Khaizal is a passionate Master REHAB and Functional Trainer who specializes in injury rehabilitation. As a trained sports massage therapist, he motivates people to achieve their fitness goals through education and encouragement.

In 2017, Khaizal suffered an injury while riding a motorcycle, which led him to learn about therapy, healing, and health. Since then, he has been spreading the word about the importance of health and making it a priority. He took a leap of faith and left his 15-year career as an aviation technician to become a full-time trainer and therapist.

Khaizal enjoys teaching and supporting people, and he is known for his thorough approach in guiding his clients. His experience as a rock climbing instructor 18 years ago gave him the opportunity to develop his skills and become an effective educator. With this additional skill set, he can teach and educate his clients, improving their physical condition and health.

In addition to his qualifications, Khaizal is also a Kettlebell training specialist. In fact, he won third place in the 5-minute Snatch Category at the Singapore Kettlebell Championship in his first Kettlebell competition!
