“Everyone at FENIX treats me like a family member and this makes me feel very much at home.” TOMOKO
Joseph pushes me to challenge myself in the gym and advises me on my diet which is an important factor.
This is a foreign country for me, and English is not my mother tongue. Under such circumstances, I was quite nervous about communicating with my Coach. But Joseph and FENIX staff were always very kind. Joseph would even speak some Japanese to me which made me feel more comfortable. So now I don’t feel any stress regarding communication.
Training alone can be lonely and difficult to keep up your motivation. But with a reliable Coach and repeated small successes, I became both mentally and physically stronger.
This challenge was, and still is a tough road. But I could have never have made such progress without Joseph and all the staff’s encouraging support. I do very much appreciate them, and I’m so glad that I chose your gym. Thank you, FENIX. I’m so excited about my next chapter with FENIX!

My main goal is to be healthy and fit when I’m older and more importantly when my one-year-old daughter grows up.
I gained about 12kg when my daughter was born due to lack of sleep and activity. I wanted to get my physique back and feel more confident when I wear my clothes.
With Jo’s support and coaching, my mindset has shifted over time, and I managed to achieve what I wanted.
Jo was supportive with regular check-ins and refining my nutrition, which made the whole journey more enjoyable. She helped me fine-tune my lifting techniques, helping me to connect with my body better.
I had some fears on how work and personal travel would affect overall progress. Jo gave me tips on how to balance meals out during the day. These tricks helped me to keep up with my fat loss, even when travelling. I now know how to eat out without feeling stressed and am confident to manage my nutrition.
The culture at FENIX is great, all Coaches are very supportive and helpful. I love the whole ecosystem and they have some delish protein shakes!

The ethos of FENIX is all about understanding their clients; it’s not a one-size-fits-all strategy. A clear differentiator from past gyms.
From the initial consult, Safiya listened and asked a lot of questions to comprehend what I wanted to achieve, what was possible and move towards that goal.
Given my “fit it all in” personality and hectic schedule, she suggested small changes in habits and confirmed sessions on a week-by-week basis. She was consistent with checking in with me on how things were going and willing to change things if they weren’t. Her positive vibe mixed with her motivational quotes and no nonsense approach when training were critical to my success.
I have more a balanced outlook to training. I used to think if I wasn’t decimated at the end of a training session that it wasn’t a good session. Working in finance, my hours are long and erratic and adding intense workouts during the week would leave me drained on the weekends. Now, my training is according to what is happening in my life. I have more energy not only at work but on the weekends – so I end up being more active and see results without the jolt to my system.
“I lost 6 kilos and 5% of body fat. I noticed that I am less sluggish and heavy, and more nimble.” LIJU
I have been doing various forms of training for 7 years but have never managed to achieve an aesthetic outcome even though that was what I really wanted. Sharon helped me arrive at exactly what and where I wanted, and has also empowered me to plan for my future goals.
From the first time I met Sharon, I laid out my issues very openly: lack of time due to a tough work schedule and also difficulty in being strict with nutrition. I live with a family who enjoys food and eats out often, I attend many social gatherings and have frequent overseas trips.
Sharon takes a scientific, research-based approach towards training and nutrition, and everything made sense. My previous training experiences have always been of larger volume and higher intensity. Training at FENIX with Sharon was entirely different as we reduced the volume whilst maintaining an effective intensity. This really helped me with recovery without compromising my strength progression.
All in all, the experience in FENIX is extremely comfortable - the space is beautifully designed and the equipment is excellent.
“Team FENIX has given me an extremely fabulous experience with life-changing results which I am greatly thankful for.” DHRUV

Over the last few years my lifestyle has changed quite a bit, with more responsibilities and less time.
With a seven-month-old son, starting a new job and a lot of other responsibilities, my biggest fear was: How am I going to fit and commit to the program to achieve my goals?
Everything done in moderation with the right balance of nutrition, exercise, daily activity and sleep is more than enough to see tremendous results and Sharon was able to guide me through all of these areas to eventually start building daily habits for me which have now become a sustainable part of my everyday lifestyle. These daily habits have also helped reduce stress and tiredness which was something I was struggling with quite a bit.
Working with Sharon has been amazing as not only did I achieve my results, but along the way I learnt so much more which has been extremely valuable. I have been training for many years, but no matter how much experience you have there is always room for improvement and growth.
FENIX is for everyone, no matter what your goals are or what level of fitness you are at. You just have to believe in yourself, show up and trust the team at FENIX and your coach to do the rest.
“My coach Johanna has always been there for me – physically and mentally.” SEMI

I am now feeling my healthiest and most confident in terms of fitness knowledge and my relationship with food.
Before starting my journey with FENIX, I would have boozy weekend brunches with friends that would continue till 2 to 3am the next morning. I usually ordered in junk food on Sundays to cure my hangovers. This had me caught in a vicious cycle. I was counting calories and going to the gym six days a week, but nobody told me that I wasn’t doing it the right way.
When I didn't see any noticeable progress, I started having doubts about my health condition: 'Do I have a hormonal issue? Is there something wrong with my body?" FENIX taught me that efficiency is key; that one solid hour of training two to three days a week can make a huge difference. My coach Johanna showed me how to properly engage the intended muscles for each exercise.
Through education and constant check-ins, she also helped me overcome my unhealthy eating habits. I now understand how to find balance in my training and lifestyle so that I can still enjoy the things I love.
“I lost over 12 Kilograms and 10% of body fat. I feel lighter, faster and stronger.” VISHAAL
I struggled with being consistent and finding a workout routine that I enjoyed. After starting my journey here at FENIX with Johanna, I began seeing a positive impact on my life.
The space and equipment here at FENIX is first-class. Jo ensures that I reap the most benefits from them by fine-tuning the execution of my lifts. This enables me to target the right muscles and move with intention. Jo is also remarkably patient when coaching me. She is encouraging and pays attention to the little details that turn out to be not little after all.
My sleep has improved; I enjoy food much more than before. It is an empowering feeling to understand the ways of tracking food. I am now equipped with the knowledge to enjoy tasty, nutrient-rich meals while becoming healthier and leaner. I feel sharper, more confident and am able to communicate more effectively with everyone I cross paths with – be it in a professional or personal setting.
“FENIX made the body in my head a reality.” CRAIG

I always felt strong, but never felt confident with my shirt off. I also had knee and back issues.
Having a coach is crucial in ensuring what you have set out to achieve is achieved. My coach Tom said to me: “If you really want to do this, we will make it happen”. It was a commitment I made to myself and to Tom, which is how my foundation was built.
Tom balanced my training with my nutrition and made sure I was tracking my progress each week. From time to time, I did make mistakes – but Tom got me back on track and my mindset was calibrated to keep chipping away at it. Stretching was built into my training routine and full range of motion was met correctly with every lift. As a result, my knee and back pain have disappeared, my body shape has been enhanced, my lifestyle has been embedded and my confidence is at a new all-time high.
Everyone can achieve their perfect body through FENIX. It’s not a matter of “if” you can but rather “when”.

Sports has always been at the centre of my life; my goal was to enhance my fitness to perform better on the pitch.
I would go to the gym to help enhance my sports performance, but my knowledge of weight lifting and nutrition was limited. As I grew older, I had less time to dedicate to sports, my weight fluctuated, and it affected my performance on the pitch; I had to make a change. Tom is a wealth of knowledge, and he is constantly keeping up to date with fitness and nutrition. Tom understood what I needed, given my time constraints and busy lifestyle. He formulated a comprehensive plan to help me meet my goals.
