Now, if we’re B§y... talk­ing

CLEO (Malaysia) - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

Grow­ing up, I ad­mit, I wasn’t very “body aware”. I mean, how many of us were? I didn’t realise that some diet and life­style habits could af­fect my body – or creep up on me later on. Fast for­ward to now, with all the in­for­ma­tion and in­spi­ra­tion out there, there’s re­ally no ex­cuse to ne­glect our­selves. “Your body is your tem­ple” – so live it.

Then, I started stalk­ing #fit­spo In­sta-feeds, tried juice fasts, detoxes, yoga, med­i­ta­tion, Rolf­ing, acupunc­ture, and more (okay, but I still love my roti canai and Nescafé ais!). With that, I was re­ally pumped to put to­gether CLEO’s Fit­ness Is­sue this July, as my first role as Editor. We at #teamCLEO want you to cel­e­brate the skin you’re in, so we put to­gether game-chang­ing ideas that trans­form the way you think of eat­ing healthy and stay­ing su­per­ac­tive. Whether you’re an ex­pert or novice, fast track your work­outs with the cham­pi­ons in all things fit­ness, with our yearly Fit­ness Awards (page 91). Ever wanted to try park­our? We spoke to some tough girls who smash through sex­ist bar­ri­ers and beat the boys at their own game (page 108). Our na­tional cy­clist and Olympic hope­ful Fate­hah Mustapa also gave us ex­clu­sive in­sight into her life as an ath­lete (page 121), and if you ever wanted to push your own lim­its, join our first-ever CLEO Boot­camp (page 151) and get down and dirty with us!

With all eyes on the Olympics in Rio, it feels so fit­ting that Brazil­ian bomb­shell Gisele Bünd­chen is our cover girl. (Oh, that body!) Read all about her re­fresh­ingly down-toearth take on life (page 18). En­joy! Lina Esa
