Being a sport freak since my teenage years, I had to stop everything due to severe knee issues. Thanks to Aqua cycling I rehabilitated my knee and I can now enjoy working out again without suffering from knee pain! After witnessing this “miracle” Yannick and I decided to open Aquaspin™ together in Singapore, due to our love for the sport, and eagerness to share it with others on our summer island. I am a certified Spinning Instructor, Pre-post natal and rehab instructor as well as an Aquaspin™ P.R.O, having done my courses in Europe & Singapore. I have clocked in countless hours running classes for Aquaspin™, and my experience will make sure that no two classes are the same!
My clients call me ECP “Evil Chili Padi”. This is because even though I am small and super bubbly, I will make sure you feel the burn!
Coming from an active and sport orientated family, I have always loved moving and competitive sports. I found Aquaspin™ to be a revolutionary exercise technique, and through learning and focusing on the exercise while building our business, I grew more and more aware that this concept will change the way we exercise. I truly believe that Aquaspin™ is a revolutionary way to exercise, for all populations. My passion is transgressed through each class that I teach, and the constant will to make exercise more accessible and more beneficial to all, makes me strive to build our brand and programs globally.
I come from a rather physical background. I started playing volleyball at 11 and continued at a high level throughout my teens.
I then fell in love with dance and the hip-hop culture. I spent 2 years dancing and realizing it wasn’t just dance that attracted me, it was movement. I started journey in movement as a parkour practitioner in 2013. Today I am parkour instructor; a mover and a passionate fitness professional that loves helping others meet their goals.
I am certified by The International Sports Academy Singapore, with specialisation in callisthenics and parkour (ADD Academy). I am also an ACE certified Personal Trainer and an Aquaspin™ P.R.O.
33 years of working experience. I started out in retail sales (with French cosmetics YvesSaintLaurent and House of Nina Ricci). Subsequently moving on to Office Administration and Management before making a mid-career switch to the spa industry. I have worked in 5-stars Leading Hotels of the World properties in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Maldives, Lebanon, Morocco and Seychelles.
Computer literate, very familiar with Mindbody online and well-versed with customer service standards.
I speak, read & write: Malay (native), English (fluent), je me débrouille en français.
Otherwise, just your regular Singaporean Aunty-lah ?
After 10 long years in the finance industry, I’m finally pursuing my dreams. I started off my career in fitness teaching Boogie Bounce Xtreme. Having been a competitive swimmer from a young age, my love for water attracted me to water-based fitness . I got myself certified as an Aqua Aerobics Instructor by FISAF, started teaching Aqua Aerobics and now I am an Aquaspin PRO. Land spinning was never really my cup of tea but Aquaspinning was love at first sight! I love how the program makes you burn all those calories while having so much fun!
Started out with road cycling competing in races locally and overseas, I enjoy being on the bike & having the wind in my face. I then went on to teach Indoor Cycling/Spinning since 2008 at various gyms, and late last year, I was introduced to Aquaspin™.
I have both Russian and Swedish citizenship but I chose Singapore as my home!
I have over 15 years of experience teaching aqua aerobics classes in Singapore, China and Thailand. I am also a Wellness and Nutrition Consultant and Watsu (water therapy) practitioner.
You guessed it I’m an aquaholic!
I love teaching and bringing high energy to my classes. I really enjoy Singapore’s intercultural environment it is so interesting to meet people from all around the world!
I look forward to sharing my passion & enthusiasm for aqua workouts with everyone!
Since my teenage years, I have enjoyed group fitness classes. In 2016, I decided take things one step further and became a group fitness instructor.
I currently conduct programmes both in the water, as well as on land, and have experience working with special populations such as the elderly and those who are returning to exercise post-surgery. I enjoy the dynamics of working out in a group – encouraging each other through the toughest part of the programme, giving each other a pat on the back after a job well done and of course, bonding over kopi after class!
I am passionate about helping others meet their fitness goals in a SAFE, FUN and SUSTAINABLE way. I believe that the time spent and effort made to ensure a healthy and active lifestyle today, is one of the best investments one can make!
