Eden Ang: Working Towards a Six-Pack Abs With Vinz Low #FitSpo Edition

Eden Ang FitspoWhen the Singapore #Fitspo of the Week featuring Eden Ang was out, friends who knew that I was working with him messaged me asking if “the six-pack abs were real”. I couldn’t help but roll my eyes, because if anyone has been following him on social media would be often updated with his active lifestyle.

It was the first time Eden tried High intensity interval training (HIIT), also known as high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) or sprint interval training (SIT).

Private Training with Vinz Low

Duet Personal Training Eden AngSimilar to my weekly ladies-only Shape N Tone classes I have with Zesty Kickz, this is a half hour cardiovascular interval training, an exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. As Eden has a irregular work schedule and limited free time(plus he’s a guy), he went for private training sessions with Vinz instead. 

Zesty Kickz Ft Eden AngThe training sessions were either held at Recognize Studio in Orchard Central or outdoors at stadiums or gymnasiums. The exercises varies every session. There would be 6 different types of medium or high intensity exercises involving weights or stretch bands where we have to do for 1 minute, followed by 30 seconds of recovery or cardio exercises like high-knee jumps or burpees.


Lunge with Clubbell RollHIIT is suitable for anyone who wants to burn as much fat as possible, minimise fat gain or to increase aerobic and anaerobic endurance significantly.

Aerobic exercise such as cardio, jogging and cycling enhances respiratory and circulatory efficiency by improving oxygen consumption while anaerobic exercises like isometric holds, sprinting, and high-intensity weightlifting, does not require oxygen to generate force. Anaerobic movements use fast-twitch muscles for short bursts of intense activity lasting only brief durations of time.

Eden Ang Push UpsAccording to a study at Laval University in Quebec, “Canada found that HIIT cardio helped trainees lose nine times more fat than those who trained the traditional way (moderate speed for 20-60 minutes).”

This regimen will be able to produce fast results in a short period of time, as it do not allow the body to go into a steady state and has to adjust itself to the irregular speed, hence higher intensity and fat burning.

Eden AngHIIT requires high level of motivation and there will be moments where you wonder why did you get yourself into this “extreme torture”. But no pain no gain, to get a fabulous bod, you’ve got to put in the equivalent amount of effort! If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you!

HIIT High Intensity Interval TrainingI used to prefer Zumba, but after working out with Vinz, I find this training method is more efficient. While dancing to music is fun, I prefer working out intensely for half an hour to achieve similar results. HIIT is considered to be much more effective than normal cardio because the intensity is higher and you are able to increase both your aerobic and anaerobic endurance while burning more fat than ever before.

    HIIT sounds new to me tho staying fit is a good cause. Good luck on the abs!

  2. Lana Slaybell says:

    I want to lose weight but I’m too lazy. I might try this though. Maybe in a thousand years. Haha.

  3. Shub says:

    Eden Ang is my fav actor on SG tv and youtube. So nice that you can work with him. Good to know your exercise routine.

  4. May De Jesus-Palacpac says:

    I’m just about to start on a 30-day HIIT challenge. Thanks for the warning..haha..and thanks for giving me a good point to remember why I’m going to subject myself to this torture. I hope it works well for me.

  5. nicol says:

    he is a very active one! you can tell from his physique. i do HIIT training myself and its great

  6. Amanda Love says:

    I’m one of those who truly envy those with 6 packs but I definitely know the hard work that is put into getting them. I really need to head to the gym and burn a few calories and lose a LOT of pounds. I think you’ve motivated me.

  7. Elizabeth O. says:

    I haven’t heard about him, but he sounds like a really good trainer. Anyone under him would definitely achieve their fitness goals in no time.

  8. Bhushavali N says:

    Haven’t heard of HIIT. Thanks for making me aware of this!!! My work out is only my morning jog that too irregular!!! 😉 😛

  9. franckxethee says:

    Good luck on the Abs. I think its really good to go with HIIt, it’s faster and we reach our fat burning zones earlier.

  10. mumwrites (@vixquips) says:

    At the rate am going and with the dampen enthusiasm I have for working out these days, I would settle for even just a few inches off my midsection. A six-pack seem to be an impossibility now.

  11. firsttimetravel says:

    Wow! They do have great bods! This is something I need, with all the flab growing in various parts of my body. I’m not just sure though if I can take all these rigorous activities. -Claire Algarme

  12. phyliciamarie says:

    HIIT is actually my routine of choice for times when I need to lose weight fast, because as you said, it works! Anyhoo, Eden looks really great, his muscles are soo ripped!

  13. Kathy Lacuna says:

    Looks like a great workout you’ve been having. HIIT seems like a more effective way to lose the most amount of fat. The six pack abs look great, something that Eden has really worked hard to achieve. If HIIT can make one look this great then I think it’s worth trying.

  14. Anne V says:

    Six-pack abs? I can’t even get rid of the belly fat I got after 4 kids haha, maybe this is the workout that I need to finally get the blob of fat around my waist off and get some abs!

  15. Fred Hawson says:

    I just heard about this HIIT on TV this morning, now your blog article. This seems to be a simpler but more intense set of exercises. I think I will study about this more and see if I can do this.

  16. Alina Popescu says:

    His training regimen sounds brutal but it definitely pays off! Love the shots from his training sessions, especially those taken outside. There’s just something so fun about working out outdoors.

Tell me what you think!
