Malaysia’s first & only NIKE NTC Master Trainer
Hi, i’m Emelda Vincent and i am a certified Female Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, NIKE NTC Master Trainer and Swimming Coach with over 15 years experience in the fitness industry here in Kuala Lumpur & Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.
I have been an avid fitness enthusiast all my life. Health and fitness have been my passion since young and it was only natural that I picked the fitness industry as my career. I started off as one of the national swimmers representing Sabah and Malaysia in the year of 1989, when I was 8 years old up until the year of 1997.
Realizing that my passion was also in helping other people achieve their fitness goals, I kickstarted my career by working as a personal trainer from the year of 2000 onwards starting with Clark Hatch. In 2001, I moved to Fitness First where i was nominated ‘Employee of the Year’ in 2002. I joined True Fitness in 2005 as assistant group exercise manager, and subsequently went on to a full managerial role with YFitness Zone in 2007. I went on to become a Personal Development Coach with Celebrity Fitness in 2009 till early 2014 when i joined Jatomi as GX Manager, in my final role before starting Emelda Fitness.
In 2014, i was honoured to be appointed by NIKE as Malaysia’s first and only NIKE NTC Master Trainer, specifically for Nike Training Club (NTC) with responsibility for South East Asia. My role requires me to conduct training and events for NIKE NTC’s other trainers and customers. Check out one of the recent NIKE events here.
In order to improve myself, I also enrolled myself in other types of fitness courses and as of now, I am an internationally certified instructor for Body Pump, Body Balance and Body Combat and certified in Body Jam, Body Step and Body Attack from Les Mills. Since then, I found another passion in group exercise as I feel that this is another great and fun way to exercise.
One of my goals in life to promote a healthy lifestyle and I feel that it is extremely important to raise public awareness about its importance. Hence, I agreed without hesitation when I was approached to make a weekly appearance on the NTV 7 Breakfast Show (October – December 2010) on behalf of Celebrity Fitness to spread the word about healthy lifestyle. Apart from that, I have been been featured numerous times in newspapers and magazines on health and fitness topics.
