Bodybuilder And Fitness Extraodinaire, Grace

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Grace. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

I am from Singapore and I’m currently in my final year in Psychology Studies, Ngee Ann Polytechnic. I am 21 this year.


How did you develop an interest in body building?

I developed an interest in bodybuilding when a friend introduced me to basic resistance training about 2.5 years ago. Seeing small changes and progress made me want to pursue bodybuilding further.


What is your fitness regime like?

To me, having time to train is a luxury. When I am not that busy (e.g when I am having holidays), I train about 5-6 times a week. I train legs once a week, back twice a week, shoulders and abs 2-3 times a week and arms once a week. I also do about 20-30 minutes of moderate to intense cardio after my training sessions about 3-4 times a week. When I am too busy with school or other commitments, I might reduce my training frequency to about 4 times a week instead and combining different muscle groups into one session.


Do you have any favorite workout routines?

I do enjoy doing supersets because it can save time and drop-sets to ensure I fatigue my muscles completely. I like doing the stair-master because it is rather challenging in a fun way.

Is it possible to lose weight fast within a period of 3 months?

It is possible to do it the right way in three months but I do not advocate anything too extreme or crash dieting because the harder you diet, the worst the rebound. I will suggest staying in shape/staying lean as a lifestyle and not giving yourself a specific deadline of e.g 12-16 weeks to achieve your goals. I had a bad experience with hardcore dieting for 12 weeks and even though I got pretty lean, my metabolism was in a bad place and I was suffering from slight metabolic damage. It took me more than 12 weeks to recover my metabolism and to successfully reverse diet to the point where my metabolism was running normally again. Hence, the best “diet” to be on is a diet that can sustain you for life and not something that sets you up for failure, rebound and body fat overshooting. (Check out more from @biolayne on IG or Layne Norton on YouTube).


Can you afford to indulge in guilty pleasures or do you follow a very strict diet?

Yes, most definitely. Personally, after about 2 years on my “fitness journey”, I have learned that our body does not know what “clean” food is and what “dirty” food is. It’s really just a myth and Bro-science. I don’t believe in following a very strict diet anymore because it will only set myself up for failure as it is unrealistic and unsustainable. As long as I am able to incorporate treats into my diet and keeping it within my macronutrient allowance for the day, there will be no “damage” done and having treats does not mean “letting yourself go”, it simply means that I am not obsessive and much more flexible now. I can “diet” happily and still reach my goals without leading an extreme and rigid lifestyle. The key to a successful fitness lifestyle is happiness, sustainability and balance, and not forcing yourself to stick to a diet and workout regime you hate and then calling yourself “fitspo”.

How do you motivate yourself?

I find that as time passes, it’s no longer a matter of motivating myself but doing it because I love the lifestyle. When I am feeling very tired and unmotivated, I just tell myself that I will feel much better after the workout.


If you had the chance to learn anything, what will it be?

If I had the chance to learn something new, it will be dance or video editing.

It’s a great pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

I think “sexy” is really just being confident and comfortable in your own skin and also believing that what you do is making your life better.
