As our regular wellness contributor, it's no secret that Dr Andrea Lim is our go-to authority and paragon of health. You’ll first notice the glow emanating from her toned physique, followed by a cool-as-cucumber demeanour. First impressions aside, her medical approach and passion for fitness led her to set up the Peak Fitness, which she manages concurrently with her family business, KL Sogo.
On top of 2 businesses, Dr Andrea goes home to another job: As mother to her firstborn, Isabelle Zara. Despite the responsibilities, Dr Andrea makes it a point to carve time for regular workouts and exercises, which she's honed since discovering dancing at the age of 4. With regards to myths about working out during pregnancy, Dr Andrea admitted that hers hasn't changed much from her pre-pregnancy routine.
"You can do whatever your body is accustomed to doing before pregnancy. But if it becomes too physically uncomfortable, listen to your body" Dr Andrea assured us. "For myself, I continued indoor cycling, weight-lifting and kickboxing."
