TOP 5 Kimberley Yap

top female personal trainer in kl

I do not know Kimberley personally , but i do know her partner, Noel Chelliah .

Both of them founded Daily Muscle , a boutique gym at A5-11 (5TH FLOOR), GLOMAC DAMANSARA  .

Kimberley Yap’s journey to personal training  has some interesting stories to tell ..

Kimbeley  represented Malaysia in three sports, Swimming, Triathlon, and Cycling at the SEA Games and has earned not one but two gold medals for Triathlon.

 Training was just part of her life.

However , things started to change in May 2014 . She was hit by a car on on her way back after training , and she was hospitalized for a month .

 ” Fortunately, she didn’t suffer any broken bones but acute whiplash (which she later found out could have paralysed her). She also had a concussion and deep lacerations on her limbs – one so bad her tibia (shin bone) was exposed – which took time, and a few skin grafts, to heal.

Till today, Yap has no memory of the accident. The last thing she remembers of that fateful day was getting ready to go for her ride. “

Fast forward ,today , she’s a trainer at Daily Muscle, a fitness company she runs with her husband Noel Maniraj Chelliah .

She is  a fitness specialist and personal trainer .With her strong sports background and intense training hours with the national team ,  she is one of the top elite trainer in town . Why do i say so ?

Well , most of the trainers  (including male trainers) , do have great certifications to support their career , but they do not have enough training experience for themself . Is just like a person that have a degree(certifications) but do not have work experience ( own training experience) .

Kimberley is a coach that has the degree  and also a CEO work experience .

She trains individuals and groups to help them improve their performance, strength, fitness, and even weight loss goals.
