Hi Alicia, I may be there for business (1-2 weeks), thought I might seek some like minded people who might save me from the hotel gym.

I was chatting with a co-worker from Singapore the other day.

He told me how every male was basically in the reserves until they are 40 and that he has to pass a physical test every year to avoid "attention".

It did not seem so bad (I may miss a few here): 2.4K run in 12 minutes, some shuttle running, 30 situps in a minute, age adjusted pullups (like 6 for a 30 year old man). Maybe there was more.

Upshot: there may be a market for prepping guys for this test, so they don't have their army "fix" them. He said normal healthclubs were a rip off.

Anyway, I pointed him to the site here. If only he had a garage...lol

I was in Singapore for about a month and a half with their military guys doing various military things. They also have to do a broad jump and I'm pretty sure they have to run through an obstacle course, but I forget the time. That may have just been the guys we were with, dunno.

The vast majority of people I saw walking around were reed-thin. Set up an affiliate and let's put some meat on those Singaporean bones!

Somewhat off topic, but...

It was a really nice place. I wouldn't want to live there but it was very clean and seemingly really safe. Not any more or less expensive than the USA, but a fun place to visit for a bit.
