 What is your name and age?
  Thao Lai 44 

What inspired you to get fit?

After having my first baby 17 years ago, I was not happy with how my body looked because I had gained about 35 pounds during my pregnancy. I was determined to get back to my pre baby weight so I started going to the gym. I began with classes and moved on to weight training 3 years ago with a trainer. Now I compete in bikini competitions and this is my inspiration to continue my fitness regime.

What keeps you motivated to live the healthy life?

After making exercise and diet a priority, my self esteem is better and I am at a place where I am happy with my body. This has motivated me to continue the healthy lifestyle. The fitness competitions have also made me even more determined to do better. As a result, it has helped me watch my diet and spread the importance of exercise and diet.
 


How do you balance life, work, training and family?

My kids and family life are my first priority but I always make sure my workouts are a part of my daily routine. 

What is your favorite body part to exercise?

My favorite body part are my arms. I can see the results and get many questions on how I get them so toned. I also like the compliments I get too.

If you had to pick three key exercises - what would they be and why?

  • Dead lifts to help sculpt my lower back and strengthen it.
  • Squats to help firm and grow my gluteus.
  • Weighted Hip thrusts to grow my gluteus.


As you can see, my goal is to grow my glutes!  :)

AFFITNITY FABRIC

We use Supplex® Lycra for most of our garments.

 

What is Supplex® Lycra? Consumers everywhere like the look and feel of cotton garments. However, they tend to crease, shrink and colors fade. Supplex® Lycra combines the traditional appeal of cotton with the benefits of modern fiber technology.

It is as strong as it is soft.Besides giving comfort while exercising, it facilitates the skin’s natural breathing process and will not wrinkle, shrink or fade.

 

What is so wonderful about the Supplex® fabric is its fusion of softness and stretch. You will be amazed at the stretch, excellent support and soft, natural feel that is designed to be comfortable while wicking moisture away from the body. It is for all shapes and sizes and truly compliments the body with its hugging fit.

You will be amazed at the stretch; excellent support and soft, natural feel that Supplex Lycra offers.
