia Tour, and will be presenting three topics here at FITM:

1.	Energy Pathways & Ketones: Understanding the Science Behind Going “Keto”
2.	Sugar vs. Non-Nutritive Sweeteners
3.	Movement Flow
.
Fabio is an award-winning national and international presenter, media spokesperson, accomplished author, faculty member at San Diego State University (SDSU) and National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), scientific advisor to various companies, as well as the original creator of ACE’s IFT Model™.
.
With his years and experience in the health & fitness industry, you could hardly ask for a better person to shed light on some of today’s fitness/health trends!
.
Don’t hesitate to DM us if you have any inquiries! 😊

While the saying goes ‘those who can’t do, teach“, this did not apply to @amie.kwa . At the height of her career, Amie was the Education Manager at FITM, former Fitness Manager with California Fitness, and Group Exercise Instructor. Her first love has always been fitness; she was even 1st runner up for Miss Malaysia Fitness. Amie was fit, confident, and living her dream.
.
When motherhood came along, Amie decided to put her career on hold. The need to prioritise her kids trumped everything else. It wasn’t the easiest decision to stick by, however. The first 6 months were very stressful for Amie as she felt jobless and useless; for once, she was unable to contribute financially. Despite her emotional struggles, Amie soon realised that being a full-time mom was and is the toughest job she has ever faced; she is the pillar of strength and support for her kids. Being able to witness every milestone and having quality time with her kids daily while caring for them, Amie has not looked back since. As difficult as it was for her to give up teaching, there has been no regrets.
.
Amie never thought that getting back on track physically was something that she could ever achieve. All her time and energy was spent raising her children and she felt overwhelmed. Traumatic labour had caused her weight to rapidly increase, and that affected her confidence level and social life with friends; it was hard enough without having to deal with criticisms to her physical outlook.
.
When her 3rd child came along, Amie found the courage and motivation to make changes to how she looked and felt. “I didn’t want to stay in that state any longer. I started working out at home whenever I could and maintained a healthy eating habit. I lost 16kgs post-natal within 8 months.” Now, Amie is actively doing small group personal training as her intention is to help mothers exercise safely and effectively at a lower cost.
.
If you are a mom and have gone through similar challenges, we hope Amie’s story could be an inspiration for you to achieve your goals and dreams. To all mothers, we thank you for being you! .
