Meet Our Trainers
The term "anti-gym approach" was coined by our award-winning lead RAW trainer, Glenn Ang.
Graduated with an Exercise and Sports Science Degree, Glenn Ang founded RAW in 2017. With over twelve years of experience as an elite personal trainer and previous experience as fitness manager in Fitness First Sport Performance Club (Capital Tower, Tanjong Pagar), Glenn has been coaching and educating over 320+ fitness coaches across Asia, in countries like Philippines, China, Jakarta, and Singapore (Fitness First Singapore and Virgin Active Singapore).
He is also the only Personal Trainer that clinched the prestigious Personal Trainer Of The Year Award, twice in Asia (2017 and 2018), making him one of the most peer-recognised trainers in the fitness industry.
With perseverance as his main personal core belief, Glenn has never stopped improving his approach for RAW.
His anti-gym approach is a testament to his belief.

Meet our Personal Trainer & Sports Massage Therapist, Sam! He has been a fitness instructor since 2016 and a sports therapist since 2017, with 17 certifications under his belt (as of 2020) and his determination to excel is reflected in his DIRECTOR’S ROLL OF HONOUR during his studies.
"What truly sparked my passion to become a fitness instructor, instead of continuing with business information system, was how exercising does not just improve your physique, but changes your life through improving on your health & wellness.
I have also progressed to become a sports massage therapist, as it became a cause of concern to me, when my clients made remarks about pain from trigger points. I wanted to not just be able to help them with their problems, but understand more about why it happens.
My goal is to be able to not just help you improve on your life, but make an impact on the importance of fitness, not just through exercising."
Meet our Personal Trainer, Wee Hoe! He has been a fitness instructor since 2013 and with 7 years experience in this industry, with 24 certifications clocked till date (2020) and is still on his journey to absorb more knowledge through courses.
"Having been involved with sports since a tender age, it shaped me to be who I am today and helped me to realise what I really wanted to be. Not just a fitness trainer, but someone who will be able to go beyond that, and give guidance to spark intrinsic motivation within themselves.
One may ask: why am I a coach on top of being a personal trainer, and the answer is relatively simple. I want to improve people's ability to perform, which in turns benefits them as an individual and a team player. One will understand this when he or she reaches a stage in life, where the importance of being able to put oneself first before holding themselves responsible for another.
It being self aware which leads to becoming selfless."

From a young age, our founder and lead trainer, Glenn Ang, saw his uncle as a role model. That uncle was a guardsman, who embodied many traits that Glenn admired.
After surviving a plane crash, Glenn’s uncle stayed strong and optimistic, despite having to live with third-degree burns and organ failure. Inspired, Glenn followed his uncle’s footsteps and signed on as an NSF guardsman. After a few years of being an army regular, Glenn came to a realisation that he was in a rut - without paper qualifications, he could one day become like the elderly guardsmen he encountered, leading an aimless life.
Glenn decided to have a career switch. He knew it would be tough, but he also knew that tough was the way to go.
In 2009, Glenn became a fitness trainer at an international CBD gym. A few years later, as his clientele steadily grew, Glenn become a freelance personal trainer. In the same year, Glenn graduated with a sports science degree, and took on the role of a full-time fitness manager in another international CBD gym. After committing 2 years to that role, Glenn took a leap of faith, and opened his own gym.
In December 2016, RAW was born. After months of hard work and perseverance, RAW finally caught the market’s attention.
Currently, RAW conducts both personal and group trainings. While personal trainings target PMEBs between 30 and 40, group trainings are usually great as team bonding amongst younger executives.
