Male Singapore Personal Trainer Carves Out Successful Career In Pre-Post Natal Fitness Niche
Singapore Male Fitness Professional Creates Waves With His In-Home Fitness Services For New And Expectant Mothers
By: RickFit Fitness Enterprise
However, in the Island Republic of Singapore, this notion has been gradually dispelled in recent years by the emergence of one unique fitness service provider - and a male one at that!
Rick Wong - one of Singapore's leading personal trainers for home and mobile fitness services at http://www.Body-
Inspired by his own wife's desire to continue exercising through her first pregnancy back in year 2002, and coupled with his personal desire to see her safely through her exercise regime, Rick - who was then already a certified personal and fitness trainer - decided to get himself enrolled in a Pre-And-Post Natal Fitness Specialization course to further arm himself with the right knowledge and skills to see his wife through her pregnancy.
And as the saying goes, he has never looked back since.
"I guess it was purely for personal reasons when I first decided to get certified as a Pre-And-Post Natal Fitness Specialist back then. However, along the way, I realized that there is indeed a market and demand for such services. Today, I must say that I've been greatly privileged to be able to have used my fitness knowledge and skills to help many of my women clients through the years to stay fit and feel good while they are pregnant, and to regain their body shape after delivery." Rick explains.
Today, as a husband and father of 2 growing kids ( aged 11 years and 7 years), Rick feels that being a male actually gives him a distinct advantage when training his female clients.

"It has also equipped me with the insight and ability to design truly refreshing, unique and personalized training experiences for my female clients, " Rick remarks.
Having personally seen his wife through 2 pregnancies, and being involved in his kids' upbringing through the years as a 'hands-on' father, Rick also feels that he is in a great position to relate to his female clients on the various issues that they face - such as concerns over excessive pre-natal weight gain, mood swings, postpartum blues, night feeds and even dealing with baby cries and tantrums.
Today, Rick's fame as one of Singapore's rare few male fitness trainers providing specialized female pre-post natal services is pretty known in his country of residence. His clients have also been approached by regional motherhood and women's publications such as - "Mother-&-
Nowadays, even as Rick's fitness services have reached across a wider spectrum of clients from different walks of life, he still maintains a 'soft' spot for one of his favourite 'special population groups' - the new and expectant mothers - who have played such a major part in the growth of his fitness business through the initial years, and who have helped in shaping and moulding his professional fitness career to what it is today.
