2-time Asian Silver Medallist, SEA Champion

Working with Matthew has been one of my best decisions. Initially, I had no knowledge of my capabilities with zero exercise and lacking an athletic background. Together, we built everything from the ground up. Through years of coaching and training, we consistently reached new heights, breaking records in two weight classes, and securing gold and silver in various international championships. Matthew identified potential in me that I couldn't see in myself. Despite early communication challenges in our coach-athlete relationship, we worked through them, and everything has been excellent since. Matthew is more than a coach; he's a friend and mentor who actively listens, empathises, and adjusts to feedback, whether it's about coaching style, communication, or training. He plays a significant role in my life and sets the standard for me as a personal trainer—I'm committed to delivering nothing less to my own clients.

Working with my Matthew Yap has been a truly life changing experience, surpassing my initial expectations in every aspect. When I first started, I faced a number of challenges, both physically and mentally. Matthew, however, approached each obstacle with unwavering dedication and a plethora of knowledge. From tackling form corrections to breaking through strength plateaus, his personalised approach ensured that every session was tailored to my specific needs and goals. The initial challenges, which seemed daunting at first, became stepping stones for my progress under his expert guidance.

Matthew is unique from other coaches not only because of his technical proficiency, but due to the genuine personal connection that he establishes with his clients. Beyond the barbells, he took the time to deeply understand my motivations, fears, and aspirations. This level of understanding fostered an environment of trust, making each training session not just a physical endeavour but a shared journey towards personal growth. The emotional support and encouragement I received was felt both inside and outside the gym.

On a personal level, I have experienced remarkable growth under Matthew’s guidance. Physically, I achieved multiple milestones I once deemed impossible, breaking through my own limitations. Emotionally, the confidence and mental resilience cultivated during training sessions translated into a positive mindset that permeated through all aspects of my life. The highlights of the services provided by Matthew include not only the technical prowess displayed in refining my lifting technique whilst squatting, bench pressing and deadlifting but also the constant motivation that propelled me through challenging moments. As a result, I not only met, but exceeded my fitness goals, experiencing huge improvements in strength and overall well-being.

I wholeheartedly recommend Matthew to anyone seeking not only physical transformation but a holistic and personalized approach to health and fitness. His dedication, expertise, and genuine care for his clients sets him apart in the realm of personal training. I am immensely grateful for the positive impact he has had on my life, and I cannot thank him enough for the unwavering support, guidance, and belief in my potential. Working with Matthew has been a life-changing experience, and I am excited to continue this journey of growth and strength under his mentorship.

Embarking on my powerlifting journey in October 2022, I faced initial challenges in handling a barbell. Seeking guidance, I discovered an invaluable mentor in Matthew. His personalised approach not only provided direction to my Powerlifting training but also forged a strong personal connection, instilling a sense of purpose in my training. Under Matthew's coaching, I experienced a transformative journey, achieving milestones, both physically and mentally. His unwavering support triggered a positive mindset shift, boosting my confidence and giving me a newfound sense of purpose beyond lifting weights. The entirety of Matthew's coaching stood out, creating an enjoyable and rewarding learning environment. The remarkable progress, from mastering basics to conquering complex lifts, exceeded my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend Matthew's coaching to those seeking not just fitness guidance, but a mentor invested in both physical and mental well-being. My deepest gratitude extends to Matthew for the profound positive impact he's had on my lifting journey. As a friend and coach, he remains someone I greatly admire and look up to.
