I've had the pleasure to train with Vishal for more than a year: as a personal trainer,
he has changed my perception of working out. Due to my office job, I have problems with
my posture, but Vishal and Lotta helped create a custom training program to address my
personal short-comings. I've never been so strong and healthy - both physically and mentally.
Over the course of the first 6 months while training with Vishal 3 to 4 times per week, I was able to
gain 6kg of lean mass. When I started, I needed the thickest band to assist me with pull-ups,
but afterwards I could do 10 of them with 12kg of added weight, and I could squat over 100kg
for 5 reps while weighing 73-74kg. I never would have thought this was possible before!
It's money well spent and I continue to train three times a week.
Training with Vishal for the past 2 years has been an absolute pleasure. His
excellent technical knowledge on the fundamentals of health and fitness, as well
as his kind and motivating personality, made it so that every PT sessions was
something to look forward to, not dread. I believe he knows how to push you to do
your best, without taking you past your limits.
Vishal has single-handedly helped me develop the fitness skills and motivation
required to maintain my physical health now that I have moved away for University,
and I am confident that anyone training with him will come away with the same result.
Always a smiling face, I would wholeheartedly recommend Vishal as a personal trainer.
A little over a year ago I decided to finally get back into shape, I had not been in
the gym for a few years and being an athlete when I was younger I wanted to achieve
the same level of fitness I had 20 years ago. I started out on my own looking at
programs online and diets and after a few months of struggling I decided it would be
better to seek out someone from the industry that knew what they were doing. I was
introduced to Vishal and we worked out an arrangement for him to help guide my training
online. It was the best decision I ever made and Vishal's guidance has been invaluable.
He helps adjust both my programs and my nutrition on a weekly basis to keep me moving
in the right direction and it has not been an easy road! I had significant challenges
dropping body fat in the beginning, I also had injuries that I had to work around when
we first started not to mention several weeks without a gym due to Covid resulting in
home workouts. Vishal was able to adapt and make changes to the exercises and nutrition
which helped me continue to improve my strength and fat loss despite the challenges.
Another big improvement has been in my conditioning, I didn't realize the importance of
conditioning exercises until Vishal included them as part of my program and I was able
to recover faster and workout harder! We have been working together now almost 8 months,
I have lost 20lbs of body fat all while improving my strength and conditioning in the gym
which is not an easy task and I have Vishal to thank for that!
If you are thinking about getting in shape don't do it your own, your results will be much
quicker and more transformative if you have someone like Vishal to guide you through and
also help with the many ups and downs you will face. It takes dedication and commitment to
your training and your nutrition but Vishal's knowledge for me has been the key ingredient,
I can not say enough about the positive impact he has had on my fitness journey!!!
I had been one of those guys who has gone through the cycle of doing any and all
types of classes to having a more focused approach with a personal trainer. Results
had been mixed. Vishal and I began our sessions a few years ago. I was in need
of increasing my strength as well as my overall fitness level. Time to get serious.
Age, coupled with an extensive business travel schedule, really thwarted my attempts
at establishing a consistent routine.
Vishal took up this challenge by first understanding what I wanted to achieve, what
I had been doing in the past, and quite frankly, how dedicated I was to making a
change. He's been diligent, methodical, patient and professional. With my
aspirations in mind, he designed a routine aimed at building up my strength,
focusing on big body movements coupled with enough conditioning to where I started to
really see (and feel) some gains. He has challenged me. He has taken the time to
monitor my progress, never going too far, but constantly pushing for that extra bit,
that extra effort.
His delivery and approach to fitness is holistic. It includes the right amount of
advice & guidance for the actual time spent in the gym but he also brings a wealth
of knowledge regarding nutrition and diet. The full package for someone looking to
take steps in the right direction or to kick it into the next gear.
I’ve been strength training with Vishal for over a year! Despite being involved in
many different sports, I have never been a gym goer and was really nervous about it
but Vishal is so friendly and accommodating that these nerves disappeared instantly.
I’m not going to lie - it’s been tough but then it’s meant to be! We discussed
together what my goal was and started to move towards achieving it! Vishal takes the
time to know each individual and understand what motivates them! He can tell when to
push me and when to back off. He sets me so many little challenges that I always felt
like I was achieving something! I have always been my own worst critic but Vishal is
so motivating that I would always find myself laughing about what was making me mad!
I’m also VERY accident prone. Vishal worked around all my injuries and usually cared
more about making them worse than I did! He made sure that I still made gains despite
the injuries! He even worked with me via zoom during lockdown to make sure I didn’t
lose all the things we had been working on!
I think I told him I hated him or swore at him at least once per session but he just
laughed and kept pushing me! Honestly, couldn’t imagine training with anyone else!
I have been training with Vishal for almost 4 months now. Before this, I had always avoided
weight training; knowing very little about the right techniques, and lacking confidence to
go alone into the gym to use free weights or similar equipment. I knew about all the benefits
of weight training, and wanted a stronger leaner body, but was unsure where to start.
Vishal is extremely knowledgeable and has stacks of expertise, with a background in bodybuilding
along with many other disciplines. He has helped develop a personalized training program for me,
and the details of every session are super easy to access on his website. I’m also tracking my
nutrition and body weight on there too.
My confidence has increased a lot, and Vishal definitely pushes me harder to achieve stronger
lifts and pulls than I ever thought I could do (I’m more than capable of lifting even heavier,
apparently - so he tells me!). He deserves a medal for listening to me moan each week, but I do
appreciate his patience and understanding, and am really seeing the benefits. I definitely
recommend training with him at Synrgy!
