Happy new year! Here’s our first blog post of the year, introducing our first event of the year. Calling all pre and postnatal mommies out there – we’re holding a workshop called Core Connections!

This event will be open to the public, so even those who haven’t been to SURFSET are welcome to join!


The three speakers running this workshop have enough qualifications combined to fill a billboard. They are all well-known and respected in their fields of expertise, so you can look forward to a tremendously useful session packed with lots of information and anecdotes derived from years of experience.

Kareen Lai

Kareen Lai is the founder of Mums In Sync, running fitness and nutrition programmes to equip mommies with knowledge to get into tiptop shape, and also the organizer of this event. Kareen developed the Core Connection Principles to help postnatal mothers heal adequately after delivery, dealing with common postpartum problems such as Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA), incontinence, prolapse, and pelvic girdle pain (PGP).

Kareen’s also great with the healthy recipes. We tried her super simple Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe, and it was delicious – really perfect for busy mothers who need a quick go-to recipe.

Benson Soh

Benson Poh is a Stroops Master Trainer with years of experience as a personal trainer. He will be speaking about fitness and going through how to do home exercises which strengthens the core, controls weight, and improves mobility.

Emilie Tan

Emilie is a certified raw foods chef, and she will be sharing tips on how to eat right to avoid piling on weight while still maintaining breast milk production. We’re most excited about sampling the plant-based food and SNACKS that will be available.

SURFSET Fitness in this event

We’re hosting this event because we believe in leading a sustainable active healthy postpartum lifestyle. Being advocates of fitness and hot bodies, we’re huge proponents of incorporating an exercise regime into your life, combined with sensible and healthy eating. We have also met a fair share of active mummies looking to get fitter and better, and we have always had so much respect for them.

With that said, we’re not directly involved in the event, so there will not be any SURFSET Fitness sessions, and our boards will be kept aside for the duration of the event.

However, our instructor Shuyi is a super-mummy and she’s also a Mums In Sync Fit Mummy ambassador!  Here she is, looking great in a Mums In Sync photoshoot:
