We knew these celebs were fit; we didn't know they were THAT fit

Here in Singapore, there are plenty of celebs whose body of work includes a set of perfect, chiselled abs: Zheng Ge Ping, Desmond Tan, and Jaime Teo, to name a few. But every now and then, someone surprises us. Just a few weeks ago, sensitive songbird, Nathan Hartono, revealed via a shirtless pic over Instagram that he’s not such a softy after all.

Keep reading to see who often flies under the radar for being #abgoals.

UPDATE: Pierre Png

We knew that the Crazy Rich Asians trailer, which dropped yesterday, would feature luscious local backdrops and oodles of fine clothing. What we DIDN'T know is that it would include a rare shot of Pierre's six-pack.

The tall, waif-like actress isn’t just skin and bones. While filming in chilly China, she posted this throwback picture from a holiday in Langkawi. In another Instagram post, Bing Yu wrote, “Alright, 5 more KGs to go...” but she means losing 5 kilograms, we’d advise against it – with a bit of exercise, those gains could be all muscle!

In addition to being an entertainer, Jade is also quite the athlete, having competed in sports such as netball, wakeboarding, high jump, and long distance running since her youth. In this Instagram post from January, she shared about her goal to grow in functional training in 2018 so that she can continue playing sports at a competitive level. Based on the state of those abs, we’re guessing she’s been pretty disciplined.

Okay, okay, it’s not exactly news that Maxi’s buff now, but his sculpted physique continues to impress, surprise, and inspire us, given his role as the nerdy Aloysius Jin in the Ah Boys to Men franchise.

“Once [in] awhile they peep to greet me in the morning,” May wrote on Instagram, hashtagging #myabs and #canyoustayvisible. Given her strict regime, which includes cardio four to five times a week, and strength training using body weights, that should be no problem.

Narelle’s not only got the vocal chops, but she’s probably a force to be reckoned with at the gym, given the contours of her midsection.

“Rarely ever post things like this but i’ve [sic] been putting in the work and i’m proud of it so lemme have my moment of social media vanity,” Nathan wrote on Instagram, posing handsomely at The Garage, his circuit training facility of choice. By all means, Nathan, post more.

We’re so accustomed to seeing Jiafa’s feed cluttered with the likes of Nasi Lemak and deep fried chicken wings, that we were positively shook upon discovering that he’s still as muscular as ever. Teach us your gym routine, Jiafa!

We’re not sure which we’re more envious of: Yasminne’s extensive collection of bikinis, or her Bond Girl-worthy beach bod. We’re dying to know how she maintains her figure in spite of her busy schedule of deejaying, hosting, and travelling.
