I am Annabelle,
19 years old student. For the past few years I've been trying my
very best to lose weight through eating lesser and running once
or twice a week. You guys should know about the 80% nutrition
and 20% exercise. From the look of it, definitely what I was
doing was not enough.
I approached James 3 months ago and told him about my desire to
lose weight and look toned.
He was really patient and explained to me - it is not about
eating less, but eating right. Running twice a week definitely
isn't going to lose much weight or technically, for me to reach
After knowing my goals - which was to lose weight and most
importantly look toned, he made a program for me to follow.
He also scheduled a session with me so that I am sure of the
technique of the different movements I had to do in the gym.
After that, it was all through online where we communicate about
my questions about gym & nutrition.
Muscle mass - 21.4
Fat mass - 13.9
Body fat percentage - 26.0%
Muscle mass - 21.8
Fat mass - 12.7
Body fat % - 23.9%
In 16 days,
My muscle mass increased by 0.4kg,
My body fat mass decreased by 1.2kg
My body fat % went down by 2.1%.
And this. Was just taken a few days ago,
My muscle mass is now 22.1%,
Body fat mass 12.0,
body fat percentage 22.8%.
As compared to before I started his program till now,
There is an increase of my muscle mass of a 0.7, decrease of
body fat mass of 1.9,
And a decrease of body fat percentage of 3.2%.
As we did this through online after the one session we had, I am
really satisfied with the results. I bet if he were to train me
directly, I'll definitely get better, and quicker results.
I thank James for always answering my questions at night before
I sleep - is oat okay? How much carbs can I take? Is barley
okay? Is ICECREAM okay? Hahaha!
He have always been so patient, and dedicated with what he is
doing. Thank you for putting your heart and passion in guiding
I am now more confident, and am committed in what I'm doing - to
look healthy, and most importantly, be healthy.
I am Jonathan Hong,
25 years old zookeeper. Previously, I do not do any form of
exercises at all. I used to be 110kg. But after huge crash diet,
I went down to 80kg. But ever since i entered in the working
world, my weight increased to 90kg. That’s when I realized that
I needed someone to guide me to a healthy living lifestyle
instead of crash diet. I found James.
James has been a great trainer/motivator to me. I
only met him once a week for training. But he produces a good
result. From his training, teachings and guiding, I manage to
lose weight to 83kg, while gaining muscles.
James is also an innovative trainer. Knowing that
I have no place and no equipment to train, he came up with
various exercises that i can make use of the things around me to
train me up. E.g railings, big rocks.
James also gave me some of his nutrition tips and
taught me how to eat right. I am a sweet tooth. But after
knowing James, the amount of sugar intake decreased
dramatically. I feel healthy now.
To sum up, James is a very knowledgeable and
dedicated trainer. I believe James has the ability to change
people’s life greatly, from slimming down to gaining
muscles/6pacs. Meeting client’s needs and providing welfare for

I am Keira, a 24-year-old female teacher. I
am also a regular runner, and recently decided to train with
James with hope of toning up, increasing my strength for running
a full marathon and learning more about gym training.
A Competent Trainer
James is a competent trainer. He is very
passionate and motivating, and greeted me constantly with
“Today’s workout is going to be exciting!” He is also very
proficient in teaching techniques and forms, as well as planning
programmes to suit his clients’ profile and goals. Under his
comfortably challenging programme, I managed to lose 2 inches of
flab off each of my arm, 2 inches off my waist, and 2 inches off
each of my thighs, which is a big deal because I am not flabby
to begin with. I gained 1.5kg of muscle within a month while
losing those flab too. I increased my running pace from 8.5km/h
to 9km/h. I no longer slouch. James at the same time ensures
good form to prevent gym injuries. James produce results.
James inspires change. Firstly, he converted
me to like the gym. Trainings are very fun; I get excited to
wake up at 6am just to train. There are so many things he can
come up with to suit my likes and dislikes, which makes it
really enjoyable. Secondly, he is very driven himself. He has
lived on “very clean” diets, he trains with a competitive
bodybuilder regime, and he works hard, driven by passion above
everything else. This enthusiasm spreads to me. Thirdly, he
knows what is best for his clients. Once, I asked for a crash
diet. To that, he replied that fitness is not a diet but a
lifestyle. Through him, I learnt how to pick nutritious and
healthy options which I like. Food keeps me very happy, and in
great shape too!
James’ unique selling points are that he is
very dedicated and creative. He once made toasts for me after my
first very intense session of heavy weights. That small gesture
goes a long way. He also places fitness before income, and was
always fine with extending the session a little bit and not
hurrying me to quickly finish my workout. He is very creative,
being able to combine a plethora of exercises into a single
session to work on all muscles. This includes TRX, weights,
resistance bands, mat exercises, combination exercises, gym
machines and outdoor training.
The gym is also conveniently located at Upper
Bukit Timah, and offer three training spots within a single
location. It is very well-equipped, despite the sheer absurdity
that he lives in the gym; his house is the gym. It even has foam
rollers and bosu ball for training purposes.
On the whole,
James made me very comfortable (never once threatened my
easily-jealous boyfriend, haha!). He is a competent trainer, he
inspires change and he is very personable. Cool stuff.

I am Tan Qing, a 22 years old
Student. I only play badminton once a week and James was here to
help me lose some fats and gain some muscles. Basically I
requested for tone up sessions.
My schedule with James was on
every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday for 2 months. He has
inspired me to wake up every early morning just to travel from
Hougang to Upper Bukit Timah Road which takes me 1.5Hours. He
has made training fun although the training programs are always
testing my limits.
During training, he is very
proficient and especially particular on the techniques and
forms. He has never failed to encourage me during training
especially when I was not in the mood to train. He has this
phrase that he always use… ‘Very fun one.’ Which never fails to
make me laugh.
James is a very dedicated and
customer-satisfying trainer. He produces results and he takes
good care of all his clients such as myself. He will assess his
client during workout and after. He would provide necessary
nutrition when possible such as Amino acid drink to help with my
recovery. He puts fitness before income. He has been flexible
with my schedule timings and duration.
He would advice on my diet plans
so as to help me better achieve my goals.
James produces results.
Thanks to his training, I have
managed to achieve a better body posture such as not slouching
as much as before.
My legs and arms are much more
toned up now, less flabby as before due to intensive squats,
dead lift and many more.
My core is better in shape now and
with more training, I believe I would be able to achieve my 4-6
And lastly, which most girls would
love to hear about, is that James has helped me achieve a firmer
and rounded upper chest/breast. I believe it’s due to a better
posture as well. It is very satisfying. Now I believe that
training chest with weights DOES NOT reduce the size of your
chest. And he has definitely proven that to me.
I am now more confident than
before as a whole.
In conclusion, James has been a
competent trainer. And anyone training under him, I am sure to
have achieved what they’ve wanted provided they have the
discipline. I have learnt more about working in a gym and am
inspired to continue training in future.
I would have
continued training under him if situation has allowed me to and
I believe and am very confident to say that I would have achieve
more than what I’ve already did.
