I have just digged out my research paper for my master that is still there in my laptop. When I look at it again, it is interesting to see how well I have worked it through, even though it was not awarded as merit nor excellence this time unlike my research for my degree when I was awarded as a First Class.

Anyway, my topic was “A Quantitative study – affective based segmentation towards chocolate eaters in Singapore” and there are things about chocolate that you may want to know:

  1. chocolate has been traded actively worldwide and its consumption has been estimated as much as 2.8 million tons per year.
  2. Thais and Japanese prefer to have white or milk chocolate whereas Singapore and Hong Kong consumers prefer to consume dark chocolate (Euromonitor, 2006).
  3. This has brought the global sales to US$ 58 billion in the year 2003, with Europe dominated half of the sales, followed by the American as much as one third and Asia for approximately one tenth (Forbes, 2005).
  4. Chocolate would lessen pain and a good source of magnesium.
  5. It is a prescribed stress-reliever
  6. Chocolate could make someone ‘flies’ if the person consumes 1/3 of his/her bodyweight to get the effect

Based on my research, it has been revealed that there were 6 sub-segments exist within a chocolate eaters market in Singapore; chocolate devoted, self-indulgence, chocolate adventurer, health-conscious, the loyals and the chocolate lovers. It will be interesting to see the same study applies in Indonesia or Jakarta hehehe. Anybody?

The Special Contender BodyCombat classes have been held in all FitnessFirst clubs in Jakarta except in FitnessFirst Cibubur Junction where BodyCombat is not that popular down there. Behind the scenes:

  1. Someone was taking leave from the office to join the special Contender BodyCombat class in FitnessFirst
  2. The Contender t-shirts are the limited edition and can only be worn in FitnessFirst clubs
  3. Despite the pain that they felt after the class, most members wanted to have more challenge in the future, be it another contender class or combat marathon
  4. Believe me or not, once you did it you wont be able to sleep at night as this happened to me when I did my first contender class – I was fully awake until 2 am
  5. The format of the class has been designed and altered to the members’ condition. If stations are not enough then we slot in another conditioning track by the end

See you in the next Contender BodyCombat class!!

FitnessFirst Asia is proud to sponsor the Contender that will be aired in AXN every Wednesday starting 16th January 2008. This has been reflected in the BodyCombat class that I teach everyday presently in terms of format as well as the physical training. FitnessFirst Taman Anggrek is the first FitnessFirst that kicked off the Contender class last Sunday. The class was filled up with 70 members from all FitnessFirst clubs in Jakarta. If you want to know what is the Contender in class, join us in your nearest FitnessFirst.  

Trust me, the pain will stay there for at least 3 days after you do it. Good luck everybody!!
