Local actor Maxi Lim is not yet done with his fitness journey.

Unexpected fitness journey training alongside childhood idols

In a recent interview with Shin Min Daily News, the 36-year-old shared that he has been training with Zheng Geping and Vincent Ng, since February, and hopes to achieve his desired fitness goal before his birthday next year on 12 March.

He also said that he watched Zheng’s shows growing up and never imagined he would be training alongside him and Ng one day.

Lim also revealed that Jeremy Chan, who went through a physical transformation for his role in the drama All That Glitters, is also part of the group and joked that it’s why he has such a good body.

Balancing strength training, diet flexibility, and career transformation

Sharing more on what his fitness journey has been so far, Lim said, “In the past, I was only losing weight without shaping and building muscles. I feel stronger now after working out. I will complete my body transformation next year and gain weight and muscles.”

Currently, though, Lim told Shin Min that he’s not on a diet.

“I don't control my diet at the moment. I will only go on a diet unless there are competitions or filming plans. In addition to gymming, I also do boxing, twice a week,” he said.

Lim started his weight loss journey back in 2016, after he rose to fame for his role on Ah Boys to Men. He was also motivated by the fact that friends called him ‘Ah Pui’ (‘fatty’ in Hokkien).

He told The New Paper back then that he lost 11kg after two and a half months of changing his eating habits and taking up muay thai classes.

“I wanted to lose weight because if I change my outlook, I can change my career and take on other different roles,” he added then.
