Fitter Faster Stronger Starts From Within - Bootcamp @ KLCC Park

Bootcamp at KLCC Park - Maxis Health Engagement Programme

Bootcamp at KLCC Park - Maxis Health Engagement Programme


"Fitter, Faster and Stronger." We all heard it before but this is the first time I see a telco company practicing the motto within themselves through Maxis Health Engagement Programme.  I was interested to see how their bootcamp works and Maxis was happy to let me join their bootcamp session which will be held at KLCC Park on every alternate working day (Mon, Wed, Fri).

I am trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle by going to gym to workout or swimming from time to time, but sometimes I just don't have that motivation especially when I am doing it alone. From this bootcamp, I can see that they are going through this journey as a team and the spirit is there to keep them going. Even when the weather turned bad, they were still standing strong to complete the bootcamp session.

I was well prepared with my exercise outfit but got chicken out last minute because it started to rain. (I don't know why that I can easily caught with flu whenever I got just a little showered by the rain) So yeah, instead of joining them to complete the one and a half hour tough team exercise, I was there to document their journey instead. Do scroll down for the video that I've done regarding this event!!

I've wanted to do more video instead of just photos, So watch and support a bit la can? =)

It was a gloomy day when the bootcamp started, the team members doing warm up together before the challenging exercise started. Different exercises were given by the instructor to keep the bootcamp fresh in every session. It does get tougher week by week. I was there during their second last session of the 8-weeks-challenge to lose weight and stay fit. Team winners will able to celebrate with a party yo.

It was raining heavily but the bootcamp continues
It was raining heavily halfway through the bootcamp, they never stop their exercise but willing to complete till the end. Bootcamp is definitely not easy. I did see a lot of smiling faces on them as soon as they completed their exercise together as a team. When one person doing exercise, the other team member will motivate his partner while waiting for his turn. This is the spirit that we need to become stronger together.

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"

There was a special occasion that day where they have a cake to celebrate after the bootcamp session. Being able to feast on desserts after big exercise is definitely blissful haha. Below is the video that contains footage of their bootcamp session and you will see how tough it is in order for them to become #fitterfasterstronger. There are interview of two Maxis employees to share their personal experience after the bootcamp too. Have a look:

Maxis CEO, Morten Lundal challenged the employees and set a company-wide target of 7% total weight loss in 8 weeks.This was followed by a massive nation-wide weigh-in where maxis employees went around to each location and got everyone to weigh in and obtained their BMI measurement.

To make it fun we created a friendly competition among the divisionsie the division that loses the most weight at the end of the 8-weeks challenge, will be crowned the biggest loser and maxis will throw them a big party to celebrate. The first 8 weeks challenge has ended in April.

Maxis Health Engage Programme is separated into three different segment: Lifestyle, Empower and Health-ucate. For example, in Lifestyle segment they have varieties of programme like 8-week healthy meal plan, Bootcamp, Move it! (Body Balance, Body Attack, Body Jam), Myphysio, Quit it! (A quit smoking program), Excursion (Quarterly outings for employees across divisions and regions to enjoy fun outdoor activities).

Thanks Maxis for letting me to witness their journey to become a fitter person and I do hope that one day I can stay fitter as well. At least now I know I must find a fitness partner that can train together so that I can achieve my fitness goal faster. Any photographer/blogger up for this journey together? Especially if you stay in Puchong =D
