We all know Che Puan Sarimah Ibrahim as that multitalented celebrity, whose accolades range from bubbly TV and radio personality, singer, Instagram darling, and as a real-life princess, by marriage to Tunku Jamie Nadzimuddin. We don’t need to mention that this Irish-Malay beauty has not aged a day since she started in showbiz. On the contrary, she couldn’t look any better, her lean and graceful figure overflowing with energy as she welcomed us into Inhale/Exhale Pilates Studio, the cosy venue where she trains regularly with instructor Elaine Tan.
Long before fitness became trendy, Che Puan Sarimah was already dabbling in various exercises, in particular Pilates since 2009. The karate devotee even trained to be a Pilates instructor. “I take a holistic approach in everything I do – I like doing things that are dynamic and relaxing, so I can focus,” She shared, before kicking into Pilates mode for our Fitness Kickstart video shoot.
Che Puan Sarimah is naturally inclined to workout 5-6 times weekly, and since Pilates reformer exercises stabilises the vigours of boxing and gym, it has become a mainstay to her programme. As a core-centric workout, Pilates works on strengthening the form and posture – perfect for Sarimah’s line of work.
