Which LAB product did you use?

I have used the Lab 360 attending many group classes and also the MASSATHON program.

Who were your coaches?

The coaches I have worked with have been Veronica, Vishal, Free and Paan. All very different but all extremely good.

What’s your background and how did you start training with The LAB?

My lifestyle changes stared for me around 3 years ago. Due to a busy travel schedule with work, lack of any exercise and an extremely poor diet, I had ballooned up to 127Kgs.

I’m now at 81kgs. I made a conscious decision that I had to change or my health would start to suffer. At that point my company had just transferred me from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok and I saw this as a fresh start. I joined another gym but it closed and so I hunted around Bangkok for a new gym that would fit my needs. And so begun my adventure with The LAB and it has been soooo good and worthwhile for sure.

Tell us about your experience at The LAB.

My experience at The LAB has been nothing short of positive and educational. Before joining, I was focused on smashing out as many HIIT classes a week as I could and not focusing on any strength training. The LAB coaches essentially educated me on the importance and benefits of strength training, which is now my main go-to workout, and only one cardio class a week.

The MASSATHON program was amazing if I’m being honest. The coaches made it fun, interesting and educational. They actually made it to be a lot more than just trying to lift more weight every week.

Tell us about your results.

Although MASSATHON was interrupted by our new friend COVID, I managed to achieve, what I feel were incredible results. I dropped 8kgs in fat and increased my muscle, strength and overall body composition. I honestly cannot stress enough how good and impactful this program was. I, for one, got far more than I expected from the experience.

How do you feel about your training at The LAB?

I can’t say enough positive things about The LAB.  The great choices of classes, the attitude and knowledge of the trainers, the family atmosphere, the helpful front desk staff, and the desire to help everyone get the results they desire. And added to all of this, the way in which Rich and the rest of the team stepped up during the Covid-19 situation was truly amazing.

How do you feel about your training at The LAB?

Training at The LAB is nothing short of a positive, fun and tough, but rewarding experience. The facility itself is top class however, it’s the coaches that make it. They are just incredible.

Extremely patient, friendly and they know how to guide and instruct whilst always making it fun, even when they are destroying us!
