SURFSET on Channel 8 with Lim Peifen and Kym Ng
SURFSET Fitness was featured on TV! We were on air last night on the 3rd of September 2016 on Mediacorp Channel 8‘s programme Here’s to Health, or in Chinese, 8频道 – 健康在于你.
The programme’s host, Lim Peifen (林佩芬), came down to the SURFSET Fitness studio in Katong with the episode’s guest star Kym Ng (钟琴). Kym’s a very active person, and Peifen was looking for something to challenge her physically. Step in SURFSET Fitness!
Shuyi was in the studio all ready for them. They started off with a quick conversation, in which we’ll briefly translate into English here:
Peifen: Wah, all these contraptions look fun – what exactly are they?
Shuyi: These are exercise equipment that mimic the sport of surfing.
Peifen: So it’s an indoor surfing workout.
Peifen: Why is there such a thing?
Shuyi: In Singapore, you have to travel overseas to places like Bali to surf. For those people who are unable to travel, they can come here! There are also those who may be afraid of the water or the sea – they can now try out surfing here.
Peifen: Will people get giddy or motion sick on the boards?
Shuyi: Basically no – but we’ve had a participant take motion sickness pills!
Kym: Wah, very exaggerated leh!
Kym: Will we fall down? Can we turn the motor setting down?
Peifen: There’s no motor!
Shuyi then got them on board and ran a session for them – watch how Kym proudly lifts up both legs while sitting on the board on her first try, simultaneously shouting “Woaaah”, how Peifen screams out that it’s killling her thighs, and how both of them were wobbling on the boards, laughing away. Looks like they had great fun, and we really dig Kym’s rodeo moves at the end!
