As we will soon bid 2013 farewell, we look back at what was a very exciting year. There were ups and downs, big and small kettlebell events, relocation and also consistent learning of new skills despite it all but our first priority in this post is to THANK all those who have contributed generously to AlphaFit to make us what we are today. Life is like a garden. You will only grow what you cultivate. Our members have cultivated a sense of belonging to the community, strength in supportive spirit, camaraderie and I can’t thank you enough for attracting more like-minded individuals into the gym. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (in advance to everyone) and enjoy looking back on 2013 with me as you scroll down the post.
And now …. let the pictures do the talking.
March 2013 – Asian Kettlebell Championship 2013
Many thanks to our sponsors, helpers, UWCSEA Tampines for their sports hall and everyone who pitched their efforts in to make this a roaring success! Over 90 participants from 12 countries, stay tune for more in 2014!
April 2013 – Girevoy Sports Workshop with Muk Venkataraman @ AlphaFit
The brave man to organize the very first Asia’s kettlebell competition “Hong Kong Kettlebell Open” in 2011 and the most experienced kettlebell lifter in Asia with the most competition under his belt over 4 years and counting. (Watch how he convinced the girls to practice the 20kg and 24kg Snatch in the video)
May 2013 – AUKL (Asian Union of Kettlebell Lifting) was born in May 2013! The AUKL is an open organisation to help spread Kettlebell Sport through Asia.
Our goal is to educate, train and create the highest level athletes in the region.

August 2013 – Gullnaz Baig raised $4225 for Muhammadiyah Welfare home in the fasting month of Ramadhan so the boys have a little extra pocket money for Eid. She challenged herself to a total of 20mins Snatch without putting the 12kg kettlebell down! Great effort Naz and Jenn who joined to support her all the way through the 20mins mark!
Roy Mewjork from BangkokKettlebells and Krish from Rebelgym Indonesia organized the very first Thailand Kettlebell Competition during the Asia Fitness Convention 2013 in Bangkok.
