Most Malaysians are unaware of fatal diseases caused by poor dietary habits and lack of physical activity in their daily lives.

Workout and exercise is the last thing comes to mind for most Malaysians when it comes to adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Many start a fitness regime only after they are diagnosed with some health problems which are usually too late. Individuals then attempt going for a walk in their neighbourhood, or jog at a nearby park, or maybe even sign up for a gym membership – desperate to recover from their fatal illness. Sadly, many are no longer able to perform even simple exercise routines due to their deteriorated health condition.

Today, social pressure and narcissistic influences in young people as early in their teens who want to look physically appealing especially on social media are also easily swayed by unrealistic and psuedo-health fads spread throughout the internet. These youngsters are willing to do anything for such false shortcuts while being completely clueless of the damaging effects and deadly consequences that comes along with it.
