If you’re looking to transform your body and improve your health for the long run, it’ll take more than some weekly strolls and promises of healthier snacking. With just the right workouts, expert guidance and nutrition know-how, you can get the results you want – and in less time than you might think. Here’s how this Singapore fitness provider can help you reach your health and fitness goals, with a winning formula that includes at-home personal training and nutrition coaching, plus bootcamp workout classes you’ll love.
The Athleaders formula
As a corporate professional working with major multinational brands, German expat, former professional football player and three-time triathlon winner, Bernhard Lieder understood all too well just how challenging it could be for working professionals to squeeze in physical activity, let alone maintain healthy eating habits.
After helping a colleague successfully transform his fitness and eating habits, word spread. Within weeks, Bernhard was leading a regular bootcamp workout with up to 15 participants. Requests for personal training and nutrition coaching continued coming. So, he launched Athleaders, which pairs personalised workouts and nutrition coaching with the convenience of coming to the client.
“Fitness is more than just an activity or exercise,” says Bernhard. “It’s a journey and a mindset. Everyone is unique, and that applies to their wants, needs and goals; a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work towards a sustainable fitness mindset. I started Athleaders to help share my own experiences and help guide others on their unique fitness journeys.”
Less than three years later, Athleaders has become a leading fitness provider in Singapore, attracting everyone from CEOs and managing directors, entrepreneurs and investors to creative professionals and artists, and stay-at-home parents.
Here’s more on what you can expect from Athleaders and its winning formula that keeps clients coming back for more:
#1 Personalised training by experienced athletes
Unlike the one-size-fits-all approach you find at many conventional gyms, Athleaders tailors each programme to the individual client’s lifestyle, goals and abilities. It all starts with a thorough consultation call with Athleaders to discuss your objectives, timeline and medical history. Everything from your work schedule to your past injuries is taken into account.
You’ll then be paired with the right trainer for you, depending on the results you’re after. The company has several certified personal trainers, ranging from Southeast Asia Games medallists and bodybuilders to CrossFit champions and marathon runners. Each brings his or her own specialty to the table – from weight loss and toning to post-pregnancy recovery and injury rehabilitation.
#2 A holistic approach to health and fitness
It’s Athleaders’ holistic approach to health that keeps clients coming back long after they’ve achieved that wedding-ready body or lost those last few pounds. Focused on more than just the “here and now”, the team aims to help clients build healthy habits that can be maintained long-term.
And, since exercise alone won’t cut it if you’re making the wrong diet choices, Athleaders offers customised nutrition coaching to complement its fitness training. In fact, this individualised nutrition coaching is included as part of all Athleaders’ personal training package, with certified nutrition coaches are there to support you every step of the way.
On top of guidance and goal tracking, you can choose to add on the option of personalised recipes. Plus, you can even have the nutrition coaches come to your kitchen for a full-on audit, and advise on what changes to implement!
#3 Coaching that comes to you
Convenience is key because, let’s face it, we’ve all got a lot to juggle. With everything from work meetings and business travel, to kids and social obligations, it’s easy to de-prioritise our health in the everyday line-up. But, if the workouts and guidance are brought to you, there’s really no excuse to neglect your health any further.
For this reason, Athleaders brings customised coaching right to each client’s doorstep. They’ll even bring the equipment! This not only makes fitness training and nutrition know-how more accessible, but also easier to stick to.
In addition to at-home personal training, Athleaders also offers private group training sessions. These small group sessions are tailored to participants and held at the location of their choice; that might be a condo lawn or a nearby park!
#4 Outdoor bootcamp workout sessions
Want to make friends and get a good workout in the fresh air? Who doesn’t! Athleaders offers outdoor group bootcamp workout classes that get participants sweating and socialising; the classes also nicely complement their one-on-one fitness and nutrition offerings. Incorporating HIIT, strengthening and conditioning, each bootcamp workout can burn up to 1,000 calories in a single session!
Hear from an Athleaders client
Indian expat Kingshuk has been training with Athleaders four times a week for the past year and a half. He hasn’t missed a single session, and has never felt better.
“I initially approached Athleaders to help me lose 10kg of weight, and to improve my overall fitness, both in terms of strength and cardio. I also didn’t want to waste extra time on travel to meet my coach somewhere.
As a sports person, I’ve always preferred training outdoors and mixing my training with sports drills, strength and cardio. My Athleaders coach understood my requirements from the start and customised my training programme accordingly.
I’m now 18 months into my training. I’ve lost all the weight I had initially set out to lose, and more. I have also managed to squat more than my own bodyweight, run five kilometres at a stretch (I always hated running) and get rid of the back pain that had bothered me for so long. Most importantly, in many ways, I feel fitter and stronger than I was in my 20s (I’m now in my 40s).
The Athleaders coaches are technically sound, have been extremely sincere about my training goals and have helped me gradually improve my baseline. I can’t recommend working with them enough.”
