DHL Express Singapore MD on how he powers up by cycling

What do you do to keep fit?

My passion is cycling. My go-to place is East Coast Park. I cycle 40km every weekend. I also do 100 sit-ups at least three times a week.

What is your secret to looking so fabulous?

It depends on how you define "fabulous". I would just say that I have a healthy body mass index for my age and I attribute it to good genes and, perhaps, a conscious effort to watch what I eat.

Besides regular exercise, I keep to three square meals a day. I think it definitely helps that I don't smoke, don't drink too much and I have sufficient sleep. Keep your lifestyle simple and keep it balanced.

Has there ever been a time when you were not fit and fab?

When I was younger, I struggled more with being underweight. My grandfather and my whole family are all quite lean.

My weight started to catch up with me after I reached 40. That's when I began to pay closer attention to the importance of having regular exercise and maintaining a healthy diet.
