Nashata Challenge for JK1M Ampang-Setapak-Wangsa Maju

Eda Fatimawati used to be obese and lost weight through fitness. She is now one of the team leaders at JomKurus 1 Malaysia program for Ampang, Setapak and Wangsa Maju area. Together with her lead partner, Eda and Wan have the right fit to train others, especially on how to loose weight as they faced weight issue and managed to overcome their problems.

During the fifth week session, the team had Women’s Challenge Week, where they had to compete in a Dumbbell Body Shape Workout & Women’s Challenge at Taman Tasik Datuk Keramat. Two winners get to participate in Nashata 5km Fun Run at the Malaysian Women Marathon on the 16th March 2013.


The challenge started with:

  • 30 Jumping Jacks, followed by running around the lake with dumbbells
  • 20 Lunges, followed by running around the lake with dumbbells
  • 20 Squat, followed by running around the lake with dumbbells, and ended with
  • 20 Mini Planks

Winners for the challenge were Jaslinda Jasmani and Ros Iryani Mohamad. We interviewed the two highly determined and witty ladies to find out their motivation to loose weight. Watch the ladies at the challenge!

Since many other ladies were serious about joining Nashata 5km Fun Run, three more ladies were sponsored to participate. It was truly rewarding to discover the power of teamwork and togetherness that can effectively alleviate a woman’s performance and confidence.

Nashata wishes the team improved active lifestyle post JomKurus program.
