Wai Yip

How many Sundays have you said, “I'll start tomorrow”?

Unhappy and self-conscious with how you look and feel? Feeling 'lost' when you're in the gym? Overwhelmed by the amount of training and nutrition information out there? Hi, I'm Wai (pronounced “way”) and I've been there.

Being overweight for most of my life, health and fitness were simply not on my radar. I reached a point where I was sick and tired of feeling unhappy with myself. So I bit the bullet, determined to take control.

I had no training experience and was scared of entering the gym so I hired a PT. Through their guidance, I discovered my love for functional fitness and more importantly, gained the self-confidence I'd craved my entire life.

My body and mind can do things the old me never knew they could. Now, I get to pay this forward. Coaching people through their own journeys. Giving them the tools to move better, get fitter, and feel awesome.

My approach:

...I’ll coach you through an individually designed programme, firstly mastering fundamental movements. It'll be a programme that's unique to you and your lifestyle - that gets you to where you want to be.

My aim:

...To help you live and maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle, ensuring that you can enjoy what the world has to offer without being restricted by poor movement, lack of fitness or injuries.

Take comfort in the fact I've been where you are now. You're worth the effort.
