The dietary struggles of an athlete in Singapore

Posted by Bold Commerce Collaborator on

Living in Singapore certainly has its advantages, especially if you’re an athlete. From dozens of public and private gyms to very affordable personal trainers, Singapore is a fantastic place for anyone who loves to exercise. As an athlete myself, I’ve taken advantage of these resources more times than I can count, so I can vouch for their effectiveness. However, even with all of these things at your disposal, Singapore, unfortunately, lacks an important aspect of the fitness experience, one that often separates those who aspire to be physically fit, and those that are: A wide range of healthy foods that are readily available. Even though it may seem like such a small part of your life, the food you consume can make all the difference in your journey to physically better yourself in ways you never thought you could. Singapore is an accessible city, but after countless attempts to find an outlet that could supply me with the food I’d need to stay in top shape, I didn’t end up finding a single place that satisfied me.

For a Singaporean to not only eat healthy, but be able to bulk with protein-rich food, your only hope is to spend hundreds of dollars on overpriced and tasteless supplements and healthy meals that are only sold by specialty stores in remote areas (not exactly convenient). Did I mention nearly all of these businesses don’t have any form of delivery service? Being a resident in Serangoon Gardens, I have to make a weekly commute all the way to a smaller store near Jurong to find just a few of the things that I need for my ideal diet. It was nowhere near worth it. I felt like I was wasting my time. 

As a result, I gave up and ended up having to order the things that I needed from other companies that were based overseas to avoid the long, unnecessary driving. Even that came with its own fair share of problems, which was a real pain, but it was either that or nothing. I continued to physically challenge myself, but I always felt like there was something missing that was stopping me from reaching my true potential. 

Needless to say, this exact problem is what we at Actibox strive to fix. Our goal is to provide athletes and active working professionals with a monthly snack box containing their favorite healthy snacks, packed to the brim with protein and nutrients. Our priorities are convenience, health, and affordability. With a plan of your choice (that can be canceled at any time), you’ll receive a box every month that contains snacks that are designed to complement the specific active lifestyle that you desire. From triathletes to boxers, _we can guarantee that we have a plan that will suit your healthy dieting needs with foods from all over the globe. You can even choose to include a snack that would give yourself a bit of a cheat day if that’s what you so desire. And unlike all of those inconvenient supplement shops and health grocers, everything you order is very reasonably priced, so you won’t have to worry about not getting what you paid for. In the world of fitness, we call that a win-win-win. If you’re physically active in Singapore and you want to improve your capacity to become fit, I couldn’t recommend Actibox’s service more highly.
