10 Commandments of Spartan Race by #MarvinInspire

Spartan Race is an obstacles race. The Spartan Race is not soft. The Spartan Race is for the gritty. The Spartan Race is for the strong-willed. The Spartan Race is for everyone! I have been running the Spartan Race for six times already. I completed the Spartan Sprint, Spartan Super, and the Spartan Beast. For me, the Spartan Race is a great platform to train your body which has a direct correlation to the mind. Spartan Race will sharpen your mind that any obstacle can be overcome. A stronger body, a stronger mind. All you need to do is just do!

How did I become the Modern Vision Ambassador? #3EasySteps

Modern Vision is a Malaysian local brand sports apparel. Modern Vision`s vision is to empower oneself by understanding and breaking boundaries between fitness cultures. They are people who love bodybuilding, powerlifting, callisthenics, running, CrossFit and the list go on. They are all on the same platform of fitness despite the significant difference in terms of athletic skills. I think it is incredible to have a brand that connects different athlete with great depth. Especially, the local brand that is lead by a team young and driven entrepreneur, Ray, Brandon, Haikal and Kennedy.

Strength of Powerlifter, Endurance of Spartan Elite. #TheHybridAthlete

#5MinutesTruth: You will lose what you don’t practice!

We have seen the great athlete like Stephen Curry who is terrific in three points scoring in the NBA arena. How can he be so great in shooting three points? He makes it look so easy on the court. It is very simple! It takes practice, practice, practice and practice. He made 77 three points shot in a row in practice before. Because of hours and hours of practice, he made the one three points score in the game too easy.
