This lady right here is a superstar. Wan Rydyaton completely destroys the stereotype of bigger girls. Involving short shorts, insanely high heels and a bared midriff, Wan tried pole dancing a few years ago and immediately found her sanctuary. Working as an executive assistant and being a mom to a lovely girl did not hinder Wan from finding time to tune up her artistry by attending classes and filming herself during rehearsals. Her fearlessness to do what she loves is truly refreshing!

Being on the heavier end of the scale did not pan out well for this lad. Finding decent clothes that fit was not the only struggle he faced but being ostracized by his schoolmates due to what he looks like left him emotionally worn out. Petrified of the health risks he might be afflicted to, Gerald took his first step to his 360° transformations. His fortitude towards the arduous journey served him well, and he is now spurring on the vegan lifestyle.




Along the rad street of Telok Ayer lies The Yoga Mandala, where the head of the tribe spends most of her time imparting knowledge to many aspiring yoga teachers.

Jessica’s outreach in Hair For Hope has sparked almost $9000 in donations.

A post shared by Azimah Azmi (@muskelkat) on


Growing up with a father who is an OG in the gym, it is only natural that fitness runs in the Azmi family. With a myriad of activities, Azimah found alleviation through bodybuilding and powerlifting when the going got tough. The Under Armor SG’s ambassador took advantage of her persistent willpower and landed herself on several notable contests such as WBPF Miss Singapore 2015. Did we mention that Azimah is also an ardent roller derby fan? Brownie points to you, warrior.




Growing up where the majority of the population is petite, Sha Halim toiled with the vast difference. Seeking solace in yoga since 2012, she provoked every preconceived notion of what a yoga body should be like. Touching her toes seemed absurd but years on, this rebel’s feed exhibits determination and charm. When asked the significance of her handle, she said it derived from the Sanskrit word Chaturanga: A yoga push-up. Having trouble achieving it then, the creation of Shaturanga prompted Sha to live up to her name. Sha’s quirky corridor yoga practice is an added sureness of her refusal to be ordinary.
