I am a competitive football player but I was plagued by injuries in 2009, it came to the point where I would play a game on Sunday, and then barely recover in time for the next Sunday’s game, the vicious cycle never seemed to end. It was very frustrating as it really hindered my progress.
Thankfully though, I met coach …Jon. After explaining my problems to him, he did a thorough assessment and identified certain issues that were causing the injuries. He then advised me on how to fix these issues in order to be less injury prone. He showed me which stretches would be effective to do, and also wrote me a weight training program that took into account whatever injuries that I have.
1 month later, I was already feeling much better, I made tremendous gains in my flexibility. Whatever injury problems I was facing have disappeared.
It has been slightly more than 2 months now since I have seen Coach Jon, and not only am I less injury prone, but my strength, speed and agility have all improved. In the gym, I’ve made consistent strength gains, and I now warm up with weights that I used to struggle with not too long ago. On the field, I am faster, stronger, more agile, and hardly suffer from injuries.
Coach Jon’s results do speak on their own. But what was more impressive was the way he treated me. At his facility, he was very patient and answered all my questions thoroughly.
As I live in Malaysia, I’m unable to train at Genesis like the others. I consistently give feedback on my training to Coach Jon, and he advises me on what modifications I should make based on my feedback.
He is very open to questions, and answers them professionally. Not only am I a better athlete now, but I have learned a lot from Coach Jon, who is very knowledgeable. Thank you Coach Jon! Desmond Varo, Soccer Athelte, KL, Malaysia
ACL Surgery Rehab – Kenneth Poon
I had an ACL knee surgery recently and ever since then, my knees have never felt that good. Until I came to Genesis and started their ACL rehab program. By the end of 3 months, my knees felt better than ever before. In fact even my injured knee was just as strong as the uninjured one. I feel confident of the strength and stability of my knee now. Kenneth Poon, NUS Student, ACL rehab client
“I joined Genesis Gym for 3 months of training after injuring my meniscus. I love basketball but because of my injury I was not able to play. My doctor told me to go for surgery but I wanted to try a method of treatment that did not involve cutting open my knee.
After 3 weeks of my customized knee rehab program my knee pain is totally gone, my range of motion is complete and I can play basketball again. Last weekend my 3 on 3 basketball team even won most of our games against much younger players! Thanks Coach Jon And Genesis.” Walter Basa, Standard Charted Bank
I was suspected of mild hernia, an injury that requires operation. After consulting Jon, who taught me some exercises. In less than 2 mins of treatment, and massaging, from unable to run for ten steps to able to jump and run. He is really good. Chua Wei Xuan, Basketball Athelte
Had bad knees as long as i can remember. Jon did a 5min whatchamacallit massage on the sides of both knees and the pain was gone!! Apparently, he massaged the internal scar tissues away. He has to hold my leg in one hand and massage using his other hand. I guess there isn’t more than a handful of people locally in SG who can do that to me – if you know how much i weigh!! (125kg) – Yu Jiunn Pyng, Ex Singapore National Rugby Team
My progress at the Genesis Gym has been great.
I also achieved my fat loss and muscle gaining goals and now weigh 84kg with low body fat.
My ACL Knee injury is now 100% recovered and I am back to full speed and full strength. I am even taking part actively in martial arts, basketball and other sports.
My strength, posture and flexibility has also increased tremendously; I am also fully confident in my previously injured knee.
My family and friends have commented on the phenomenal loss of weight and the gain in strength. Training here is one of the best decisions I have ever made! Thank You! Norman Tan, National University Of Singapore
I previously had really terrible ankle and hip mobility. I had a history of leg injuries and a lifestyle that did not encourage correct movement and posture contributed to my extremely poor lower body flexibility.
These problems made many physical activates like golf which I love, difficult and un-enjoyable.
After several disappointing visits to various physiotherapists, Coach Jonathan and his staff at Genesis Gym helped me regain mobility and function in my body. All this took only 4 short weeks, I am now performing all athletic movements with the proper technique and form that I now know that I should have had ages ago!
I have found my “fountain of youth” at the Genesis Gym with Coach Jonathan and his team! Looks like I won be headed to any other fitness center anytime soon! And I know that I won’t need any kind of joint replacement or operations either. Martin Fum, Law Student, National Youth Golfer
“I have had unstable and aching knees for more than 5 years. They ached even when sleeping and when doing very basic activities like climbing on and off a bus or car. I used to play sports like badminton and basketball but was not able to due to my knee. I came to Coach Jon to have it looked at and in just 20 mins the pain was gone! I must have saved hundreds or even thousands of dollars on physio and medical fees. Thanks Coach Jon.” Kit Wong, MBA Graduate, Singapore
I came to Genesis to have my injured ACL in my knee rehabbed to full strength so that I could play sports at full speed. My knee is now feeling strong and healthy and I am able to play pain free.
Coach Jon is a real motivator and he helped me achieve more than I ever thought possible! The Genesis gym is much more than just a place to workout and sweat it out, there is alot of positive energy going on all the time and I think that is something rare and definitely not easy to come by nowadays.
The trainers are all very helpful and very passionate about their job. Just like Jon, they empower you and are always supporting you. The best thing about this gym? When they say they care, they really care. So it’s awesome!
Thank you so much Jon and all the other coaches! Cynthia Tan, Ultimate Frisbee Athlete
“I have had shoulder trouble for years. I could not even carry my groceries for my family comfortably. My shoulder ached even with the most simple of movements and I was unable to lift my arms overhead. In addition to this, I had terrible headaches for no apparent reason. I was visiting Singapore for just a few days so I didn’t even have a lot of time for treatment. But after just 3 treatment sessions with Coach Jon, I had full range of movement in my arms and shoulders and I could go shopping in Thailand pain free! Thanks Coach Jon.” Helen Lee, Australia
“I have been training for a long time and had good results but I have always had injuries. After consulting with Coach Jonathan And his team, they provided me a training program that fixed my imbalances and movement problems. They also taught me self massage techniques that helped fix my painful and frustrating injuries for good. These coaches really know what they are doing.” Sincerely, Lim Kah Yee, Accountant
My back was 7/10 pain (very painful!) when my injury occured. Coach Jon healed me with his gadgets and gave me medcines. I took them like I was told and i recovered the next day with the pain feeling lesser ( 3/10 ). The pain went away after a few more days.
Thanks Coach Jon ~ Phi Yao, Basketball Athelte

I actually had a right shoulder injury before I joined jon’s gym last march. it was called a SLAP tear. it hurt so bad that I could not rotate my shoulder completely, hanging on the pullup bar and could not play the sport I love: softball.
After being 1 plus year in Jon’s gym training, my right shoulder was even better and stronger than before! NO MORE PAIN when it comes to rotating my shoulder and I could resume playing softball. furthermore, I could even do 12 pullups (and counting) in one attempt! This is all thanks to coach Jon and his team.. KUDOS! Jenzus Hsu, Singapore Air Force
