A twenty-five-year old systems administrator from Switzerland, Kevin Wyss is spending a total of six months at Tiger. Working in an office, he realized that his weight had slowly started to rise and he has come to Tiger to take care of business. He’s been at Tiger one month so far and he can be found every afternoon in the Beginner’s Muay Thai area working up a sweat. He says that he hasn’t encountered an exercise at Tiger that he didn’t enjoy and that his favorite workout is Muay Thai.

How did you first hear about Tiger?

I read in the newspaper about someone who had been at Tiger and had lost 100KGs in one and a half years. I wanted to try it too. Not to lose 100 KG, but lose some weight.

I want to lose 30KGs in the six months that I’m here. I’ve been here one month so far.

How do you feel about that goal now that you’ve started training?

I feel good. I think I can reach it.

What classes have you been taking?

Right now, I’m doing just the afternoon Muay Thai class. I want to start the body fit in the morning soon.

Are you following any specific diet or food plan?

Yes. I’ve been avoiding carbohydrates and focusing on protein. Things like meat and omelets.

Has anything surprised you about Tiger?

Tiger 2

You meet good people from all over the world. They are very friendly.

Do you have any advice for prospective guests?

In the beginning, it’s very hard. After only five minutes of exercise and you are exhausted. But once you reach week two or three, you feel much better. Like you have more power.

Have any parting thoughts?

I think Muay Thai is the best balance between endurance and power, that’s why I do the Muay Thai classes.
