PERSONAL TRAINER


DAVID OOI
Having been through the rehabilitation process many times, my strength as a trainer is that I am able to empathise with my clients who are going through it now. Getting someone back to being able to live their life normally, being able to get back to doing something they love and making someone stronger is what I love the most about working with my clients.

ABOUT

I am an active martial artist with competitive records in both Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I was working in a very sedentary job with long hours and saw the effect this had on my health. This led to me deciding that I wanted to pursue my lifelong interest in health and fitness by becoming a Physiotherapist. My current fitness goals are to represent Singapore at the upcoming South East Asian Games, as well as to get better at and continue to enjoy training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. 

Having been through the rehabilitation process many times, my strength as a trainer is that I am able to empathise with my clients who are going through it now. Getting someone back to being able to live their life normally, being able to get back to doing something they love and making someone stronger is what I love the most about working with my clients.

My training specialization lies in injury rehabilitation (I am also a practicing Physiotherapist with UFIT Clinic), grip training (it is important), and strength and conditioning for combat athletes – specifically grapplers.
