My body transformation journey: “My experience with Genesis was a truly refreshing and remarkable one, after having tried different methods unsuccessfully. My body fat percentage continues to drop progressively and my overall physical fitness and physique improved within the first few months.
Over the past year, my body fat percentage has decreased by 10% and I’m now at 17%, compared to 27% when I first started.”

Hi, I’m Kwok Wei and I’ve been a client with Genesis Gym since January 2016.
Over the years, a combination of factors has caused my weight to fluctuate and my health to deteriorate. Some of you may be able to relate to my experience, but I would also like to tell you that it is possible to turn your life around.
After National Service, my weight ballooned by 10 kilos during my 4 years in university. It’s actually not that hard to put on all that weight. Staying in the residence hall meant late night supper almost every night. Cramming for exams also meant snacking throughout the revision period.
And in 2012, I contracted Bell’s Palsy, which is a nerve damage to back of my neck. According to the doctor, it was likely a viral attack due to the low immunity as a result of stress, lack of sleep and unhealthy lifestyle.
Not wanting to take things lightly anymore, I started functional training with a friend in 2013, but that didn’t last too long. Then I started running and cycling with a colleague in 2014 and started training with a commercial gym. I did see some results in the beginning.
But when the weight increased again in 2015, I started to lose motivation again. I continued to fall sick easily and my energy level was always low. Although my weight was acceptable, my body fat percentage was high at 29%.
Not wanting to live the rest of my life like this, I was determined to find an effective solution and stick with it. I wanted to train with a gym that isn’t overcrowded during peak timings, coaches who are knowledgeable and can get me to my fitness goals in a safe and effective manner.
And I truly believe that I have found that with Genesis Gym. The coaches are very friendly. Every coach remembers me by name. The training environment is not intimidating. Every coach pushes me hard but at the same time ensures that safety is not compromised.
This was very different from my previous experience with the commercial gym back in 2014. There were no training programmes to follow and the exercises done each week were very random. I didn’t see any progress in terms of my strength and physical appearance.
Hence, my experience with Genesis was a truly refreshing and remarkable one, after having tried different methods unsuccessfully. My body fat percentage continues to drop progressively and my overall physical fitness and physique improved within the first few months.
Over the past year, my body fat percentage has decreased by 10% and I’m now at 17%, compared to 27% when I first started.
Friends and relatives have commented on how much fitter and younger I now look. I also feel much more confident about my appearance. Best of all, my energy levels are up and I feel more rested at night too.
My colleagues have also commented about my level of discipline in terms of my training routine and my nutrition planning. I’m sure that has also rubbed off positively on them too.
Genesis Gym is like a family member who is genuinely concerned with my well-being and my overall health, who is also equipped with the right tools to help me get into the best physical shape and state of mind.
I know it’s only going to get better from here. With the help of the knowledgeable and friendly coaches, I am looking forward to bulking up even more and increasing in my strength.
To me, nothing is more important than having a healthy body and mind. And my journey with Genesis Gym so far has transformed not just my physical appearance but has empowered me to live a much healthier and meaningful life. And that to me is priceless.
