Skechers Weight Lost Challenge Winner: Ching Chieng Lee

In November last year, we had a competition in which only the fittest would survive.. and we found the fittest! Congratulations to Chieng Ching Lee upon conquering his battle with the bulge. We caught up with him to see how he was doing, and to see if his hard-earned Skechers shoes are all they’re hyped up to be (they are).

Hi Ching Lee! Congratulations on your win!
Thank you JUICE magazine for providing me with the chance to have interview, this has been an amazing year with non-stop surprises for me. Thanks JUICE for everything!!

How did your Skechers shoes help you to lose weight?
My Skechers shoes have been a powerful weapon that helps me battle with my unhealthy BMI index. The shoes give me a very tender soft and comfortable sensation,which greatly lightens my daily exercise stresses! Not to mention the fact that they are so stylish! The comfort my Skechers shoes provide have been great motivation and encouragement for me endure the formerly boring, tiring exercises I do. With Skechers, every exercise if fun, joyful and entertaining, and I can work out for any amount of time I want.

Has exercising with your Skechers shoes improved your health?
Definitely! My Skechers shoes have become a must have, and a reliable comrade in my battle towards a healthy body.

Do you have a favorite type of exercise? What is it and why?
I would have to say that jogging with my Skechers shoes is my favorite exercise. Jogging helps me burn my excessive fat far more efficiently than other exercises, and I get to enjoy the great scenery of Mother Nature while breathing cleaner air in the park. However, the main reason I love jogging so much is because Skechers shoes are so comfortable that I don’t get tired as quickly as I normally would.

How much weight do you plan to lose in the next 6 months?
I plan to lost as much as I can, until I obtain a healthy BMI. By that time, the world will have one less fat guy who will have tranformed into a handsome, slim, healthy and stylish guy thanks to Skechers!

How many times a week do you hit the gym?
Normally I go to the gym about 3 days a week, depending on my working scehdule, but I try to go as often as possible. My irresistable Skechers shoes has made me want to hit the gym more!

In addition to going to the gym, are you on a diet plan?
Yes, I do. I eat a healthy diet based on the food pyramid hierarchy and recommendations from WHO, to ensure that all my hard work at the gym with my Skechers shoes doesn’t go to waste! An unhealthy diet with oily food would incur a feeling of guilt that I really want to avoid.

Do you think you’ll be the coolest guy in the gym in your new Skechers shoes?
Definitely. When I first went to the gym, my trainer greeted me with, “Wow.. Skechers!”. I didn’t expect that kind of reaction at all, and it really sparked my self confidence after I heard it.

What kind of music gets you pumped up for the gym? Name a few of your favorite songs that get you going!
The popular songs like Rihanna ‘We Found Love’, Pitbull feat Ne-Yo ‘Give Me Everything’, Jennifer Lopez ‘On The Floor’ and LMFAO ‘Sexy And I Know It’ really get my blood pumping and my feet moving!

What was your lifestyle like before you decided to enter this competition and what made you decide to try out for the competition?
Before this, I was 100% sure that I wasn’t about to participate in any such competition, if it wasn’t for the change that my Skechers shoes have brought into my life. Life before Skechers was boring, with military-style workouts and exercises. I was just exercising for the sake of exercising. When I got my first pair of Skechers shoes, exercising became more enjoyable and relaxing instead of stressful. Thus, I was motivated to take part in the competition so that my great experience with Skechers can be shared with other people.

Do you think you’ll get more attention from the ladies now that you’ve started getting fit?
I’m 99.9% sure that I’ll attract attention from everyone around me no matter who they are or where they come from, but I’m pretty sure that at least 85% of ladies will be stunned by me! Ladies, you can book me now! In 6 months, I’m all yours. 

Are you going to continue working out at True Fitness after your 6-month membership is finished?
Sure, why not? Getting enough exercise is a definite must for better health, and there’s no shortcut to it. True Fitness has always been the place for me to enjoy working out with my Skechers. So, hell yeah, I’ll renew my membership with True Fitness!
