Name: Yayoi Sugawara
How do you keep fit: I am naturally a very active person; however I RUN for about 2 hours three times a week and also do STRENGTH TRAINING in the gym three times a week. When I am not working out, I try as much as possible to stay active.
How long have you been working out: for as long as I can remember; actually at age 3years, I had started taking part actively in sports and engaging in some physical activities.
What keeps you motivated: being fit
I notice Japanese people are very flexible and fit; what’s the secret: I believe it is because parents/care givers encourage their kids very early in life to explore, become physically active and engage in sports.
What do you eat to stay in shape: I make sure I drink freshly squeezed juice every morning, take a lot of water and eat lots of vegetables. I also try as much as possible to eat only when hungry and control what goes into my mouth.
Hobbies: shopping, watching movies and dancing.
Advice for weight watchers: stay focused, be determined and you’ll not go wrong.
For those wanting to start: it is never too late to start. Define your goals and you can do it.
Keep well, stay active and please share.
