Hypertrophy specific Training
Train With Experts and get results
MEET THE coaches
As a coach over the last 6 years Iv’e focused on working with every day people- doctors, nurses, builders, bankers, and even teenagers who are just setting foot into a gym for the first time. (Real People, Real Results) I like to use more of a functional hypertrophy approach to building muscle and strength, not focusing on aesthetics, but making sure the client is also moving their body correctly first and setting performance based goals. As an initial starting point of all training programs I will use structural balance principles aimed at correcting weaknesses, faulty movement patterns, and tight muscles through corrective exercises. This can sometimes be as simple as following a 1:1 ratio between upper body push and pull movements as well as looking at antagonistic muscle groups. I believe this applies to everyone regardless if you want to jump up on stage and compete in a physique competition or just feel better playing with your kids on the weekend. This sets up a strong foundation and provides longevity in and out of the gym.
I’m Kim Leggett, a former Miss Universe Malaysia, Face to Face and Online Coach with over a decades with of experience dating back to 2010. I have competed in numerous WBFF and IFBB shows as a fitness model and specialize in body transformations, strength & hypertrophy training and comp prep with a big emphasis on nutrition. If you follow me on social media I am also a host of the Clean Health Industry Leaders Podcast and manage their Public Relations. I have been unhealthy, overweight, underweight and everything in between. However, these experiences and lessons have taught me a lot about training, nutrition and maintaining work-life balance, to transform into the healthiest, strongest and happiest version of myself. I love the life that I have built as a health & fitness professional and bikini competitor, where I can use my passion and enthusiasm to promote health, fitness and wellbeing. My goal is to add as much value as possible through educating my clients on ways to make sustainable lifestyle changes through diet and resistance training to get achieve their goal physique!

A tip from our Head Coach Nic McWilliams:
When training at home it is challenging to work your key lifts with the same amount of weight you usually use, and to do so in a safe environment. I suggest focusing on technique, mind muscle connection and stimulating the muscle with hypertrophy specific training methods such as tempo, time under tension, less rest time between sets and higher reps.
