“MORE THAN OFTEN CHEE CHONG, WOULD LOOK OUT OF THE BOX IN SEARCH OF ANSWERS PRIOR TO PAINS AND INJURIES, TO AID OTHERS IN REACHING THEIR PERSONAL GOALS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY KEEPING THEM PAIN FREE!”

Before I came to knew Chee Chong, I was troubled by injuries and probably facing my lowest point in training for the longest time, not being able to squat properly and repping out big numbers like before.  I even had problem racking out the bar as pain starts shooting down my lumbar even before engaging in a squat. Chee Chong readily discovered my weaknesses and was generous to share his knowledge of activating my muscles before training. Breaking the traditional barrier of just foam rolling and stretching. Chee Chong was a firm believer of activation exercises, and had instilled good training philosophies to not only me but also many others. I would not have realized that my weakness in gluteus and core could actually cause pain in my lumbar, which snowballed and finally took its toll causing a herniated disc. Working along with Chee Chong, I came to understand the importance of activation exercises, strengthening my weak points and working around injuries. It did not took me long till my first squat session in the gym, and to my surprise there wasn’t a relapse in pain shooting down the lumbar ever since. Chee Chong was always there to answer my endless questions and did not hesitate to go the distance, and keeping me injury free.  Being to experience sports injuries himself, he is in the best position to guide and advice. He never fails to look at things from my perspective and would give me optimal training advices throughout.
