There are some things that all Genesis Gym Coaches have in common.
- A passion to see clients get results

- Great professional care for clients
- Ability to teach and motivate
- A love for training and living a healthy lifestyle i.e. leading by example.
- A love for sharing what they know to help clients (Check out the Genesis Coach Blog)
Only coaches who have all these attributes are invited to be part of our team. In addition, every coach undergoes a through, 4 stage education process at Genesis Gym that help them better serve the needs of clients as they gain more knowledge and experience.
Currently our Mountbatten Square gym is supervised by senior coach Jen Li Sheng, and our Tras street location is supervised by Malcolm Pow.
Coach Jonathan Wong has 12 years of personal training, public speaking and sports performance coaching experience. He has a doctorate in Holistic Medicine, and is the author of “The Happy Body – Getting to the Root of Your Fitness, Health And Productivity”. Coach Jon supervises all aspects of client training and staff education at Genesis Gym.
Genesis Senior Coaches are probably the best educated fitness professionals in Singapore. They have at least 6 years of training experience, a minimum of 18 months of coaching at Genesis, as well as a certification of at least Level 2 of the Poliquin International Certification Program (PICP), what many consider to be the most demanding and educational personal training certification in the world. Completion requires multiple examinations and a five day practical training program in either Australia, Europe, or the USA.
They are able to help with almost all of the problems clients face regarding training, nutrition and health – using science, and results based solutions.
Malcolm is in charge of the Lean Body Bootcamp program at Genesis Gym. He has been with Genesis for more than 4 years. He has a degree in Sports Science from Edith Cowan University and is certified at Level 2 of the PICP. He is extremely goal oriented and wants to see clients achieve their very best. He is always optimistic and believes that clients can achieve great results no matter how many struggles a client may have gone through in the past, he can also motivate while being easy going at the same time.
Jen Li Sheng
Jen is in charge of Genesis Gym’s Personal Training services. He is a gentle giant – weighing 115kg, but clients compliment him on his coaching skill and ability to teach healthy lifestyle habits. He has more than 10 years of training experience, and in 2008 and 2010 was the winner of the “Singapore’s Strongest Man” competition. Jen is certified at Level 2 of the PICP. Despite being a very large guy… Jen is friendly and caring for the needs of clients, while at the same time being very results oriented.
Chris supervises the supplement sales at Genesis Gym. He is a coach who has wide experiences in the fitness industry and uses them to help clients get results. He is diligent at work and study and constantly works on improving himself. He is a former FISAF course instructor, and is certified at Level 2 of the PICP. Chris is attentive to clients needs, and is good at giving specific instructions to make sure training is carried out correctly. He is also firm but understanding when it comes to helping clients improve their lifestyle habits.
All Genesis Coaches need to have more that 4 years of training experience, and undergo a full one week, full time, practical education and assessment period run by Coach Jon as well as a 3 month probation period where they learn all they need to know about how to help clients get consistent results, the Genesis Gym way.
Alison is the first female coach to work at Genesis. Alison is a lady who knows enough and trains enough that even the male clients will listen to her advice. Alison has been working in the fitness industry since graduating from University and loves to train for dragon boat races. She also makes sure “walks the talk” and regularly competes in figure contests. Alison also makes it a point to be understanding and supportive so that clients will be self motivated to make positive changes to their habits.
Melvyn is an inspirational story as a coach. He managed to qualify as a Genesis Coach despite a birth defect that affects his ability to walk with normal movement. He makes up for it with a high energy, a positive attitude and constant study and education. Melvyn is the first Genesis Coach apart from Coach Jon to be certified in the Bio-Signature method of body-fat assessment and measurement. He is driven, passionate and enthusiastic about being the best possible coach regardless of any physical limitations.
