If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got!

about ME

“I’ve grown up always wanting to see how far I can push myself. My competitive nature has kept me focused on achieving the goals that I’ve set for myself. When I was growing up, I played just about every sport I could. I exceled in Rugby, Athletics and Squash, and competed at the provincial level in my teenage years. After leaving school, I spent years competing in competitive bodybuilding, Mixed Martial Arts, and competitive mountain biking. And over the recent years, I have competed in CrossFit which remains to be as challenging as ever.

With close to a decade in the fitness industry, my strength as a trainer is the ability to relate to my clients really well, and keep them motivated and accountable to the goals they have set out for themselves. In return, the knowledge, wisdom, and stories my clients have shared with me over the years have been the best thing about my coaching career. Focusing on longevity is the most important personal fitness goal for me. To be able to enjoy life to its fullest because I’m healthy, strong, and fit is what motivates me, and drives the work I do with my clients.”

about me

“I’ve always been sporty since I was little. Sports and fitness runs in my family. My big brother whom I look up to exceled at it, and my dad used to be the National Silat Champion when he was younger. I guess that’s where my athleticism and competitiveness came from. Growing up, my dad has always encouraged me to be active in sports, and motivated me to do well in them. I don't think I've had a year in my life of not doing any form of fitness...ever! To me, being fit and healthy is living a lifestyle that positively fuels me inside and out. More importantly, a lifestyle that keeps me mentally, physically, and emotionally happy.

My strength as a trainer lies in helping my clients to be aerobically fit for day-to-day activities (doesn’t matter if you’re a CrossFit athlete, or just want to move better in your everyday life), and to become more confident in their own skin. I love uncovering my clients’ hidden potential. Many of them have surprised me by how much grit they bring to training – I can see it every time they push themselves to the edge of their comfort zones. It makes me realise that everyone is on their own journey. And despite the differences in each of our paths, I can honestly relate with all of them and be inspired by their hard work and determination!”

about

Maybe it is because I am Irish, but I have always been drawn to travelling, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I have worked as a personal trainer in cities in New Zealand, Australia, and the UK. I also spent several months travelling and interning at gyms around the United States, meeting and learning from the best people in the industry. I spent nearly two years with Tennis Ireland helping the national team improve their physical performance.

My personal fitness goals is to achieve the best physique I can while staying fit and most importantly – injury free. Being fit and healthy to me means finding a form of exercise that you enjoy, and staying consistent with it. The exercise and foods that you eat should add to and enrich your life, not the other way around.

My strength as a trainer is in my ability to understand my clients and gain their trust. I love being a part of my clients’ progress, not only the physical changes as they lose weight and build muscles, but I love seeing how people become more confident in themselves and just generally loving life!

about

I have always been an active individual. At the age of 10 I started playing soccer competitively for my elementary school. At 12 I got interested in skateboarding, and at 16 I started learning Muay Thai. These activities were the foundation of my love for fitness and it made me realise the importance of strength and endurance. I was skinny from a young age and got motivated to start training with weights after seeing the progress some friends made. Having made significant progress myself I decided I wanted to help others feel better about how they look and that is when I decided to become a personal trainer.

My personal fitness goals is to get stronger and attain a well built physique in a safe and progressive manner. This means fueling my body with good nutrients to help me sustain my energy levels for a good workout, and developing good eating habits. With the right balance, I believe we can enjoy all types food – that is a healthy mindset to adopt.

“If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.” - Red Adair

My favourite cheat meal: 
I don’t think it’s psychologically healthy to look at certain food as cheating. As long as you manage portions and have a balanced diet you can enjoy all types of food!

My biggest fear:

Haha my dad once told me never to share my fears with anyone. Know them but don’t share them.

Best advice given to me:

Always count my blessings. It might be a bad day, but not a bad life.

Self-motivation mantra:

Don’t wish for it, work for it.

PERSONAL TRAINER

Being fit and healthy is not just a hobby to me, it is a lifestyle that generates many positive benefits. I have always enjoyed working hand in hand with those around me to achieve their fitness goals. Not just while in the gym, but also out of the gym as our lifestyle determines how effective the training we undertake will be.
— Gerald Chew

About me

I started weight training at the age of 20 and now do not go more than a month without working out. Back then at the start going to the gym wasn’t as popular as it is now and information wasn’t that readily as available, compared to the abundance of knowledge around now. Which inspired me to start learning for myself and understanding the industry. From there, the more I trained, the more Fitness evolved into a deeper passion for me.

Being fit and healthy is not just a hobby to me, it is a lifestyle that generates many positive benefits. I have always enjoyed working hand in hand with those around me to achieve their fitness goals. Not just while in the gym, but also out of the gym as our lifestyle determines how effective the training we undertake will be.

Each and every successful result my clients achieve, motivates me to go even further, because I take pride when I see them progress. 

Being more specific I enjoy working around the barbell and dumbbell complex, as I believe free weights bring us the most benefits. However I also specialise in 

Functional training Strength and conditioning Bodybuilding Weightlifting Pre and post-natal training.
