  • Ali is an inspiring, calm, knowledgable and passionate fitness instructor and mentor. She has opened my eyes to the benefits of Vinyasa yoga for athletes and I've seen huge improvements in my practice in just three months. She has provided invaluable advice regarding my road cycling technique and group riding skills, as well as improving my nutritional and weekly training platform. I have just started her boot camp sessions and she rallies the troups rain, hail or shine to be the best we can be. She is a one of a kind - an excellent combination of motivation and compassion for her clients.

  • My health has dramatically improved since knowing Ali a year ago. She carefully listens and assesses your health ecosystem before prescribing a holistic lifestyle program covering food, supplements, exercise and even sleep. Training with Ali is tough - she will sensibly push you to your limits and encourage you to continuously improve yourself both in and out of the gym. She will not accept laziness and excuses (warning: you will be punished in the gym if she smells laziness). I am in the best shape of my life and my wife is surprised by the lean muscle and flatter tummy not seen before. If you want to transform your body and mind and develop healthy habits at the same time, Ali can help you get amazing results. Look good, feel good, peace

  • For years I have read about the benefits that kettlebells would have on my strength and conditioning. This reading also came with the warnings of the potential injury if practiced without proper form. Not only was it difficult to find someone to train me, but as an introverted individual, I most often feel uncomfortable around new people. During my travel to Hong Kong, I was very fortunate to meet Ali. Ali created a nonthreatening, playful environment, while also providing a challenging routine that left me wishing I had met her sooner! Very attentive, Ali emphasized proper form and alignment which helped to boost my confidence with handling kettle bells. Now, as I continue to travel the world, I have no fear of grabbing the nearest kettle bell and getting a great workout! Her knowledge goes far beyond kettle bells and I recommend her for any fitness training.

  • Ali is an outstanding master of her craft! She is incredibly bright with a treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge. She is an expert in cycling, weight training, yoga, nutrition, functional movement and she has a warm, approachable personality that makes working out fun. Ali is the perfect combination of diverse training methods, her goal setting is challenging yet achievable and her enthusiastic commitment to her work and ultimately her clients is the standard by which any trainer should be measured. Ali is the real deal, she sets the foundations for anyone wanting a new healthier lifestyle.

  • Efficiency, effectiveness, quality, goal oriented and needs aware are just a few of Ali’s qualities. She is a practitioner of applied common sense when it comes to overall wellbeing. But also knows how to successfully press forward in pursuit of continuous improvement. In short, Ali embraces the dynamics of change in her personal life that that of her clients as she treats each as an individual.

  • It is a couple weeks gone since our Hong Kong cycling tour with you. To be honest we did not expect all that fun along with quality we received in Hong Kong. Carbon bikes we got from you were just fantastic and fit as agreed. I uploaded the trip onto my StravaApp and I am looking forward to repeat a trip with you in some other place and time. Maybe Australia…shall see. The answer to everything in life is no until you ask for it. We asked for it. Thank you Ali. Travelling with pedals is a way to survive boring business trips.

  • While visiting Hong Kong for a few days, I wanted to go on a bike ride and am so glad to have found Ali. She was the perfect guide and is incredibly knowledgeable about all the best roads, hill climbs, and coffee spots for local cyclists in Hong Kong and can tailor your ride to whatever kind of terrain you want to ride or areas you want to see. The rental bike itself - a high-end carbon road bike with Zipp wheels - was unbelievable and a joy to ride. Riding with Ali is a great way to stay fit, experience Hong Kong, and not to be missed!

  • I had been to HK many times and never thought that you could actually ride its hilly roads on a bike. Ali's tour was awesome - we climbed to the Peak in the mist, rode to the distant beaches and met many HK cyclists on the way...all friends of Ali so it was not only a physical experience but also a social experience on the HK roads. Next day i booked another tour...this time to test my legs on 'the Beast' and the climb to the Big Budha on Lantau Island...wow...what an amazing scenery and physical challenge in the heat! I would recommend to book a cycling tour with Ali any time you visit HK.

  • I had a fantastic morning ride with Ali in January.  We spent the time climbing the horrible hills of Hong Kong island, and Ali paced it perfectly, getting me up one final ascent of Mount Davis Way when I didn't think I had it in me.  Fun, hard, and with all the logistics sorted for me so I could just turn up ready to go on my flying visit to HK.  Thanks! Jim L

  • For 15 years I’ve tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle but, like most diets and healthy eating programs, it was hard to keep. Not only was it hard to change long term I was constantly tired, hungry, and unhappy from the guilt of not keeping my own goal. Every time I was on the diet I was hungry, moody, unhappy and craved sugar more than ever.  In short, I was miserable. When Ali introduce me to her 21day transformation course a whole new world open up to me.  Everything I knew about healthy living before was false. The 21 day transformation program has truly transformed me. The results are astonishing. I no longer crave sugar or any carbohydrate based foods. My cravings under control and I have more energy.  I no longer suffer from stomach pains, digestion problems, bloating, menstrual cramps, and head aches. The greatest feeling is that I know I will be able to continue with primal living because I don't feel deprive and I’m happy. It is truly life changing.
