TRISWIM Product Tried, Tested and Reviewed

Before I start with my product review I need to know if this is a suitable post for you.

  1. Do you loves the sun sea and sand?
  2. Do you Swim Bike and Run?
  3. Do you love getting pampered with good products?
  4. Do you think you will go out on a date with Isaac?

If you answer YES to all four, keep on reading as this post will benefit you most (ok I don’t think no 4 will benefit you as an athlete, will but thanks for giving me a chance)

Singapore tropical climate has always been hot and humid weather mixed with a little haze for some variety, athletes and people participating in triathlon clearly needs a good product that will help keep their body smelling good after training and I have the product for them. This is not a paid post so what if I tell you that one company have specifically created this product with us Athletes in mind.

Introducing SBR Triswim products and POUT have brought this excellent product into Singapore, I have read reviews and always contemplated to import this products in wondering if they work or not but with so many review online I should have done it sooner but lucky me I received an email saying that POUT is giving me a set to try it out, check out my unboxing video.

Here are my verdict and review on the Triswim products in the following order that I use.


I will wash my hair first after all my swims as not to leave chlorine or any salt water on my hair for too long, for fear that it will dry out my hair and having adverse effect it it’s so (Think balding).

I recently in Maldives and I was spending hours in the water while diving and swimming, so the first thing I got back was to splash this on my hair and I would leave it on my hair before I wash it off and then use the body wash. With such description on their website, I am totally sold.

  • TRISWIM Swimmers’ Shampoo is specifically formulated to eliminate Chlorine, Bromine, salt water and chemical odor by sequestering, attacking and rinsing the chemicals out of the hair and down the drain.
  • Moisturizes with Aloe Vera, Vitamin A & Pro Vitamin B5.
  • TRISWIM Swimmers’ Shampoo effectively removes the straw-like feeling and greenish tint in hair.
  • Formulated for swimmers or active individuals who are exposed to harsh drying elements such as Chlorine, Bromine, Salt and Sun

Body Wash

This is by far my favorite and If they sell them in 1 liter tub I will definitely buy it, cause the smell it left my skin feels so fresh, it does work extra well than any other regular product but the smell of this product got me feeling like I can take on the world.

The salt and sand clearly had no chance and even the smell of salt water or any muck that was in the water definitely washed off with this leaving you only smelling like fresh Japanese Yuzu scent, Yuzu is soft of like a lemon.


After washing off the body wash, I would smear my head with loads of conditioner, but with this product you do not need to really squeeze a ton as this consistency is thicker than the regular one you will have. This is highly moisturizing after your wash but you will feel this effect after a few wash, I read that it also improve dry and damage hair, can’t confirm as I have short and none damage hair (Blame it on vanity)


I usually do not moisture my skin unless it’s really expose dry air or prolonged chlorine exposure, but since this came in the package I tried it out and I have to say it did help me sooth my dry itchy, sunburned skin  while I was in Maldives. I felt the consistency of this product rather thick and need a good rubbing, It felt like thick goo (think Gu Gel) at first but it easily spreads over the skin without having to rub it. Again I have to say the scent is not over powering and it will just leave you feeling relax after your day.

Isaac’s 2cents Worth

With products smelling as fresh as TriSwim why would anyone not be buying and using this wonderful product

Well, lets see, Triswim’s Bodywash was my favorite, washing off all the saltwater and chlorine effectively, the Shampoo was great coupled with the conditioner and it will leave your hair feeling soft and smelling great (wait a minute, Isaac has short hair so how come he is able to say that? well not only did I use the product, I asked the girl to test it out as well, She has long hair and she loves it as well)

If you are traveling around the world racing your events, I suggest getting the sachet which POUT carries them for only $1.50 click here

but if you have already tried it and loving it like me, you can stock up on Triswim as they are having a value bundle sale price over at POUT, Do check it out if you are interested. What’s not to like with ingredient and product totally made in the USA and not tested on Animals

Adidas’ Fit Smart wearable now tracks more of your fitness data

Adidas fans rejoice with this new software updates, Your existing MiCoach can breathe new life into it’s existing hardware, and that’s what’s happening today with the Fit Smart. Introduced last year, this wrist-worn wearable has been able to measure burned calories, heart rate, distance covered, pace and steps since day one.

