PIT Managing Director/Personal Trainer/Strength Coach/Metcon Coach

I set up the PIT to provide a space for people who want to train seriously. I believe that training requires discipline, and disciplined people need a place to call home. By providing a positive environment, with proper instruction and honest programmes, only positive results can come out from it.

I do what I do because helping people unleash an inner being is liberating.

My philosophy is this – I believe in positive change. Because it is human nature to want to be better. To evolve. We all have to change. We just have to take calculated steps to make sure that we change for the better.

I will go the extra mile together with my peers IF you are committed to your goals. The best motivation does not come from us. It comes from inside you – When you amaze yourself with what you can really do.

Everyone wants to go to the gym to work out. That’s all good. But don’t settle for mediocrity. Go forth and be awesome.

Train hard. Live long and prosper.

Ving and his fellow PITMASTERS are a great bunch of guys who make training enjoyable in a great, friendly and professional atmosphere - and I would recommend the PIT as THE place to not only rebuild yourself but make new friends.
