The Rise of the Pseudo Pro Athletes

They train like pros but actually have full time jobs. They are not amateurs either  because they invest time, energy and money into their favourite sports.

Personal Trainer Karen Siah and Ironman triathlete Rupert Chen share their views on the rise of the pseudo pro athletes.