But now Adidas will let you keep track of all those fitness stats using the Train and Run app, which is available for iOS and Android. Previously, Fit Smart and its companion application focused on coaching for workouts, training plans and monitoring your heart rate.

By adding these features, people who own the device can start tracking data to set daily and weekly goals — similar to Nike’s FuelBand SE or Jawbone’s Up3. We’re not sure why it took Adidas over a year to bring such useful functionality to the Fit Smart, but at least its finally here.

PUMA Night Run Singapore Post Race Review

PUMA Night Run Singapore 2015 have concluded and what night it was, the haze stayed for the night and everything was just beautiful, the sky was clear and a crisp of clear breeze just keeps blowing gently on the runners at the Marina Barrage venue, not here to talk about the weather but that’s about it anyway

Most of you want to know how did PUMA did for the 2nd year running the event in Singapore as PUMA Night run events are BIG in TAIWAN and KOREA, especially Taiwan (think loads of … wait .. sea of people. Pic below was from PUMA Taiwan 2014)

PUMA Night Run Taipei 2014: Celebrating Taiwan's Modern Night Cats

The Course

The interesting course brought us around the scenic view of Marina Bay which highlights beautiful CBD skyline along the course, the course pic below was pretty good with little or no bottleneck except for the one after 6km but that is to be expected because of construction works as well as its a Park Connector. Other than that you can literally blast your way through the course.

PUMA Night Run Singapore 2015Just so you know I had to run a steady pace and not blow my main even which is happening next week in Osaka, so all I could do is just hold my pace at 6min through out and be discipline about it. My polar timing came in at 1hour exactly and it recorded an average pace of 6min/km (how’s that for discipline) it’s a training just when I needed it, my only concern is how my average HR stayed at 171 which is not my usual of 160bpm through out 20km courses (Blame it on the haze)


There was three water point serving out just water and not energy drink, which is sufficient for a 10k event. The volunteers at all the water point must have been trained at Ironman event because they were passing the drinks while running with the runners.

I have to say this is the first time I ever seen a Pin for Medal, Think “Medal Of Honor” really cute and innovative guys.


The Atmosphere

Once runners arrive on the start point, you will be greeted with all the booth lighted up just like would at some out door concert event, maybe even better cause of the purple and green laser light dancing all around,

the atmosphere was electric and you can bet people are queuing up at photobooth, HIC drink booth and even the delicious DoSiRak. There was DJ and celebrity all around the PUMA event for your to gawk, as in Taiwan there are many pretty girls and hot hunks to eye candy similiar to Korea (let me cover it live next year for both city and I will let you know)

The Winners

Defending his title, Thomas Kiprotich topped the Men’s Open category with an impressive time of 33 minutes 57 seconds. Kennedy Kyule Matolo came in just seconds behind with a respectable 34 minutes and 12 seconds followed by Suresh Tilija in third place, with a time of 36 minutes 30 seconds). Finishing above the rest in the Women’s Open Catergory was Cheryl Chan, who crossed the finishing line with a time of 44 minutes, with Anna Helowicz Hebrich coming in second at 44 minutes and 49 seconds and Marsh Rebek Ah Karen Patrica in third position with a time of 46 minutes 16 seconds.

Overall Experience

Totally loving it, would not miss events like this because it’s one of those events where you don’t need to wake up early in the AM, the place was electrifying filled with runners pumped up for the event, Imagine the runners even did a pre-warm up sponsored by True Fitness. Baggage handling had no problems and you could just drop and pick it up without a hitch. Bet my last dollar you will see me running for 2016. In the meanwhile train smart and run hard.

Chicago Marathon Statistical Breakdown for Run Nerds

I have to say I love stats but not math type of stats but stats from running events or Triathlon, yeah call me a crazy but hey I love to see where I stand among the world runners but this stat is by Raymond Britt on and I have to say he did sure pump out some awesome stats.

If you wanna dig in and see how was the Chicago Marathon 2015 participants stat check it out. I have laid it all out for easy reference. I am always impressed by the average finishing time and Chicago Marathon runners prove to be one of the fastest I have seen.

One day I hope I am able to run at the Chicago, NY and Boston event. For now its just a dream as it’s gonna take a chunk of my leave just to be there maybe one day when I have quit my job.
