ABOUT

Foo Chuan Yu (better known in the jungle as CY) was a Singapore National Water Polo player. He played for the national water polo team since he was 15.  He has represented the state in numerous international competitions, including the ASIAN GAMES in 2010.

CY continued to serve his nation in the military for 5 years, during which he ruptured 3 ankle ligaments. For rehabilitation, he decided to try out CrossFit and that's where his relationship with CrossFit started. The rest they say… is history.

CY loves what CrossFit stands for, pushing oneself to the best everyday. CY fell in love with the community at CrossFit Bukit Timah. Through CrossFit, he also found Olympic Weightlifting where he has high hopes.

Taking his passion for CrossFit and weightlifting further, CY left the military and join CrossFit Bukit Timah as Community Manager and most recently, as Head Coach. His rambunctious energy is infectious - his secret to winning hearts within the tribe… and beyond!

ABOUT

Born and bred in Singapore, sports and competition have been a part of Jed’s life since the age of 6. Jed took to the water from a young age and represented his schools, club and country in competitive swimming. The highlight of his swimming career was a gold medal at the 2003 Southeast Asian Games. Jed played water polo while he served in the Singapore Armed Forces, and picked up rugby when studying at the Singapore Management University. He represented his school at the Indian Rim Asian University Games (IRAUG) for a 7s tournament in Perth, Australia against top teams from rugby powerhouses like Australia. He continued playing rugby at club level locally.

CrossFit and Jed eventually crossed paths in 2015 as he was looking for a strength and conditioning programme to supplement his rugby training. He knew from his first introductions to CrossFit that CrossFit is legit! He has taken part in various CrossFit competitions locally and around the region. Falling in love with CrossFit, he retired from competitive rugby and has never looked back! Fitness and sports has always been and will always be in his blood.

His mantra in life is: “Be Kind, Stay Humble, Work Hard”
