Hobby #4 - Testosterone Induction

Lift that weight baby!

My housemates; Anep, Rusydi, and Zan Peng would tag along as well whenever I hit the gym we frequent to in Wangsa Maju every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights.

Owh yeah..there’s nothing quite like the smell of sweat that lingers in the air; the loud music with pumping bass; the grunts, groans and clanking of metal; and of course – my personal favourite – the hot babes in tight clothing to get those testosterone charging.

Yes sir.

You ain’t a real man unless you hit the gym. Be it for fitness reasons, to lose that flabby gut, or aiming to get a beach-worthy body with a set of solid six-pack abs, the gym suits your needs.

I’m talking bout a proper establishments with arrays of advanced equipments to achieve the aforementioned objectives, and not just some shoddy ‘backyard’ gym. Although, any gym could help you achieve your goals, a proper gym with experienced professionals would ensure you get your intended results faster and better.

If you live in and around KL, and the Klang Valley, there are lots of gyms to choose from, among many others:

Twin Towers Fitness Centre

  • KLCC

Celebrity Fitness
  • Subang Parade, Subang Jaya
  • Bangsar Village II, Bangsar

Fitness First

  • The Curve, Mutiara Damansara
  • IOI Mall, Puchong
  • AEON Bukit Tinggi, Klang
  • Menara Maxis, KLCC

California Fitness

  • Mid-Valley Megamall, Mid-Valley
  • Menara Standard Chartered, Bukit Bintang

True Fitness

  • USJ 10, Subang Jaya
  • Jaya 33, Section 13

Get Active

  • SOHO KL, Mont Kiara


  • Merchant Square, Tropicana

Obviously, there are lots of other gyms either more exclusive, or lesser than the examples I have given, so feel free to explore. If you’re heart is set to achieve that goal you have in mind, any gym would do – the only difference will be how quickly you achieve them, how effective, and most importantly, how much fun you will have. There is however another option – home gym

Fitness Concept is a store that sells equipments and stuffs that you can find at these professional gyms. This chain could be found in most major malls. For starters, get a set of those 10 kg dumbbell set and a few advice on how is best to utilize them. One item that I am particularly interested in is a set of large, high-tensile rubber band that is revolutionizing the term ‘portable gym’. Hit the store and you’ll know what I mean.

Tips for starters

  • Find a suitable timetable for you to work out your routine. An effective routine must include hitting the gym at least 3 times a week.

  • Look for a gym that is preferably close to your home and one that suits your budget. Note: professional help do come with a price.
  • Stick to a fitness/weight-loss/body-sculpting programs that suits you. The pros and regular gym goers might offer an advice or two, but do your own research. A magazine like Men’s Health is a lot of help.
  • Disclipline! Nuff said..

Anyway, I love going to the gym as I could work out that stress garnered at work, and get much healthier, slimmer, and more muscular in the process. Exercising also releases the hormone endorphin - the same hormone released during sex - which makes us feel good. Yeah, I am aware that chocolates also trigger the release of endorphin, but I prefer to watch my weight, thank you.

So, if the heaviest thing that you can lift currently is that Big Mac, the only exercise you get is that walk (and occasional run) to classes, and having your hand as your only lover, you need a wake up call, buddy!

Hit the gym. Pump that iron.

You’ll feel like a million bucks in no time.
