Power of Fitness: Vincent Lam (Transcript)

Here is the full transcript of Vincent Lam’s talk titled “Power of Fitness” at TEDxRanneySchool 2018 conference.

Listen to the audio version here:


So good afternoon, everyone. So I want to start today off with a question. By a show of hands, who here exercises for at least 30 minutes a day, five times a week? That’s pretty impressive.

Awesome. So according to the American Heart Association, that is actually the recommended amount of exercise per week. So nearly 80% of adult Americans don’t meet this recommendation, which can potentially set themselves up for years of health problems later down the road. So as a fitness professional, one of the most common things I hear is, “I don’t have time.”

So let me tell you guys something about time. Every single one of you has 168 hours in a week, and I’m only asking for two and a half hours out of your week. And for what? To live a better life, a healthier life, or even a longer life.

These are all benefits that come with exercise. Fitness is a lifestyle. This is not a quick fix. This is something you have to incorporate into your daily regimen, just like brushing your teeth or taking a shower.

Personal Background

My name is Vincent Lam, and I started exercising as a hobby. I went on to school and majored in it in college, and now I’m doing it as a career. This is how the power of fitness changed my life.

So I have five main points I want to share with you guys today. We all know that exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but what you may not know is just how important it is. So these benefits may include reducing serious health problems, such as chronic diseases.

It may boost your brain functions, so in a sense, it can make you smarter. It can improve your mental and as well as emotional health, and make you more disciplined as a person, whether you’re in school or even at work. And lastly, it will make you more confident inside and out.
