Dixon Thum Wai Khong was a nerd, a geek and an anti sports during his teens and was often teased by his schoolmates with various names from a Fei Chai (fat boy in Chinese), Thum-mytrim, Jelly and anything that relates to fat and plump. Dixon's nightmare at school was the physical education (PE) class and worst, if it was the Sports Day. The agony at school had forced Dixon to adopt running during his undergraduate studies and forced him to joined the local gym in his effort to lose the nickname fat boy along with the fat and weight. Unfortunately, the gym was not at all successful despite the hefty monthly commitment.

Dixon first heard of the CHIEF'S ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP (COBC) online and was really tempted to join but could not afford the program at RM299 per month. However, in June 2011 when COBC launched the program "Now everybody can be hot & sexy" ala Airasia Now Everyone can fly, Dixon's dream came true.. Dixon was given the opportunity to try out the world oldest military-inspired, group outdoor personal training program at the COBC.

Prior to trying out the COBC, Dixon had tried all avenues to lost weight and to have a leaner physique with a 6 pack abdoments. Dixon experimented with various dietary program, gym, running, yoga, weight lifting but all attempts were futile without the dream result. At the COBC, Dixon discovered his inner loves for sports in contrast to his childhood nightmare. The enthusiasm in training had motivate Dixon to re-lived his life-time dream of having a 6 pack abs and a leaner physique. When COBC launched the annual 8 Weeks Challenge together with OBC, Australia, Dixon saw and was determined to at least come closer to his dream body. Armed with RM100 entrance fee for the 8 Week Challenge and a commitment of 8 weeks training with COBC, Dixon was ready to rebrand himself.


Do you know what is worst than the tsunami of sweats and the earth quake heartbeat that we all went through during COBC training session? You are so right! Waiting for the 8 Weeks Challenge final result! dub dab dub dab dub dab... Oh god, though I look young and feels young (all the time) and is still actually young (I think) but this waiting for the announcement makes my heart felt so old.. too heavy for my heart.

The 8 Weeks Challenge (8WC) is the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP, Australia annual event which the CHIEF'S ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP Malaysia (COBC) had always participated! In fact, we made it compulsory for all COBC instructors to partake. How else can we better understand our recruits than to experience the journey together! Approximately 80 recruits participated from Malaysia in this year's 8WC which began on 26 September 2011 and recently ended on 18 November 2011.

When everyone gathered for the final measurement and photo-shoot at my house, our jaw dropped!! Shocking and unbelievable!! We almost could not recognized some of them. If you do not believe me, see them for yourself at HERE. The voting for the location Champions and Runners-up began on Monday, 21 November 2011 and ended on Wednesday, 23 November 2011.
