Vibesh Karayil

Hello! Thanks for reading my profile.

I am Vibesh (ˈvɪbiːsh). I am here to offer 1-to-1 personal training and online coaching under my brand Fitfoody.

About Me

I have always been a recreational athlete. I got into fitness and lifting weights in my mid 20’s. However, things started changing when I moved through different phases of life: higher education, an office-based role, work stress, socialising, parenting all leading to lack of physical activity caused me to gain weight and it started affecting my life. Despite all these setbacks, I was naturally inquisitive about fitness, nutrition and exercise principles & kept learning about exercise techniques, hypertrophy and fat loss.

In 2017, I started to re-focus on my physical and mental fitness. When it comes to my own training my motivation is unparalleled. I combine compound exercises, interval training & suspension training to break my limits and push through mental barriers. I managed to lose (14kg/2.2st) while reducing fat percentage from 18.3% to 9%. I also gained my formal personal training qualification right after this transformative journey. Well, that’s enough about me!

How can I help you?

I am here to educate, motivate and help my clients to reach their fitness and health goals. My coaching approach is “SIMPLE” as outlined below:

S = Set expectations
I = Invite commitment
M = Measure progress
P = Provide feedback
L = Link to consequences
E = Evaluate effectiveness

In this process I prioritise technique improvement, injury prevention and accountability. I strongly believe there is more than one way to achieve your fitness goals. To make fitness more fun and enjoyable I mix a varied training method, my personal favourites being compound exercises, plyometric training, high intensity interval training and suspension training.

As an individual I am happy, outgoing and totally approachable. Come and say hello when you see me at the gym floor or in one of the group classes!
