memories with him and he teached me the sport of boxing.

My personal trainer Eric is dedicated and helpful. I would recommend
Eric if you are looking for a home based personal trainer. Be prepared
to pay because his services aren’t cheap as compared to paying for a gym

Coach EC is fantastic! I love the way he tailors all exercises to my

achieved great results so far!

so motivating and very funny too so all in all a good fun training

I fully recommend Eric as a PT. He is very knowledgeable (training,
diet, wellness), great motivator, tailors workouts well (injuries or
environments) and is very pleasant/ easy going to deal with. He has
helped me set and achieve fitness goals and always find time to answer
questions and explain things well. He also does boxing which is a great

When I started training with EC, I was not too confident about my
physical possibilities. But week after week I surprised myself doing
things that I would have never dreamt about. I got faster, I lost
weight, I was able to handle greatest weights, I was more and more
flexible. I started to love physical training!, and that was a real
surprise for someone over 50 that had not made much sport in the past.
EC has not just been my coach and trainer, he’s been like a part of my
conscience pushing me harder, showing me the way to handle my physical
fears, and, most important of all, with a wide smile and gentle touch.

After a few training sessions together in Leonard's absence, this
morning we had a great boxing session. Even though he is not training
me full time, he has taken the time to engage with me, observed and
somehow managed to get me working on resetting my mind frame!
Technically as a physical personal trainer he is exceptional, but also
taking the time to understand how your clients mind works / is just as
important! We as clients forget that the mind needs to work in
conjunction with the body to achieve our goals and when your trainer can
read and identify what makes you tick - I know for me this is a game
changer! I think Eric underestimates his mentoring ability!

Eric has been my trainer for past few months. He is energetic and and always has a smile on his face .
EC urges his clients to push beyond their comfort zone - something that has not only benefited me but also shown results.
I wish him the best for all his future endeavors

Training with Eric is enjoyable and fun, one thing that's outstanding
which I've never experienced from any coach or even teachers in schools
before is his passion for his job. His enthusiasm is extraordinary for
every session, that it inspires me to train hard and enjoy the work out
even when it's tough and tiring. He always patiently answers our
demanding questions regarding exercising and deal with our negotiations
for less repeats (or lighter weights) without any frustration. Each
session is fun, light hearted yet rewarding. I could feel my strength
improves. It is especially evident as I started struggling doing 10 push
ups but could now repeat 15 with correct posture. And this is just one
evidence. It is definitely worth the time and effort to train with EC,
with his encouragement and passion, the usually painful work out becomes
such an enjoyable experience!

The time that Eric has been teaching me, I have seen huge growth in my
physical abilities. Not only does he know how to achieve muscle growth,
but he also knows how to grow the right way so as to not injure you. it
has been a pleasure training with EC. He's a great coach, and a good

I was happy and satisfied to have Eric aka Dinghe as my PT. He was one of
the very passionate person I have came across in my life. His dedication
of training himself and his client, I could say 101%. None of his
training is boring as he is very energetic and optimistic in every
I started off with 1-1 training with EC on the 1st 13 sessions with him.
I could see great improvement in my workout posture and able to lift
even heavier weight and build up all the muscle in my body. Even my
friends and colleagues can see the different. After the 13 sessions, I
persuaded my girlfriend to join me for the buddy training. Indeed less
than half of the sessions, she could see the different in her body
posture as well as her salsa dance.
Do engage him for the trial session, you will understand what I meant by “Passion”.
“PASSION is when you put more energy into something than is required to
do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is
ambition that is materialized into action to put as much Heart, Mind,
Body and Soul into something as is humanly possible.”

When I came to Singapore I was lucky enough to find Eric and I LOVE our
sessions together! I have had personal trainers previously - many years
ago - and whilst I achieved some of the results I was after I never
really looked forward to the sessions. I genuinely look forward to
training with EC, and always feel great once we’re done - not just
because I’ve had a good workout but because EC is such a positive,
passionate and knowledgeable trainer. He makes our sessions fun. He
adapts them as I progress and he introduces new ways to train so that
the sessions never feel boring or repetitive. He is a fantastic trainer -
if you’re looking for an enjoyable way to get fit, loose weight and
feel great I would highly recommended EC.

My testimonial for an awesome personal trainer.
Signing up with Eric (EC) for personal training is probably one of the
best things I have done for myself! I used to be a skeptic – wondering
if the sessions were going to be useful and if it would be that much
different from hitting the gym alone. Trust this couch potato – it is.
EC was extremely patient – taking time to discuss my training goals with
me and advising me on ways to incorporate good changes into my
lifestyle – one step at a time. He was encouraging and yet still tough,
ensuring that I didn’t cut corners and made every workout session count.
It felt good coming back each week feeling a little stronger and
enjoying the workout a bit more. EC also took time to understand my body
condition (i.e. old injuries) and designed my work-out accordingly.
This gave me the confidence that I was in capable hands and that he
would be looking out for my safety whilst pushing me to be at my
personal best. Finally, his passion and dedication as a personal trainer
is amazing. I have simply not seen anyone with that much energy!
EC – Thank you for showing me that working out can be enjoyable and
safe. Thank you for going the extra mile to help me make positive
changes to my lifestyle. I am looking forward to returning to Singapore
and signing up with you again.
