Hot Bods

Joel Tay, 54


Height: 1.57m

Exercise regimen: I do not follow a strict routine but I try to exercise about five times a week. I go for 45-minute jogs on weekday afternoons and run for up to 90 minutes on weekends. I don't go to the gym but I will occasionally do some stair-running or use free weights in the comfort of my home.

Diet: I have two slices of bread with peanut butter for breakfast to give me carbohydrates and I also love rice and meat. My lunch is normally taken in the school canteen so it has less oil, sugar and salt. Dinner consists of rice, meat, vegetables and a clear soup. I have occasional treats like chicken rice or Hokkien mee on some weekends.

Exercise regimen: I practise pilates in the gym on my own and with a friend once a week at the Botanic Gardens. On other days, I go to the yoga studio, doing various routines from yoga core to hot flow. I complement this with strength-training with a resistant band, and building cardiovascular strength with regular jogs.

Diet: I'm on a plant-based diet. Breakfast consists of soya beans, water or a fresh mixed vegetable and fruit smoothie. Lunch consists of brown rice or quinoa salad with mushroom and vegetables. For dinner, I alternate between soba with edamame and tofu, and brown rice with grilled vegetables and beans. Post-yoga, I enjoy coconut juice to replenish the electrolytes in my body.
