No fitness journey is alike, and the same can be said for Imelda Yong, the group marketing director of boutique consulting group, Lab Malaysia. In her pursuit for aesthetic goals, Imelda turned to high intensity workouts, which backfired in chronic injuries only made worse with a sedentary lifestyle. Physio was but a temporary relief – until she bumped into Dr Elaine Hong, who recommended the MovNat workout.
The duo self-trained in the mobility-based regime dubbed MovNat, focusing on form, technique and muscle groups, Today, they are the only certified MovNat trainers in Malaysia, and for Imelda, injury-free days lie ahead. Curiosity brought us to their MovNat-inspired Natural Movement training ground at District 13, where the Imelda and Dr Elaine welcomed us to a dynamic session and explained the workout's philosophy.
