Malaysians from all walks of life have taken the golden opportunity to make a change in their health by signing up for ROASTERS Health Watch (RHW) 2014 and 10 were chosen to be a part of the challenge this year! Lead by Malaysia’s favourite personalities, Ke Qing and Fiqrie, the teams will compete in RHW 2014 to achieve their optimum fitness desires.
The chosen ones will be required to challenge themselves towards a healthier lifestyle by going through a designated diet plan and customized fitness programmes throughout the 8-week health challenge. With attractive prizes up for grabs, the participants this year are Team Cuerpo, form by Fiqrie, Lee Chii Nian, AW Maxine, Lakshvini Sruti A/P Nagaswaran , Tan Cheng Leng and Mohammed Haffiz bin Razali. In opposition, Team FireFit form by Ke Qing, Muhammad Azri bin Mohd Yusof, Tan Yean Ling, Tabitha Rebecca Long, Fatimah bt Mad Hashim and Muhamad Azreil B Idris。
Kenny Rogers ROASTERS (KRR) will be providing participants with meals up to 3 times a week. To ensure participants enjoy the fullest benefits from the diet programme, they will be equipped with a diet plan carefully designed by a consultant dietician that consists of practical food intake recommendations for an average Malaysian by incorporating KRR meals in the plan.
On the other hand, the workout routines will be personalized by Sports Toto Fitness Centre where participants will be required to attend a customized personal training programme at least once a week and a minimum of two group exercise classes every week according to their own schedule at the fitness centre.
Both of the teams were also given their very first challenge where they were required to perform the Russian Twist, which is used to work the abdomen muscles by performing a twisting motion on the abdomen while they remained in a “sit-up” position with their feet kept slightly above the ground. Teams were also required to monitor their opponents as they perform the most numbers of twists within two minutes. Team Cuerpo, which has won the preliminary round were given an additional 10 points as a head start of the challenge!
Participants will be monitored very closely throughout the challenge as their success will be judged according to their Body Mass Index (BMI), Body Fat Percentage and Waist-to-Hip ratio in comparison to their numbers at the beginning of the programme. Additionally, they will also be monitored on their attendance and discipline through the period of the challenge.
Any contestants who are caught cheating in their diet or training programmes will “Head for the Roast” – participants to be involved in additional exercises aside from their existing individual exercise programme. In addition, their performance will be also assessed in a mini-fitness challenge during the finals which will take place on 27 November 2014.
This year, participants will stand a chance to win great prizes from Kenny Rogers ROASTERS, Sports Toto Fitness Centre, Brooks and Gintell worth more than RM40,000 in total.
