Expatriates living in Singapore have the rare opportunity to improve their fitness under the watchful eye of a former England rugby player.
James Forrester has set up his own military fitness firm in the city state with the express purpose of catering to foreign workers, reports the Telegraph.
Having had his own rugby career cut short due to injury in 2008, the former Gloucester and England player has created his own fitness boot camps.
Strength and speed are the two areas that the UFIT training sessions focus on, allowing expats to improve their fitness in what has become the biggest fitness regime in Singapore.
Forrester told the news provider: "Singapore works well for us as it has a large professional expat community for whom this form of outdoor exercise appeals. But KL [Kuala Lumpur], Jakarta and other cities in south-east Asia also have big expat communities we want to tap in to."
With this in mind, expats in other parts of the continent may soon be able to get fit under the former rugby player's regime.
