Desmond Lee – “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there”

Desmond never thought a simple idea will lead to bigger things in his life.


When we first saw Desmond, it didn’t cross our mind that he used to represent Singapore as National cyclist during his poly days.

“All these happened by accident. My senior scouted me to join him in a tertiary bodybuilding competition, to represent poly back in 2006. There was when I discovered my passion in bodybuilding.”

For the past nine years, he has been in and out of the game, giving his all in pursuing his undying love for bodybuilding. He is currently running his own gym, Hercules Fitness alongside with his partner and truthfully, he is still working to improve the overall experiences being at the gym and training together.

Desmond personally feels that being in the fitness industry pushes him to look his best all year round as to motivate his clients. His client’s success is considered as one of the contributing factor of the increase of his personal growth as well.


The current champion of Musclemania Asia 2017 is aiming to attain his Pro card for the competition and eventually be able to compete on the world stage with fellow Pro card bodybuilders in Las Vegas. He is currently training hard on his weaker muscles as well as keeping his off season lean so that it’s easier for him to prep for his upcoming competitions in 2018.

His meals consist on proteins mainly eggs, fish, chicken breasts and rice. He tries to eat every two hours to keep his metabolism high with minimal carbs and high. Hi daily routine starts with 30 minutes cardio (climbing stairs) and a hearty breakfast afterwards to kick start the day. Since he coaches and trains with some of his clients, his partner usually preps their healthy meals in the gym.

The handsome heartthrob told us his favourite workout is definitely the shoulder as it is one muscle group that gives us an overall wider look. “It is a challenge to make sure all 3 parts of the shoulders are targeted to give the complete package on and off stage.”

As for his other plans, Desmond is in the midst of expanding his gym and he looks forward to groom more individuals as trainers as well as competitors.
