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 membership.

I started training with Eric this summer, mostly boxing. I loved my sessions. He was always mixing up the cardio so I never got bored. He’s so motivating and very funny too so all in all a good fun training session.

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 bonus!

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. Thanks EC.

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 guy.

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 single training.
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.
