MULTI-sport talents Darren Chai and Rachael Lee, fitness instructors from Fitness Zone, recently did Brunei proud when they emerged as champions in their respective categories at the Battle Royale Crossfit Competition 2014 that was held in Brunei Darussalam.
Darren Chai won the men’s Open category and Racheal Lee took home the winner’s trophy for the women’s Scaled category. Both individuals were also members of the Brunei national team at the recently concluded Borneo City Basketball Cup 2014.
Sharing the true complete fitness regime and training to build fit individuals or building the right muscle to cater to the needs of specific sports, Darren Chai and Rachael Lee are leading the new Functional Training Zone at Fitness Zone Kiulap.
Since he was young, Darren always had a passion for sports such as tennis, badminton, swimming, golf and kick-boxing. At the age of 16, Darren attained his qualifications in the United Kingdom (UK) to acquire his certification for personal training, functional fitness and tacfit.
Finally, in the United States, Darren Chai took up My Gym Jones qualifications where he experienced training with the team that trained actors from films such as Superman and 3OO.
Spreading his training concept, Darren introduced Hybrid Movement Training which is based on the idea of functional fitness whereby an individual will be trained with a goal in mind and condition his body to work at optimal agility, endurance and strength in every situation.
Rachael Lee who is also the Fitness Manager, Personal Trainer and Group Instructor of Fitness Zone, highlighted the importance of safety in the Functional Training.
“Fitness Zone will abide to the strict safety guideline in training,” she added.
The new Functional Training Zone has double rubber layers so that people can drop their weights if it’s too heavy to avoid injuries.
