I am really grateful that I stumbled upon Ryan's website while searching for a Personal Coach that will help me prep for my first competition.
He was indeed a great coach and a good friend. Whenever I have doubts during the journey, he would motivate me and inspire me more.
He is highly knowledgeable in his field and I have learned so much from him during this process. He will clearly explain to you each workouts and he is always ready to answer your questions about training & nutrition. He knows exactly what needs to be done especially when prepping for a competition.
And I like the fact that he would push me beyond my comfort zone. Preparing for a competition is tough. Especially this is my first time. Ryan has been supportive all throughout the process. From training, nutrition and for being a good friend. Our training session was never dull. He is encouraging, his sense of humour and I always feel like I am in good hands.
I have achieved my Fitness Goal while under his care. More so, He has helped me with my wins for my first 2 competitions:
IFBB Philippines 2019 Newcomer ( 4th Place)
NBFA Singapore 2019 (3rd Place Bikini Model).
I will always be forever grateful of him. All the knowledge I learned from him, his words of wisdom I will always carry them with me. I have improved so much under his care being strong mentally and physically.
If you're looking for someone to help you achieve your fitness goals, I would highly recommend Ryan. He has incredible knowledge and he is sincere and will always look out after you making sure that you achieve your goal. His knowledge, energy and encouragement will make each session a very productive one.

I have history of shoulder injury but wanted to continue to do strength training for maintaining a healthy life style. I engaged Ryan as I was looking for a personal trainer to assist me with the proper use of the smith machine that I recently acquire. Being a newbie to gym equipment usage, he started me off by introducing me to the various exercises that can be done on the machine. This was valuable as I was able to practice on them during off training session. After a training plan was established for me, he continues to spot my flaws and kept providing reminders on proper form to execute and to focus on areas that the exercises targeted. This has been very helpful as it allows me to witness a progressive increase in load and yet not aggravating my existing injury. I also witness an improved physique progressively. Ryan is very observant and has also prove to be a very competent therapist. On days that he noticed I have awkward shoulder or back movement when executing the exercises, he would check on me and provide therapy massage when necessary. I must say that the bonus therapy session is super effective in relieving soreness and stiffness. Training under Ryan has been very pleasant given his jovial personality. Furthermore, he puts more than the stipulated time per session (for most sessions) to complete the exercise plan. Thus overall it felt more like working out with a friend than a training that had to end on the dot. I have thoroughly enjoyed the training session under Ryan. Things that I have gained from the training sessions with Ryan thus far are:
1) Several usage of the smith gym equipment and the areas that they targeted
2) Proper form / posture for the exercises
3) What it meant to feel pumped
4) What it meant to work till fatigue
5) How to gauge between what weight to use and when to increase weight progressively
6) How to execute drop set, partial and perform isolation
7) How to incorporate HIIT in between sets
8) Techniques for posture correction - and stretching after exercise to avoid having knots
9) Expert advise and correction from an experienced trainer who is living as a physique competitor.

I enjoy being trained by Ryan as he manages to push and challenge me so that i get the maximum benefit out of my workout. I feel so amazing after the session! The gung ho vibe Ryan emits is what inspires me and gets me going. Because he injects a large dose of humour into it, I don't feel horrible about being challenged at all. I highly recommend Ryan as he gives a lot of himself in such a unique and professional manner in personal training.

I took up buddy training with Ryan for a few sessions so as to learn more about fitness, clarify any misconceptions and learn more advance techniques. Ryan is a friendly trainer who went beyond just motivating and pushing me during the training sessions. He made each session very educational in ensuring that I could learn new techniques to apply in my routines. Moreover, he's approachable, answering any questions I might have along the week. He demonstrates good knowledge in the field of fitness too. What's most humbling is that even though he's a lot stronger, fitter and a winner fitness competitions, he is not arrogant and demonstrates great humility by treating you not only a a client but as a friend. I've enjoyed training with him and I've learnt a lot. Thank you very much Ryan!
