I am an Integrative Fitness and Nutrition Coach and a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer survivor. I earned my Bachelor of Applied Science with a major in Food Science and Technology from the National University of Singapore. I am internationally certified and trained in Personal training, Strength and Functional training, Polestar Pilates, Basic Calisthenics. I am also certified in Precision Nutrition coaching and am proficient in managing the relationship between hormones and energy levels through nutrition and exercise.
I coach women all over the world, to get fundamentally stronger, supple and healthier from within to achieve lasting results. They range from busy and burnt-out corporate executives, overburdened mums and women with various diagnosed hormonal imbalances and gut/digestive issues.
With a focus lens of keeping the female hormonal system in harmony, I emphasize on energy and weight management – with adopting the right Movement, Nutrition and Mindset practices that works for each of you – using integrative health and fitness methods that are backed by evidence-based research.
My passion and mission is to empower women to embrace their own strengths and weaknesses, assist them to live a life of renewed vitality, while freeing their minds from obsessing on the aesthetics because I believe that women truly deserve to live a happy radiant active healthy life.

I was stressed out with work, bosses and life. I was based overseas alone and wanted to be with family and friends. My goals were to find peace of mind again. I was (am) at my unhealthiest and heaviest I’ve been in my whole life. I was totally unmotivated so I decided I had to take action to improve my lifestyle, even if it meant exercising only once a week. I will be honest – I hate exercising, like really detest it. But Yan makes it all better. I don’t look forward to my sessions but that has nothing to do with Yan because when I am having my sessions with her, I am having loads of fun! She is caring and encouraging, not a dictator. She pushes me but does it in a way that does not seem imposing. She knows how to get me to do that extra push-up. 🙂 My knees don’t hurt as much, that’s for sure. Hahaha I feel a lot lighter, I don’t pant after climbing flights of stairs.
I like that Yan allows me to take my time to change my mindset, she is not patronizing or condescending, and that has helped me build my confidence.
I HEAR HER VOICE WHEN I AM ORDERING FOOD OUTSIDE – SHE WINS SOMETIMES !
Yan has amazing positive energy that rubs off on you and she has a beautiful heart.
I’ve recommended Yan to others. My ex-boss is already working with Yan.

I have never exercised in my life. I hate perspiring and I hate feeling the ‘burn’. But with age catching up, I knew I had to do something radical to remain healthy. So when my colleague recommended her personal trainer, Yan, to me, I jumped on the opportunity to sign up with her, because she was exactly whom I was looking for.
She is a female (which makes me a lot more comfortable), and she exhibits a strong interest in my overall health, instead of only how I can lose weight. She is well-read and creates a personalised program based on my needs.
During our sessions, she is very involved (she doesn’t just stand around while I’m working out on the gym machines). She also takes extra care to ensure I push myself hard, without getting hurt.
While I still hate exercising, what’s important is that I am actually doing what I swore never to do – exercise vigorously and regularly.
I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND YAN TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO EMBARK ON A JOURNEY THEY NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE – A MEANINGFUL PATH TOWARDS GOOD HEALTH.
