“In true Hong Kong fashion, I have a hectic work schedule, dislike gyms and LOVE food; I had always postponed training until I met Esther. I went to the first lesson with lots of self doubt and self consciousness, but she was quick to make me feel at home and most importantly -for someone that had never used her upper body muscles-, she made me feel safe. She pushes me, but guides me throughout every single workout, she has all these personalised charts and tables that add the bit of professionalism that reassures someone like me. I finally feel I am in the right path and can commit to a healthier more balanced lifestyle.  Bonus points for being one of the few doggy friendly personal trainers!”

“We had a great time with Esther leading circuits - she had creative workout plans, which were both fun and hard work! She was attentive with our form which is important for preventing injury and also maximising the effectiveness of the exercises. The SUP coaching was also really useful - even if you've been out before, having someone teach you how to do it properly is great!”

"I highly recommend Esther as your very own PT. Esther has helped me achieve more strength and flexibility in my weaknesses and gently encouraged me to push myself a little more. In my job it's very important for me to remain fit and strong as in many situations I come across I need to rely on my strength. Esther understood this and worked on areas and wrote programs that fulfilled this. Esther is motivating, calm and relaxed, making anyone in her presence feel the same."

"Absolutely love training with Esther. Before we started training, she sat down and listened to me and mapped out a strategy to achieve my goals. She’d create a month long program at a time, and with every new exercise she’d pay close attention to my form so I could slowly add weights without getting injured. She’s got great energy and knows how to encourage you without being annoying- how to push you so you leave feeling great about what you achieved (and usually pretty sweaty). Because of the training I did with her I successfully completed a race feeling stronger then I thought possible! I’ve given her name to four other women who also have had and continue to have positive feedback. I really can’t recommend Esther enough!"
