WHY AM I FAT SG 2017

 Fitness 360 Transform: Why Am I Fat is an original production by Eddie Ho of 6 Productions.

On Friday, 11 August 2017, 14 contestants walked the stage at the Civil Service Club, presenting how far they have come on a fitness lifestyle transformation journey that lasted three months.

They came from different walks of life and occupations including a nurse, a housewife, and a hair stylist. They were placed in three different groups, each guided by a personal trainer, and went through a fitness training regimen with their assigned personal trainer, who also provided nutrition advice and moral support.

The 14 contestants also participated in fun activities that built friendship bonds between them. Such as the very first Why Am I Fast Race, where contestants raced against time and each other be the first to figure out the final destination by completing team workouts at various checkpoints to receive a clue to the next checkpoint. There was also an afternoon tea break at a restaurant on board a Mississippi inspired steamer.

On the finals night, contestants and trainers alike had the opportunity to strut on stage, do dance performances, and share their transformation journey and experience in front of a group of esteemed judges and appreciative audience.

We proudly present to you our winners!
