“I like thinking big. If you are going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.”
This motivational quote provides Mr Kevin Chiak, winner of Mr Singapore 2010, a constant reminder to continue to aim for the skies as he keeps himself motivated for any challenges that comes his way.
Mr Kevin Chiak is the founder of Kevin Chiak PT Studio Pte Ltd and The Image Maker Academy, 2 top class training and coaching centre which include adult personal training, image grooming and life coaching. Kevin Chiak PT Studio specializes in three main services: Adult and children fitness training, medical conditions and special population exercise coaching.
Fitness training is targeted at people who are looking for healthy ways to lose weight/fats, enhance sports performance and simply to look good. Mr Chiak not only manages the company but is also hands-on as its in-house master trainer. Graduated Master of Science in Medical Fitness Specialization and being an accredited EIMS – Clinical Fitness Professional, Kevin wishes to also help train and provide remedies to bridge the gulf between medicine and fitness to deal with the many medical problems and special population groups created by the Anti-Lifestyle (habits consisting of: poor fitness, poor nutrition, stress, lack of rest, smoking, and drugs). The chronic illnesses that they exercise prescription and nutrition advices for are arthritis, asthma, diabetes, osteoporosis and problems of that alike.
Mr Chiak explained his decision to set up this company was all due to his passion in bodybuilding and his aspiration to want to help others build up their self confidence. He further shared about his personal experience from being a one that has low self esteem, confidence at its nadir, to now a renowned body builder and successful entrepreneur brimming with confidence.
The journey to success was never without its glitches. Mr Chiak recollected about his initial struggles, “We started small in a community centre. Back then, people would expect equipments such as treadmills with personalized system, and hotel standards bathrooms whereas we only provide normal ones. Also, expatriate clients and members don’t prolong their term with us as they would go back or move to another country.” However, with proven results and Mr Chiak as the company’s biggest testimony of its success, customers need not cudgel their brains anymore to search for solutions to their problems. Business began to pick up and Mr Chiak was able to reap the fruits of his labour thereafter. “I make the difference and we are the living testimony of the success for our programmes. We provide training to customers at their comfort level.” Mr Chiak declared with aplomb.
Already, plans for expansions have materialised. “We glad to introduce The Image Maker Academy, an exclusive professional image grooming and life coaching academy that formulates the art of making people feel good and look great.”
Sharing his thoughts about what entrepreneurship means, Mr Chiak associates entrepreneurship as achieving one’s own ambition, passion for service and the opportunity to integrate and contribute to the society.
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it is determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek. Know how much fire you have in you. Together with intelligence, skills and determination go all out in search of your goals!” Mr Chiak espouses.
