“Training with Guna is more than lifting weights, sweating, working out or losing weight. The team has helped me realize that fitness is about leading a healthy life and they keep me honest even when I cheat on myself. At the end of the day, whether you want to lose weight, bulk up, get stronger or just be healthier, you'll have a great trainer to rely on to reach those goals. And if you're up for it, you'll have fun while you're there too.”
“I have been training with Guna since 2003 and have not regretted since. He is very flexible and effective. He'll tailor make the training program to suit your interests as well as your needs, and will also try to accommodate your schedule when he can. When I was pregnant, he encouraged me to continue training (when I was allowed to), and this helped during the pregnancy, through to birth. Guna is not only my personal trainer, but he's also grown to be a very caring and thoughtful friend throughout these years.”
Wen Lee (Management Consultant, Multinational Software Company)
“With family, work and travel commitments, keeping a regular exercise schedule is very challenging for me. Guna has been instrumental in helping me develop a level of consistency and discipline in my fitness program. He is flexible and adjusts the training routine to my schedule as well as the exercises to my slipped disc condition. ”
KK (IT Architect, Multinational Software Company)
“Guna has been my personal trainer for nearly ten years. The results I have achieved are largely due to his training methods and exercise programs which are challenging and at the same time achievable. Guna is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, patient and friendly. He is not just my personal trainer but also a good friend.”
Tan Soo Kiat (Project Implementation Specialist, ES Consultancy)
“I first met Guna in 2003 when he was at California Fitness and was so impressed with his level of commitment to his clients that I decided to have him as my personal trainer.
Soon work and personal commitments hindered me from continuing with his services but he was the first person I called when I knew I needed help staying in shape and in strengthening my knees due to my recent surgery.I have never looked back since!
Guna is not just my trainer but a friend as well. Thanks for continuing to push me dude!
“I have lost track of the number of people I referred to Kumi. She’s just so good. Her method of therapy is so special. I go to her with neck and backache and she is able to tell me the source is actually in the stomach. She has this unique magical touch that makes you feel so much better after seeing her.”
“I came to see Kumi with a Meniscus injury. I had consulted a doctor prior to that and he said I need surgery. A friend of mine recommended that I see Kumi as she had helped him and he is able to carry on his sports. He was right, I have recovered and back to playing tennis weekly. Thank you for your healing hands Kumi!”
“Thank you for your expert help and treatment. Within 2 sessions my neck and shoulder pain has reduced dramatically!
You will be my first port of call in another emergency. Most thankful!”
“I have trained with Guna since 2006, and in that time he has helped motivate me to achieve my best at the gym. He adapts training methods to suit my evolving needs and keeps me energised and motivated by exploring the latest training techniques and equipment available. Guna is a pleasant, happy and friendly; and we have become personal friends over the many years that we have been training together. ”
Thomas Lillelund (General Manager & Principal Officer, International Reinsurance Company)
“I am a naturally lazy person when it came to exercise and working out. A lot of it to be blamed on my irratic working hours and hectic schedule. However, one of my dreams is to get in better shape and getting some muscle toned. So i was lucky to have a chance to workout with Guna. My experience with Guna has been extremely rewarding and inspiring so far. I started training with him since Dec 2009 and have felt that its one of the best investments I've ever made.
Guna has been extremely motivational, inspirational, knowledgeable and well-prepared. He keeps the energy up during the workouts and the personal care and attentiveness is unmatched.
I can only say that as long as i am living in Singapore I can’t think of any other that I can use their guidance to help me achieve my fitness goals. And last but not the least Guna is a trainer to have for life...his passion in helping his clients meet their fitness goals is second to none.
Thanks a lot Guna!!
“When Guna asked me to write a testimonial for him a few months ago, the first thing that came into my mind was how often he says PT is all about physical torture and pain, or how often he says, “I’ll kick your ass, 20 reps, hurry up!”. His favorite motto is “if it hurts, work it more”. At the end of the day, you just give up complaining and, to borrow Nike’s motto, JUST DO IT.
But that, I think, is the magic in the way Guna approaches training. For him, training hard is more of a mental challenge. He took the time to figure out what makes me tick and what motivates me. Once he figured all that out, he uses it to make sure I pushed on through hell and high water and overcame a defeatist attitude. Guna doesn’t recognize the words “I can’t”.
Since I started training with Guna over 2 years ago, I’ve found that I’m physically and mentally stronger (I’ll let Guna be the final word on that) and (I think). I’ve started to look forward to my sessions with him. I particularly enjoy it when I know I’ve just gone through an especially challenging workout.”
Wilma Muhundan (Asst. General Counsel (Legal), Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA))
“"I was suffering from a shoulder injury that prevented me from lifting weights for 6 months. After seeing Guna, he improved my form and modified my workouts and I was back lifting weights like before within 2 months"”
Vinoth Kanna Selvaraju (Digital Media Analyst, Dentsu Aegis Network)
“Guna's PT sessions, over the last 11 years always put a spring in my step and keep me fit. A favorite addiction I cannot live without.”
Vonita Samtani (Regional Director, Asia Pacific | Consulting/ South Asia market Development, WGSN.)
“Started training with Guna couple of months already. All I can say is the man has helped me believe in myself. He's not only a great physical trainer but also a fantastic health guru who covers all angles of my being. Can't recommend highly enough!”
Andy Li (Director, Pinata Studios)
“I have been training with Guna since 2012, and find him a very conscientious personal trainer. He’s very knowledgeable on the human physiology and customizes his training to suit specific needs of his clients. Guna is very effective in working with clients who need targeted attention, particularly if they are recovering from joint or muscle injuries.
Kumi is a probably one of the best physiotherapist in Singapore with a magical touch. She has an amazing talent in being able to identify musculoskeletal problems and works with her patients and their doctors to deliver lasting results.
Ana. D (Financial Services Professional)
“I went for a free trial personal training session in the February 2017. It was my very first time meeting Gunalan Palanisamy who turn out to be my current personal trainer. After the trial session, I decided to sign up for personal training with Gunalan immediately because he was able to give me assurance that I could achieve my fitness goals. Since then, I have benefitted so much in terms of improving my fitness knowledge and my physique. I can see the difference in my body. I have no doubts about his professionalism as he is very committed to his clients. He has never failed me in my training sessions.
If I ever need to recommend a personal trainer, Gunalan would definitely be the first one on my list.
