Kelly Lee Jee Eon

Through her own experiences and working with various types of clients whilst coaching at rugby clubs, F45 and Ritual as well as through personal training, Kelly realised fitness shouldn’t always be about extreme weight loss and dieting as the media shows.

Kelly focuses on creating a safe space for her clients and incorporating fitness into their lifestyle according to their needs. Whether that’s being able to move freely during pregnancy or postpartum, being able to run faster as a rugby player, being able to lift your baby up without any pain, or even being able to do a push up! 

Train according to how you feel. There is no finish line to developing sustainable health and wellness habits. Just be present and consistent.


Ati Md Yusoff

Ati has always been active. Since young, she’s been doing track and field, played netball and loved Zumba. Although active, her weight has been up and down. After her third child, Ati tried to go back to her pre-pregnancy weight but found it difficult. Eventually, she started going to the gym but felt at a loss of where to start. 

This is when she started to learn more about weight training and high-intensity training. Soon, friends started to approach Ati requesting for her to train with them. As a result of the joy she received from training with her friends, she decided to attain her personal training certificate. 

Ati notices a lot of ladies have difficulty with low confidence and don’t dare to go to the gym alone. In this she found her passion; helping women to be more active and healthy and at the same time, building their confidence.

"Like most women I had an important family event coming up and my first thought was I need to lose weight. I had been going to the gym on a regular basis, working out on my own but found myself stuck in a routine of doing the same workout.

As part of my journey to lose weight, Danielle has helped me reignite that enjoyment and motivation to workout. I have found our personal training sessions to be well thought out, varied and interesting. Danielle has introduced me to different types of exercises as well as how to use a variety of gym equipment which has given me more confidence when working out on my own.

I have been training with Danielle for nearly a year and she has kept me motivated and helped me achieve my initial goal of losing weight (ongoing goal) and more importantly keeping it off. Danielle has also helped me discover a new love for strength training and changed my perspective that strong women can be sexy too!"
