Ng Hong Wei
Hong Wei has been training since he was 14, starting out mainly with calisthenics before falling in love with the weights after a few years. Additionally, he was also actively involved in Muay Thai. He enjoyed the process of seeing his strength improve on his lifts and slowly gravitated towards Powerlifting, citing the inner peace from focusing on lifting to be calming.
With 7 years of experience in working with clients to help them move better and get stronger, Hong Wei believes that training is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle when coupled with a healthy and balanced diet.
Believing that being fit and healthy means being responsible to those around him, Hong Wei believes in taking care of himself, which would enable him to take care of others around him. He utilises his knowledge in nutrition and biomechanics of lifting to help his clients improve their body composition and finds passion in helping people get started in their fitness journey.
