This week we’d like to introduce you to Rich Xiong, this week’s Skimble Member Spotlight! Rich has been with us since May and uses Skimble’s Workout Trainer to supplement his already active lifestyle. We noticed Rich because he wrote an awesome blogpost about us, and we wanted to hear more about his Skimble experience:
What was your starting point versus your current fitness status?
After my old back injury bounced back a couple of years ago, I maxed out at 74 kg (for 1.68 m of height), and since then I’ve been constantly finding ways to get lighter and lower body fat while recovering. Mostly it’s been futile at best, but recently I’ve been getting on track, weighing 60 kg as of now (down from 68 kg just 2 months ago) and I’ve been feeling more hopeful and energetic after using Skimble.
What’s your fitness/health resolution for 2013?
My new year’s fitness resolution would be to keep the current weight (allowing +/- 2 kg), and to work out more regularly towards building lean muscles, and of course also cultivate very disciplined dietary habits.
What’s your favorite thing about Skimble?
Skimble makes it possible to easily learn and execute a huge variety of workouts at home at our own comfort. The best part is that the app is FREE and even the Pro access is a way more viable option than a gym membership + personal trainer.
Who is your fitness icon?
Mainly because I love dancing a lot, my fitness idol is South Korean popstar Jay Park. Also because he is about the same height as me and has the type of physique to which I am working towards – lean, muscular and proportionate.
Fun/random fact about you!
As much as I am obsessed with fitness and body image, I can eat 3x my normal portion of meal when I feel like it. I am doing my best to not feel like “it” ever again.
We really appreciate both your sweet review of us and for taking the time out to answer some of our questions. Best of luck with your New Years resolutions, and we hope you stay active in 2013!
