Meet the Dwellers - Keeping Fit With The Neighbours
Behind the neat, ordered facades of HDB blocks is a living compendium of lives, people and stories; some more colourful and compelling than others, but all uniquely interesting in their own special way. The weekend workouts by sisters Shereen and Shermaine Ng have grown a community of fitness enthusiasts who are also family and neighbours.
Workouts for strength training in a park? At Clementi Firefly Park, sisters Shereen and Shermaine Ng have made them part of the weekend fitness regime for residents young and old.
The Ng sisters came up with the idea of incorporating strength training into their exercise routine to help build up overall fitness level. They have made it easy and relatable for the uncles and aunties in their neighbourhood, and demystified exercise for non-gym goers.
